Amazing Experience

Marrakech excursions(one day tour from Marrakech) :

Marrakech is Morocco’s most famous tourist destination.

The name conjures up images of spices, souks, deserts, and Riads, an exotic place of bustling markets, ancient walled streets, and ramshackle houses.

It’s an exciting, vibrant and colorful place to visit; a place where you may well be as frustrated at times as you are enthralled, but where every moment is different and life is unique, noisy and seemingly chaotic.

The city is full of history, culture and excellent Moroccan cuisine, where every turn you take opens a world of new shocks and surprises that will keep you transfixed for days.

Beyond the historic walls of Marrakech, this city in the foothills of the high Atlas Mountains is the perfect launching pad to the surrounding area.

From deserts and waterfalls to Berber villages and rocky valleys, there are many day trips to take from Marrakech.

  • One day tour from marrakesh :

(1 Day) - 3 valleys (Ourika, Oukaymden, Asni)

Departure in the morning from Marrakech in a private Day Trip to the Atlas Mountains , heading the OURIKA valley about one hour drive from Marrakech, famous by its waterfalls (if you want to visit this waterfalls you have to walk for about 1H30 min for going and coming back with a mountain guide), you will enjoy different landscapes and get spectacular views as far as the eye can see, this is also where you will visit the Berber women extracting the ARGAN oil (the unique Moroccan oil), you continue through the second valley which is OUKAIMDEN valley, and taking a secluded mountain road route standing at 1800 meters above sea level, you will pass through traditional Berber villages built from adobe and stones, and to discover the authentic life of Berber people. After that you will reach the third valley ASNI, famous by its fruit trees (Apples, walnut, almonds, peaches...), this is where you can enjoy the sight of the snowy summits of the High Atlas Mountains, The thrilling tour concludes with a drive back to Marrakech, arriving at approximately 5:00 or 6:00pm.

(1 day) - Ouzoud waterfalls

The Ouzoud Falls are an incredibly impressive set of waterfalls that plunge from high cliffs far down into a huge basin. The multi-layered waterfall cascades from a maximum height of 110-meters, and in an otherwise arid landscape, the location is a veritable oasis in the mountains, where lush, green vegetation is found amongst the rocky confines of this canyon. The area is famous for its olive trees; after hiking to the falls, you can relax in the shade of these trees while you feel the cooling breeze of the crashing waterfall filling the air with refreshing sprays of water. If you are really overheated, you can even swim in the Al Abid River which the falls plunge straight into. It’s a glorious day trip from Marrakech, and one not to be missed.

(1 Day) - Essaouira (Mogador)

Essaouira is a vibrant port city found on the Atlantic coastline of Morocco. It’s a welcome escape from the desert and the dry climate of Marrakech, and a trip here makes for a long but rewarding day trip. Enjoy the beautiful sea breezes along the coast, as well as the colorful culture and buildings of the city. The Medina is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it’s begging to be explored, while the narrow maze of alleys and souks are as quintessentially Moroccan as you can get.

(1 Day) - Agadir

Agadir is another coastal Moroccan city that’s found a good three-hour drive from Marrakech. The city is making a name for itself in tourist circles as a sun-drenched, windswept and relaxed place to visit. There is an ever-growing number of resorts taking advantage of the beautiful beaches and coastline, while the city itself is an interesting example of modern Moroccan culture and life – it’s large enough to easily escape the tourist trail and discover something new.

(1 Day) - Casablanca

Casablanca is the only other city that could rival Marrakech in terms of international fame. The name Casablanca has gone down in history, thanks to the movie and the romantic connotations associated with it. The reality is probably very different to what you might expect, and it’s a good thing to only make a day trip to the city – it is a sprawling, urban mass. It’s worth the journey to visit the biggest mosque in Africa ,see this famous place for what it really is, to walk through the old streets and the new and experience an inseparable piece of Moroccan history.

(1 Day) - Ourika valley

The beautiful Ourika Valley is found 50-kilometers to the south of Marrakech in the cool shadows of the Atlas Mountains. The valley is full of small local villages that have stood here for centuries, while the cool climate makes it a lush and verdant place to explore, particularly during the hot summer months when Marrakech can become scorching. There are waterfalls, a mountain backdrop, and epic scenery wherever you turn.

(1 Day) - Imlil

Imlil is a local Berber village that’s found high in the Atlas Mountains. Standing at 1800-meters, it’s set in spectacular surroundings. Many visitors will use Imlil as a base for getting even further into the mountains on multi-day treks, including to the summit of Mount Toubkal, the highest peak in the range (4500m). But it’s perfectly fine to simply explore here for the day, see the way the Berbers have lived there and adapted their lifestyle to the mountains and even make a few small hikes into the surrounding area.

(1 Day) - Aït Benhaddou - Ouarzazate

Ait Benhaddou is a marvelous UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s found on the outskirts of the Sahara Desert. It’s an ancient, fortified town that has stood guarding the trade routes through the desert for centuries. Today, the town is more famous for the huge number of movies that have been filmed here. You will most likely recognize the walls, towers, and streets from at least one film that you have seen. Despite its now touristy, star-studded fame, the town is still an incredible and distinct example of Moroccan architecture and history and it’s well worth the dusty three-hour drive from Marrakech to see. Further, along the road, to the south of Ait Benhaddou, can be found the fortified town of Ouarzazate. Like its neighbor, Ouarzazate is also used as a filming location by many studios and has featured in countless historical epics and desert-based movies. This is really where the Sahara begins too – after the high plateau that the town is built upon disappears to the south, the sandy dunes of the desert truly begin.
