Reviews about the 1-Day Trip Marrakech to Ourika Valley
Splendid Ourika Valley day trip
My mother and I went on a day trip from Marrakesh to the Ourika valley with Ali and Omar- and had a wonderful time.
Our guides are such pleasant gentlemen, who took care of my mother, whilst assuring that I got to see everything.
We were given good information about everything we saw and got to stop at a Berber home (with a wonderful Berber mama who took great joy in having us in her home), at an Organic Cooperative and at a rickety bridge across a valley that I was satisfied to cross (as Omar gleefully took pictures of my precarious steps)
When we got to the Sitti Fatima, my mother stayed at a restaurant with a wonderful view of the river with Ali, whilst Omar guided me up to the waterfall itself- it was a great climb, and he was generous sufficient to take to role of photographer!
