What people are saying about Al Haouz

Wow what a great experience. From the moment We were picked up Marian was the best host. He gave us so much info of the Marrakesh and throughout the trip he explained so much and was always happy and friendly. The trip exceeded our expectations and one we will never forget. The trek up the mountains was incredible and again the host was so kind and helpful. We had lots of stops and shown all the valleys and the lunch in the village was the icing on the cake. I’d highly recommend this trip. If i could give more stars I would. I’m so glad I chose this excursion as there was lots of similar on GetYourGuide but I truly believe this one will be the best !!!

It was a very full day where we enjoyed the Waterfalls, visited several valleys of the Atlas Mountains and ate at the home of a Berber family and returned to Marrakech.
