Full description

Experience the beauty of the Ourika Valley up-close on this full-day scenic tour from Marrakesh, and escape the hustle and bustle of the city for the day. The Ourika Valley is the closest day trip from Marrakesh, but it’s not just its convenience that makes it special.

Drive towards the Atlas Mountains, taking in the beautiful landscape of green meadows and authentic 16th and 17th-century Berber villages. If you take your tour on a Monday, you can even stop at a roadside souk. See fruit orchards, vegetable terraces, and villages clinging to the side of hills. Marvel at the labor undertaken by the Berbers who hoisted materials to construct small houses up mountainsides, and work the terraces in a hostile environment. Continue along the valley of palm trees, following the Ourika River. Fruit trees, tiny hamlets, riverside restaurants, and the summer homes of the wealthy will keep you occupied. Go to Setti Fatma to feel the refreshing waters. Feel the spray on your face as you cool down from the African heat, along with the locals of Marrakech who have made it their favorite weekend retreat.

we had a great day with Karim our guide and our driver. Too bad we couldn't go to the waterfalls due to bad weather and the fact that we have young children. Thank you for the hospitality of the restaurant to welcome us by the fireside while waiting for the return of the group.

EXCELLENT! Undoubtedly the best activity for 1 day. We have gone as a couple but it is an activity designed for all types of public. Mohamed and Majzoub are charming and very attentive. They bought us bottles of water, they guided us at all times, they speak several languages, in short a 10. In our case, we forgot a bag inside the bus and we asked if we could recover it and the same night Majzoub came to bring it. The truth that has won our hearts. Regarding the activity, we also liked the botanical learning and oils such as argan oil. Do not hesitate to go because it is 100% recommended! We are from Andorra and we made friends with the whole group, we hope to return very soon!

We loved this excursion! We discovered a small village with a lot of charm. We made several stops to discover the authenticity of several activities in Morocco. We saw very beautiful landscapes and waterfalls. Be careful, the path can be complicated, take comfortable and suitable shoes. We especially liked the small local market, where tourists don't usually go. We highly recommend!
