    Excellent tour picked up by sherif on time from our riad, who gave us info on the way to the valley, also stopped at an argan oil cooperative, so could see how made . Was handed over to the very lovely adil our guide was excellent, wear proper boots, difficult hike but worth it, Waterfalls fabulous

    Good trip, great way to see real life in Morocco. Take good shoes though, there is a trek up to the waterfall which is amazing but I was unprepared in sandals and it spoiled the experience a bit.

    Brilliant tour and guide, Younes! We went to the waterfalls and valley of Ourkira. It was a lovely trip taking in a visit for breakfast to a Berber house as well as lunch by the river in the sunshine next to the mountains. Younes made us feel safe arguing with a local when he gave us bad water! 5*
