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!

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!
