Had an amazing day, starting the morning with a camel ride experience, exploring the waterfalls in afternoon followed by an authentic lunch in a local village. The tour guide Mustafa was amazing and very knowledgeable, and very kind! Expect to be drinking cups of a tea everywhere you go!

All the experience has been great!! The whole route is amazing, the experience with camels and the food! The guide (Lahcen) is a great man, with a lot of knowledge, sympathy and attention!! I would recomend this experience without a doubt. Thanks for everything Lahcen!!!
