Brilliant Tour Director - Graham Lye. Loved hotels in Marrakech & Erfoud. Ibis hotels in Casablanca & Ouzarzate OK. Hotel in Fez awful! Wonderful varied tour, third day should be shorter - Casablanca, Rabat, Meknes, then arriving in Fez, too much to take in. Amazing mountain, Sahara, rural & city variety - excellent Tour Director kept us informed & entertained throughout.
Really interesting and well organised, made even better by Graham the tour director who was informative,interesting and fun - nothing was too much trouble.
I liked the tour Director Graham (Aziz his local name) as his knowledge of the place was good & his humour. He ensured all the guests were fine & was a very good tour director. Only thing I didn't like was the food for the vegetarians was poo...
I liked the tour Director Graham (Aziz his local name) as his knowledge of the place was good & his humour. He ensured all the guests were fine & was a very good tour director. Only thing I didn't like was the food for the vegetarians was poor as not much variety. Some of the hotels were very basic especially Hotel Kasbah Tizimi. I think the optional tours should have been included in the price. I didn't like the Fez - ImperianMedina tour as felt very insecure as very small alleyways & felt if you didn't keep up then you would get lost as the local tour guide didn't keep an eye to see if everyone in the group were altogether following him.
Full programme, amazing sights,,,,

The tour guide (Paulina) was exceptionally good. Would have liked a little more rural aspects and culture on the main tour - we only got this on the optional extra trip to the sand dunes. Hotels generally good. More detailed feedback on evaluation forms.
Wonderful Scenery. An excellent Tour Manager who brought the whole area alive for us. Safe Coach travel and mostly good hotels, although some were located outside the relevant areas.
Good value. Saw an amazing amount of this fascinating country. Paulina our TD was fantastic
More of a tour of Expensive gift shops with the odd nice bit
Good value for money <br/>Pauline, our guide was excellent.
I saw lots of Morocco that I would never have done if I had gone independently
Covered all main areas we wanted to see. Hotels fine - especially when making allowance for the general development in the country. Tour director, Graham Lye, VERY good. Organised, informative and great fun.
Hotels mostly good, activities varied and interesting.
The trip involved a great deal of travelling but we felt we had learnt a great deal & certainly experienced the real Morocco. Aziz the tour director was a master at his craft and greatly added to everyone's knowledge and enjoyment. Brilliant.

The holiday was not Highlights of Morocco but Madeira. Unfortunately when we when we arrived no transfer had been arranged and it was by pure luck that we located a representative who then arranged a taxi for us, we were kept waiting at the airport for some time although the rep. was very helpful. The hotel also did not appear to understand that we were booked through Archers. The experience would make me disinclined to book through Archers again.
Standard of hotels in certain places very poor and only one on tour central. Food only passable. Had to pay extra for excursions which should have been included in tour in Fez and was subjected to 2 factory visits. Eight members of party got very b...
Standard of hotels in certain places very poor and only one on tour central. Food only passable. Had to pay extra for excursions which should have been included in tour in Fez and was subjected to 2 factory visits. Eight members of party got very bad stomach bugs and it did not help that there was no toilet on coach. Wi-fi but no toilet.
