we were picked up and transfered to ouzoud by driver Said. He was very knowledgable and funny. We had a great time and met also other travelers. We stopped once for going to the falls and back. The waterfalls are quite touristy and the park is not really immense but It's quite a refreshment away from the heat of Marrakech. The athmosphere is vibrant and refreshing. we had a meal for 100 dirham with entry, salad, tajine and fruit. mint tea and 0.5l water included. after that we went to watch and feed monkeys.

The host and the rest of the team were very accommodating, although the activity ended beyond the set time but still it was worth every penny !

It was a dun and amazing experience would definitely so it again The ride was smooth relaxing and romantic

Highly recommend! The food was delicious, the service excellent and the show after the dinner unique
