This is definitely worth a visit if you're on a road trip in Morocco. The scenery is breathtaking and you really get a closer look at the way people live in the villages. It's amazing that no matter how hot and dry it can get...More

The tour guide was unenthusiastic... the berber house and argan oil plantation felt more like tourist traps then interesting stops. Once you get to the waterfall there are loads of leering men perving on women in their bathing suits. Don't bother.

Very good scenery and the restaurants on the river side are fascinating some of the tables and chairs in the shallows. Locals swimming. Walking however is hard work if you are of more a mature age.

A good day outside of Marrakech - get away from it all venue (apart from the tourists, of course!). Go early when not so busy with people or vehicles. Must wear sensible shoes - not Sunday's best! Really think about going here without the baby...More
