"No Limit Tours" has chosen a set of Morocco day trips to enjoy a beautiful day excursion from Marrakech and escape the heat and noise of big cities. A rich selection of places to visit with historical and cultural explanations. The best way to spend hot days of Moroccan summer is to take off in the morning and head to one of the wonderful vibrant and cool valleys: Ourika, Ouzoud waterfalls, Asni & Ouirgane and Setti fatma waterfalls, enjoy the green scenery and the fresh air, have a nice lunch out in the open, take lots of beautiful photos, have some mint tea in the afternoon and get back to Marrakech in the late evening when the ocre city is cooler.
In the middle of rocky mountains, the Ourika Valley draws visitors with a welcoming atmosphere of tiny villages,an exotic journey to the heart of the Berber culture. We will take you on one of the most breathtaking drives on earth. The excursion to Ourika valley is very popular because it is not far from Marrakech, and it offers a nice escape from the heat of Marrakech during summer days, so we advise our dear clients to avoid choosing week-end days for this excursion, because it is usually full with local tourists coming from all over the region of Marrakech to have a good time with their families or friends...
