Is this a decent tour?

Hi, We have seen this day tour to the Atlas Mountains and was wondering if it is worth the money?

£45 per person for the day:

Many thanks,

Hi,

It is expensive, Ourika valley is terribly touristy these days (Ouirgane is nicer in my opinion), you don't need a 4WD to do this, you could hire a grand taxi for up to 4 people for around 600 Dirhams for the day trip. Your hotel or riad in Marrakech will be in contact with reliable, insured drivers so maybe ask them first.

That's a good suggestion from Shimmin. Having looked at the company's proposed itinerary, I see that you would be back at your hotel by 16.30. Of course, you might well want to be out of the mountains before nightfall but they seem to be offering you little more than half a day's excursion for your money.

I love going into the Ourika Valley to Setti Fatima, agree with Shimmin that it is quite touristy but the drive is very scenic.

The Ouirgane valley is more authentic and a days hiking around Imlil is a nice day out.

If there are 2 (or more of you), then either get the grand taxi (600DH) or hire a private driver for the day (in a 7 seater minibus for around 900DH).
