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

Visiting Morocco itself - it is an amazing country with so much to offer - amazing landscapes, history, the desert and fertile oasis and the warmth and hospitality of the people!

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

Be ready to eat a lot of tajines!

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

I hope so

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

The vacation was good but I was very disappointed with the food - I had informed the operator about my dietary requirements (vegetarian) and also told the guide as soon as the vacation started and gave him regular reminders. However, the food on offer at the homes we visited and the restaurants we went to was insipid and not tasty at all. On one occasion, we stopped for lunch and there was a carcass of an animal hanging where we were seated. I moved inside by myself and the food on offer was a tomato and onion salad and bread. The guide was aware that I am vegetarian but he did nothing to help find suitable places for me to eat. The accommodation was mainly basic and I understand that the operator likes to support local businesses. Nevertheless, the standards in some of the hotels were very low and the showers didn't work and the toilets were leaking in some of the hotels. For these reasons, it is unlikely that I will travel with this operator again. I paid a decent some of money to have this vacation and I do not feel I got value for the amount I paid.

review 12 Mar 2018

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

There were many, but possibly the camel ride into the desert and activity in the desert camp.

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

Be prepared. We had too many summer clothes. Warm, casual and loose fitting garments with a pair of comfortable walking shoes are essential.

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

Yes, we were frequently reminded of how and where best to support the local communities.

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

A great experience, if not relaxing; but we understood that in order to see and experience so much there would be a lot of traveling. Some accommodation was basic and disappointing, but overall we enjoyed the cultural and friendly trip with very informative guides.
