The tour provided by Khalid at the Berber museum was the highlight of our stay in Marrakech. Go to the photography museum and sign up for the Ourika Valley tour. For 240 DH per person (about $30), the museum will arrange for a shared "grand taxi" to the Ourika Valley, where you will be met by Khalid, who will take you through his home village, visiting a pottery shop, meeting children, vieiwing the museum and eating lunch at his family home. Khalid will customize the tour for each group, visiting neighboring villages, the orchards and farms in the valley, a walk to the river, and even a stop for a camel ride. The guide is very engaging and will let you know what it is like to live as a Berber. Thought riding in the shared taxi is a bit daunting, it is part of the experience, and the photography museum makes the arrangements simple, negotiating for the ride with the driver. Plan on a whole day, from about 9 to 5 for the whole trip. It's worth it.
