Massively enjoyable day. The tour company called the day before to confirm pick-up time, before we even tried to find the number to call them, Tour driver Mustafa arrived on time, was as excited as us about the day trip. He was flexible, informative, had a great sense of humour and really made an effort to make personal touches, The lunch in Berber village was a highlight, probably the best food our whole holiday. The valleys were jaw-droppingly beautiful and the trek up Ourika valley good fun. The guide that accompanied on the trek was lovely - the company use the same guide for their tours. We did have to spend extra on the day for lunch and tour guide so the day worked out quite expensive but was worth it.

Excellent trip, as advertised, through varied and stunning countryside, not too rushed as only ourselves (three people) and one other couple on the tour. Guide was informative and helpful. If time allows would seriously recommend at least one trip out of "hectic" Marrakech to see a different side to Morocco. The Ourika valley was particularly spectacular. The included stop at an Argan Oil manufacturing village was surprisingly informative and enjoyable. Seeing Tom Cruise film part of the new Mission Impossible movie was certainly an unexpected / unplanned addition to the tour !!.

It was an excellent day trip, definitely worth doing whilst in Marrakech. We travelled with a 3 year old and were pleasantly surprised as Shakid, our driver and guide, had arranged a car seat which wasn't done of any other tours. There was another couple who travelled with us in the SUV.
We had a trek to the waterfalls in Ourika valley and our guide there, Omar, was very helpful. He helped us with our son and even carried him on his shoulders. It is around a 30 minute trek and not for people with arthritis or mobility problems.
There was an option to do the camel ride but we skipped it as our son was asleep.
The highlight of the trip was the lunch in the berber house. It was an idyllic location with the view of the valleys. We felt as if we were having lunch in the Grand Canyon. We then drove past the Takerkoust Lake and Kik Plateau with a photo stop with the lake in the background.
I would definitely recommend doing this trip.

This was a brilliant trip out of Marrakech and into the beautiful Atlas mountains. It was great to have a break from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and each valley we visited felt very different. The walk up to the waterfall at Ourika Valley was definitely worth the climb and the views from the top are great. The highlight was the delicious lunch in a Berber village. It was lovely to be away from other tourists and the view was spectacular. I would highly recommend this tour.

A good opportunity to get out of the main city of Marrakech and see some of the dessert and the Atlas mountains. Sadly the tour seemed to focus more on getting you to spend money with the local artisans than seeing the sites of the Ourika Valley, however seeing how Argan oil is made was interesting.
