Great excursion, nothing to say about the organization. We visited a cooperative, we had lots of explanations about plants, their benefits, etc., it's very interesting! 0 purchase obligation. Our guide Hassan was at the top during the hike. However, I didn't like the fact that we were forced into a restaurant for lunch, given that we have a lot of choices around.

Nice excursion, visit to an argon oil cooperative and medicinal plants without any obligation to buy, hike in the mountains of magnificent rocks (level not so easy!, we did it with children aged 3 and 5 ), a top guide who explains a lot of things to us and warns us against tourist scams (Hassan, thank you very much!) meal at the edge of the tools after the walk. Very nice day I do not forget Ibrahim, great driver, very punctual! THANKS

Beautiful day to do, to get out of the bustling city, refreshing valley if it is too hot in Marrakech, you could eat there with your feet in the cool water while admiring the mountains with sometimes their snow-capped peaks. But it is a very tourist destination, we are waiting for you in every corner. Convenient with an organized excursion with a cheap guide that will take you where you need to go, but you can also go there on your own and discover at random.
