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.
