My name is Mustapha. I was born and raised in Imlil Valley, a Berber village located in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains. The peace and the wonderful landscapes had an incredible impact on my personality. As I am generally in contact with nature, I consider myself passionate about hiking, as it enriches my inspiration to walk in the desert, the mountains and pass through the Berber villages. It's the best way to go deep and have time for my beautiful inner peace, which made me super creative. I love to paint, sculpt and photograph. I am absolutely in love with Marrakech because this city is part of me so I enjoy going there whenever I can. I have been organizing trips for many years, and I will be very happy that you can share with me your point of view on my region.

Wonderful daytrip despite initial issue with communication (I would suggest either not use the Group feature or GW if that's not the preferred platform & stick with WhatsappGroup or whatever it is preferred to communicate with the participants), but once that's sorted out, the day was engaging from start-to-finish & Omar REALLY took excellent care of 11 of us esp. on the hike up to the house for lunch & parts that may be challenging or slippery for hikers. Meeting the family members was wonderful and all the locals even the persistent hawkers at the end by the touristy fall (do bargain or be aware that whatever the initial price you shd half that and you will get multiple persistent hawkers follow you around to buy the bracelets, but all in all it went to a good cause -- i hope -- and you get a good feel about the Berbers that live in the mountain villages. Omar is also an excellent Instantgrammer taking all the pix along the way for the camel ride for memorable photos you can enjoy afterwards. HIghly recommend! (additional suggestion is to ensure those booked with AirBnB experience are charged the same price as the one on GW to avoid any misunderstanding wd be my suggestion. Not a big deal./differential but for consistency sake + just because the tour/amount of driving-time spent in the day is more than the charged price. I do hope Omar & the team can expand this because this is one true authentic experience unlike any of the other (I took 2) more commercial offerings.

Fue una experiencia fenomenal. Quedamos encantados. Omar es un gran tipo, muy amable y atento siempre. Los lugares a los que fuimos fenomenales. Los camellos no son la gran cosa pero todo el tour en si esta genial. La comida que ofrecen esta exquisita. 100/10. Recomendado 100%

We had a very nice tour with Mustapha, the camel ride is a bit touristy but also he took advantage of this time to explain us details about culture and ways of living in Morocco. The trip to the valley allowed us to enjoy very nice views, and once we got there we enjoyed nice home-made food at his place. After that the hike took us through the valley itself, but you can feel he knows and wants to share his place, since we were visiting areas where local people go. Also Mustapha is a very nice person, always taking care of the group's needs, providing fresh water frequently since it was a hot day, and giving information in an entertained way. Totally recomended experience

I lagged behind the other walkers but Mustapha took the time to take breaks so I could catch up. He was considerate about my well being. Lunch at his Moms house was excellent.
