    Immensely glad I took this trip. A good escape from cold,grey UK.the walking was decent and just challenging enough to make you feel you had earned the wonderful food we were served every day. A wonderful experience off the usual tourist track,giving an insight into the kindness of the Berber people.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Being so in the wild that my alarm clock was a donkey!and feeling I was walking through a geology textbook..awesome.What did you think of your group leader?Abdellahh - leadership was faultless and totally professional.He had intimate knowledge of the mountains and a wonderful sense of humour.he was kind and considerate.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Weather can range from very cold to warm and sunny,be prepared and don't forget your sun cream... I was really anxious about wild camping toilet arrangements!! But managed fine,and if I can,anyone can ,I promise..Is there anything else you would like to add?Do try a hammam,authentic,not tourist,it will clean places you didn't know were dirty!

    Just generally a great trip.  Well organised, well lead and not a single hassle.  Even when the weather didn't play its part there wasn't a hassle.  The Anti-Atlas is a great place for escaping the world, marvelling at the surroundings and enjoying the company of like-minded people.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Not sure there was a particularly "inspirational" moment but a lot of shared laughs and many memories to keep you laughing. What did you think of your group leader?Awesome! Abdullah, great guy who was very knowledgable and knew the location very well.  When the weather didn't allow us to follow the days planned route he came up with a solution very quickly that was almost better than the original.  His team worked well with him and kept us comfortable and VERY well fed.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?A great escape from the dreary of European winter.  Go prepared for all weather from very cold to warm sunshine.  It is definitely a walkers holiday so be aware of the grading and your fitness level.  Nothing extremely tough, just right for an active holiday.Don't forget a lighter!Is there anything else you would like to add?The changes to the itinerary and the way in which the holiday is run are fantastic with the use of mules making it a real escape from reality.  The locals are incredibly hospitable and it is nice to see them proud of their heritage and culture.

    A great week - was challenging without being tough and felt away from typical tourist sites. Despite a freak snow shower it was managed brilliantly, with a re-route organised and accommodation arranged in a village for one night. Great group and a fantastic guide - Abdulleh. I really felt like everything was done to just allow us to enjoy the walking, scenery... and amazing food! Exodus have recently changed the route slightly to use better campsites and I think this is a good idea - the campsites where all fantastic and in beautiful locations.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?It's hard to pick one... the re-route walk on the day of the snow was pretty special because we saw all range of weahter and it was a long day so getting to the village at the end was a real relief. Once the sun came out the colours and views became clearer and richer and it really felt like we had earned it! We went to Fatima's for tea (in one of the local villages) which was really interesting. I also did the traditional hammam in Tarroudant at the end which is one of the most authentic experiences I have had.What did you think of your group leader?Abdulleh was amazing. He had the perfect balance of being funny, informative and in control. I felt like we were in really safe hands with someone who knew the moutains like the back of his hand. This was particulaly noticeable on the day we had to re-route!Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Bring warm clothes for the evenings and water purification tablets as you can't buy water for most of the week. Also bring swim stuff for the (cold!) springs in the last campsite.Is there anything else you would like to add?This was a fantastic week, with a great group of people and expertly managed by Exodus.

    An excellent trip offering the chance to see a side of Morocco little visited by tourists.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The chance to see how Moroccans lived away from the tourist routes and the friendliness they showed. The chance to take tea in the villagers houses showed this to the full.What did you think of your group leader?Lachan was an excellent guide who took the trek at a pace suitable to all the group. He was very engaging with a great sense of humour.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Make sure you have good boots with good ankle support as the terrain is very rocky on trek and poles help a good deal on the descents.Is there anything else you would like to add?The supporting mule staff were excellent and the food on trek was great

    This was a challenging walk in the most extraordinary terrain.  It was beautiful in the extreme, made even more beautiful by the emptiness and tranquillity of the surroundings.  No tourists other than ourselves, and uplifting contact with the friendly and hospitable locals when we met them. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Probably the stunning night sky shimmering with a myriad of lights,completely unavailable to us in this form in England.  The trip was worth it for this alone.What did you think of your group leader?He was a first class leader.  A young local man, clearly highly focussed on his job as our leader, but yet full of humour, knowledge, and humanity to us as demanding, stumbling, inept tourists - well some of us anyway.  He was instrumental in making our experience as exceptionally good as it was.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Reasonable fitness, good walking boots, and walking poles all help in making the trip more enjoyable.  It can also get cold at night so a good sleeping bag is a must.Is there anything else you would like to add?For anybody needing a bit of a break from the tedium and intensity of life in modern England this trip is exactly the tonic you need.  Come back refreshed and uplifted and with sore knees!
