    We saw many great sites in a short period of time. Was a very tiring trip but that was expected.

    The tour was great. The hotels are very very simple. La Rose du Sable in Ait Benhaddou was the worst. Moroccan House Hotel in Casablanca (1st night) was the 2nd worst. All others were simple but clean and comfortable. Except for Fes, we're only one night in each place and by the time we get to the hotel we are tired and just want hot shower and comfy bed. The highlight of the trip (agreed by all) was the ride/night/day in the desert. It was really cold at night but it was totally worth it. But I loved the trip and would do it again.

    Mustapha Mezan was an amazing guide as he made time to get to know everyone. He was very knowledgable and had a great sense of pride in his country and culture. I like our small group as it made it easieer for us to get to know each other. I made new friends who I know i will see again.

    Beautiful trip of Morocco, fantastic for those travellers who only have 8 days or so to visit the country. The guide (Mustapha) was very knowledgeable and the driver good. The group size (14 people max) was perfect. Some days we have travelled a lot (up to 11 hours), but we stopped several times on the way and the diversity of the places and lands we were driving through made the time fly. For the night in the desert, G Adventures recommend taking a sleeping bag especially for the winter months (like the one we travelled - January). As it occupies too much space in the suitcase, you could bring instead something like a ski suit, which keeps you very warm and occupies less space in the suitcase. Woolen blankets are provided though in the camp site. The tour spent no time in Casablanca and basically just half a day in Marrakech (not enough!), so I recommend arriving 1 day earlier and departing 2 days later to have some time to see Casablanca and enjoy Marrakech. About the hotels, they were mostly 3 stars hotels, very basic, but clean. Buffet breakfast quality was average, quantity and variety quite poor. Considering that no other meals are included in the tour, I would recommend G Adventures to enhance the level of breakfast as much as possible. For the rest, I can only recommend the tour, it was a beautiful experience, Marocco is an amazing place to visit!

Nothing was too much trouble, he was always really happy and we learnt a lot from talking to him. All of the local guides in each city were also great, they were really knowledgeable and funny. We were lucky to have such great weather and a truly amazing group, of all ages and backgrounds. Highlights included the overnight camp in the desert and the local hammam... Seriously go and try it! You definitely need an open mind and a sense of adventure but this was one of the best trips I've ever done.

    The overall trip itself was good. I love Morocco (I had been before) and the other people on the tour were wonderful and really made the trip what it was. Unfortunately, a main issue I had in not giving the overall tour a better review was our tour guide, Yassine. The entire time he was very unenthused, didn't seem to care about us or really help us out, and rarely engaged or even took part in our meals/dinners/activities. And almost everyone on the trip took notice. An older woman on the tour even had a talk with him the night after the Sahara desert - just saying that he needed to explain more to us and give us more direction in general. He tried a little harder after that conversation but honestly, not that much harder. He is a very knowledgeable and smart young man, but I think that was the problem - he was too young. At 30 years old, it might be a little difficult to take true pride in your work / act selfishly in general. Maybe he should be placed with a younger, less mature audience going forward. Like - early 20s group. Anyway, that was a very disappointing part of the trip in general. My mother had been on a G adventure tour a few months before (hosted by Mohamed Air Logham) and she said she had the very best time because of how incredible Mohamed was. She still raves about him to this day, and he even asked Yassine to give me a call while we were on the bus because he wanted to say hello to me and send my mother a gift. I think if we had had a tour guide more like that - caring, helpful, informative, kind - it would have made a huge difference and I would have loved the trip. Another issue I had with the tour was "free time". The hotels we stayed at were not very centrally located so our free time consisted of twiddling our thumbs and sitting around for hours waiting for the next activity. Sometimes we sat around at the hotel pools...not really something I need to be doing during my short time in Morocco. Maybe some suggestions about what to do / less free time would be better. Casablanca was a complete waste of a time in general - we roamed the streets aimlessly for 3 hours and came back empty handed and confused. We were all so excited about the market place in Fes, but we found ourselves being RUSHED through the medina by Yassine and the local tour guide, with no free time or time to browse the little shops (only to find out the market place in Marrakech would be closed for the big holiday on Friday/Sat - which G adventures and our tour guide completely forgot to tell us...which I thought was very strange in general since that's a huge reason people go to Marrakech. Besides the below average tour guide, the strange locations of the hotels, the wasted free time, and noticing that we were charged double by G adventures for the hotel rooms (when we extended our stay in Marrakech, G adventures charged us $85 and if we booked it online, the same room was $39...so we cancelled), it would have been an amazing time. Not sure I would do G Adventures again.

    I had such a wonderful time in Morocco. My tour leader Driss made the experience very memorable. I have so many people asking me about Morocco upon my return and they have been interested in traveling there after seeing and hearing about my experience.
