Thank you very much for your review Marij and we are delighted to read that you would rate your trip as 'Superb' overall. Your advice for other travellers was also spot-on. Allowing yourself to go with the flow of the country, culture and trip allows you to get the most out of your travel. We were however concerned to read that you did not 'really' feel that your trip ''benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation.'' In terms of benefitting local people and supporting conservation we are proud to be working with the Ait Ouhem Association for Development, a local, community-led organisation in the Atlas Mountains. For every Moroccan tour booked we donate £5 per passenger to help the Association achieve its goals of: 1. Building a dispensary in the village to provide people with at least emergency first aid medical supplies. (The nearest hospital is 70 km away). 2. To provide houses with tap water. 3. Encouraging students of the village to continue their studies through buying necessary materials such as bags, books, books, pens. 4. To plant different trees in the mountains all around the village to stop or at least limit erosion. 5. Creating a textile cooperative for women so that they can earn a living that is otherwise not available to them. Our trips are also run by local Tour Leaders; we stay in small locally run hotels (not big international chains) and we eat in small locally run restaurants. All of these factors help to create local employment and bring money directly into the local economy-not to big multi-nationals. Certain activities such as the camel trek -one of your most memorable parts of the trip-help to support people living a more traditional way of life, who often find it difficult to earn a regular income. It is maybe difficult during your trip to appreciate the economic importance of your presence. We hope this impact will continue by you recommending Morocco to others as a travel destination. Thank you again for taking the time to complete this review and we hope that you might choose to travel with us again in the future.

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

Blue and white Chefchaouen, berber villages, camel trek, tanneries in Fes, Volubilis and a lot of couscous and tajines.

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

It is a lot of travelling. So if you are looking for a very relaxing or private holiday, this is not the one. But if you are looking for a great trip with a lot to see and experience, learn and eat, go for it.

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

Yes. We used local hotels, local guides and local restaurants. But we could do more in cleaning Morocco from all plastic bags.

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

It was very good. Nice group, great tour leader and excellent itinerary.
