Great tour! We stopped for an optional panoramic camel photo, stopped for tea and bread at a Berber house, and again at an argan oil cooperative. The prices at the cooperative were more expensive than in Marrakech but we preferred to buy here and support local villages. The hike was really great, you do have to go over rocks and water so do bring walking boots or comfortable trainers saw some people trying to do this in flip-flops!!!!. Keep in mind you are at a higher altitude so it is colder than Marrakech. Our guide in the mountains was great and spoke English very well, and we tipped him a small amount. Before heading back we stopped at a restaurant where there is a menu for 120 dirhams, more expensive than in Marrakech, however keep in mind that you can order separate items without getting the full menu which means you can pay around 60-90 per person, and the food was very good.
Our Ourika Valley experience was great! Our pick-up was nice and easy and our driver very funny and friendly! You get to walk through the mountain, you have quite a few stops for pictures, you will see a waterfall, be able to shop, etc. It has a little bit of everything to make a perfect day trip! Beautiful scenery.
The trip was great as well as our guide. With shared tours the thing to worry about the most are the people you share the tour with. One couple were expert hikers and came with walking poles and hiking gear. They kept rushing the slower solo lady n the tour and my wife, who were scared of some of the climbs we had to do. They wanted to venture way past the falls on n optional tour which has a lot of climbing and walking on some rugged terrain. So be prepared for a lot of walking and wear good shoes as well flip-flops are not recommended in my opinion. There are many beautiful pictures to take especially by the stream as well as by the waterfalls. I did not get to see as much as I wanted because the expert hikers took the optional tour I went with them and we agreed to meet with our driver at the bottom where we started where my wife and the solo lady were. We took the optional tour which was not as grand as the waterfalls really. However, our guide on this tour was mainly speaking in Italian and when he finished his tour he told the experts something and they told me we had to walk to the car and meet our guide. Got to the car and he was not there. So they wanted to simply go to a restaurant to eat because they were hungry and did not want to wait. I said I would stay by the van to make sure I don't miss the others and have them walking all over looking for us. Maybe 30 minutes later the guide and others do show up by the car and they were waiting for us where they said they would. I tell this story because I have had issues much like this on a lot of shared tours other grown adult couples don't meet when and where agreed and it causes others to lose tour time. So make sure it's agreed where to meet and what time and a CLOSE backup place to go to possible eat/wait if not there. Its no way to make things 100, but it helps save time.....I have had to wait an hour on many trips because others did not come back on time and then the tour guide has to go look for them while others lose time doing nothing,
Cuidado al contratar la excursión con Viator, ante cualquier problema, no lo asumen. Nuestra experiencia fue que el día de la excursión amaneció lloviendo fuerte en Marrakech. En el punto de encuentro le comentamos al chofer de suspender la excursión por el temporal, pero nos indicó que en el Valle no llovia, por lo que accedimos a ir. Una vez allí, el temporal era igual o peor, por lo que no nos bajamos ni del coche para evitar peligros en el Valle, volviendo a Marrakech. Si no nos hubieran mentido, nos habriamos ahorrado el trayecto. Expusimos el problema a Viator, ya que no se hizo la excursión y nos dicen en nuestra cara que la visita se ha realizado, ya que dan credibilidad al operador antes que al cliente, aun acreditando que no se llegó a realizar. Dinero fácil por un trabajo no realizado, y dinero perdido por clientes por una excursión no disfrutada. Os aviso para que no os pase lo mismo ante un problema, ya que hay más sitios donde contratar la excursión. Espero os sirva de ayuda.
The Tour was great. We got picked up from our hotel in a mini bus with a small group and headed towards Ourika Valley. The Driver makes a stop at a shop to take photos of the atlas mountains on the roof top. From there we drove for 45 minutes or so towards the valley. The trip is scenic with water and mountains on both sides. On the way there, they make a stop at a Argan oil and spice shop, where they show you how its made. They say you don't have to buy anything and I definitely wouldn't because you can get all the stuff for a much cheaper in the Madina, but they dont force anything upon you. 20 minute stop. From there they continue heading towards the valley. Once we reached our stop, we began our hike up the mountain.
It is a 1.5 hour hike, so be PREPARED! wear comfortable shoes and pack light. the hike is definitely worth it and breath taking! Just be very careful with each step as it is quite risky. I would keep a close eye on children!
Not recommended for the unfit.
once you come back down from the mountain and waterfall, there is a stop at a lunch spot The Tour Guides Buddy of course. The prices are over-priced and they give you amenu with 3 course meal 120 dh, 12USD. Keep in mind there is another menu, where you do not have to order all the 3 items, they just wont show you it.
If you do not want to each lunch, you have no choice but to wait for other group members to finish 1 hour wait
On the way back there is a stop at a berber house, they show you how they live, pretty interesting.
Got back around 4 o clock. Overall trip was 7 hours long.
Une journée forte agréable à la découverte du Haut-Atlas. Des vues et des paysages somptueux! Notre guide Abdel a été fort sympathique et nous à fait profiter de ses connaissances de la région ainsi que de sa culture personnelle. Une belle rencontre!
Notez qu'il s'agit là d'une randonnée en montagne, que nombre de passages sont difficiles et parfois même périlleux.
Ainsi je conseille fortement cette excursion, sauf si vous avez du mal à vous déplacer ou que vous êtes accompagner de jeunes enfants.
