review 7 Jan 2017

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

Visit Chefchaoen (the Blue City) - an artists dream - plus walk to nearby waterfall in mountains. Visit mosaic manufacture place and watch craftsmen at work. Majorelle gardens Marakesh - absolutely stunning.

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

A surprising number of occasions of having to carry our luggage for short but un-enjoyable distances sometimes through busy streets. Lots of steep paths and steps, unsuitable for anyone with walking difficulties (as one member of our group had). Much colder than we imagined - however there was never any need for the sleeping bags we had been told to bring, so these just took up space. Should have brought warmer clothes.

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

Hotels in Casablanca and Marakesh (large and impersonal) were ghastly and unfriendly. Would have much preferred family run guesthouse as in Volubilis. This was absolutely lovely and so welcoming.

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