"We loved our holiday. Hi-lights were the Riads in Marrakesh, the warmth and friendliness of the staff; the 3 day desert safari/ tour of the south, the camels, camps and staff there, and the Tamagroute visit; the half day tour of Marrakesh. Siad, our half day Marrakesh guide, was excellent, as was Rachid who took us on the safari (15-17 feb)."

"Seeing the Sahara and experiencing sunset in this magical and barren place. Our guide for the Marrakech walking tour was lovely and knowledgeable and showed up some truly wonderful sites. Our guide/driver down to the Sahara, Wadii, was simply amazing. His humour and friendliness were infectious and every moment of the trip was pure magic. I would recommend him a million times over for any kind of trip in Morocco, be it a desert adventure or trip around Marrakech."

"David and I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you both for organising the most fantastic birthday holiday for us. Everything was so effortless and perfectly arranged. We hope it will be a lot sooner than 9 years to be in touch again for our next trip (and it hopefully won't be so last minute too!). Very best wishes and thanks"
