"We cannot praise enough our main driver and guide Mostapha El Ghazi who is an excellent choice for families as he loves old and young alike, is personable, warm, friendly and wise and became a good friend who we were sad to say goodbye to when we were dropped off at Essaouira. We shall keep in touch and feel he is a very special person, inspirational with his kind and gentle view of the world - we had an insight into trekking the Atlas Mountains and the peaceful Berber lifestyle. We learnt a lot from him and were humbled by his altruism. This made it more than the usual holiday - a real eye opener for our teenage daughters! We can not recommend him highly enough for English/French/Spanish/Arabic speaking families."
