    The driver was waiting for us at the agreed meeting point on time. Then we went to the Altlas Mountains for about an hour, stopping at beautiful vantage points to take photos. Our driver explained everything very carefully and tried very hard to answer the group's questions. The hike was significantly shorter than expected with 1 hour return. Sneakers with a good sole are essential for this, as the rocks are quite slippery. The whole thing got a hint of coffee driving with a visit to an argan oil production, which was just about buying products - which of course you don't have to. At noon there was the best tagine of our entire stay, cooked by the Berber women. Lovingly served on a terrace with a wonderful view of the mountains and the valley. We were lucky that we were only 5 people, which is why you could talk a lot with the driver about the country and its people.

    The driver (Aziz) collected us at the hotel promptly and we spent the entire day in a small group (4 tourists). He was very attentive and knowledgeable and made the trip interesting and fun. He knew the area and places we visited very well and was also happy to talk generally about life in Morocco and family etc. I really found him to be pleasant company throughout the day. The waterfall hike was good fun but I would advise people that it is quite a decent hike (1 hour + up and down). This is a rocky terrain so be prepared and for sure have a good pair of trainers or boots. In fairness the guide who escorted us up was excellent in assisting my wife who was a little nervous of the climb. There is a nice cafe to have tea at the waterfall. We stopped for lunch at a Berber house in a village (don't remember the name). The food was excellent and the view even better.
