- Lahcen, our leader was excellent, incredibly helpful.
I thought the itinerary was very good - although all the really good, Moroccan experiences were at the beginning, particularly in Fez and as we moved to the Sahara. The trip became more touristy as we moved around the country. I did wonder if the trip could be done in reverse - just a thought.
The hotels were all good quality, but the best ones were the ones which had Moroccan furnishings, tiles etc. The large Spanish owned hotels had rather soulless (crowded with tourists) dining rooms. Our group did not like the modern 5 star hotel in Marrakesh, which was a long way from the centre - Explore could consider perhaps a tasteful Moroccan style riad in the medina, as in Fez.
All in all though, a very good holiday.
