Hike the highest peak in North Africa: Mount Toubkal (4167m)

Had a fantastic time with our guide. Everything was superbly organised. The taxi pick up and drop off were ready for us both times, all meals were fantastic and the route taken was breathtaking. The second day is hard but worthwhile. We both felt that two days was the perfect time as three days prolongs it too much. Cannot recommend this enough.

Trekking in Morocco: Mount Toubkal & Erg Chebbi Dunes

We took a guided trip through the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert and couldn't have asked for a better company to have done this with. We were fully looked after and had no complaints - just a lifetime of great memories that we left Morocco with. I would highly recommend the booking process through Explore Share!

Climb Mount Toubkal, 2 days trekking in Morocco

We had an incredible 2 day trip up Toubkal, both the views and the trek were amazing. Our guide Mohammad and Sonny were amazing and so helpful and welcoming. We felt well looked after the whole time and enjoyed every minute. The food was plentiful and delicious, and all equipment hired was of high quality. Our stay at the refuge was even better than we imagined it would be, warm and comfy. We had the best time and would highly recommend this trip to anyone else!

Hike the highest peak in North Africa: Mount Toubkal (4167m)

The guide was very responsive when I tried to find out more about the trip before booking. The trip itself was amazing! The guide was very knowledgeable and loves a good joke as well :) My mom, who isn’t the fittest hiker, joined as well and the guide adapted the pace and was so supportive. Back in Imlil we found out that we had some problems with our rental car and the guide, with the help of some other people nearby, fixed the car for which we are so greatful! Best trip with a great guide! I cannot recommend it more!

2-day Trek to the top of Toubkal (4,167m) in the Atlas Mountains, from Marrakech

Lahcen was an AMAZING guide!! Our group of 6 girls had very mixed fitness levels. He was a great motivator and did what he could to get us to the top! Highly recommend this trip and Lahcen as a guide! Make sure you have good shoes and warm clothes... we wish we would have been more prepared!
