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.
Picked up on time at the right meeting point.
Friendly driver and guide.
If the weather was wormer I would give 5 stars. Still enjoyed it.
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.
