Ourika Valley Full-Day Trip from Marrakech was wonderful. It was a perfect break from bustling Marrakech. My Riad was in souk area so I was asked to meet the driver in front of Cafe de la France. Our Guide Hassan is a treasure and he has lots of experience. A visit to herboristerie (no necessity to buy anything), climbing, a lunch by the river and visit to authentic berber home were all interesting. Our restaurant had vegetarian options. Take along your trekking shoes.
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.
Nice trip, our driver Maxim was a perfekt guide and gave us always a helping hand. The visit of the argan oil cooperation was interesting and relaxed being not pushed to shop (of course they guide you to the showroom, if you want to). Maxim organized us a guide named Khalid, a very kind and friendly (french and english speaking) local, who guided us perfectly the whole way through. The way up to the falls is full stacked with souvenir stand and the interesting part starts at the top and the way down, where you can get an image how beautiful the nature was, before starting to build the tourist infrastructure. Thank you very much Maxim and thank you very much Khalid
our pick up time was on the spot.the guide was good.it was great experience. i will definitely use this service again
the guide 75 was very friendly and gave us a lot of interest information about Ourika and Atlas, thanks
