I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
All scenery was superb, summit days being special and rewarding. But the memorable part will be the excellency of our guide Mohammed and his team, and the contact with the Berber way of life. (more)Otto Pereira
The most memorable part of our vacation was walking through the villages and the contact with Barber people. The scenery was also fantastic.
The most memorable part of the vacation was climbing up to Mount Toubkal, the highest point in North Africa at 9.30am as the sun rose and having spectacular views for miles of the plains of Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains in all directions. (more)Amanda Dudman
Absolutely brilliant...The hospitality and friendliness of the staff at Kasbah du Toukbal. The stunning views from the dining room. The amazing lunches high on the mountains and relaxing on a mattress after lunch before continuing the trek. Great guide and a schedule tailored completely to our needs. We were looked after so well.

Reaching the peak of Mount Toubka, of course! But equally the lovely new friendships I have made from a great group of people to travel and climb with and the absolutely stunning and spectacular scenery of the High Atlas Mountains.

bring a camera that can take good photos - the scenery is stunning.
