Full of cultural and geographic interest Morocco is a destination without a dull moment. The tour was well organised with appropriate added excursions. The Tour Director could not have been better . He was knowledgeable, entertaining and attentive.


Both tour guide and driver were excellent.


Overall good but I think there are too many travelling days on the coach in proportion to the length of the tour. There should be advice given about things like steps to be climbed when visiting a tannery or wearing waterproof shoes when walking thro...


A good tour with a good tour manager. Very good to NOT pay a single supplement for a change.


Really good holiday. We were lucky to have Paulina as our guide, she was excellent. She had all the usual tour guide qualities you would want but her knowledge and insight to the country and its culture was truly the icing the cake. We saw all the hi...


A very interesting trip tour director Graham was excellent. The hotels varied in standard which was understandable due to the locations. Loved the desert hotel so in keeping with the area.


What a wonderful holiday! Such a full itinerary, but so well organised that I never felt rushed. Far too many highlights to mention them all but the sights and sounds of the souks, the drive through the snow capped atlas mountains to the Sahara dese...


It was brilliant and did everything we had been promised. I will be recommending it to all my friends.


Really good varied tour. Lovely touring companions. All made great by our EXCELLENT Tour Director Graham Lye, who was so knowledgeable and informative. It was amazing to have an English director on a foreign tour. He was the best one we have ever ha...


Really good value for money!


The hotel accommodation on this holiday was very poor-unclean and cramped. The towels in 2 of the hotels were grey--had they been washed or just dried from previous guests? Stomach trouble was rife on this holiday and with no emergency toilet on the ...


Our guide, Graham, was TOTALLY perfect. The itinerary for the holiday was excellent. Stayed at Opera Plaza at end of holiday, whilst very good it was too sterile and international, no Moroccan influence, we think the other Marrakech hotel much mor...


Excellent tour would recommend to anyone of all ages. Met at hotel by our bouncy, loud but very good tour director Graham. Everything was explained from numbers on tour to best places to eat on first day and health and safety info. Day one was travel...


Interesting - very early start to days


Our Tour Guide, Graham was great; lots of information , insights, good with the customers and well organised. The itinerary was wonderful, a delightful mixture of busy, exotic imperial cities and the stunning scenery of the Atlas Mountains, kashbars ...


definately the desert trip and star gazing


Excellent holiday but a little more free time would have been appreciated. Some hotels were better than others.


Far exceeded our expectations. Hotels and food better than expected (with some reservations).
Very worried at first about the style of the Tour Director who initially looked likely to upset many of the clients by his "abrasive" attitud...


It didn't include some important sites in some cities as Casablanca or Maknis.
The tour guide spent long time to encourage fellow travelloers to buy shopping. area


We really enjoyed the Highlights of Morocco tour. Our tour director, Ann, was very enthusiastic making sure we had a really good holiday seeing the historic places and telling us about Morocco. Highlights were crossing the Atlas mountains and our add...


I was concerned about the large number in the group,44, but the very efficient guide with extensive local knowledge and the fact that for excursions we had an audio link meant there were no problems. Some hotels were way out of town and this I do n...

Highlights of Morocco

Bob and Annette Harrison 10/07/2015

Just returned from holiday and it was a most enjoyable trip.

The trip was made very special thanks to the excellent Tour Director, Paulina.

She was at all times very helpful and organised the tour to make our holiday enjoyable.  Her knowledge of Morocco, its culture and people allowed us to fully appreciate the country.

Local tour guides enhanced the touring experience greatly.

The coach company provided excellent service especially our Driver and Co-driver who were very professional at all times.

Included and optional tours were very good and excellent value for money.

Easyjet provided and excellent service with friendly and courteous staff on both flights.

We travelled from Manchester, and would recommend the meet and greet valet parking service.

Both my wife and I would highly recommend this holiday to get a very good taste of Morocco, its friendly people and culture.

Overall  the holiday was excellent value for money.

Thank you for your request.
