    More than we could have hoped for, great weather conditions, great guides, great food, perfect accommodation, great exchange rates.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?When the sun came up on summit day, the mountains behind us lit up as though they had been painted with gold leaf, the cold which had seeped into our bones was slowly removed by the warmth of the sun. Clearing the lip of the pass on the first day, the view was breathtaking The crispness of the sheets in the hotel on our last day, being able to stretch your legs out in the night without fear of kicking the person in the next bunkWhat did you think of your group leader?He was very informative, very patient and a good laugh - just the right mixDo you have any advice for potential travellers?Be prepared for the weather to potentially scupper your summit plans, don't get hung up on it being too risky, it is better to be alive and undamaged , it is more difficult than I anticipated due to the ice and deep snow, we were fortunate to have a break in the weather and good experienced guides.Is there anything else you would like to add?Very good value, a cracking experience for anyone wanting to see how they fare at altitude.

    It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway. Exodus have done it again, great trip, great guide great food, great group. Could have done with more snow, but I guess that is beyond even the powers of Exodus to organise.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Oddly enough it was summiting Ouanakrim, and not Toubkal. It's fair to say that the group were by and large of the same opinion. More snow, better walk, better views, and a good scramble all added to the experiance.What did you think of your group leader?Hassan, local guide who knew and was known and respected by just about everyone. He first climbed Toubkal when he was just 9, which is a few years ago, but I'll not let on how many. Couldn't have asked for better.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Go for it, but try and pick a winter with a bit more snow, something that was sadly lacking this year.Is there anything else you would like to add?Take your time, enjoy Morocco, the mountains and all that Marrakech has to offer.

    A snowy challenge in the company of a good group and excellent guides. Fantastic holiday achievable in a week.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Looking down a steep snowy slope which we'd just climbed on crampons (my first time).The summit of Mt Toubkal.What did you think of your group leader?Helpful, encouraging, felt very safe. Changed the schedule so that we did Mount Toubkal on the first day - a good call as a storm came in on the evening of the 2nd day and though we walked that day, the ridge to the 2nd peak was too windy for us to get to the summit.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Refuge is quite basic but is fine and a good location at the head of the valley. I had down booties which were great in the refuge to keep feet warm, especially when getting up for the loo in the middle of the night. If noise affects you take ear plugs for sleeping at night in the dorm. One of the accommodation had a very smoky lounge (from the stove which provided the only warmth in the room). If you have asthma I'd check with Exodus what the current situation is, as it might cause you problems.Is there anything else you would like to add?It is a good trip if you want to try out walking on snow. I found it quite challenging - hauling myself out of snow when I broke the crust/soft snow and contouring round a steep slope. However, the guides were there to help and as walks are based from the refuge it is possible to return early.
