“Enjoyable trip but I would suggest that the travellers are given more opportunity to explore on their own and eat out in normal Moroccan places, not just places for tourists.”

“This is a very interesting trip and I was glad that I was able to do this in the Winter months during the week as the Abandoned city really was abandoned. The added touch of eating in the canteen and meeting a self settler were classic interesting Explore extras. ”
