“This tour, in a very comfortable air-conditioned bus, was very nice. It gave us a chance to see a part of Morocco during our short trip that we would not have seen otherwise. I was a little disappointed in the tour guide; on previous City Discovery tours, the guides have been knowledgeable and personable, providing information about the scenery we passed. ...Heather M., United States – See more reviews
What To Expect
Explore the charming Ourika valley nestled high in the Atlas Mountains. Located south of Marrakech, the road traveled to get there crosses the plain of Haouz for 30 miles and turn towards Aghmat.
At Aghmat discover an abandoned village. All that remains is the original construction of Moatamid Ben-Abbad's mausoleum, a prince and Andalusian poet captured during the conquest of Seville in 109.
After returning to the main road, we will travel approximately 1.8 miles further south to a trail that leads to "douar" (village) of Ourika. The lively souk here really comes alive on Mondays!
The Ourika River pierces the foothills of the Atlas making the valley green with orchards and terraced crops. This beautiful valley is also punctuated by a string of small douar homes. Ourika's atmosphere and unique decor is sure to impress!
