Total tourist trap. Not a gentle stroll up a mountain, not at all, this is boulder climbing, not for your sunday slippers. The views are pretty and worth the climb. But everything else here is garnered to taking your money, and the berber house well im not having it that they live there but rather a hut they show as... More

The trip to Ourika valley is really lovely especially in Spring , everything is green and sparkling . The drive to Setta Fatima waterfalls is spectacular , can see Mount Atlas peaked with snow in the distance . The scenery is untouched and traditional Berber villages and houses in the hills. I would caution people to be very mindful of... More

We took our 4 year old and 6 year old. You can do this on your own but a guide would be highly recommended. We had the most wonderful experience with Abdul Kamir. This hike is not for the faint of heart. We managed to make it to waterfall #2. There are 7. 7 is supposed to be magnificent. We... More

This was my first visit here and it was amazing. I liked the drive there as well and got some lovely souvenirs on the way. The village people are friendly and it was an eye opener to see how they live there. A lovely experience to see how the argan oil is made

We booked this trip when in Marrakech , the lad who sold it said it was their most popular and involved a pleasant walk to the waterfall. There were 18 of us on the mini bus of various nationalities. We were first taken to see Argon oil being made. We were treated to a rather bizarre trip around a rather... More

A Beautiful place to visit. All i would like to say is make sure you wear comfortable footwear. There is a lot of walking and climbing to do to get to the waterfall but the guides are very helpful and friendly. The weather is cooler than the city. After the walk we enjoyed a lovely meal in the beautiful sceneries... More

Once you reach the valley you have a choice to go to see the 3 fountains with a guide, i declined this offer as i had children. Others who went said you need good hiking boots or... More
