Excellent itinerary which meant you could see a huge portion of the country in a short space of time. A couple of long days on the minibus....but i enjoyed watching the changing scenery!! Due to time constraints it did sometimes feel a bit hurried but again we did get to see the country's many highlights!!
- What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
New Years Eve in the Saraha Desert was an excellent way to welcome in the New Year, one i won't forget for a long time. Watching the sunset from the top of the Sand dunes, then star gazing round the camp fire.
Atlas mountains ~ really enjoyed walking through the Berber village and then relaxing on the Gite's balcony reading my book.
Essaouira a wonderful seaside town, easy place to shop and lovely fish restaurants!!!
- What did you think of your group leader?
Mustapha was excellent! Very knowledgeable and gave plenty of recommendations and advice. Great sense of humour!
Ali the bus driver didn't speak much but was an excellent driver!!!
- Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Best to layer your clothes, in December it did get quite chilly at nights in the desert, gorge and the mountains.
Toilet roll and anti-bacterial gel a must in your day bag!!! Advisable to have coins ready for the toilets.
When haggling start your price below 1/2 of the price the seller is starting with, that way you can ensure you won't be overpaying and get a fairer price. Souvenirs at the desert are very overpriced but as long as your happy with the price your paying its's all good!!
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
Met a great bunch of fellow travellers which made the trip even more memorable!!!
