For three women and one teenage girl, this tour was our favorite day on our Marrakech visit. It started a little shakily because I hadn't thoroughly read the voucher where I was supposed to set the pick up time and location 24 hours in advance but I was able to call the company and set things up the night before. My bad for not reading the small print but it also seems like Viator could make those terms more prominent and/or send a reminder email. Anyhoo, the person I spoke to on the phone couldn't have been nicer and we set up a pick up location.
Although they were a little late, they called to let me know and were super courteous. Abdul was our driver and guide. Not only was he excellent at both, he really impressed me as he is passionate about the community of people who live in the Atlas Mountains. He is from the Atlas Mountains and has family that lives there now.
Everyone enjoyed the hike to the waterfalls including me although I didn't go quite to the end- there was a place where I would have to jump over rushing water between two boulders and I'm a terrible jumper, so I opted not to go but the view was great even from there. You definitely need good footwear and not mind climbing some rocks. The Argan Oil collective was very interesting and the views became more spectacular as we climbed. We had lunch at a Berber family house on a terrace with a breathtaking view. The food was delicious and plentiful, well worth the extra cost. Everyone agreed that lunch was fantastic. After lunch we continued to climb and saw another valley, then started down. During the drive, Abdul gave us a window into life in these mountains and that was probably my favorite thing. If you get a chance to take this tour, do it!
Collected at 8.30 from our hotel by 4x4, the driver introduced us to 3 others - Boris from Germany,
Giselle and son Luca from Brazil in such a warm way we were immediately at ease and made a happy group.
Mustapha was the driver with a lovely personality and sense of humour giving great info as we went into the Atlas Mountains following a river towards Ourika. A stop to experience crossing the river on a very rickety bridge was quite an experience. Arriving at Ourika we met a local guide for our trek onwards and upwards to the waterfall, hard going in places but a rewarding experience.
The tour continued by road with wonderful scenery of snow covered peaks and green foothills, several photo stops were made before stopping at a berber house for lunch in a beautiful setting with nice tagines served on an outside terrace with views to die for.
The tour continued on narrow roads through picturesque settings to a plateau and lake. We seemed to arrive back to the city from a much flatter route which was deceptive in time.
A very good day was had with Mustapha being the perfect host.
We had an amazing day on the 3 valleys tourAbdul was a fantastic guide, really good English, very knowledgable and entertaining. We loved everything about Marrakech but really got a feel for the local life from this tour. The views were stunning, everyone was really friendly, and the food was great as a vegetarian, I was a bit concerned - I didn't want to cause any offence by being the awkward one but it was no problem. A really wonderful day that I would absolutely recommend to anyone that has the opportunity.
Great trip! We had the same guide as one of the other trips. He was great!!! This is a nice way to see more of the area outside Marrakech.
This was a really good tour! Abdul, our guide was great. He spoke English well and was quite knowledgeable. We enjoyed the hike up to the waterfalls. It was a little challenging.. definitely wear tennis shoes. The visit to the Berber village to have lunch was excellent. Khadijah cooked an excellent tajine meal for us which we enjoyed on the terrace of her home. The views were outstanding! The time length of this tour was perfect. This tour gave us a glimpse of Moroccan terrain and scenery that we never expected! We would highly recommend it!
Everything was perfect, Thank you very much Mustafaour guide blind Musti:
Our guide, Mustafa was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for a better day.
I would recommend this tour to absolutely anyone.
I admit I get very travel sick so was quite apprehensive but really wanted to experience as much as I could on holiday, and it was worth it. The guide picked me up at a place easy to get to from the Riad, same for the other people we collected along the way. There were frequent stops and a lot of information about where we were going, passing, and seeing. the scenery is stunning, and plenty of stops for pictures and exploring. If you take the optional trip to the waterfall, wear a sturdy shoe! You will be climbing over boulders and slippery outcrops and it will be worth every second. On the way up and down you pass through some co-ops for the village, and the souvenirs are beautiful, well priced, and hand made in and around the area. Take water with you and use the bathrooms as and when they are mentioned Lunch at the Berber house was one of the best meals I ate whilst in Morocco. Spend that extra 15 euros. The view from the patio where we ate was breathtaking too. The lake was viewed from the surrounding hills, on the return journey to Marrakech and the weather was perfect to take it all in. The driver/guide was lovely very friendly and knowledgeable and helped with translating and questions we all had.
