review 12 Jul 2016

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

It was gorgeous to be in the Atlas Mountains and witness daily life in the area. Staying in Riad gave us the opportunity to meet local residents and to understand the customs of the Berber people. It was amazing to see all the men going up a nearby hill to pray, marking the end of Ramadan. The food was real Moroccan home cooking and full board was available.

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

At times, the roads can be difficult but if you take your time, it's fine. We hired an SUV. Public transport is available .

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

As we stayed in accommodation owned by a local person, we feel that this benifited local people.

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

The holiday was very enjoyable and different. You very much felt that you were witnessing a way of life which was struggling to preserve itself. They need support from tourism to sustain their livelihoods but not to corrode tradition.
