Frequently Asked Questions

Katerina M – Sept 2021:

Our guide Mhoamed and driver Reda were great, really hospitable and enthusiastic about their land and culture. The tagine meal was fantastic, and the view of the Atlas Mountains was breath-taking. It was nice to get out of the city. The hike in Ourika Valley was brief, but it was plenty in the heat to stretch your legs.

Joris K – Oct 2019:

Discovering local markets, having tea with Berbers, enjoying traditional Moroccan food on a patio, hiking to the cascades, and receiving excellent direction and insights from our tour guide ( Hassan ) make this day trip to Ourika Valley a perfect escape from hectic Marrakech. Strongly recommend it!

Liosa S – Nov 2019:

Our driver Mohamed met us on time at our and drove us to Ourika Valley, On the way, he told us about the day plan as well as some Moroccan history. He was incredibly polite and eager to personalize our tour to our special interests. We went to a Berber house and enjoyed mint tea, as well as an Argan oil cooperative run by women. We hiked to Sitti Fatma's waterfall and ate lunch beside the river. Mohamed drove us off the main road on the way back so we could have a better look of the valley. Mohamed was an excellent guide who taught us a lot about Morocco.
