Very good trip with plenty of variety,from riding in the mountains to camel trek in the desert. Would of liked more cycling in the Atlas Mountains rather than some boring flat Tarmac runs through the desert.the itinerary was organised and quite well run by Mohamid although he could of been a bit more informative on local customs and more info. About where we were. All in all himself and his co guide Khalid did a good job. Highlight for me the decent out of the Atlas Mountains on the last day.

A fabulous way to spend Christmas! Such a beautiful country. A fair amount of time driving between places but worth it to see the contrast of scenery and "real" Morocco.

Great cycling with the best saved till last - the descent from the High Atlas Mountains was stunning in every sense. Our night in the desert was a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Finally, our tour guide was exceptional. The guide and his team were friendly, informative and great fun to be with. I felt safe and looked after. They really made the trip and it was obvious how proud they were of their country.

Tips: It was cold in some of the hotels and at the beginning of some days - lots of warm clothing needed[layers!!]

overall we really enjoyed this tour,personally we would have preferred less time in the mini bus and more time on the bikes.
we particularly enjoyed the desert experience, the food served on this evening was excellent. It was a lovely experience being in the desert for sunrise and sunset.
our guide Mustafa was brilliant he was fun to be with and paid a great deal of attention to safety, any small problems that arose were solved quickly.
The other members of staff the bus drivers and assistant guide were all really friendly and helpful.
The final days cycling in the Atlas mountains was spectacular.
We would have liked a bit more time to explore Marrakesh and wished we had booked an extra night at the end of the trip.

Excellent value. Assistant tour leader Hassan and drivers Aldi and Mohammed were excellent throughout. The tour leader, Ilyas was exceptional throughout. His attention to detail, always with the group's enjoyment in mind, made the trip such a pleasure. Lunch were provided, with agreement first from the group, by one of the drivers. These were excellent value and well worth taking advantage of.

Morocco has so much to offer - good roads, both tarmac and gravel for cycling, dramatic scenery, very tasty food and welcoming people. The first hotel in Marrakech was good and the others better. The camel ride and Berber camp was enjoyable too.

Do bring a plug for hotels. They are invariably missing!

Very exciting holiday. Well organised. Cycling with sightseeing and good food you cannot go wrong. My tip for this holiday do some training before you go.

The tour was as the itinerary stated, so top marks for accuracy.

The tour guide, ilyas, was excellent - funny and informative, organised and diligent, a strong communicator with impeccable manners and a constant smile on his face.

Cycling and seeing a developing country in an interesting country - much fun, though there's a bit of driving involved to get around, so don't neglect to read that part - itinerary is again accurate.

Food: it became very dull to eat the same dishes every day, as each hotel serves their speciality, tagine, and in an effort to keep people from getting sick (I guess), the meat and veg were boiled and boiled and boiled, and then every day to a new hotel, and repeat.
Breakfasts and lunch could have also been more original, with perhaps more options ... but this wasn't supposed to be a culinary tour, and so this is a minor point in the context of a very good way to see Morocco, that was low cost and a lot of fun.

Accommodation: entirely adequate, clean and comfortable but not glamorous.

Tips: I would have preferred more cycling, 2-3x the distance, but I may be alone in this category, and the tour did not under deliver - it did exactly what it said it would, I simply would have preferred more of it.
Bring a bottle of hot sauce or something to spice it up!
(Pack a bottle of spirits from Duty Free for the evenings!)
