  1. John H

    Jamal was quick to reply to my email enquiries regarding the 2 day toubkal trip. We visited in early November for the climb. Jamal organised everything for us, including storing luggage for us while we were on our trek.

    Ahmed was our fantastic guide. He was friendly, spoke great English, and was happy to answert any questions we had. He encouraged us to take breaks whenever we felt necessary, and knew instinctively when we were struggling a little. He knew exactly what to do when my partner got altitude sickness at the summit, and we could not have asked more of him. I would thoroughly recommend going with Ahmed.

    Hassan was our mule driver/cook and was great fun. His food was great, and the portions were huge! He also was able to have a great laugh which was appreciated.

    The first day (5 hrs trekking) was steady uphill, and the mountains were stunning. The mountain refuge was pleasant enough, with fantastic warm rugs to sleep under.

    Head torches essential as 4:00 start the next day for night time trekking up to the summit. This was very hard work up scree slopes at altitude. Not for the feint hearted! The view at sunrise was fantastic, but bring all the layers you can possibly carry! Trust me they were needed. The trek down to the refuge was tough going, with much care needed in order to not slip over on the scree.

    The rest of the day was very pleasant, downhill back down to the start.

    Overall one of the best treks I’ve ever done, but definitely one of the hardest. I would reccomend slightly longer than 2 days in order to acclimatise to the altitude a little more.

    Ahmed, Hassan, and Jamal were all fantastic to work with. I would 100% trust them to look after me in a future trek
