Reviews for Railway tour of Morocco


review 29 Nov 2017

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

For us, it was probably being able to stay in the sort of places that brought us into immediate contact with genuine Moroccans! Also the friendliness of the people and experiencing the diametric contrast in culture was great.

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

Obviously the basics like remembering to take your own paracetamol, ammonium(or whatever you use) etc. However I think a main tip whilst you are there .... you will be warned about those who will try to 'fleece' you, take you places and charge for it, etc, BUT - we encountered many who were just wanting to say hello, point us somewhere, steer us clear of a donkey and cart etc. So do not assume that everyone who approaches you is doing so with evil intent! Just be wise. Also, learning a few basic words of Arabic helps things along. If you need a special diet, be very clear about that. For GF people, I would suggest taking your own bread or bread substitute.

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

Hopefully, yes. Our guides were local, the Riads (like a small guesthouse) where we stayed were locally run and staffed. We tended to shop away from any major shopping areas. You get used to bargaining for things and must appreciate that it is part of the culture there.

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

Simply as a really good experience. There were some blips, but these were dealt with helpfully.
