    5.0 - Excellent

    Excellent family trip which we all enjoyed for different reasons. The highlight for the kids was the the camel trek in to the desert and the 'sand surfing' down the dunes. For me it was very special to visit Tijhza village and volunteer for an afternoon and help build the hammam. Overall it's a busy trip but very satisfying and weather is excellent at October half-term - not too hot in the desert.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Volunteering at Tighza was unique and cery enjoyable. Personally I enjoyed the football match with local children at the the village school as a personal highlight!What did you think of your group leader?Abdullah has been leading this trip for many years and he was exceptional. He has children of his own and naturally knows what families are looking for. He also spoke fluent Berber, Arabic, French and English - all of which he used constantly to help us communicate with everyone we met.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Bring good walking shoes / boots as there are laods of opportunities for walking, many of which are extra to what is in the trip Notes. Abdullah's speciality is taking groups on impromptu walks arounds villages, date groves, and towns to give the groups a real feel for how the local people live and work in Morocco.Is there anything else you would like to add?If you are looking for a trip that has winter-sun, loads of variety, camel trekking and sand dunes - this is ideal. If you like to lie by the beach forget it! This is a busy holiday. My son is hyper-active and even he was exhausted! Remember there are a few nights camping in bedouin tents, so it is basic for a few nights but comfort levels increase as the trip progresses, with hotels with pools towards the end. Don't forget almost all accommodation has pools - maybe bring wet-suits for the kids as the pools aren't heated!

    Overall it was a very good holiday. We saw a lot of Morocco, Abdullah, the guide, was excellent, as was our driver (Abdellah!), but was slightly disappointed that our tent experiences were more akin to a campsite at home.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The walk up to and back from Tijhza was great.What did you think of your group leader?Our group leader was excellent. Very informative and inclusive. I think I can speak for all of us to say that he made us all feel at ease.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Watch out for the snake charmers in al Fna square. They think it is OK to invade your privacy by depositing a snake around your neck without asking, but become quite aggitated if you invade their privacy by taking a picture.....in a public place, that may include their snakes!Is there anything else you would like to add?It would have been good if we were told in advance that we were going to be in Morocco dring the Eid festival, which meant that the majority of Marrakech was closed!

    A good mixture of rural and city, camping and hotels, leisurely walks and camel trek.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The first night in the camp, looking at the stars was wonderful.  We were initially disappointed that the camp site was indeed a permanent camp site, rather than sleeping in a camp out in the desert, but the upside was the clean showers and loos!  The walk down from the mountain village through the villages and fields was lovely; interesting, leisurely and an education in how people live their day to day lives in the villages.What did you think of your group leader?Abdellah was informative, personable, more than happy to please and educate and had a great sense of humour.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?This is a busy week, with a fair bit of travelling although the travelling was broken up by stops for photographs, lunch etc.  We don't have young children and I think it would be quite hard work camping in the Bedouin tents with very young children - however, our teenager loved every minute of the holiday.Is there anything else you would like to add?Morocco has fantastic scenery - it's very mountainous, and we never tired of looking at the landscape.  Although it's a busy trip there are quiet times when you can have time to yourself.  We got up around 7.30am every morning and found ourselves struggling to keep awake past 9pm!

    A great 'first adventure' for Harry (7). Good variety of activities and experiences, shared with children his own age.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Ait Benhaddou at sunrise.What did you think of your group leader?Cannot fault Abdellah. Friendly, knowledgable and attentive without being intrusive. Always ensured the children in the party were involved and amused. Great card trick.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Try and add a couple of days in Marrakesh at the end. Despite having visited previously we were glad to have the extra time to explore further. Include a visit to the Jardin Majorelle - get there early, before it's too crowded, and also the Marrakesh Museum. The exhibits were interesting in themselves, and the central courtyard is very special indeed.Is there anything else you would like to add?Drop the Atlas Film Studios visit. The low level valley walk was a delight, and if there had been an opportunity for a further 1/2 day walk we would have appreciated it.Camel sores fully healed.
