Full description
Ourika Valley, at the foot hills of the High Atlas Mountains is only a 45 minutes south east of Marrakech. The valley offers a great escape from the heat of Marrakech for the locals during summer months. This group day trip to Ourika Valley from MArrakech is ideal for nature lovers and light trek into one of the small size waterfalls, or just relax and have a snack at one of the local cafés unted the shade of the walnut tress next to the stream. After a 30 minutes drive via the fertile Haouz Planes, you will reach Tnin Ouika center, where you will stop for a visit of the open air Berber weekly market. It is operated every day, but Mondays are much busier and lively. From here you will continue up to Setti Fatma. On the way, stop at a Berber house where you can share a cup of mint tea with the locals before you continue to Stti Fatma Berber village. Upon arrival, enjoy a guided light trek into the the water falls above the village (local guides available for hire). Return back to the village where you can have lunch (at leisure) at one of the local cfés next to the stream.

This was a great day trip. Our driver was Charaf, he was professional, fun and managed our group well in both English (3) and Spanish (5) languages. The minibus was clean, comfy, he played good music and had wifi. Our guide in the valley was Jamal, the man is phenomenal, he very attentive and would dash up back and forth to help every single person up and across. Highly recommend this tour and guides are amazing helpful people. Tip everything you can.

Our guide was really amazing. The communication was good, we were collected from our hotel at the time stated. The driver was very nice and helpful and the car was lovely and clean. Journey was comfortable. I highly recommend this day trip as Ourika valley is close to Marrakesh and absolutely beautiful.

Successful day trip to the waterfalls in the Ourika valley. Arrival with approx. 1.5 hours very pleasant km small bus. Driver is very silent. Only the guide, which is not included in the price, is very good at 100dh, but then surprisingly expensive. That the whole thing ends in lunch in a fixed price menu shop is authentic, but still a bit annoying.
