“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Managed this in flip flops so it is very much achievable and definitely a must-do. The kids were reluctant to begin with but 10 mins in they were hooked and almost leading the way. The waterfall half way up the mountain was the icing on the cake...absolutely amazing.

“Gorgeous, unique!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went on a two-day trip to Zagora riding in a mini-bus through Atlas Mountains. Looong trip from Marrakesh, 7-8 hours in a mini-bus each way. Beautiful mountains though. Unique, different. Worth the long ride.

“Imlil and Ourika Valley with falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We had 2 day tours to both Imlil on one day which included the Argon Oil Women's Co-op. We were picked up from our Riad and went to an old village and then through Imlil via the Argon oil co-op up to the head of the valley to take pictures. We then went to Richard Bransons Khasbah Tamadot for lunch. The driver then came back for us and took us to see a huge lake. We then went back to th Riad.
It was interesting and informative and the driver was very pleasant. On the second day tour we went to a Berber Market which was amazing and entertaining then on to a Berber house to see how they lived and have tea. We then went to the waterfalls in the Ourika Valley. We only went up to the first main fall with a guide but it was not too taxing .However it was very crowded and the litter by the falls spoilt the look somewhat. We had time to have lunch if we wished before being driven back to the Riad.
The driver, Aziz, was knowledgeable and amusing and made the whole experience very interesting and trouble free.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity we were taken in a 4 X 4 land rover up in the mountains with a great guide called Ahmed. We took regular breaks to get such stunning photos of the views. We got to go into a house and have tea with a family. The children do come up to you for money but you must not give them money. We did not know that its a good idea to bring pens for the children or sweets. so I would recommend you do that. You have lunch in a café which is all free except for the drinks. Would devountly do this again.
