Overview

our Middle Atlas day trip begins when your driver from Fes Desert Trips picks you up from your hotel or riad in Fes at 10 am. (times can be adjusted to suit if needed, just ask us, we are always willing to help and are very flexible.)

This day trip incorporates visits to villages in the Middle Atlas Mountains (elevation up to 1360 metres above sea level) where you can enjoy breathtaking panoramas and breathe deeply of the clear, fresh, cool mountain air.

Firstly, you will be driven to the village of Immouzer, famous for its apples, fragrant and beautiful with apple blossom in the spring and in July hosts the famous National Apple Festival.

Next you can see the delightful Ifrane, a charming Alpine-styled, chalet filled town, nestling prettily in the atlas mountains and known as "The Switzerland of Morocco". It is a relief to visit these cool atls mountain towns if you visit in the summer, a pleasant escape from the oppressive heat and if you visit in the winter, Ifrane and the nearby ski-resort of Michliffen offer many snow sport activities.

Catching tantalizing glimpses of the Middle Atlas Mountains as you ascend into them through huge forests of cedar and cork, your next stop will be to explore Azrou, 'The Rock' in the local Berber language, an ancient settlement still lived in by the Amazigh (Berbers), Morocco's original inhabitants before the arrival of the Arabs. It is a lovely village with flower bed and cherry tree lined streets and green tiled roofs in the heart of the magnificent cedar forest, the largest in Morocco. Near here live the Barbary Apes, actually a type of macaque monkey, who may try to share your lunch. You will be able to see the tribal herdsmen and hard at work milling flour or engaged in traditional carpentry and carpet making. Enjoy haggling for a rug if you wish, especially if you arrive for the Tuesday market, as the prices here can be much lower than in Fes and the people are very friendly.

The Middle Atlas day trip finishes with a pleasant return drive to Fes where Fes Desert Trips will drop you off at your hotel or riad.

Great Sahara experience We spent 4 days with Mouha on a desert trip starting from Marrakech, travelling across the High Atlas, the Dra Valley and to Erg Chegaga for 3 nights, then back through Foum zguit and Tazenakht. Mouha is an expert guide and driver. He took care of everything, we had lots of fun and learnt so much about the culture and geography. Will be back for more.

Best Guide to Discover Morocco! My mom, a friend, and I found Discover Morocco 4x4 through a friend & trip advisor. This was a fantastic experience. If you have any doubts at all, i hope this review convinces you to book with them!Mouha tailored our entire experience to ensure we not only got to see what makes Morocco unique, but was also flexible in adjusting to fit our needs (ie: tired from jet lag or wanting to shop more!). We saw the ocean, mountains, desert and city scape. It was truly a great experience. I didn't feel any sleeziness that you often can with other tour experiences. This was very personalized and Mouha shared his own experiences living here as well. Learned a ton and would absolutely do it again in a hearbeat. Thanks again for the great experience, Mouha!!

5 Star Service Mouha and his team worked very hard to make our recent trip in Morocco a huge success. Mouha is very organized and responds quickly to correspondence. He clearly answered all of our questions as he prepared a custom itinerary for us. We were impressed with our promised vehicle and really liked our driver, Said, who was punctual, reliable and safe. The trip pricing was fair and clearly this team knows their business. Everyone was personable and kind. We felt we were in good hands for the duration of our over-the-road trip. We highly recommend Mouha and his team.

The best team to discover Morocco what an amazing experience with Mouha and his team, on my trip to Morocco with my family, we had the best service, very professional and reliable, without him the experience of discovering Morocco wouldn't of never be the same . I highly recommend them to visit Morocco the best way.

Marvellous guide for marvellous country Taking Discover Morocco 4x4 as our guide was the best decision we made for our trip in Morocco! Mouha, the man behind Discover Morocco 4x4 is incredible. We told him the cities we wanted to visit and the duration of our trip and then Mouha planned everything in advance. He validated with us the price ranges for the hotels and riads and he booked them for us. When we arrived, he picked us up on time and we started a great trip with him for a week. Mouha took care of almost everything. He arranged local guides when needed (in Fes medina for example). He suggested and booked marvellous restaurants. The guy is very funny and generous. He saved us a lot of time and energy! We discovered places we would never have know without him. It was real vacations for us: no logistics to deal with. We only had to enjoy the Moroccan landscapes and attractions! Mouha also became our couple's official photographer during our tour.At the end of our trip, we had a new friend!For our next trip in South Morocco, Mouha will be our guide again, for sure!

Best experience אני ומשפחתי נסענו לאחרונה למרוקו כדי לחגוג כמה חגיגות משפחתיות, כמו גם לבקר ולגלות מרוקו המדהימה , שהיא חלק מהשורשים שלנו.אני רוצה להודות במיוחד לנהג שלנו מוחא שלולא המומחיות שלו, הליווי המקצועי, האכפתיות, הידע ובעיקר תשומת הלב לכל פרט הכרחי, הטיול הזה לא היה אותו הדבר.הוא עשה מעל ומעבר, מהזמנת חדרי מלון, ריאדים, סעודות, סיורים וחמאמים (חובה מוחלטת) ועוד הרבה יותר.התחבורה בין הערים שביקרנו תוכננה מראש לשלמות וללא רבב. ממכונית נקייה ועד כיבוד קר בהישג יד.. ההומור והקסם הטוב שלו הם בונוס נוסף, מה שהפך את ההרפתקאה והביקור שלנו לתענוג והשאיר אותנו עם זיכרונות שנשמור לכל החיים.הוא נלהב וגאה בארצו.מוחא לא היה רק ​​הנהג שלנו, הוא הפך לחלק מהמשפחה שלנו!אני ממליצה על שרותיו בחום ובאמון מלא ומבטיחה על חוויה מרוקאית הטובה ביותר במדינה היפה והייחודית הזו!מוחא היה חלק גדול מהטיול המדהים שלנו!

Merveilleux sejour Mouha est le plus merveilleux guide qui soit. D’une gentillesse incroyable, n’hésite pas sortir des sentiers battus, nous raconte l’histoire de son pays avec beaucoup d’amour. De plus, il ne nous emmène pas dans des pièges à touristes et nous fait justement découvrir le vrai Maroc authentique.

Mouha is the Best! Our recent trip to Morocco would simply not have been the same without Mouha from Discover Morocco 4x4 guiding us every step of the way! He truly knows every corner of (and seemingly every person in!) the country, from the scenic blue houses of Chefchaouen, to the fish markets of Essaouira! He arranged for private transfers for our group from Tangier to Fes and Fes to Marrakech, with a day trip from Marrakech to Essaouria. All the while, he answered our (numerous!) questions about Moroccan history, culture, and customs. He has been leading tours for more than ten years and has the stories to prove it! Most importantly, however, he provided an honest perspective, letting us know if people were overcharging us in the market and never pressuring us to go to certain places or do certain things (as can unfortunately be common). All in all, Mouha is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and a blast to hang out with. Highly recommend Mouha and Discover Morocco 4x4 for any and all of your Moroccan adventures!

Discover Morocco 4x4 is simply the best! Discover Morocco 4x4 was absolutely amazing. Mouha, our guide, was extremely friendly and knowledgable. He arranged for private transfers between cities and a private tour of a city for my group of 7. My friends and I always felt safe in the car with him and were excited for everything he had planned. When I travel back to Morocco, I will absolutely have Mouha be my guide again. Thank you Mouha, we miss you!
