Great experience. Friendly driver & guide. Knowledgable. Delicious Tagine at the riverside Tafraout restaurant. Not pushy at the argan oil place. Memorable day. Take some small change 2-20dh coins & notes & buy something from the locals. Pick up was punctual. Good communications. We had a mixed group with English & Spanish translations. The walk is challenging & not appropriate for the very young or old & frail. As ever on these waterfall hikes wear appropriate footwear & ascend/descend with caution. Mahdi & HASAN were both excellent & very friendly. Thank you guys. Highly recommended & affordable. Didn’t get to stop at any Souks as we visited in Jan & the days are short. 100% 😀. Thank you 🙏

It was ok, swung by a botanist shop so we could buy some commissioned goods and then the guide took us up the hill for a view of the falls. Pretty straight forward. The pickup was smooth and the drop off was late afternoon so we got spent a good amount of time outdoors. The driver was good

Had a wonderful day at the Atlas mountains and Ourika Valley. Ismael picked us from the hotel, he was very hospitable and refreshing to know he spoke perfect English and was able to give us information on the city and Ourika with the Berber community background knowledge and the communities that live in Atlas Mountains. Hassan the hiking guide was also amazing and ensured our safety came first when climbing the mountains. He was very friendly and patient and took lots of pictures for us and knew what we needed. He made sure we were looked after well. I couldnt go the to waterfalls so he took my teenage daughter there and she ssid he was a fabulous tour guide. On the way back to the hotel Ismael went out of his way for us to visit a small farm so we could feed the goats and to cash points to get cash. The kebabs were nice at Ourika valley and the mint tea. Highly recommend these 2 guides as they make a great team.
