Marrakech, Grand Desert Tour & Hiking in the Atlas Mountains - 7 Days - Apr 29 - May 6, 2019
This is the second trip we’ve arranged through kimkim, and it was again excellent. Abdullah was very patient with juggling 3 different groups with a variety of itineraries, interests, and length of travel times so that we could travel together when possible.
We especially enjoyed our time hiking in the Atlas Mountains and exploring the area around Aït Ben haddou. The drivers/guides got us everywhere comfortably and safely. They were available to answer questions but allowed us to absorb our surroundings quietly when we wanted to. We had a couple of donkeys with us on our Atlas hikes, led by Ibrahim and Ibrahim (I think). They - the Ibrahims - were so sweet and encouraging to one of our hikers who had a problem with her leg and had to hike more slowly. The donkeys can be ridden by tired or injured hikers, but they’re pretty small for us big Americans.
Marrakech was both invorgating and enervating, not to be missed. Riad Pasilla was a gem, quiet and beautiful, and a welcome haven from the frenzy of Marrakech. We didn’t want to leave!
Thanks to Abdullah and company for providing a wonderful experience.
