It's quite a long way out of Marrakesh to visit these underwhelming waterfalls. We took a Taxi and the driver imade several unscheduled stops at shops/ potteries and a berber house along the way.
On arrival we were surrounded by local guides, we took one, but since the path to the waterfalls is pretty straightforward and laden with tourists, this probably isn't neccesary if you are reasonable agile and can manage uneven ground on your own. The guide wanted to charge an exorbitant fee for his minimal services, so as with anything in Morocco, agree a fee before setting off.
There is a small cafe at the bottom, the food was very average and the drinks a bit overpriced.
Overall, nice to leave the hustle and bustle of the city and there are some nice views, but there are better ways to spend your days if you have a limited time in Marrakesh.
