We took a half a day walk (4 hours). This walk was an excellent opportunity to see a different aspect from Morroco, not a human being on sight with just goats, donkeys and camels - the beach and sand dunes were incredible and our tour guide, Ottoman, was so professional, knowledgeable and friendly, I could not fault anything on this trip. You also get to visit a local village house. We will treasure this walk for the rest of our lives.

We took part in a nice half-day walk to the waterfalls.

It was a perfect tour. The driver Mohammed Transport was on time and highly-professional, with a very nice van. The tour was great: from a walk through an argan forest, to a magnificent beach, then to the waterfalls. We ended up in a typical berber house, to drink a tea with a local family.

It was a genuine walk, accessible to everyone and very respectful of local environment and population. Our guide (Odgan) was very kind and professional, and the french managers (that you can meet at the restaurant La Decouverte, in Essaouira) are very kind.

I would highly recommend this very short trek (6 km).

we had a morning walking around the argon orchards, visiting a berber home and seeing sights in the fields inland 30mins drive from Essaouira. It was great -- educational, friendly, eye-opening and good value.

We ddi the waterfall walk which took us through the Argon forest and down onto a deserted beach which was wide and beautiful. Then onto the small waterfall a complete contrast to the dunes. We then had tea and refreshment at a local village.
