My name is Mustapha I was Born and raised in imlil vally, a Berber village situated in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains...The peace and wonderful landscapes made an amazing impact on my personality.As I am usually in contact with the nature, So passionate about hiking, It enriches my inspiration to walk in the wilderness, mountains as well as pass through Berber villages. It's the best way for me to go deeper and have time for my beautiful inner peace, which made me super creative .I love painting, sculpting and photography.

I organise trips for many years, and I will be so happy if you could share with me your point of view about my region.

Today's tour with Mustapha was amazing. It is the best tour we have ever been to. He is so knowledgeable because he is a Berber local, he explains everything from the beginning and looks after all their guests. The traditional meal is at his parents home in the village, amazing meal. Next time we would like to hike the whole mountain thanks a lot Mustapha

I don’t know if I can say anything different to the other positive comments, but Mustafa is a truly a genuine guy. At the age of 22, he has already achieved so much and has been a great support to his family! It’s seriously amazing. You get to do everything that he and the other reviewers have mentioned (all worthwhile). Our group was lucky enough to book this tour on a Tuesday so we got to the see the weekly local market and I got to buy my own tangine pottery from there for only 13DH each (they range in prices and sizes but so cheap! Mustafa was a great help in talking to the locals and paying for me first as I didn’t have small change). Something I really admired about him was that he was very truthful and honest, as I wanted to buy some Argan oil at the women’s cooperative but they were super expensive, so I talked to Mustafa about it and he agreed with me and recommend other places that were better to buy and where they truly went to the local people that made it. I also preferred not to ride the camels (ethical reasons) and he was able to accommodate for me and I got a chance to walk and talk with him while everyone else was riding. Just a real genuine guy. Great tour, truly recommend it. Absolutely loved the drive (great driver (saved our lives at one point)) and the hike to his family home and to the waterfall! Def deserved our tip! Thanks again Mustafa, to you and your family for cooking us such a delicious and bountiful meal! Maybe next time, we’ll come back and hike that amazing mountain with you! ;) All the best for your future tours and your already-amazing English! :) Much love, Sarah & Steve

This tour with Mustapha was the best experience of Morocco. We felt being treated like VIP. First he stopped and bought water for us. After the camel riding we got a lot of information about Berber and their living way, about the Berber language and letters. He gave us during the day tons of information.

At the stop at the argan oil production we got breakfast and the presentation was without any pressure to buy. A very enjoyable stop without stress, so we supported them with a small buy.

At the mountains it's necessary with good shoes for hiking. We arrived at the waterfall got orange juice to drink from Mustapha, He cared about us the whole time. We got the opportunity to hike a higher way which was real fascinating.

At a genuine Berber family we got in their home invited to a very tasty meal. For two people the family of Mustapha served us three different meals and it was cooked for like five people instead of just for us two. Plenty of food and a nice Apple pie as dessert. That was a very enjoyable trip we had and Mustapha took his time with us without any hurry and stress. After such a perfect day we can only recommend everybody visiting Morocco to do this excursion, very good value for the money. Please tip for Mustapha because he's not asking you for any money and has a very good character totally opposite of the aggressive way you know from the market at Jamma Fna in Marrakech.

Excellent varied tour for all of the family. The walking had lovely views and was not difficult. Lunch at his family’s house was delicious and authentic. Pick up and drop off from our hotel. A great guy. Thoroughly recommended.
