Lovely day trip into the mountains!

We had a lovely experience on this day trip. Pick up was prompt and both our driver and guide were friendly and welcoming throughout. The highlight was definitely the hike up to see the waterfalls. Although a little strenuous at times, it was well worth it. We also quite enjoyed the visit to the argan oil collective.

A Great Day out

We really enjoyed this day trip to the mountains. The collection was prompt and all the timings were accurate. Our first stop was at an Argon oil Cooperative, which was actually much more interesting than we had expected. We arrived at the start of the climb to the waterfall and followed Hassan our guide. The climb was fairly steep, and we were older than the rest of the group by decades, but Hassan was always there to give us a helping hand, literally, and we made it up to the waterfall, and the view was well worth the climb. We came down a different route to the river where we were taken to a restaurant by the river. Some of the tables and chairs were actually in the water so you could eat with your feet in the river. The waiters wore wellies! After lunch we were taken to a typical Berber house. We arrived back in Marrakech and were dropped near our Riad. We had a really interesting day, thanks really to Hassan.

Picked up promptly from the old town to be dropped off to meet the rest of the group. Small group of 8 of us. Trip the the argon factory was nice and informative and the chance to buy there. Then onto the waterfalls and had a separate guide who was very good and helpful for making sure we stayed safe at all times and together. Plenty of photo ops and stops on way. The journey down is easier then up. Then onto lunch. You wil;l be asked to tip your guide and we did as ours was helpful and very good. They will show you to a restaurant where you can have one cours for 90 DH or three course for 120. If you refuse there are other places further down where you can bartar for a one course for 60 DH. After lunch on to a berber house which we hadn't wanted to go to. They again will ask for money but we didn't as we had wanted to book a trip that didn't go to the Berber house and we didn't find it particularly informative. Then about a hour and half drive back. Total day was 9am-5.30pm when we were dropped off near our Riad. This trip is really good value for money and we saw a lot and did a lot for it. Completly up to you if you want to buy anything or take own lunch,etc but well worth what you pay for it.

Hasan was a great guide, very knowledgeable. We were in a small group and stopped at an Argan Oil co-operative on the way - no pressure to buy. Ourika Valley and the mountain hike was great - need to be in good physical shape for some parts. Amazing views. Lunch was a set price menu - more expensive than you’d usually pay - 120 dirhams each. Stopped briefly at a Berber house on the way back. Great day out and nice to be away from the busyness of Marrakech for a while.

Great tour! We stopped for an optional panoramic camel photo, stopped for tea and bread at a Berber house, and again at an argan oil cooperative. The prices at the cooperative were more expensive than in Marrakech but we preferred to buy here and support local villages. The hike was really great, you do have to go over rocks and water so do bring walking boots or comfortable trainers saw some people trying to do this in flip-flops!!!!. Keep in mind you are at a higher altitude so it is colder than Marrakech. Our guide in the mountains was great and spoke English very well, and we tipped him a small amount. Before heading back we stopped at a restaurant where there is a menu for 120 dirhams, more expensive than in Marrakech, however keep in mind that you can order separate items without getting the full menu which means you can pay around 60-90 per person, and the food was very good.

Our Ourika Valley experience was great! Our pick-up was nice and easy and our driver very funny and friendly! You get to walk through the mountain, you have quite a few stops for pictures, you will see a waterfall, be able to shop, etc. It has a little bit of everything to make a perfect day trip! Beautiful scenery.

The trip was great as well as our guide. With shared tours the thing to worry about the most are the people you share the tour with. One couple were expert hikers and came with walking poles and hiking gear. They kept rushing the slower solo lady n the tour and my wife, who were scared of some of the climbs we had to do. They wanted to venture way past the falls on n optional tour which has a lot of climbing and walking on some rugged terrain. So be prepared for a lot of walking and wear good shoes as well flip-flops are not recommended in my opinion. There are many beautiful pictures to take especially by the stream as well as by the waterfalls. I did not get to see as much as I wanted because the expert hikers took the optional tour I went with them and we agreed to meet with our driver at the bottom where we started where my wife and the solo lady were. We took the optional tour which was not as grand as the waterfalls really. However, our guide on this tour was mainly speaking in Italian and when he finished his tour he told the experts something and they told me we had to walk to the car and meet our guide. Got to the car and he was not there. So they wanted to simply go to a restaurant to eat because they were hungry and did not want to wait. I said I would stay by the van to make sure I don't miss the others and have them walking all over looking for us. Maybe 30 minutes later the guide and others do show up by the car and they were waiting for us where they said they would. I tell this story because I have had issues much like this on a lot of shared tours other grown adult couples don't meet when and where agreed and it causes others to lose tour time. So make sure it's agreed where to meet and what time and a CLOSE backup place to go to possible eat/wait if not there. Its no way to make things 100, but it helps save time.....I have had to wait an hour on many trips because others did not come back on time and then the tour guide has to go look for them while others lose time doing nothing,
