From Marrakesh: Ourika Valley & Atlas Mountains Day Tour
- Transportation included
- Duration: 10 hours
Omar, our driver, was probably the friendliest and most easy going moroccan we met in Marrakech, that was not just nice to get us to tip him. He made the ride fun and easy and made sure we were all doing fine. The climb was short and not that difficult, and our guide made sure to pay attention to each one of our steps making sure we were safe. Although he was really nice and lived in the county nearby he spoke only french and very poor english, being english the language of our preference. Otherwise, the landscape was beautiful and although it was very touristic it was a nice escape from hectic Marrakech.
Ahmad was extremely kind, knowledgeable and spoke English fluently! He picked us up on time and stopped to get us water and coffee on our way to the Atlas Mountains. He took us through beautiful scenic routes and we stopped to have lunch at the most beautiful home with the best view!! Ahmad was extremely kind and patient & gave us a ton of information regarding the Atlas Mountains and the people who live there!! Ahmad made our experience in Atlas Mountains incredible!! I highly recommend booking through this agency and I highly recommend requesting Ahmad as your tour guide!!!
Our guide Rashid was fantastic. Due to a mudslide he took us to a different area. He made sure that we had a full day and new experiences. He was also great with out 11 year old son and made sure to interact with him without treating him like a child. When our son wanted to pet one of the wandering sheep, he caught one for him so our son could hold him! We also had a fantastic meal at a restaurant before heading home that was included. He also made sure to take photos of all of us together to document our time. I would highly recommend!
The scenery was breathtaking with the high Atlas Mountains streaked with snow. The walk to the waterfall was exhilarating but well worth it. I have found the Moroccan people so friendly and Abdulla our excellent guide was no exception. He was very thoughtful, helpful and exceptionally knowledgeable about Morocco and everything of interest. The lunch at a local berbers home was delicious and a wonderful experience. All in all despite it being a long day travelling many miles, I would highly recommend this trip.
Fantastic trip to see the mountains, Berber villages and houses, waterfalls and river. Definitely take walking shoes. If you scared of heights then maybe this isn't the trip for you. 2hrs walking the mountains which was stunning. Our walking guide was fab, we had little girl of about 4yrs old and she loved the trip, our guide was amazing with her.
