The views were stunning, the snow-covered Atlas Mountains in the background. The waterfall hike was strenuous but worthwhile. Mohamed, our fantastic guide, was hospitable, considerate, and knowledgeable. The traditional Berber lunch in a local family's home was wonderful. Overall, I heartily recommend this vacation.
