Day Tours From Marrakech
Ouzoud Waterfalls – 1 Day Tour from Marrakech:
Pick up at 08:00 morning from your riad and transfer to the waterfalls at Ouzoud. These are the highest falls in Morocco and, although it is a climb down to the bottom of the falls, there are steps. Ouzoud is a popular camping site for Moroccans in Summer.
Ourika Valley – 1 Day Tour from Marrakech:
Pick up at 08:00 morning from your riad and transfer along the Ourika valley to the Berber village of Setti Fatima where you could hire a local guide and walk to the waterfalls(45 mins). Also included is Oukaimeden but please note that the road is occasionally closed in winter months due to snow.
Essaouira – 1 day Tour from Marrakech:
Pick up at 08:00 morning from your riad and transfer to the coastal fishing port of Essaouira. There is the option to visit a women’s argan oil co-operative en route – the argan tree only grows on the West coast of Morocco and the oil is extracted for salad oil, amlou (mixed with almonds and honey to make a delicious paste) and skin care. If you want to camel trek along the beach your driver will take you to where the camels are. In Essaouira you can wander at your leisure through this relaxed and friendly small town e.g. ramparts, craft shops in the medina, art galleries and fishing harbor. For lunch there are many small cafés where fresh fish is served.
1 Day Trip From Marrakech to High Atlas and Kasbah ait Benhaddou:
Pick up at 08:00 morning from your riad and transfer across Tizi-n-Tichka to visit the World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou, one of Morocco’s most spectacular ksours (fortified villages) that once stood on the route of the trans-Saharan caravan route through the Atlas mountains to the fondouks of Marrakech. Time permitting, visit the Berber village of Telouet and Kasbah el Glaoui on the return to Marrakech .
