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

What a memorable vacation, one I will never forget, a real life experience. My guide Mohamed was absolutely fantastic. He took the time to tell me about the local cultures, showing me some magical places and lovely people. I will tell everybody about responsible travel and the work they do. I would recommend they use them and would highly recommend they use Mohamed as there guide. Many thanks to you and Mohamed for a wonderful vacation. There were too many great days to mention.

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

Many memorable experiences, overnight stay in caves with a Nomad family, interactive drumming sessions with the local hotel staff, rock climbing.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

This trip is not for you if you don't enjoy the many activities on the trip. I went in November and was concerned that it might be very cold in the mountains, but was positively surprised, as our mountain gite had warm showers and even a hammam. As the trip is quite short, you could consider having some extra days at the end to explore either the desert or towns other than Marrakech, e.g. Essaouira by yourself.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes, the tour guide also made sure to explain the responsible travel concept and how it was applied on this trip.

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

It was an excellent trip, with fantastic fellow travelers and an experienced and dedicated tour guide. The locals (especially outside of Marrakech) were very welcoming

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

The bike ride was a challenge, but well worth it for the stunning views. Loved the walk in Dades gorge too, and seeing the eagle on the high atlas walk was a real moment!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Itís good to prepare in advance if you need to get fit for this trip. Have plenty of small change at all times. Tipping is part of the culture in morocco.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes, in many ways. The operator also worked closely with the local guides and hosts to help set themselves up.
