Wonderful adventure! A definite must-do to experience the Berber lifestyle at the foot of the breathtaking Atlas mountains. Furthermore, Both driver and guide were very knowledgeable and friendly, Would definitely recommend for adults only as there is quite a bit of mountainous trekking to reach the various waterfalls. So, wear comfy footwear and clothes. In addition to that, a full day out at a very reasonable and affordable price, excellent value for money.
