Most enjoyed: The scenery along the entire trek (more spectacular than Toubkal), The challenge in particular sections (steep scree & soft snow slope).

My partner and I would strongly recommend travelling with KE Adventure Travel. The service from start to finish of our travel experience was outstanding. Our hotel was everything you needed - comfortable, clean, great breakfast and staff very friendly, catering for your every need and always willing to help. The tent accommodation was excellent, muleteers set tents up everyday on trek. Food on trip was excellent! Cook had excellent rapour with muleteers and worked very well together. This ensured great hygiene and quality of food. Our guide Mohamed planned our days in a way he knew the group could manage and would enjoy. Our guide explained history of villages and how the locals live day to day lives. Mohammed showed great guidance skills, patience and gave the whole group support and praise. Thank you to all the crew for a great experience. Mohamed AIT ALLA (our trip leader)should be highly praised for his leadership on this trek. Mohammed explained every detail of the day ahead and made the route each day very enjoyable with his knowledge of local lives and the history of villages and local peoples survival skills. Mohamed constantly checked on the groups wellbeing, Mohamed showed great patience and enthusiasm. Mohamed's people skills are excellent and has great rapour with the staff team and the trekking group. We hope to have Mohamed lead us on our next adventure as he made the whole experience brilliant. Well done Mohamed. Both my partner and myself, other than feeling tired at the end of each day but a satisfied tired, were in perfect health during the trip. We can't stress enough how brilliant this trip was. The whole group praised the guide and staff team on their performance. To say we enjoyed our holiday is an understatement, we are looking forward to our next adventure with KE Adventure Travel. A big thank you from us both.

Mustafa was out of this world. Best trek leader my parter and I ever had. Very knowledgeable and genuine. The diverse terrain of the trip was amazing. The cooking was fabulous, even for a picky eater as myself. The group dynamics were great.

The brochure does not do this trip justice! Fabulous trek in the Atlas Mountains
- each day different from the previous one. Lovely variety of mountains and
valleys. A real insight into Berber culture and shepherds semi-nomadic way of
life. Not enough superlatives to describe the trek.
Excellent trek leader, superb food, stunning ridge walk to summit of Mgoun and beautiful valley and gorge walks on last 2 days.

Mustafa was the best trip leader I have ever had. He takes pride in what he does. He is informative. He is extremely genuine. He is an asset to KE. The trip was amazing! Mustafa was an outstanding guide. The group had a fantastic time. Would definitely go with KE again and would recommend KE to my friends. Mustafa was very informative about the culture and people of the Atlas mountains. The trekking group were interesting and diverse. The scenery was superb. Finally, the food was surprisingly tasty - I think I even gained weight!

We had a very good guide. Excellent pace and information about areas we were walking through. He was a good laugh at all times and made the trip very enjoyable. Fantastic holiday. I would recommend it to others and we are definitely looking forward to our next KE trip to Everest Base Camp!
