Overall an excellent tour and the guides we had were excellent and caring. They were very knowledgeable. All day tour and the day we went it was just perfect. I would recommend to others to use the tour and great hike down and our boys enjoyed the swimming!! I do recommend that flip flops are a bit risky as you go down the rocks. Just a good paid of sandals are good enough.

Get prepared for high temperatures and to go down and up in not very easy paths.That said, get prepared for an amazing day: the fresh bath, the monkeys, the waterfalls, the local people enjoiing themselfs

I did this trip with my wife and three teenage children and it was fantastic from start to finish. We were contacted a couple of days before hand to advise of our collection time from the hotel and we were collected on time. When we arrived at the falls we were met by our knowledgeable guides. The walk down to the falls can be a bit slippy in places so ensure you wear suitable footwear and not flip flops like some of the people in our group! At the bottom of the falls we decided to take the raft across with was well worth the 20MAD as you get take right up to the bottom of the waterfalls. On the walk back up to the top you get the chance to take some pictures with the friendly Barbary apes. Once almost at the top we stopped for some lunch at one of the local restaurants which was a very reasonable 100MAD each for bread, salad, choice of main meal, fruit and as much bottled water as you can drink. Overall an excellent trip and very well organised. Don't be put off by the 3 hour journey each way as the experience is well worth it.

This tour was definitely worth the money spent, but make sure to bring comfortable shoes as you'll be hiking down the water fall to get a closer look and then back up to have lunch at a restaurant. The views we saw during this tour was spectacular and like no other. I cannot recall the name of our tour guide but he was super knowledgeable and gave us explanations a long the way. He was also very attentive as he made sure the group was always together. Definitely recommend this tour.

A very long journey to get to the falls, but once there our two guides made us very welcome, they then led us through Olive groves to the top of the falls. From there a visit to a Berber home where they made the Argan Oil products.
From there we descended down a steep slope to the bottom of the falls, Even though my wife has difficulty walking and has to use a stick both guides assisted her and made sure she was alright.
At the bottom you crossed the pool under the falls on a raft, if you have a swimming costume take a plunge into the water. At the other side there are a lot of stairs to climb, again my wife was assisted, the guide getting a chair for her to rest and allowing her to travel at her own pace.
At the top wild Monkeys would sit on your shoulder whilst being fed, from here we then ate a local restaurant. A big thank you to the two guides for going the extra and helping my wife

This trip was so much fun and an incredible experience. Be prepared for a lot of walking on uneven terrain and stairs. It was well worth it, though. Our guides were fantastic and receptive to my needs, as having an artificial large. Really great!

Do not leave Marrakech without a visit to the Ouzoud Waterfalls the tallest in Africa. Our guides Ibrahim and Omar took us to see the waterfalls at various vantage points so that we could take pictures of the impressive view. Ibrahim took us to a Berber house where he explained to us how Berber houses are constructed, how many brothers lived together to form communities and how they were self sufficient. We went to a womens cooperative making Argan products. We also walked to an area of the waterfall where various members of the group were able to either sit and relax or jump into the water and have a swim. We then walked towards the main waterfall where you could either take a boat up to the waterfall and back to the other side or you could cross the water across sand bags.
Walking up the steps to the top of the mountain we saw apes who people were feeding and taking pictures.
We stayed in the area for lunch before being dropped off at our hotel/ Riad

The waterfall and the surrounding areas are amazing , worth to visit and the local guide is very helpful and polite, but the travelling there from Marrakech is under the standard. Fully filled, crowdy small buses , narrow seats at the back seats, delaying from the pick up time, poor roads, some serpentines causing sickness, big distance etc as so like a torture. That's why I gave only 3 stars. Sorry.
