The trip was great with a very helpful driver who made the tour more enjoyable.The location of the falls was not looking good at the start but it wasn't far from the drop off point for the walk to the falls proper which did look impressive.Whilst most things stated as included in the trip by the company were correct I should say that no drinks were included even though the booking said bottled water would be provided. There was a stop for toilets and to buy drinks before we arrived but no water was provided and drinks had to be bought at lunch as well. Use the toilets at the rest stop before and after the trip, avoid going at the falls if you can, they're not well kept or clean at all.
We were picked up spot on time at 8am from our hotel, our driver was pleasant and very polite, he helped us up into the vehicle and was quite the gentleman. On route to the Falls he gave us a little history on Marrakech, but I felt a little more info would have been appreciated. Its about a two and a half hour drive up to the Falls, once there we were elated at the views. We were then handed over to our walking guide, Salah, who looked after us for the next three hours. We went down the falls via dirt footpath, on route Salah gave us information history on the of Ouzoud Falls and the people who used to live in the caves in the rocks. He was very knowledgeable. Once at the bottom of the Falls, there are a few places to eat. You can also, if you dare, have a ride on a homemade raft which will take you under the waterfalls, you will get wet. Its roughly MAD 30 per person if there are five or more riding, otherwise its MAD 50. We then went to have lunch included in the price which was a choice of Beef Tajen or Chicken Skewers called Roasted Chicken and chips, this was served with seasoned chopped tomatoes and olives, dessert is also served after along with Mint Tea, a drink is also provided with the meal.
Once lunch is finished we then made our journey back up to the top of the Falls, on route there are several venders which you can buy souvenirs from. Once at the top of the falls you then meet your driver who then takes you back to your hotel. A thoroughly enjoyable day and exhausting, this trip is not for those who are not fit. Will definitely recommend and would visit again.
I would have given 5 stars if our driver had provided us with a little more info on the History of Marrakech and the Berbers, this decision was made as on a previous visit to Marrakech I did a trip to another part of the Atlas Mountains an our driver on that trip gave us far more information on the history of Marrakech and the Berbers.
This was an amazing tour. The waterfalls are absolutely breathtaking. It's a bit of a long journey to get to them about a two hour drive but it is definitely worth it. Our driver was great - he spoke English perfectly and gave us a big insight into Moroccian culture. Our guide at the falls was great too! He taught us a lot about the Berbers and allowed us to ask a lot of questions about their culture. The place we ate lunch has a fantastic view. All around amazing.
My only comment is that you start at the top of the falls and hike your way to the bottom. The hike takes about an hour and is a bit steep. I would not recommend this trip for the elderly.
The Ouzoud Falls trip was definitely the highlight of our time in Marrakech! Our driver Ahmed was very professional and spoke English very well, and the local guide Ibrahim was so knowledgable and told us so much about the local Berber culture. The view from lunch could not have been better, we literally had the best seat on the outdoor patio of the restaurant right in front of the waterfalls. The drive is definitely long, but the countryside has so much to see and take in along the way that it helps the time pass by much quicker. Overall this trip was worth every penny, and I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Marrakech for more than a few days!
This was a remarkably well-organised tour.
Our driver Ahmed was a very personable, polite and professional young man, who went out of his way to make sure that the long drive to Ouzoud Falls was interspersed with photo opportunities along the way. The scenery along the route was stunning in any case, and the short stop at the small olive oil press was enjoyable.
At the falls, Ibrahim took over and once again he impressed us with his professionalism and courtesy. He was also very knowledgeable about the falls, and the history of the Berbers who call the area home. He made the day truly memorable, picking routes and spots that gave us amazing views of the Ouzoud Falls, and some great photos to recall the day.
We would highly recommend this tour with Ahmed and Ibrahim as your hosts for the day!
The entire experience was amazing! Mustapha our driver was very personable so the ride both ways was easy breezy. He took the time to get to know us and interact with our children. Mustapha even entertained my photography passion, when we passed the market he let me get out and explore to capture a few candid moments My Hubby and kids were sleep. After the drive there we were introduced to Ibrahim the tour guide and began the hike. The falls and mountain landscape in general were absolutely breath taking! We were able to take our time as we soaked in all of the sights and sounds of the mountains. Ibrahim stopped along the hike to explain a few of the sights and cultural significance of the land. After a nice hike around the falls we stopped to dine at a restaurant tucked nicely into the mountain side. We had a table reserved with an amazing view of the falls. The food was delicious as well, traditional Moroccan tajine! After that we walked up the long flight of mountain steps along the falls back to the top. The best part of the trip for me was interacting with the monkeys and feeding them fruit and peanuts. Our children absolutely loved the monkeys!!! They were so cute and surprisingly gentle. The overall experience was very enjoyable, the natural beauty and the friendly locals made this trip a win, win, situation. When we visit Morocco again I definitely want to take this trip a second time, it was just a super cool experience. P.S. Everything was included in the price for the trip. Good Deal! Thank you Mustapha and Ibrahim...
Throughout my stay at Marrakech, this was the best sightseeing tour I enjoyed the most. It was breathtaking and blissful. It was also nice visiting the Berber village and having an authentic Morrocon meal for lunch overlooking the falls. I was accompanied by Ahmed who picked me up from the hotel on time and took me to the Ouzoud Falls. When I arrived there, Ibrahim took me and others for the excursion. Thank you so much Ahmed and Ibrahim who were always there to accompany us and thank you for all the knowledge and information you shared with us because I learned so much on that day. And both speak very fluent English. If I'm going to the Ouzoud falls again, I would like to have yall both again as my guide.
