The trip was simply wonderful, we enjoyed it SO much. Thank you for putting together such an interesting itinerary – we hadn’t realised Morocco was such a big country and the variety of landscapes we travelled through were fascinating. We loved being in a different environment every night, although sometimes we would have liked to stay longer, especially at Tassa Ouirgane the mountain retreat! Our two nights in the desert were a very special experience too – the first one for the journey back from the dunes on the dromedaries (everyone else that night had decided to return by vehicle but we opted for the trek back) and it was a fantastic experience to be plodding along under the stars in the dark, just Saleem, Gordon & I with
6 camels & not a soul around. With Saleem telling jokes as we went along!!
The night at Erg Chagaga was special too in that after we watched the sunset we sat on top of another dune with Addi our driver & Idir our guide drinking mint tea under the stars and listening to Addi haltingly tell us (in
English) his family life story. Such fantastic memories. We loved the desert, the mountains and the gorges & despite Essaouira being busy & touristy we enjoyed a walk on the beach in the morning & some fresh fish!
Addi & Idir were simply excellent. Addi is a superb driver and we were very honoured to have the opportunity to meet his family as we travelled through Erfoud. He also has a very good sense of humour too – which is essential when travelling with Gordon – his moustache was the butt of many jokes! Idir was a terrific guide, very knowledgeable, never got fed up with our many questions & always made sure that we were being looked after – a very competent young man. We learnt a lot about the Moroccan way of life
but we also had a lot of laughs & after a week of travelling we felt we had made new friends.
All in all one of the best holidays we’ve ever had. We are already thinking of a return next year, perhaps to see the north of the country this time.
Thank you again Felicity – 10 out of 10.
