“A huge thank you to Authentic Morocco for making our trip so sensational! We went away expecting a holiday; to see a few sights and laugh a little, but got one of the best experiences of our lives. It was so much better than anything we could have arranged ourselves. Our guide was brilliant, he showed us what life was really like for the Berber people and it was fascinating. We were really spellbound by the desert and had so much fun on our camels. Morocco really gets under your skin – we all agree that we left a piece of ourselves there and can’t wait to go back with Authentic Morocco to sleep under the stars for longer!”
"The first belly dance holiday I ran in Morocco, in the desert, turned out to be more magical than I would have imagined. Every possible want or need that we had was taken care of. The food was consistently delicious and we had the benefit of interacting with local Berbers and their families, rather than simply staring out of a bus window for hours on end. There was also a real emphasis placed on each participant fulfilling her desert fantasy, whether by serving us dinner under the stars, inviting local musicians to perform or camel trekking to watch the sun set over the dunes. At the end of the holiday we all felt we had to return to this enchanting place."
“In October 2008 the holiday company Authentic Morocco provided a holiday for nine of our young people to enable them to spend ten days in Morocco. The nine young people involved live in five different children’s homes and their ages ranged from 13 to 17 years of age. The majority of them had very limited travel experience, some never having left Norfolk before, and were hugely excited by the prospect of the trip. The young people were accompanied by seven members of staff. The trip provided an opportunity of a lifetime and broadened the horizons of both the young people and the staff."
"Thank you on behalf of all my students at the University of Derby, Buxton, for the excellent trip. The tour went extremely well, with all the team summiting. Abdulla was an amazing co-ordinator and very helpful with all aspects of the trek, the porters and guide we had were excellent and the team enjoyed their company and learnt a lot from them. The food was also amazing. The trek was well run and we had no complaints."

"Dear Liz, just to say that the group had a very enjoyable trip and were most complimentary about Abdoullah who, they say, was an excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable. Unbelievably the highlight was travelling from Marrakech into the Atlas Mountains to a remote village only to discover that they had a TV to watch the rugby on …. most impressive!! And finally, a big thank you to you for arranging what was a truly unforgettable experience for them."
"Authentic Morocco were the natural guides, for our expedition in Morocco, who suggested key locations and expert advice. The Erg Chigaga dune area offered rich photographic opportunities to film amazing desert scenery and genuine nomadic tribes. I'm very pleased to have chosen Authentic Morocco to assist us in our visit."

"I run photographic trips to Morocco for Light and Land and Liz is invaluable to me. At the planning stage her knowledge of the country enables us to work out an itinerary that is both rewarding and achievable and, during the trips, her contacts and enthusiasm for the country mean that I can concentrate on the group knowing that our needs will be well looked after, any problems quickly resolved and, what is more, there is someone to provide the group members with insight and access to the rich and diverse culture of the Berbers."

"I have worked with Liz over many years and direct groups and individuals to her if I feel that her services are more suitable than ours. Her attention to detail and her customer handling skills are excellent; I have never heard a bad word about her from any past customers, only words of thanks and praise. We will continue working with Liz where and when the need requires; she is easy to work with, thoughtful and enthusiastic in her work and her passion for Morocco. If I can be of further help or assistance please do not hesitate to contact me."
