I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Excellent. Both Douar Samra and Riad Samsara are wonderful places to stay. We were looked after and the food deserves a special mention. The arrival at Douar Samra in the evening to discover our candle lit room was magical. (more)evin dilber
We had the most wonderful time at douar samra, and the trekking was awesome. The hotel food is grown on site and cooked deliciously! (more)Martin Ross

We loved the Sahara Desert, the High Atlas Mountains, the zest of Marrakesh city, and our cooking class. Our children loved the sand boarding, decorating pottery with henna, the music and jokes around the campfire and the unique opportunity to actually collect fossils from a hill range.
Train journey accross Morocco, visit to Volubilis Roman ruins, lunch with Berber family in Ouirgane.
Don't eat the salad. Do not bother with a guide in Fez; they are simply taking you on a heavily overpriced shopping trip. The Lonely Planet Guide is excellent, spot on in all instances for food, DIY tours and really good maps.
