Ouzoud Falls Guided Day Trip from Marrakech
After 2h30min journey meet your local knowledgeable guide for a walking tour of about one hour and follow the path to the lip of the falls. Then, behold the tiered cascades that tumble from different heights down into a natural amphitheater of red-colored rock cliffs.
Absorb the roar of the cascades as you take photos, and with luck, see some of the Barbary apes that congregate by the water or one of the shimmering rainbows that form in the mists wreathed around the plunging waters.
Visit several view points and walk down steps to the base and explore the bottom part of the waterfalls on an included boat trip and see the falls from a unique angle.
Having taken in the full beauty of the area, enjoy an exclusive lunch at one of the restaurants along the path to the falls with an amazing view.
Lastly, enjoy your return journey to Marrakech, where your trip ends with drop-off at the meeting point.

5 of us took a private tour day trip from Marrakech to the stunning Ouzoud Falls. The drive each way is around 2+ hours, but this was made very short by Mido, our driver and guide. We had a very enlightening discussion to and from the Falls, and all really enjoyed the conversation. There was a separate guide for our walk around the falls, but Mido insisted on joining also, and was very courteous and helpful to my wife during the slippier parts of the walk. Lunch at the Falls was excellent also.Overall, I thoroughly recommend both the tour and driver.
Great trip, highly recommend! Driver Jamal was fantastic. One word of warning: wear hiking/running shoes as there are parts where it's quite steep.
This place was beautiful. Would highly recommend staying a night there. Would definitely return. Expect long journey.
We were picked up spot on time at 8am from our hotel, our driver was pleasant and very polite, he helped us up into the vehicle and was quite the gentleman. On route to the Falls he gave us a little history on Marrakech, but I felt a little more info would have been appreciated. Its about a two and a half hour drive up to the Falls, once there we were elated at the views. We were then handed over to our walking guide, Salah, who looked after us for the next three hours. We went down the falls via dirt footpath, on route Salah gave us information history on the of Ouzoud Falls and the people who used to live in the caves in the rocks. He was very knowledgeable. Once at the bottom of the Falls, there are a few places to eat. You can also, if you dare, have a ride on a homemade raft which will take you under the waterfalls, you will get wet. Its roughly MAD 30 per person if there are five or more riding, otherwise its MAD 50. We then went to have lunch included in the price which was a choice of Beef Tajen or Chicken Skewers called Roasted Chicken and chips, this was served with seasoned chopped tomatoes and olives, dessert is also served after along with Mint Tea, a drink is also provided with the meal. Once lunch is finished we then made our journey back up to the top of the Falls, on route there are several venders which you can buy souvenirs from. Once at the top of the falls you then meet your driver who then takes you back to your hotel. A thoroughly enjoyable day and exhausting, this trip is not for those who are not fit. Will definitely recommend and would visit again. I would have given 5 stars if our driver had provided us with a little more info on the History of Marrakech and the Berbers, this decision was made as on a previous visit to Marrakech I did a trip to another part of the Atlas Mountains an our driver on that trip gave us far more information on the history of Marrakech and the Berbers.
Oh my gosh, this was the most fun of any tour we took. Our guide Mustafa was informative, but had such a good since of humor, it just made the tour so much fun!! Of course, the couple with us, Michael and Sherry from Sacramento were a blast!! Great Tour!! At times the stairs were challenging, but doable!!
This was a once in lifetime view of a remote mountain gem. Be willing to hike down and back up! some rugged, steep paths. Don't miss the macaque monkeys!
