    I don't know where to begin, as my experiences have been so captivating; I've had several, and each one has been incredible. Abdo and Soufiane are excellent guides, attentive to your desires and expectations. They know how to make you feel confident, explaining every detail (regarding the landscapes, villages, horses, etc.). They are very educational, funny, and incredibly kind. The hiking routes are well-designed, very safe, and the landscapes are breathtaking... Thanks to them, I fell in love with the country! Their horses are incredibly gentle, well cared for, and in excellent condition: no injuries, up-to-date farriery, etc. On top of that, you'll have plenty of memories with photos and videos... In summary, I can only recommend 100% minimum! Go there with your eyes closed 🇲🇦❤️
