The trip was amazing. The views from the way were so different and natural. The local people were really welcoming and nice. Mr Said, the driver, was amazingly helpful. He gave us options for restauratnts and things to see in Marrakech. He also stopped whenever we wanted and helped in anyhting needed. We were overwhelmed by how kind and genuine he was. Highly recommended tour in a very reasonable price.
Beautiful tour. Our driver and tour guide were amazing. Wear hiking shoes and get ready to hike an hour up the mountains. Also there’s about 20-30 min of rock climbing involved to get to the waterfall. Otherwise beautiful trip, delicious food, and wonderful people we met along the way. Love Morocco.
The trip was a bit disorganized - up until we reached the berber village we had no idea of the itinerary or schedule for the day. there were no guides on the drive - the driver was friendly though. When we recahed the village we went off with a wrong guide at first and then the guide for our group was found. We were supposed to return by 5 pm but got back only at 6:15 pm. Guides were friendly through out and the lunch was good.
Trip was a little disappointing really. The waterfall was good to look at but there was so much rubbish both in the water and around it that spoiled it. The restaurant we ate at was overlooking the waterfall and that was nice. The food was really good also. The walk to the waterfall was not taxing for us but some people in our party found it hard going. It was good to get out of Marrakech and breathe some cleaner air.
We both enjoyed the trip including the visit to the Berber house which was really interesting to witness their way of life. The Argan Oil visit wasn't that interesting and really a sales stop. The part of the trip that needs sorting out was the trek to the waterfall which was Not explained correctly in Viator's marketing information. Basically, it was a very steep hill/mountain climb which should have been described as such to prepare clients for. There was a mixture of rickety bridges and rugged rocks to climb over and the correct climbing clothing and footwear was required. we eventually reached the waterfall which was a real disappointment as I was expecting something more spectacular then we had to climb up a vertical slippery ladder more rugged uphill terrain until we reached the summit. there were some great views from here and the opportunity to take some photos. Then we descended down the other side of the hill which wasn't quite as difficult as the ascent. My partner slipped and nearly fell down into the side of the steep hill. We eventually reached the bottom and breathed a sigh of relief. The guide Mohammed was brilliant and without his help neither of us would have made it back to base. Basically, to attempt this climb you need to be pretty fit, wear the right clothing and either rock climbing boots or cross trainers with good grips. I also know of someone else who managed to fall doing this climb. Health and Safety would have a field day with this expedition.
On a brighter note, the 3 coarse lunch after the climb was excellent especially the chicken tagine. Our driver Saed was also extremely helpful throughout the day.
There was no tour guide, just a driver, so we learned literally nothing about what we were seeing. He didn't talk to us the entire drive there or back. This was supposed to be an educational experience not just sight seeing. It is a short day, it ended at 2pm and they made us sit at a really not nice lunch spot when there were so many around it that were much nicer and cheaper. It felt like a rip-off because 34 is a lot of money to them and I felt like this was the only way we could do this because we didn't want to hire a taxi but the value was about 10. The hike is a toursity joke with tons of shops along the way and very crowded that takes a long time but is actually just a simple walk to a mediocre waterfall. Not impressed, do not go on this tour.
This trip is really good value and you get a well organised day out. We visited a Berber house, had a camel ride and trekked to a waterfall followed by a lovely lunch by a river. We were met by the organiser near our hotel and introduced to our driver. At each activity we were well looked after.
