    Notre guide vraiment très gentil et serviable. Nous étions 6 pour l'excursion avec trois langues différentes. pour la randonnée il vaut mieux être en très petit groupe car elle n'est pas accessible à tout le monde, beaucoup de passage dans les cailloux et 500m de dénivelé... mais très sympa à faire

    We had a nice day trip. Interesting stops, especially the argan oil cooperative. Pass a long hike, not even demanding, if you are in normally good shape, as we will soon 60;) Nice guide, but could not answer enough questions..maybe because he did not know ..? Took the trip in January, remember warm clothes..just around 10 degrees in the mountains.

    Great experience with both the driver and tour guide. Visited the co-operative where we were treated to some great offerings and the host was fantastic. Then stopped over for some pictures prior to reaching the Ourika valley. The journey up is not for people with limited mobility but definitely worth it when you get there. Hasan (guide) was fantastic helping members of our party along the way and even helped negotiate with some of the sellers. A great experience. Mahmood then dropped us off promptly back near our hotel. All in all a great experience thank you guys!! Amtiaz
