We booked a day trip to the High Atlas and Ourika Valley. Marcie in the office was super efficient even though it was a last minute booking. She always answered my questions without making me feel silly for asking.
Our driver/guide - Mr Hussein - was perfect and gave us a feel for the real Morocco. He took us to a weekly local market where we saw camels' head in the butcher section to goat/sheep auction to "Berber 4x4 park" aka donkey parking. Mr Hussein's driving was excellent throughout. He was courteous to other drivers on the road and even though some of the roads were very pot-holey we had a very smooth ride the entire day. We visited a Berber village which as an interesting experience.
Another super guide was Mohammed who took us on our short hike to see the Sethi Fetma waterfall. He was such a funny guide and we had a great time. It was a shame that we didn't carry onto the higher falls but we felt that the climb would be too difficult for me and Mohammed didn't want me to return by myself and he & my husband carry on. He was right of course as he was responsible for our safety.
The icing on the cake for this trip was that at no point did Mr Hussein nor Mohammed take us to the "obligatory tourist trap shops/stalls" - the one thing that every tourist dread. Well done to Splash!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Mr Hussein and Mohammed and would definitely recommend their services and that of Splash.
