Question about day trip options

Good day!

We are visiting Marrakech for 5 days in February, and we'd really like to take a day and travel outside the city to the mountains. Suggestions for tours and options would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I know when walk around Marrakech, there are plenty of people advertising day trips. For example, you can always go to the Hotel Ali and get their budget trips (they are groups).

If you want something private, then you should probably find a company and book ahead of time. You can then have a private driver who can show you whatever you want. You could go into the Atlas or over the Essaouira for the day.

Have fun!

Hi,

Your hotel or Riad will have contacts with reliable, insured companies and drivers who could take you on a tour to the mountains for a day. I personally prefer Ouirgane and the Plateau de Kik for a day out as I find Ourika valley very touristy and busy these days.

Once you reach the mountains, which would only take a little more than an hour from Marrakech, you might want to consider leaving your vehicle behind, perhaps hiring an official mountain guide for the day and trekking further in to the mountains. If you follow Shimmin's suggestion of heading to Ouirgane, you would have no problem in organising this once you arrived. It would give you a very contrasting experience of Morocco to your time in Marrakech.

If you take an organized tour, they all go to the very same places which are exceedingly touristy, like Setti Fatma.