The best tour i have ever done !!! A great tour across the valley and lake a wonderful dinner cooked by berber family and many hidden place to discover ! Our guide give us many information on tour and on Morocco tradition in a very good english he was very friendly was a pleasure in each moment !
Highly recommended. Our guide, Abdul, was amazing and incredibly knowledgeable!
Abdillah was a fantastic guide, so knowledgeable, kind and nothing any trouble to him. It was a full day, covered a lot of miles, scenery very beautiful. Waterfall walk very nice, require sturdy walking shoes and guide who lead us up also very kind and helpful. Highly recommend this tour, a must if you visit Marrakech - it was our highlight.
A fascinating tour with stunning views. Our guide Abdul made us feel welcome from the beginning and was a great guide throughout. The traditional Berber lunch was a definite highlight and a great chance to experience the local food and meet local people. Would highly recommend this trip and Abdul as a guide.
Fabulous day. Walked up to see the first waterfall in the Ourika Valley, stopped to have drinks along the river in those unique chair and couches set up in and beside the river. While other tours would have ended here, we continued on to see authentic Berber villages and eat a wonderful meal in a family home. We saw beautiful mountains and vistas that very few tourists see, and we were fortunate to have great people with us. We laughed and had an amazing time the whole day. Abdoul our driver/guide was fantastic. Heartily recommend this trip!!

A small group tour visiting three green valleys around Marrakech with an excellent guide. Good walking shoes needed as there is a part where you will go to a waterfall. The path is rather steep and sometimes slippery.
There stops at some interesting sites. There is an excellent home-made Lunch at a Moroccon home in a tiny village.
This was the best tour period. We loved everything involved. We especially want to recommend and thank Abdillah Aitbahman who is a wealth of information and personality. Take this tour and you will not regret it.
Great experience! We recommend it to everyone who comes to visit Marrakech.
The tour was a amazing, the views where great, we were only 4 in a van so it was simple and comfortable. The lake was somehow disappointing but it and #39;s ok.
Excellent trip, excellent guide, excellent meal at the Berber village.
This is an excellent day trip which allows you experience a fascinating area with beautiful scenery. The pre-departure arrangements were very well handled. Our guide, Mustaffa, was good humored, arrived at our hotel on time and navigated us comfortably around the Three Valleys. Nothing was too much trouble and he provided a very interesting commentary throughout. The trip is extremely varied and there are numerous highlights scenery/waterfalls/argan oil production/many photographic opportunities etc. It is also an excellent insight into Berber life and the optional lunch at the Berber home was delicious and a unique way to relax during the trip - a highlight. Having read reviews in advance, we took good footwear and comfortable clothing for the hike to the waterfalls and this is a must. The additional guide waiting for us at the waterfalls was friendly and helpful. While this is a full day, it is very rewarding and something that should not to be missed as it adds a whole new dimension to a stay in Marrakesh.
This is a must trip!! the views are so breath taking and getting outside the city to the outskirts is highly recommended. there is a chance to talk to local people and taste the food too. Also buy local goods and affordable prices after huggling. the tour guide was very good because it was a small group of us, more time was spent in places. the meal in the mountains at the imam's house was beautiful and very hospitable. I would really recommend it.
fantastic scenery,informative guide lovely meal with Berber family.
Absolutely fantastic trip... we were picked up directly from the hotel, and explored the mountains. The guide was awesome, he took the time to talk to us about the history of the towns and of his people. Would definitely recommend.
I went on this trip on 21st November and it was the highlight of my stay in Marrakech. The itenerary was perfect as we visited the first valley before all the other tourists groups arrived. Then we headed for the much quieter valleys with even better views. The meal prepared by the Berber family was very nice and we enjoyed it with spectacular views of the valley. Our guide Shakib spoke excellent English unlike another city tour I joined with a guide I struggled to understand sometimes and had a sincere and easygoing attitude. We stopped at a village shop but the young man made sure we did not feel pressured to buy anything if we were not interested. I would like to thank our guide for making the tour such a comfortable and pleasant journey. Worth every penny.
