    Our CEO guide was good at times and not so great at others. His communication style was poor--he was social, but there were times when he said we'd be able to stop for water and then not stop and was upset when we asked again. He'd ask why we didn't get water last time during the bathroom break...but there was no store there! That along with the fact that he seemed very closed minded about Western cultures on a variety of conversations. When asked if it was ok to eat some of the fresh salads, as we were told it might not be the most hygienic to do so, he got offended. He said it was fine, but more than half of our tour got sick, vomiting, fever and had to use the bathroom quite a bit due to the food we had eaten at a restaurant or hotel somewhere along the way. He didn't seem to have much sympathy that we were sick, it seemed like it was an inconvenience for him instead. I've been on other G-Adventure trips and by far this guide is an awful representation of G-Adventures. I can't believe he received good reviews from other trips, but maybe that's because people didn't get sick on his trip. He's social, but not the best person to work with international cultures, he seemed annoyed and narcissistic.

    Thanks for the honesty here. We will look into this and see what happened. We apologize for any difficulties caused and feel badly most of the group became ill. That is not how anyone intends to spend their vacation.

    The only thing I did not like and I would like to draw your attention to is the matter of tipping: Our tour guide - Issam told us at the beginning of the tour that we have to collect 400 Dirham each into "tips pool" that will include tips during our trip. I found the amount of money for tipping very unreasonable (400Dirham from each person! and there were 15 people in the group) apart from that we would still give tips from our own pocket in the cafes, toilets etc. because again we were told to do so. Also at the end of the trip, Issam suggested to tip a driver and the amount which was suggested is 300 Dirhams per person !!!! I don't want to assume how much was collected for the guide himself, because i did not go to the final dinner. It was very frustrating and disappointing because I felt i was robbed. Those people work and get their salary from G-adventure and they should not have asked for more or at least not at that amount. I also work and get salary from my employer. I had a feeling that in their eyes we come from overseas and we loaded with cash and they have a chance to milk us out. This attitude I did not like at all and was quite disappointing.

    Thanks for the review. Tipping is always a sensitive area, and a tipping kitty allows our CEO's to take care of the daily tips that can become irksome. That said, the funds should be clearly accounted for, and we will work on this. Thanks for the honesty and for the review.

    This was an excellent introduction to Morocco! I loved traveling with a small group--our CEO guide was knowledgeable, and friendly, putting everyone at ease. Plus, he took extra steps to make sure our needs were met, when we needed medicine, special foods and train tickets. Our friendly local guides provided lots of information within the time constraints. The packed itinerary still provided time to pause. Chefchaouen, Fes, and Essaouira were the highlights for me!

    Thanks for sharing. Our CEO's in Morroco are second to none and it looks like they didn't disappoint here. Morocco is always a crowd pleaser when it comes to adventure travel!

    Abdul (CEO guide) was extremely knowledgeable and took great care of us and our needs. He was open in answering some tough questions about culture, religion and traditions and left us with great appreciation for Morocco. The group got along really well.

    This tour was a great way to get a glimpse of the different areas of Morocco. It was enjoyable even though there were a few days that we spent too much time on the bus but that was the only way to see all that we did. I highly recommend the tour and our CEO Abdul who shared with us the history and what it’s like to be a Moroccan.

      Your website was very simple to use. I was able to find exactly what I wanted and when I wanted my tour. The price was also a big factor in choosing your company. As I have done a Cosmos tour before, I knew it would be good value for the price.
