After looking at a few day excursions, we opted to go for a day trip to see the waterfalls in Ourika. We booked the trip through our hotel and piad 250dirhams each. We later found out this only includes the driver and visits to various pottery, herb and spice stores along the way. There is an additional cost for the guide which you will need and can be negotiated once you reach the village to start the trek. If you can ask for Mohammed, he was an amazing guide, we felt really safe and he never made us obligated to buy anything along the way. The guides charge per person for the trek, even if they take a whole group of you, but I definitely advise to get a guide to show you the best views and negotiate at the beginning to see all 5 waterfalls, its only 5 minutes extra to your trek and the extra four waterfalls you see are actually cascades of the same waterfall. However the views you see are amazing and highly recommended. Take proper walking boots or strong trainers, the trek is more of a climb across rocks and rivers to get to the waterfall. Pack light, and keep both hands free. This was the best part of our trip to Marrakech, so definitely make time to see it. We paid our guide 40 dirhams each for the trek. Ask for Mohammed and prepare to see some beautiful views of Morocco.
