Full description
Discover the prettiest Berber valley, the Ourika Valley, situated 60 km south of Marrakech. During your tour, witness Berber villages and hamlets perched on mountain slopes of the High Atlas Mountains. Enjoy plenty of time to stop to take photos of the little terraces of various crops and other wonderful and exotic sceneries. Take the time to visit a local Berber house and some stores of pottery and varied samples of minerals and crystals before you return to Marrakech. Get picked up from your hotel in Marrakech and drive into the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains which rise up from the plains. Then, enter a lush, agricultural valley with a thriving traditional culture. Make your first stop of the day at a place where local Berber women extract precious argan oil from the kernels of the argan tree. Next, head to the village of Setti Fatma - the starting point for a 1.5-hour hike to the Siti Fatma Waterfalls. Follow a steep trail across a series of narrow bridges to 7 picturesque cascades. While at the waterfalls, and throughout the tour, take advantage of your day with a local trekking guide to set your own pace, with plenty of time to take breaks.

Great value trip. Pick up on time. Argon oil tour interesting but very expensive to buy the products. Walk to waterfall was good and guide very helpful. Lunch was not included and although food at the restaurant we were taken to was a good price, the food was not great. Trip to local house was interesting. Lots of opportunities to stop and take pictures. Would recommend for day out for the price.

Some parts of this trip were excellent , other parts not so good. Pick up was a bit chaotic - spent an hour waiting around. Allocated driver was scary . Driving whilst on mobile phone . Stops were all interesting and the hike to the waterfall was excellent. Lunch was not brilliant but it was lovely to eat by the river. Overall , the trip was good value and I would recommend it.

Very late pick up from hotel. I had to make contact to see where transportation was. Chaotic start to the day, got on another bus. Stopped at camels, some people went on a ride but most didn’t want to. On to village, stopped at argon oil shop then on to next village and my friend and I got taken off for our guided trip. Which was wonderful. Met up with group again then to restaurant which we didn’t want. On to Berber house. We booked the short 6 hour trip but were obviously bundled in with the other trip although this was never made clear. Total lack of communication the whole day.
