review 6 Jan 2015

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

The visit to Kasbah Ait Benhaddou.

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

Don't underestimate how chilly the hotels can be - without any heating, the rooms get very cold during the evening. The food can get very repetitive, especially for vegetarians - you might want to bring something to liven it up, like Marmite. You will spend a lot of time on the minibus with some very long days traveling, so you may want to bring music, podcasts, books, etc.

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

Very difficult to tell.

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

Generally very enjoyable. We saw some fascinating historic sites, and some wonderful scenery. However, our guide tended to rush us from the sites rather too fast, and there was definitely too much hanging around in shops getting the heavy sell.

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

Going off the beaten track. The amazing tour guide Jerry who is a credit to the tour operator

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

This was a moderately challenging trek but most of us found it very hard. Would be helpful if the tour operator gave a clue about what this description meant (eg being able to use a step machine at speed for several hours)

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

Definitely

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

I would use this tour operator again and recommend it

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

The camel ride into & out of the desert - not knowing whether I would survive the lurches down over the top of the dunes!

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

If you for eg need to follow a particular diet (I need to eat high fibre foods) to make sure to buy enough in the supermarket in Fes at the start of the vacation, as the items may not be available elsewhere until you reach Marakech.

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

Yes.

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

I enjoyed it, but it wouldn't be top of the list.

review 10 Jan 2013

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

Spending the evening and night in the desert. It was so peaceful and quiet.

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

Pack lots of layers. It gets colder than England in winter at night. Instead of buying bottled water, use water purification tablets instead. We did and had no stomach bug issues. Do leave the group and go do your own thing once in a while.

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

In a lot of ways, yes. I spent new year day with the children at the local school (school is supported by the operator.) I was glad not to see lots of tourist rubbish strewn about especially in the desert

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

Very good! It would have been fantastic if we had some spare seats on the minibus!
