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

Everything was amazing and we really enjoyed the night in the desert camp and the camel ride

Take a plug for the sinks! Other than that you have everything you need. Also be aware that alcohol is not available in many of the hotels. It was fine though as my liver needed a rest.

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

Yes as we used local guides and restaurants and visited local co-operatives

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

Fabulous

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

Ifran was a huge surprise and the camel ride through the dunes to the Berber camp was amazing.

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

Be prepared for long road trips.

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

Most definitely. Tourism is a huge part of the Moroccan economy and the local people depend on it. They are also very aware of the environment so no plastic bags are used. We stayed a couple of nights in guesthouses, which was ineteresting and helped us interact with local people more closely.

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

The itinerary was excellent but some more time in Casablanca would have been nice. Morocco is beautiful with varied scenery and we managed to get a taste of almost everything it has to offer. The local people are the most welcoming I have ever met. One of our very best holidays ever! Our guide, Kamal, was fantastic.

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

Visiting Gallipoli, as a part Aussie, it was good to see it all after having taught it in classes for so long

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

Took my water bottle with me, but not needed, although not environmentally ideal, we were given bottled water wherever we went. Be ready for sales pitch visits, on Rugs, Pottery, Leather and Jewellery, OK if you like that sort of thing! But i'd rather see the sights.

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

As above, all the visits to local goods would help them, just not for me bottled water not ideal, but not sure what other options, no conservation issues.

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

8/10 really nice tour, great guide, shame there was only 3 of us, maybe more sights and less sell for me though

Fairly good

review 8 Nov 2017

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

Camel riding in the Sahara.

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

Take a side trip to Essouira and stay the night. Don't give in to pressure to buy at the various shops you are taken to.

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

We tipped generously as it is such a poor country. We also didn't over haggle.

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

The tour covered all the places we wished to see and provided a good insight into life in Morocco. We enjoyed being a small group (there were 6 of us) as this gave us more control over what we wanted to do. The accommodation was good and the guides were very good. Our driver was helpful and the transport was comfortable.

review 7 Oct 2014

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

We found nearly all aspects of the holiday excellent - from the organisation of the trip, the excellence of the guide and driver for whom nothing was too much trouble. The wealth of things that we saw and the various modes of transport that we used were excellent, which we would not have seen travelling alone. The trip was made even better by being a small group of six, with various ages and nationalities but all of one mind to enjoy the trip to the full Would recommend this to anyone

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

This is not really a trip for the disabled or those with walking difficulties. A lot of the places that you visit are sometimes somewhat difficult to access and some of the visits are of fairly long duration in quite hot conditions.

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

I am sure that the local people benefited from our visit through putting money into the local economy through the purchase of meals and goods As to reducing environmental impacts or conservation , who knows!!

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

Excellent with one or two minor hitches in respect of accommodation standards
