Going by the reviews this looked like the best day excursion to do whilst in Marrakesh and I and #39;m pleased to say the reviews were spot on. Mustafa was our driver and he was an entertaining guide. The highlights of the trip for me was a trek up to a waterfall and the meal at the Berber house.
Amazing tour guide Shakeeb was friendly and welcoming. Quite a trek up to the waterfall but well worth it. I would recommend good footwear with grip as it can get slippery on the rocks. The meal was delicious at the Berber house. Amazing experience highlight of my visit to Morocco!
The hike up the waterfalls was fantastic, as was the lunch in the Berber village. The scenery in general was beautiful plus the calmness and fresh air of the mountains was a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our guide Mustapha was a great guy, full of information and a good sense of humour. Would highly recommend this tour and this company.
Abdul the guide was fantastic, very honest, good English and held a great knowledge of Marrakesh and the Atlas Mountains. The tour itself was great, only part i found disappointing was the waterfall but that was mostly our fault for confusing it with the Ouzoud Falls. Minibus was clean and well kept with lots of photo opportunities as Abdul stopped regularly and took photos of the group. The stop for food was brilliant view and the food quality, Abdul also gave advice on how to deal with the annoying people who try to sell you rubbish on the mountain. Brilliant for the price and would definitely recommend. Bring a good camera and zoom lens and you will be able to get some fantastic shots of the lake and mountain
this is an original day trip ,where you can see the original morrocoan people and how they live in the mountains.Not a tourist trap,but the real thing!You should definitely take that day trip!
This was a fantastic tour, we really enjoyed it. The guide was very knowledgeable of the area and was very easy to understand. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
Great trip. Would recommend for anyone, knoweldgeable and experienced guides. Great food and amazing scenery.
My husband and thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. Abdul was an amazing guide and very knowledgable of the local area. Loved lunch at the Berger house lots of lovely memories
Excellent day trip, lovely guide and the home-made food was incredible. Thank you so much!
absolutely breath taking, superb and fantastic!! Loved every second of our amazing trip! Our guide Abdul was extremely knowledgable, hospitable, very kind and funny and made us feel like part of family. Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for that special non crowded true Morrocon experience
This tour was amazing! Definitely worth every penny!!! Just make sure you wear a good pair of hiking/tennis shoes as there is a little bit of climbing to get to the waterfall.
This tour was amazing. Abdul was our guide, and he was perfect. We could not have asked for anyone more knowledgeable or passionate about Moroccan culture. Abdul was also extremely kind. We first went to hike a waterfall, which was beautiful. We saw the countryside as well. The highlight of the trip was having lunch in a Berber village in a local's home. I cannot say enough good things about Abdul and how much we appreciated him. I have already recommended this tour and Abdul to friends who are thinking about visiting Marrakech.
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!
