We had a great day in the Atlas, organised by Toubkal Guide, Our driver Ibrahim actually spent a couple of days with us. having also driven us to essouria the day before - he is just what we needed in a driver - friendly, informed, clearly putting our needs as a priority and very competent and safe in getting the car from A-B and back ! We were guided in the mountains by Ibrahim Agafay, who was a pleasure to spend half a day with - walking us around several berber villages and thorough the spectacular landscape, he’s got a good sense of humour and loads of experience. We will come looking for them again next time we are in Morocco

This company is the best value for money out there! For the competitive price, food, accommodation, a donkey, and the guide are included! We contacted them at 5pm for a tour for the next morning and they met with us last minute, which we were so grateful for. Our guide, Abraham, was very nice too and always made sure we were happy! All of us got to the summit too woohoo! Definitely recommend this company.

This is my first review for Tripadvisor because it is the first time I was so delighted with every aspect of the services provided by Toubkal Guide. We had the vacation of a lifetime in Morocco and Toubkal Guide was a big part of making that happen. A little background on me and my family. We have traveled much of the world and always done the planning and logistics on our own. My view of travel consultants is they were more interested in their self-interest than mine. I still feel somewhat like that but Toubkal Guide was a complete exception to that impression. This trip included my wife, our grown son and his finance. Our trip was for 10 days and by design we had only booked our initial stay in Marrakech at a Riad Kheirredine. I had done some research as to ‘top sites in Morocco’ but had no reservations beyond 2 nights in Marrakech. In my preliminary research I had gotten some initial cost for desert camps, typical drivers for portions of the trip and some broad cost for guides, hotels, etc. In my research I had seen a number of blogs that stated the costs given in Morocco to local’s vs those given over to non-Morocco residence were vastly different, so I decided to delay making commitments until I was in country. This proved to be a very wise decision. While at our Marrakech riad I ask for a recommendation for a travel consultant and without question was told Toubkal Guide was the best. How right they were. In a quick series of emails and phone calls I was able to give my high-level desires in terms of sites, experiences and preference for types of hotels. I knew right away that this would be a good experience because Toubkal Guide was a great balance between trying to meet all our expectations and providing more realistic expectations based on their local knowledge. For example, we had suggested one leg of our travel would be 10 hours based on goggle maps. Toubkal Guide gently suggested this was fantasy and if we tried to do this in one day we might all kill ourselves. We broke this into two days based on Toubkal Guide experience and realized how right they were. We all still liked each other after the two days, and I doubt this would have been the case in one day. Within a few hours I was given a preliminary itinerary which I made some suggestions and a quick turn around for a final itinerary with total cost. I was astounded. The accommodations include were 5 star, the transportation options excellent, include were almost all cost for meals, tours, etc. The total price was less than the cost I had collected for a few random things that accounted for maybe 25% of the proposed itinerary. Like any service company, at the end of the day it is all about the person that delivers the service rather than the company alone. In our case Toubkal Guide recommended Abdulla as our driver and guide for the entire trip and we could not have had a more perfect driver. I need a thesaurus for all his attributes: skilled, knowledgeable, flexible, insightful, kind, protective, helpful in negotiations, willing to fade into the background when needed, willing to change based on our whims, willing to advise us when we were making mistakes, etc. etc. Morocco is a big country and our itinerary called for some long rides. Surprising we were all glad to get in the car every morning to spend more time with Abdulla. In closing my advice is that no matter how experienced a traveler you are you need a partner to get the most out of Morocco. Definitely call Toubkal Guide and hope that Abdulla is available. Then sit back and enjoy one of the most fascinating countries in the world.

I travelled to Morocco from the UK with my 11 year old son. We were greeted by Abdul from Toubkal Guide at the airport and taken directly to the mountain village if Imlil, the vehicle was new, very clean and comfortable with seating for 8. We arrived at the Riad just outside of Imlil mid afternoon. Karima greeted us and showed around the beautiful house, the bedrooms were extremely comfortable all en-suite and my bedroom had a balcony overlooking the valley. I honestly couldn’t have wished for a better place to stay. A delicious Lunch was served on the roof terrace soon after we arrived which consisted of lentil tagline, salad and bread, there was options of chicken however we had requested vegetarian food. After that we walked approximately 5 km to some beautiful waterfalls. When we got back to the hotel we met our guide Hamid who would be escorting us up the mountain in the morning. Hamid showed us on a map where we would be walking and pointed out the rest places. We arranged to meet him at 9 in the morning to set off on our trek. Because I had my son with me Karima had arranged for a 2nd guide to assist which Was not expected and was rather thoughtful. Evening meal was served at 8 and again it was s lovely banquet of vegetarian food. In the morning we set off on our trek and got to know our guide. We had a chef and a ported accompanying us. I can highly recommend our guide Hamid and if you decide to use Toubkal guide I would definitely ask for Hamid to be your guide. His English was exceptional and he was very knowledgeable. He was also very encouraging and helped to keep our spirits high. I am pretty certain we wouldn’t have made it to the top of the mountain if it wasn’t for him. When we arrived at Basecamp we enjoyed another lovely meal prepared by our chef. We were up at 3am to start the trek, it was very dark and we were very excited. We summited at 8:00. One member of the group started to feel the effects of altitude sickness just before we reached the top but Hamid was very competent and dealt with the situation very efficiently taking the member down 100m. Upon reaching the bottom of the mountain we travelled back to Marrakesh to over night in another beautiful hotel. Unfortunately we had to depart at 7 the following morning for our flight. The hotel was in a prime location and central to all Marrakesh has to offer I was very tempted to stay an extra night. I would definitely recommend using this tour company and in particular Hamid as a guide. Please feel free to message me if you have any questions

Ibrahim was our guide and driver. We had an amazing trip. The camel ride was great (kid friendly), the scenery is wonderful and the food was delicious! Can’t ask for more!
