Magic Morocco
5 - Excellent
“A fantastic introduction to this beautiful country. You pack a huge amount into a short space of time and I left feeling that I wanted to come back and see more. From camel-trekking through a sandstorm to drinking mint tea in our guide's family home, this trip was full of memorable experiences. The people of Morocco were so friendly and welcoming and lots of fun. The scenery was spectacular, especially up in the mountains. I think the view from the gite might be a little slice of heaven!”
Whirlwind Tour!!
4 - Very Good
“This trip offers an interesting overview as to what Morocco has to offer. It gives the visitor a brief but rewarding experience of the desert region to the south, the High Atlas region and a glimpse of city life in Marrakech. With this aim in mind I think it succeeds. You should be prepared for some long drives, the longest being around six hours. However these are broken up by lunch breaks, short stops at scenic locations and visits to historical sites which are quite interesting. The food and lodgings on this trip exceeded my expectations, the standard was much higher than expected. I would recommend this trip for those who want an introduction to Morocco.”
