I MISS MOROCCO BECAUSE OF Mustapha!! Total 5 stars. We traveled before the coronavirus took hold in Morocco. I've never felt so safe despite this scary time! Halfway through the amazing Atlas mountains, people started to hear news about the cancelation of flights and were frustrated. Mustapha continued, supportive, calm, and helpful. THE BEST reaction! We all decided to come down for everyone's safety, so instead of continuing climbing, we were served the best Moroccan tea, and he even made us a full-blown 3-course LUNCH up the Atlas mountains!! I mean, WOW. That. Was. Hospitality. At its finest. GO BOOK IT, NOW. And give Mustapha what he deserves. WE LOVE africa!!!

My 9-year-old son & I had a perfect day with Mustapha! We loved the camel riding & our highlight was the little hike to the waterfalls & especially to Mustapha‘s family who invited us for an excellent Berber lunch! Gorgeous memories we will never forget! If you are in Marrakesh, do the Atlas Mountains excursion with this company especially (Mustapha)! It is the best you can get! Tina & Kalle from Germany
