Eva C – Oct 2021:

I would recommend Marrakech Desert Trips for your guided treks. With a guide, a cook (mule driver also), and two nights' lodging included in the price, it was excellent value for money. We had delicious meals. Our guide was really entertaining and knowledgeable. We had no prior experience at these heights or distances, but the guide kept us moving at a rate that was adequate for our physical level.

Mike N – Sep 2021:

We went trekking with Marrakech Desert Trips because we wanted to support a local company rather than one located in the UK and pay more. We are glad we did. Nidal at the office was fantastic in the weeks leading up to our trek, responding quickly to my numerous queries. They arranged our fantastic guide Hassan, cook and muleteer Ali for our incredible 3-day hike across the Atlas Mountains. We couldn't have hoped for a better experience.

Emily R – May 2021:

Marrakech Desert Trips took us on a fantastic 3-day hike in the Atlas Mountains. Mohamed was a patient and knowledgeable guide, and Ali prepared delicious lunches for us during the trip — we are vegetarians, and this created no issues. We were given route options, but the one we chose was ideal for our level of fitness and expertise (around 6hrs a day). The evenings at the various huts were pleasant, and we arrived in Marrakech feeling completely rejuvenated!
