What people are saying about Atlas Mountains

we were picked up and transfered to ouzoud by driver Said. He was very knowledgable and funny. We had a great time and met also other travelers. We stopped once for going to the falls and back. The waterfalls are quite touristy and the park is not really immense but It's quite a refreshment away from the heat of Marrakech. The athmosphere is vibrant and refreshing. we had a meal for 100 dirham with entry, salad, tajine and fruit. mint tea and 0.5l water included. after that we went to watch and feed monkeys.

The trip was very long, around 3h/30 by road. The bus was really not comfortable, leather seat with a very hot season. As soon as I got on the bus, 5min later I was sweating, it was horrible, we didn't even feel the air conditioning. At one point I was really not well, I wanted to vomit. But fortunately what awaited us was magnificently beautiful. Our guide was also really good and the waterfall really beautiful, apart from the water which was not clear but it is definitely worth going.

We had a really great experience. Our guide was great, the minibus was comfortable, and I feel like I learned something about the people there as well as saw beautiful waterfalls. I enjoyed the hike as well. Our guide stopped to give people breaks at the best times and kept us moving, but didn't rush us either. I enjoyed the food at the cafe they took us to. There were only a couple of options, but it was satisfactory, and we also got fruit and the required Moroccan mint tea.

The guide was very informative and the waterfalls are beautiful! Definitely needed trainers and you get wet from the waterfall, but don’t need to change clothes. Would 100% recommend!

At the top, Mouloud our guide was great! It was a great time and the waterfall is very beautiful
