Private day trip to Ouzoud falls

Francesca R – Sep 2021:

Our driver arrived on time and in a clean and comfy vehicle to pick us up from our hotel in Marrakech. We were securely transported to Ouzoud Falls, where we met our tour guide. He was a young, energetic man who pointed out birds, frogs, turtles, and, of course, endangered Barbary Macaques when we informed him we were interested in wildlife.

Hiu T – Dec 2020:

From beginning to end, I thoroughly enjoyed the journey. Despite the fact that the trip to the falls takes around 3 hours, the pickup and drop off were on time, and the transportation was pleasant and fun. On arrival, we were greeted by an English-speaking guide (Hassan), who was fantastic. He took us on a leisurely trip around the waterfall area, providing us with information that was both instructive and entertaining. The cascade itself is breath-taking, and there are several photo possibilities. Lunch was traditional (tajine, fresh local fruit) and wonderful beside the waterfall. This day excursion to Ouzoud falls is ideal if you want to learn about Morocco's natural beauty while escaping the noise and bustle of Marrakech.

Excellent guide and driver for our private day trip to the falls

Jennifer F – Sep 2019:

Excellent full-day excursion - the ride took around 3 hours, including a coffee break. Bring your swim trunks, and instead of flip flops, wear some trainers. Beautiful waterfalls in an isolated location with a steep descent to the foot of the falls where you may swim and possibly take a short boat ride. Lunch is available for an extra fee.
