The mountains were beautiful, the group was fun, and the guide was awesome!
The food was not suited at all for vegetarians and vegans.
When all the group members helped me out when I was sick


Knowledgeable, friendly, safe

Undiscovered Atlas is a great week of trekking, which, for me, was pitched at
the right level. There were some challenging parts to the trek, but not so
difficult that it was not enjoyable. It was great to visit a remote part of
the country, where there were few tourists, but the locals were very friendly
and welcoming. I felt like I had a proper break away from normal life, which
felt great! The food was simple, but fabulous and I enjoyed it all. I would
definitely recommend this trip to others.
Reaching the peak of Jebel Aklim was great, it was a challenging hike up but
felt great a the top!


Youssef was a great group leader. He was very experienced and knowledgeable
and had a good relationship with the group. He lead us across some remote
areas and I felt completely confident and ease at all times. Thank you
Youssef!

The rest of the team should also be thanked ie the drivers, cooks and extra
guide. They were all very professional.


Take plenty wet wipes, spare socks and underwear. There is no showering, but
it felt nice to put clean things on after the day's trek.

Also take blister treatment eg compeed and tape to prevent blisters.

Also, no electricity so taking a power monkey / charging device is useful if
you are relying on taking photos on your phone, for example.


The only negative part I can think of was the final meal. While the meal was
lovely, it was quite expensive ie over £30. I felt this was too expensive
and the food at the hotel in Taroudant would have been more than acceptable.
I would have liked to have been warned that the meal was going to be this
price so I could have organised my money more effectively. It was also quite
a drive to the restaurant from the hotel. I personally would have liked to
have gone straight to the hotel after the final trek, relaxed and eaten at
the hotel, then the following morning go into Taroudant shopping and then on
to the airport. This is my only negative observation, however, I enjoyed all
of the trip thoroughly and would definitely recommend it to others.

Excellent trip,quite tough walking in spectacular mountain scenery.The
camping was harder than I anticipated.It was very cold and windy at night
making it difficult to sleep.
I guess reaching the highest point,Jebel Aklim.


Youssef was very good and seemed to have everything well organised
He certainly organised some substantial evening meals and tasty lunches.
His english probably wasn't the best but it generally wasn't a problem


Take warm clothing for the nights, and ear plugs in case its windy and the
tent is noisy.I was glad to be allocated a tent to myself,I slept so badly it
would have been miserable if I had been sharing.

Our time in the Atlas mountains was a wonderful experience and we all found
each walk very different and the scenery was stunning. Our Riad was basic but
comforatble with a balcony giving superb views. The food was all local
produce and typical of the area, making the whole mountain experience very
authentic. Our visit to the local Hamman was a highlight and local village
ladies that assisted in the ritual all helped to make the afternoon a very
special one. One slight concern was that our walking guide Hassan was
spending hours in the hot temperatures without any food or water as it was
Ramadan. We all felt concerned that he was dehydrated by the end of the day.
A lovely kind and experienced guide.
We added a few more days on to our holiday to relax which made the walking
break into a holiday! A wonderful experience.

A well organised and smooth trip from booking to return back home.
Stay in Marrakesh at the beginning and end of the trip was excellent. We were
well looked after by our guide Hassan and the visit to the Medina and our
free time was well balanced. Hotel Gomassine was clean and the staff very
polite and helpful, Breakfast was plentiful and good, Plenty of shops and
restaurants within walking distance for topping up with water supplies and
food.
Comfortable bus (air conditioning may not be working) for the trip to the
mountain location but the ride gets bumpy once off the motorway - this is all
offset by the amazing and wonderful scenery en-route. Such variable landscape
and beauty. Good stopover points for refreshments and break.
Walk to the Riad from Anmiter is exciting - new location and scenery.
Twisting dirt track road and lovely scenery. Riad is basic accomodation but
clean with great staff. Food is excellent!
Daily organised walks will leave a memorable experience. Tough ascents but
worth it. Carry plentiful water and energy snacks. Our guide Hassan had
extensive local knowledge and the pace was reasonable for every level within
our group. Walks started at 8 a.m. and mostly back before 4 p.m. Walking
poles are very useful due to the nature of the terrain.
Trip to the hammam is fun and refreshing.
A really enjoyable trip!
Doing the Tizi'n'Ourghsan and Mt. n'Oughlagal walks - so different and the
views and scenery were breathtaking.


Hassan was superb in ensuring that we enjoyed our trip whether in Marrakesh
or in the mountains. Always at hand to answer our questions about the places,
environment and ' what's next' - extremely knowledgeable. He looked after us
during and walks and afterwards too. He was part of the group but everyone
recognized and respected him as the leader.
I would not hesitate in following him on another trip.


Visit the Jardin Majorelle Gardens and Berber Museum which is about 10-15
mins walk from Hotel Gomassine.
It was very cold in the mountains during the day and night so warm clothing
is necessary. take some extra snacks as there are no shops in the village.
Just enjoy!!!


Really happy at the work and effort of Exodus in supporting the village and
it's residents. Thank you for bringing water and electricity to the village.
