review 6 Apr 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Visiting the desert, the wonderful Adobe accommodation nearby, the fantastic locations for sketching and the visit by camel riding off into the sunset in the sand dunes and staying overnight in a Nomad's Tent to watch sunrise.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Please dress warmly if booking for March, as even though the sun shines, it can be quite cold. Take lots of photos - locations for sketching are very inspiring. Absorb the atmosphere.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We stayed in local accommodation. We met Berber people and sometimes shared our food. We didn't leave any plastics or rubbish behind.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I really had a marvellous experience of the desert life, very spontaneous, often stopping to paint buildings, doors, etc. as we passed by. Hamid was a fantastic driver and went out of his way to show us his country. I adored Hassen's Guest House in the desert - very rustic - and it even has a swimming pool! Mary was a wonderful teacher and very patience and tried to get the best out of us. She had given us tasks to do, so it was very helpful as we sketched. I would go again on this holiday.
