  •   We had a great time with Rachid who joined us for our trip to Jebel Toubkal - the highest peak in the northern Africa. We helped us to reach the summit early morning so we experienced very nice sunrise almost on the top!

  •   We are a couple in our 70s. We have done a lot of different mountain walks but this is something totally different. The paths are quite difficult in places because the stones can make your feet slip. So having Rachid as our guide with Ali as muleteer and cook was BRILLIANT! Rachid was an excellent guide who altered our itinerary to reflect the fact that I was rather ill at the time. Normally I lose weight on treks but with Ali producing banquets for three meals per day I didn't. Rachid organised all the accommodation which varied in quality but when in the mountains you don't expect the Ritz. In Imlil valley we had a wonderful room with a comfortable double bed and an en suite shower room. Fabulous. If you're heading for the Atlas get hold of Rachid. He's a good guy.

  •   Had an amazing time with Rachid completing a hike of Toubkal. He respectfully made us push our limits to ensure that we would get the most out of the trip. Would definitely recommend.
