We hired a car with driver to take us to the valley from Marrakech. Cost 1000 dirhams but very nice comfy SUV and a driver who let us set the pace of what to do. Lovely drive up. Stopped at a Berber village on route which is a big rip off and hugely gimmicky. Once we got to setti fatma, ignored all the guides and wandered around the village ourselves and then by default found ourselves going towards the waterfall, though that wasn't the plan. Not an easy climb up, but very doable. Must have right shoes as it can every slippery. Constant stream of people going up and coming down, so doable without a guide ! We went up to the first waterfall and then came down ravenous as it as way past lunchtime. In the village had lunch at cafe azro ourika almost at the start of the village. Fixed lunch comprising of starter, main course n dessert for 60d !! Lovely table right on the river, great views and ambience ! Huge salad portions in the starter. The couscous was good and the yoghurt at the end was a perfect finish to a lovely day topped by a delightful lunch in an incredibly scenic setting !!! One of the nicest days we had in Morocco and delightful to be away from the madness of the Marrakech medina !!
