This day trip departing from Marrakech will allow you to explore the paths to the bottom of the falls take you through the groves of olive trees and offer many fine views of the falls and their surroundings. Follow other paths to the top of the falls where you can see many grain mills (from which the falls get their name), as well as an astonishing view looking down on the cascades.

Know More about this tour

Enjoy a day by walking through the shaded olive groves, where the trees have been owned by generations of Berber families. Continue along the paths and begin to descend to the gorge below the falls, first looking out over the valley spreading before you. Walk along the river rapids and continue through the shaded groves, until you come in sight of the falls. Three large cascades feed into a single fall that crashes into the pool below. Descend down and take a barge across the river and into this basin, bringing you closer to the falls, where you can feels it's spray. After a pause to enjoy the sheer beauty and enormity of this wonder the barge continues on, taking you to the opposite bank.

Here you can now continue to relax and enjoy the scenery or perhaps get some lunch. Restaurants and cafes can be found at several points along the way as you begin your journey back to the top, so there are plenty of places and views to choose from as you sit, rest, and enjoy some traditional Moroccan cuisine. Finally though it is time to move on, and continue back up. Along the way are several lookout points that provide even more spectacular views of the cascades, and the rainbows that appear in it's mists. Eventually it is time to return to the city and enjoy the totally different wonder that is night-time in Marrakech.

    Trip was nice. Long drive to get there. A bit crowded also. But nice views. I imagine the waterfall would be awesome with a little more rain.

    Very well organised trip. The place was beautiful and the drive there wasn’t too long. Only thing was it felt very touristic and you couldn’t really fully enjoy the environment.

    The falls were beautiful. We had a fantastic view of them from the restaurant. For lunch, the tagines were good but the rest of the meal was unexciting. Our guide at the falls had interesting things to say. His English wasn't great (he normally leads French tours instead), so it helped that we knew some French. He was good at steering us to good but less-crowded viewing spots. The biggest improvement would be if the driver had something to say on the 3-hour drive each way.

    Be warned, most of the day is spent travelling! However, the 4 hours spent at the waterfalls are delightful. Stunning views, a fun boat trip to see the falls up close and even some time to see the monkeys! However, although a swimming stop was mentioned, there was no clear opportunity to swim. Our guide - Mohammed - was a joy, nothing was too much trouble and he had a permanent smile on his face. He really made the experience more special!

    The driver was nice and punctual, the guide was very respectful, patient and he cared about us going down that hill safe. The food was tasty and bit expensive. The place is amazing, heavenly, a well worthy trip.

    Loved this experience! It was quite a ride but definatly worth it. We even enjoyed the ride there, our chauffeur provided some information about the villages we drove through and was overall very friendly. Also this way we got to see quite some more. The waterfalls were stunning and there were a lot of monkeys to see, beautifull!

    Excellent experience with our tour guide, I think his name was Mohammed but I am unsure. He was the kindest person! Thank you for a great time :)

    This was an enjoyable trip, however it was way, way to long. It was supposed to be 10 hours and was actually almost 12, which ruined my evening plans. You need to schedule accordingly.

    Our driver was professional and punctual. He picked us up at the right and he brought us back as mentioned in the itinerary. The guide, who waited for us in the parking place near the waterfalls was having little bit of difficulty with the english language bur although we understood the context and he was ready to explain again if we lost some information. We were very happy and satisfied with did tour.

    Wonderful trip, highly recommended. Please be aware the terrain can be quite steep and rough/slippery so wear suitable shoes for climbing down. The drive is about 3 hours with a stop for toilet and refreshment. Mohammed, our guide was lovely! The waterfalls are beautiful and I swam when we got to the bottom which was wonderful! You will need 20dr for the boat trip around the big fall. Optional lunch but I highly recommend! It was a bargain! 3 courses for 100dr. Starter of bread, salad, dips; choice of lunch tagine or skewers with chips. I had the vegetarian tagine and was given a side of chips as well. Fruit salad for dessert. After lunch a climb back to the bus, on the way you will see some mountain monkeys. There are men there who will encourage them to sit on you for a photo for a fee.
