What people are saying about Marrakech

Great little walk around the mountains and insight into local culture!

Good value trip to see some of the countryside outside Marrakech. The stops on the way were good for photos of the views and the little oil production talk was interesting. Didn't feel pushed into buying anything, although did get a souvenir anyway. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, we spoke in both French and English. I don't think we would have been able to learn as much if speaking in just English, but could have discussed most things without a problem. Again there were items for purchase on our walk to see the falls and around the villages, but nothing pushy. The lunch was great, catering for a vegetarian, and our walk back and drive home were fine. Not particularly strenuous for anyone in a somewhat fit shape. Good shoes would help, but not necessary, mine had poor grip, but I managed fine. Very little waiting around compared to what we expected from reviews of group tours. Only criticism is aircon wasn't turned on in the car, but we didn't ask. Overall a good excursion.

A great experience and must do if in Morocco.

The tour will take you to the heart of the Amazing people in Morocco. You get to see people extracting the argan oil, pottery and various house activities. When you reach the village you can have your lunch on the river with your feet in the water. Very beautiful sceneries. Then you go up the mountains to see the waterfalls. It is challenging and you need very good walking shoes and stick to the guides advice. Some parts of the track may look dangerous if not familiar with similar tracks. Once you reach the top of the mountain, the views are breathtaking. The lunch is not included in the price but the overall cost very reasonable. You have also to tip the guides. Overall we enjoyed the experience.

A lovely place and worth the long drive.

Getting collected from your Riad makes the difference. Once on the minibus you head off to Essaouira, it’s a long drive but you get a couple of stops on the way. You get dropped off by the fishing port and the guide (included in the price) takes you on a 90 min walking tour, then it is free time until you head back to Marrakesh. There are many places to eat around the main square and port, fresh fish is the best option. You get dropped off back at your Riad/hotel at the end of the day. Definitely worth visiting.

Interesting to see how the locals used the area to celebrate Eid.

The tour was very interesting and the sights were visually spectacular. The guide who actually took us on the walk through the mountains was very helpful and considerate. The guide who actually drove the minibus was also polite and helpful but it was not professional to be asked to provide feedback of him or the trip over the phone whilst he was present in the van (I’m assuming we were feeding back to his employer in Morocco).

Good value for money but not much time to explore

Good value for money transport wise. The tour party was very big and the tour guide had to translate in both English and french which made everything a bit cumbersome. The tour itself was interesting but ate up a lot of the free time we had in the town- this didn’t leave a lot of time for exploring. If I could go again I would likely skip the tour and explore the town instead.
