Off the Beaten Track

Off the Beaten TrackWe thought we would let you know just how well our tour of Morocco went.

When we were planning our trip you were very patient when we dithered so much about the route we wanted to take, your advice was invaluable.

Once we arrived in Marrakech everything worked like clockwork. The guided tour you arranged on the first day was great. The guide was very friendly and got the right balance between cultural visits to amazing buildings and everyday shopping for a picnic lunch!

Mohamed, our driver for the week’s tour was always very punctual and could not have been more helpful. He looked after us all extremely well throughout the tour and was a very safe driver, never taking risks and he coped extremely well with all types of situations on the road. It was also wonderful to have someone with us who spoke Arabic, Berber, French and English and could act as our interpreter, enabling us to talk to people we would otherwise have been unable to communicate with. We feel we got a much better understanding of Morocco as a result.

It was particularly good to be able to get off the beaten track and see parts of the country that so few tourists reach. The landscape was truly amazing, much more spectacular than we had imagined. As you know we were particularly keen to meet a nomad family and as ex-teachers to visit a school and these visits were fitted into our trip seemingly effortlessly. I’d really recommend that other tourists stuff the small spaces in their suitcases with hand or face cream for the nomad women who lead such a hard life or with pens or pencils for the very poor mountain schools.

Everyone we met was friendly, helpful and hospitable and we felt completely safe. We have spent quite a lot of time travelling in Central America and you have to be very careful all the time to avoid your personal possessions being stolen or worse, whereas in Morocco we felt safe at all times of the day or night, including in Marrakech – much safer than in London! We have recommended your organisation to others, and wish your business every success”
