A good whistle stop tour of morocco, highlighting the different sights i.e cities,mountains deserts. It was great spending time in the colourful souks haggling over the prices and getting your bargains. Do not worry about getting lost everyone was very helpful if you looked like you did not know where you were going. The Atlas mountains were spectacular, it was just a shame when we were there it was cloudy. However I had not appreciated the distances involved, we were averaging 5/6 hours on the bus each day that was after sight seeing,refreshment stops etc. Day 3 was particularly long we left at 8am and did not get to Fes till 9pm, by that time the only place to get something to eat nearby was a shop serving snacks like crisps and chocolate. Often we got to the hotels too late to use the facilities e.g pool. Moustapha was excellent on these journeys in trying to keep us entertained with stories, information about local culture, teaching us Arabic, photo stops to stretch our legs. The hotel in Fes was rather disappointing due to it's lack of facilities no pool or terrace to sit out, it would have been nice to have somewhere to chill out and relax after the previous hectic days, especially as it was the only place we stayed 2 nights. The hotel in Merzouga was really nice it was just a shame that when we were there there was a sandstorm. If you do the camel ride I would recommend sunglasses and a scarf, even if it is cloudy as the sand gets everywhere. I would also recommend the lovely walk through the fields to Todra Gorge, if you might be put off by the word hike do not be it is mainly flat and gently. It would have been nice to do a longer walk at Bou Tharar and see more of the Mgoun Gorge, as we arrived at 12.00 and did not go out until 5.00pm. The food and drink cost a bit more than stated in the trip notes, however if you get short of cash there are lots of ATM's. Also the food was not as varied or as spicy, as I thought it would be, prepare for a lot of similar tagines and bread. Moustapha was a very friendly and helpful guide who did everything he could to make sure we had an enjoyable time. One last thing getting out of Marrakech airport was awful, we had a long wait at customs, at least by that time our bags had arrived! Then all bags have to go through a scanner again as you leave the airport and there is only one machine. I am all in favour of airport security however the queue was horrendous . It took me about one and a half hours to get through, it took some people in our group 3, nearly as long as the flight!

The leader Moustafa was excellent. The hotels quite interesting, but the days were a bit too long. One day it was 9.30pm when we finally reached our accommodation, and we were all too tired to eat.

Great trip- full on as advertised, lots of time in minibus but lots to see and plenty of stops. Our leader Moustafa was very friendly,good sense of humour,very knowledgeable about country and culture. Only complaint would be the hotel in Fez- no outdoor space or pool,shame as was the only place we had 2 nights.

An excellent short introduction to Morocco, though all a bit rushed. I knew we'd be travelling a good deal but hadn't realised quite how much. The desert sandstorm is memorable. It seems we should have gone earlier in the year.

We were fortunate to have an outstanding Guide who gave us opportunities to experience the maximum on our trip. Food, culture, people we met, camel ride in Sahara Desert, walks, souks, Todra Gorge, Atlas Mountains were just awesome. Day 2 accommodation at Hotel Ouzoud was very poor, evening meal was too late (9.30pm), little choice & rude waiter service!

This trip was a fast and furious journey through beautiful Morocco. We really covered a lot of ground, perhaps a bit too ambitious in that some days we drove a lot with little time for photo stops, etc. For those with limited holidays coming from Europe it is a great value and itinerary but for those of us in North America I would think taking the longer tour would make more sense or adding a couple of days on either end would make it a more inclusive and fulfilling adventure.
There were really no parts of the tour that I would drop and some that I wish would have been expanded such as time in Mecknes. There were some great little gems such as a walk in the cedar forest and the hikes in the gorges. Accommodations were fair to very good, the occasional lack of hot water and limited breakfast choices being tolerable.
The bus could have been bigger as every seat was filled making it a bit tight. The suggested budget for food in your trip notes was very inaccurate-every meal was at least twice what was listed with many places having only a set meal option. Our guide did often call ahead with our choices making the best use of our time.
Some tips: brace yourself for high pressure sales when shopping in the Medinas; taking photographs of people will be met with either a demand for payment or intolerance so always ask or prepare for fewer images; hotels don't provide shampoo; try the fresh squeezed orange juice at the markets; bring layers as the weather can be unpredictable; stay an extra day or two in Marrakesh to visit some gardens or take a day tour to Imlil to hike in the High Atlas mountains or a day tour to Essouira on the coast.

Great fast paced tour. Lots of variation in geography and temperature. Highlight for me was the camel ride in the Sahara!

A lot was packed into 8 days, with an amazing variety of scenery and experiences. The highlight for me was the time spent in Fes. It was surprisingly cold in the desert and mountains - if going in March, take warmer clothes than the Trip Notes recommend.
