    I went on the South Moroccan Discovery tour in June through Intrepid with their Amazing guide Kalid Lamlih. The trip had the perfect combination of free time and adventure sightseeing every day. There was a lot of driving, but we saw so much of the country; from cities over the mountains to the desert as well as the ocean with stops at every ancient city in-between. Kalid broke up some of the driving time sharing his own stories of growing up in the mountains and his journey growing up in Morocco.

    Previously being independent travellers, this was our first organised tour and it surpassed our expectations. It was a varied programme and was efficiently organised to make best use of the time, yet give us a wide range of experiences. It was a schedule easy to manage and allowed for some free time as well. Best of all was the excellent leadership of our guide, Hicham, who was generous with his patience, care and explanations. His knowledge and passion for his homeland was outstanding and left us with a new understanding and appreciation about the culture and history of Morocco.

    I highly recommend this tour. Every day we saw something completely new, in many places off the beaten path - desert dunes, mountains, cities, villages. Every stop we made was worthwhile. The driving was fine - our van was comfortable. Accommodations were excellent, including a colorful gite in the Atlas mountains, a palatial riad, and luxury tents in the Sahara. Our guide, Rachid, was friendly, helpful, and easygoing. He went out of his way to ensure everyone was comfortable and happy. After the trip, I went traveling on my own to a few cities in the north, but this was a great introduction to Morocco.

    The tour exceeded my expectations. Morocco in general and the locations of this tour were simply amazing. The group was superb and that made the trip special. All the people we cane across, including the tour guide and the van driver, were helpful and friendly. For e.g. the night we camped in the desert, the staff joined us at the bon fire and played Moroccon drums and sangs songs. It was an amazing night. The only downside I found is that the places like the spice and Argan oil exhibition where we were taken were much more expensive than the market. We didn't know this because we hadn't explored the market yet. Finding the same (or similar - we coudnt tell any difference) stuff cheaper in the market left us feeling dissapointed.

    Our South Morocco tour was everything I hoped for. I learned and saw many new things, I enjoyed the company of lively and warm companions and I made unforgettable memories of remote Bedouin villages and sleeping under the Sahara stars. Our guide was smart, knowledgeable, skilled at bringing our diverse group together and a fellow traveller.

    We covered a lot of ground in a short period of time, which meant LONG days on the road. We'd often get to our destination very late,not allowing too much time to explore. Morning starts were often early, as early as 3am(Sahara day) and as late as 9am. Our guide,Abdala, was great! He was wry helpful and very informative about everything. Our driver hamid was great too... I think that I didn't love this tour, not because of the guide, it was mostly the itenirary--- I underestimated the amount of time we'd spend on the road. Aside from that, everything eas great; the guides, the places we stayed and the food.

    This trip is A+ ! It has everything from cityscapes to mountains to deserts to coast! South Morocco is such a colorful place. I loved everything about this trip especially the itinerary and accommodations. Get ready for some awe-inspiring sights when camping in the Sahara - the stars are unbelievable! If you're looking for a good bargain, shop in Essaouira!

    This was my first Intrepid Tour and it was Awesome! Our leader was amazing, he worked as a guide for 20 years, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. The accommodations were fun, clean and while not always fancy were good for the money (when considering it was all part of a package). Some were a bit small but it gave ups some fun stories. As someone how is normally a solo traveler it was really awesome to do a tour. Normally I spend months planning my trip, (and I sort of did this with this one too), but the reality was I didn't need to. Everything was managed by Intrepid, our leader was great, our itinerary was great and we had a blast. Considering I don't have nearly as much time as I did in my twenties to plan out my trips and travel (I now have about two weeks verse the two months I used to have) I will definitely use Intrepid in the future! Another great thing about Intrepid is how they give back to the communities. We were able to visit a center that Intrepid has been supporting for over 12 years that helps people who have various forms of disabilities which was very cool! It's hard to come up with a best part, but I think it was probably the food, the Sarah (camels and dunes) and Essaouira. Great trip and now I want to go to the North of Morocco! I'll definitely travel with Intrepid again!
