Reviews for Exciting family holiday in Morocco


review 22 Apr 2015

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

Train journey accross Morocco, visit to Volubilis Roman ruins, lunch with Berber family in Ouirgane.

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

Don't eat the salad. Do not bother with a guide in Fez; they are simply taking you on a heavily overpriced shopping trip. The Lonely Planet Guide is excellent, spot on in all instances for food, DIY tours and really good maps. Do your shopping in Marrakesh airport on the way home; they sell all the same stuff at the same prices. Take earplugs (5.30 muezzin every day). Expect a stomach upset, and rejoice if you don't get it.

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

Local people in Ouirgane (guide and his family) were paid direct by us, and I'm sure that money will have made a difference. Taking the train across the country was much better than a private taxi in many ways. Other than that, not really. Morrocco is heaving with tourists on the same well worn paths.

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

Unforgettable. The children will always remember it as a real adventure, and they will have the sights and sounds of Morocco in their minds for a long time.
