This is a decent day out of the city. Most riads / hotels will book the day trip for you, which is what we did. You will pay for a car to take you to the falls, where you will meet a guide (seperate fee) who will take you to the first set of waterfalls. There you can either turn around and head back the way you came or continue up higher. This is NOT a easy hike along a paved path. Wear good comfortable shoes. Do not bring more than you can carry.
After the hike we went for lunch (also not included) before heading back to the city.
During the drive out we stopped at a pottery place, and agean oil place, and a spice place. You are not obligied to buy anything, and if you want you can tell the driver not to bother stopping but continue on.
On the way back my wife wanted to ride a camel. The driver when to a specific place where she had a 20 min ride (150dirhams). There are several places alomng the valley road where you can pet or ride the camels.
