Reviews for Morocco budget holiday, desert safari


review 23 Oct 2022

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

Difficult to say as so much was excellent. Probably the Sahara followed closely by Todra Gorge and Ait Ben Haddou.

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

1. Based on the provided packing list we took too much and also stuff that was just not needed. Have also given this feedback to the tour operator directly - they could customise the packing list a bit for this tour which has just one night in the Sahara - e.g. we did not need sleeping bags or head torches. 2. Be prepared for a lot of driving - in 4.5 days - between 4-6 hours per day - with lots of lovely stops. We don't have a car ourselves and are not used to that much driving. 3. It was a teen tour... and I was travelling alone with my son. Since no one else had booked we in effect had a private tour - which definitely had its benefits. At the same time, it might have been good to have known that in advance. It possibly would've been nice for us to be with others, though we were very good travel companions. If meeting, and being with others on the tour is important to you - perhaps ask whether other teen families have signed up already.

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

Yes. Whilst the places visited are on a tourist trail e.g Todra Gorge, Sahara and Ait Ben Haddou in those places we stayed/ate in lovely local hotels. Also, we visited women's cooperatives that others did not e.g. for carpet weaving and for Berber textiles/clothes. I only know this as a friend of mine happened to be there at the same time and went to the same places and did not experience this aspect.

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

Great experience of Morocco. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
