Fantastic marrakech day tour to Ourika, to see the mountains, Berber villages and houses, waterfalls and river. Definitely take walking shoes. If you scared of heights then maybe this isn't the trip for you. 2hrs walking the mountains which was stunning. Our walking guide was fab, we had little girl of about 4yrs old and she loved the trip, our guide was amazing with her.

Very cold in Ourika so make sure to wrap up. The Atlas mountains were breathtaking but make sure you wear sensible walking shoes as it is more of a climb than a walk over crag face, rocks and high steps.
