Reviews for Holiday in Morocco, Imperial cities & deserts
Christina Wilks review 28 Jan 2014
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?Driving up into the High Atlas and stepping out into the snow. Lots more events too that were memorable.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?A torch is very useful - head variety is what I would recommend. One member of our group ignored the instructions about a sleeping bag, bought blankets with the guide's help and claims to have been as 'warm as toast' for the couple of nights we were in the dormatory. I am not advocating ignoring advice, or taking up a guides time and personally I was pretty cold the first night of the dorm stay. Most of the world does not want your toilet paper down the loo, regardless of what sort of loo it is!
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?Not so sure about this. I felt obliged to get my foot hennaed to get some money over the ladies, (it seemed a bit expensive at 50 Din. I did buy from the Marjana Women's Cooperative Argan oil too. There was not much attention paid to plastic waste re. water etc. There's a lot in this question so it might be better to separate off the issues in future. Not sure how our trip contributed to conservation, although we did visit some out of the way places which presumably would no longer be cared for if it would not for tourists.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?Excellent - I will certainly investigate this operator's tours in the future.
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
