Best 1-Day Trip Marrakech to Imlil Village

What a fantastic tour! Our guide and driver Hassan was the best guide we had on our Morocco vacation. He was extremely knowledgeable, genuine, personable, and more than happy to stop by when we wanted to take a photo (and he even bought us some fresh cherries on the way home!).

The tour said there was no forced shopping and that it was fine (and very refreshing compared to other tours we’ve been on). Lunch at the Berbers was delicious, in a very peaceful setting and we also really enjoyed the mule ride – the guides took good care of us.

Imlil and Atlas Mountains Day Trips from Marrakech

We booked the Imlil tour and the next day the Essaouira tour. We had the chance to spend two amazing days with Said and his team in the Atlas Mountains and in the Atlantic Sea.

The whole team is extremely friendly and answered all of our questions. Anytime we wanted to stop for drinks or photos they would and we always felt like they value their job and love what they do.

We can recommend this good boy! Next time we are in Morocco we are sure to book a desert trip with them!

Thank you, Saïd and Hassan. We hope to see you soon!

Full-day Trip Marrakech to Imlil

We are a family of four, with a 21-year-old boy and an 8-year-old. 1 day we did the Marrakech city tour with Hassan and Said, which was wonderful. I really don’t think we would have had the same experience of walking ourselves. Hassan was quick at the hotel to pick us up and Said really did a great job touring the sites with us and really educating us about Marrakech.

On the second day, Hassan picked us up for the day trip to the Imlil Mountains and the High Atlas with a donkey trek. It was such a beautiful day and it couldn’t have been better. Hassan is a pleasure to spend time with and he really has patience with tourists (we have so many questions!). We took donkeys to a Berber village for lunch and did a little hike.

I can’t say enough about MTC, what a perfect two-day adventure. Hassan was the perfect companion, Said a great guide to the city, and it should be noted that Hassan and Said were very responsive in setting everything up before our trip, answering a ton of questions and making sure we were ready. I can’t say enough about TCM … do yourself a favor and contact Said and his brother to book a visit or two !!


Fantastic Day trip from Marrakech

Our driver, Hassan, was amazing. Vehicle on time, clean and with air conditioning and safe driver. He made photo stop suggestions (no shopping as promised) and was very friendly and informative. We ended up walking instead of using a mule, nothing difficult but I would recommend runners or grippy shoes as there was a lot of loose rocks. The lunch was plentiful and a magnificent view of the mountains. I would definitely recommend a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech.
