Absolutely loved it! Fascinating to see the villages and mountain people. Felt like I and #39;d gone back in time hundreds of years. The people were friendly as well.
Our guide, Mustafa, was interesting, entertaining and really accommodating. He catered for our needs and interests. Really recommend it!!
Must see! Awesome tour, great views and wonderful lunch spot! So delicious.
This tour was a highlight of my whole 4 weeks in Spain and Morocco. Our guide spoke excellent English, and as he came from a Berber village himself, really gave us an unequaled insight into Berber culture and village life. The first valley was very pleasant, and the waterfall quite pleasant, but the climb up isn't easy. I stopped before the top as I am not a good climber. It was the trip over the mountains and into the second valley that was the real highpoint of the day, in particular lunch at a house in a Berber village. Virtually everything we ate was grown and prepared on the premises including the cous cous made out of locally grown wheat and hand prepared. I particularly enjoyed the small group experience. The High Atlas was spectacular and this tour is highly recommended. Note that the optional extra visit mentioned in the name of this tour was never actually offered.
This tour was amazing! We were picked up and dropped off to our hotel on time. Our tour guide Shakib was friendly, knowledgeable and made the trip really enjoyable. We got to see a lot in one day and the climb up Ourika valley was quite the challenge for those who are unfit or have short legs at least but well worth the climb. The views were amazing and lunch with a local Berber family was great. Lunch cost extra which was more than we normally pay but I was happy to pay extra knowing that it is supporting local people plus with the exchange rate actually it was a average priced decent lunch. Hospitality was great. Overall, a fantastic tour and well worth it!
Excellent. Our guide Abdul was so knowledgeable and friendly.
Lunch was amazing and in a stunning location.
We just loved the day.
Wear suitable footwear as the walk to the waterfall was steep and slippery. I suggest trainers or something with grip.
Excelent tour! Abdul our main tour guy was really great, a really nice guy and very knowledgeable. The valleys were stunning, we get a great taste of the old berber villages scenery and lifestyle. The Ourika waterfalls walk was quite an experience and that lunch meal was amazing
Our tour with Mostafa was first rate in all respects varied landscapes, coupled with excellent commentary and good humour made this the perfect day out. Informative and entertaining high spot the Berber village lunch - delicious. Excellent value.
We really enjoyed this trip. Ouricha valley and waterfalls are a bit touristy but nice to see. The other two valleys and Kik plateau are more quiet and authentic. The Atlas mountains are beautiful, amazingly green and the Berber people are very friendly. We enjoyed the lunch at at the house of a Berber family. Our guide Mostafa was very friendly and told us a lot about the Berber way of live. We can recommend it to anybody who wants to see something else than Marrakech. We did it with two children 9 and 11 who also enjoyed it and we didn't have any stomach problems after the lunch.
This was the highlight of my trip to Marrakesh. The valleys are very pretty and all very different from each other. It was also nice to experience the piece and quiet after the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh.
Also the lunch really was fantastic is was the best / most authentic food I had on my trip and there was so much of it it was so good I couldn't stop eating : . The view from the house is also breathtaking.
I highlight recommend this tour.
Amazing, perfect, and professional. My day in the Atlas Mountains was the highlight of my trip to Morocco. Prior to my day trip of the three valleys i was emailed by Sara to confirm my pick-up time and location, which I really appreciated. Our guide, Chakib, arrived right on time and took us to the three valleys where he provided us with plenty of facts and figures about each of the valleys we'd be visiting. Chakib was so kind to everyone, and always made sure we were comfortable and accommodated everyone on the tour really well he's also a great photographer, too!.
What I appreciated most was the thought that went into the design of our itinerary. We started the day a bit early, and it was worth it. By the time we had finished our hike to the waterfall we saw the hoards of tourists piling in to experience the beauty of the region, but because we had gone earlier in the day everything was quiet and just absolutely perfect, giving us what felt like a truly unique and personalised experience. Chakib informed us that other tour companies start later in the day, which means one's experience isn't as great.
The lunch with the Berber family was absolutely delicious, and the views as we ate were spectacular! I was hoping for more interaction with the family, who did their own thing while we ate maybe there was a language barrier?. We would've liked more of an in-depth explanation of how the tajine was prepared and more about their culture. Chakib did a good job of talking to us about their lifestyle, so that was good!
Overall, the Three Valleys Tour was perfect, and I wish I had booked more excursions! And I encourage everyone going to Morocco to book this tour for an escape from the hustle and bustle or Marrakech.
Perfect tour with 4 p. in good SUV. Very friendly, interested and good english speaking guide, sights are great. We recommend this tour !!

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.
