This was the best thing we did in Morocco! I highly recommend this activity. The ride was quick enough and comfortable. The Waterfall and area were gorgeous. Our guide Hussein (or Al Hussein) was superb! He was so funny, thorough, kind and enthusiastic. He made us laugh throughout and took very good care of us. He also gave us options to go through different routes, and he took GREAT photos of the group. At some point of the adventure, there were friendly monkeys, which we fed and took great pics with :). I highly recommend this experience to anyone who visits Marrakesh/Morocco.

Great tour saw parts that are off the beaten track. Warning DO NOT eat lunch you will be totally stuffed after this tour you will stop at lots of vendors and stalls to sample food.

Essaouira is definitely worth a day trip - leaving the busy city of Marrakech behind. We enjoyed a great time!

very beautiful little town with its historical center the souks.

Great experience with a friendly and knowledgeable guide.
