    Hicimos el tour privado y fue una experiencia maravillosa. Los paisajes son increíbles, tomamos té en una casa bereber, hicimos trekking en una cascada y tuvimos el almuerzo a la orilla del valle de Ourika. Excelente servicio y muy amable nuestro guía/conductor!!

    What an amazing area! Learned so much. Saw some gorgeous terrain. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and personable. Even squeezed us some orange juice at one of our stops. Rug making operation was really interesting. We had a lovely lunch there consisting of some of the vegetables that they grow on their property. Stopped at a private residence for tea.

    Visite quasi privée car nous sommes les deux seuls visiteurs dans le monospace. Arrêt dans une famille berbère pour boire le thé, on sent que le chauffeur n'attend qu'une chose, c'est de passer à la suite. Arrêt au milieu de nulle part pour monter sur un dromadaire, faire quelques centaines de mètres, prendre quelques photos avec l'Atlas en fond et repartir. Tout ça fait cliché. Arrêt pour visiter une "coopérative" constituée de femmes qui fabriquent des produits à base d'huile d'Argan. On aimerait en savoir un peu plus mais on sent bien que notre présence ne se justifie que si nous achetons les produits élaborés par ces femmes. Un peu décevant. Pour finir, vallée de l'Ourika et des cascades à visiter. Nous étions venus pour une balade un peu physique, nous sommes servis mais arrivés à la première cascade, effectivement magnifique, notre guide berbère nous informe que pour les autres cascades, il faut lui payer un supplément. Nous pensions que tout était compris et nous n'avions pas pris assez d'argent. Déception pour notre guide et nous-mêmes. Un repas correct au bord de l'eau, un moment pour observer comment les berbères récoltent et expédient leurs pommes vers le reste du pays, par caisses portées à l'épaule (impressionnant). Retour un peu plus folklorique ou on en apprend un peu plus sur les usages routiers (le plus téméraire est prioritaire) ce qui fait rire notre chauffeur et nous aussi d'ailleurs. On attendait un peu plus d'explications, un peu plus d'histoire, un peu plus de culture. Peut-être attendions nous un peu trop ? En résumé, un peu trop d'improvisation, de précipitation et un petit manque d'informations. c'est dommage car la visite est vraiment superbe et certains paysages magnifiques

    Tout était au top! Le guide était pile à l'heure pour venir nous chercher dans notre riad. La visite privée est bien plus agréable que le bus touristique! Certes on roule pas mal dans la journée mais tout est parfaitement calé (la maison berbère, la randonnée avec guide, le repas du midi, la promenade en dromadaire et le café dans un lieu magique). En plus notre guide était très sympa et prenait son temps pour que nous puissions profiter au maximum des paysages!

    Initially the guide picked me up from my hotel.
    I found the guide spoke no English so I am very fustrated. The driver called his manager and I got a English guide who was excellent.
    Things happen but this should of happened as the company has great reviews. I would recommend this company. I the drive I found was very argent and wanted to play RNB music I had to ask him many times to turn it off.

    Longue ballade à travers l'Atals, peut etre un peu trop de voiture.... Mais néanmoins très chaleureux accueil pour le thé dans une famille berbère avec un thé à la menthe délicieux, et les pains tout frais. Superbe randonnée vers la cascade, merci à mon guide qui m'a bien aidée pour grimper là haut et aussi pour redescendre (mes jambes n'ont plus 20 ans…..)

    A short ride out of Marrakech to see the local villages and have tea in a Berber house is wonderful. The lake is man made and disappointing but the waterfall compensates. While the village below is a little touristy, the three piece sofas perched by the river by the many many restaurants are unique. Take good walking shoes as the hike up the fall can be slippy and requires some basic fitness. The views at the top are well worth it.
