Let me just begin by saying that this guided tour is hard!! Like... really hard - this is a 25 km hike in high altitude. I consider myself a quite fit 34-year-old bootcamp, crossfit and running every week and Ive been on multiple hikes in my life. This was a tough one! Our guide Omar literally ran up the mountains like a goat expecting us to be able to follow. This was impossible! There were no photo breaks, water breaks or pee breaks. He just needed to get from A to B as fast as possible it seemed. Yes, he was friendly and helpful, saving our lives several times when we got too close to the edges or were about to go face/bum down the steep mountain side. Did he give us any information about the nature, animals, the berber people or the environment? No. Did he tell us stories? No. He was just a person showing us the way - constantly walking around 100m ahead of us. Is this a hike for the average person? Sure, but be ready to suffer. You need to be able to cope with the high altitude 1900-2600m and a near run speed. It had said in the details of the tour that wed be passing by a market - we definitely didnt way any market, sadly enough. The good part is that youll be hiking in the middle of nowhere with no other tourists around. Good tour, although I really think they need to inform people to be in great condition, able to cope with high altitude and be experienced hikers. It doesnt say anywhere how long the hike is - we hiked 25 km which isnt possible for everyone. What do they do when they have semi unfit people or elderly average tourists?! A lot of the times there was no path and it was dangerous and steep. It was also quite expensive - we paid around 250 EUR for 3 people for a pickup, a hike, lunch and a drop off.
