What people are saying about Marrakech
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.
The Waterfall was gorgeous. I recommend you book a tour to see it. We were frustrated with our guide's inability to keep our group together and efficiently show us & tell us about the sights. Upon arrival we wasted time waiting for another group to join us, then we wasted time standing inside a hot Berber house waiting for the guide to Finally speak to us, then when we arrived at the waterfalls we were given less than 30 minutes to enjoy the falls. He told us to start walking up the hill where we were expected to "sit" at a restaurant for approximately 45 mins to 1 hour. Our guide never gave us a specific meeting point or time during the entire day. We just followed him like little ducklings. Had the guide given us 2 hours at the waterfall and a meeting point for departure to the bus, we could have spent our time at the Waterfall at our leisure instead of worrying that our Guide was going to leave us at any point in time.
This tour did not disappoint! We were given the meet up point the day before and picked up bang on time. The bus had great air con and the journey was really comfortable. There was a break in the middle to go to the toilet as well. The tour itself was amazing. Our guide was so funny and had a lot of knowledge about the area and the waterfalls. There was an opportunity to swim in the water and we also got a boat ride into the waterfall itself too which was amazing. Lunch was not provided but was a very reasonable price. Overall the tour was a fantastic experience and i would highly recommend it. The only thing to be wary of is that it involves a lot of walking so bring sensible shoes/be aware if you’re not particularly fit or mobile.
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.
This excursion was lovely. Our driver Abdul was very friendly. We visited an Argan oil production site and a local market with him and that was great to see. The camel ride of 30 minutes was a bit too long though in our opinion. 10 minutes would have been enough. The hike was really nice, but beware that your condition must be okay to do it: Sometimes it were steep climbs and it was a 2 hour walk in total. The lunch in the local village was amazing with a wonderful view on the Atlas mountains. Would definitely recommend.
