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

Cycling down the Atlas Mountain road, very exhilarating.

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

This is more than a cycling holiday, it is a chance to see parts of Morocco not seen by most travellers. You have to be realistic and not expect top accommodation and food.

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

Explore employed (or contracted) Moroccan staff to run and support the holiday. There was limited opportunity to support local shops and restaurants, apart from those that we were guided to. We made an effort to reduce plastic waste by clubbing together to buy large containers of mineral water.

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

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

review 13 Apr 2012

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

Probably the last day's cycling.

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

Be prepared for surprisingly cold weather, specially at night, and rain.

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

I think it probably did benefit local people. I doubt it reduced environmental impact given the 4 flights to get to and from Marrakech from London, and the amount of travel by vehicle that is covered in the trip.

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

On the whole, very enjoyable.

Holiday Reviews

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.
