Small group tour:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modelled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Key to our ethos is to ensure that we are an economic benefit to the communities we visit. By using locally owned hotels and transport, eating in a variety of local restaurants and employing local guides in the Imperial Cities, we spread the economic benefit to as wide a circle as possible and that money stays in country. It is also a great way to get closer to the local culture.

Certain departures (ref DMR) stay in restored and renovated 17th century riads - the traditional merchants houses. These riads are usually found at the heart of the old cities and their popularity means that there is increased interest in preserving the rich architectural heritage of Morocco.

On this tour, we visit the Association for the Disabled in Southern Morocco. This association is only one of two in the whole of Morocco. We support this good cause by purchasing goods crafted by those who learn valuable skills by the Association.

As well as the above, we support a variety of charities and projects worldwide which support vulnerable communities and habitats including Friends of Conservation, Hope Worldwide and Send A Cow. We are also actively engaged with UK travel industry bodies which promote best practice in responsible tourism, such as Tourism Concern, The Travel Foundation and AITO. Our commitment to responsible tourism is not limited to our overseas operation and we have measures to ensure our UK office operates according to our responsible tourism policy. As a company we support Cool Earth. Protecting rainforest is one of the most effective actions to tackle climate breakdown. CoolEarth work with indigenous communities empowering them to conserve their forest; keeping CO2 locked in.

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


Driving up into the High Atlas and stepping out into the snow. Lots more events too that were memorable.

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


A torch is very useful - head variety is what I would recommend. One member of our group ignored the instructions about a sleeping bag, bought blankets with the guide's help and claims to have been as 'warm as toast' for the couple of nights we were in the dormatory. I am not advocating ignoring advice, or taking up a guides time and personally I was pretty cold the first night of the dorm stay. Most of the world does not want your toilet paper down the loo, regardless of what sort of loo it is!


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


Not so sure about this. I felt obliged to get my foot hennaed to get some money over the ladies, (it seemed a bit expensive at 50 Din. I did buy from the Marjana Women's Cooperative Argan oil too. There was not much attention paid to plastic waste re. water etc. There's a lot in this question so it might be better to separate off the issues in future. Not sure how our trip contributed to conservation, although we did visit some out of the way places which presumably would no longer be cared for if it would not for tourists.

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


Excellent - I will certainly investigate this operator's tours in the future.
