Accommodation as stated or similar
Good value for money all considered
forv what was included in tour very well priced. Excellent tour director who made the tour even better
Really great tour of Morocco. Covered a great number of places and had an excellent guide.
Enjoyed the holiday very much. Accommodation was satisfactory apart from the Ibis hotels as the rooms were very small for two people and amenities such as towels, soaps etc were very limited. However, the food appeared to be cold in all hotels which was a disappointment. Perhaps you could investigate about this for future tours. I have travelled with Archers many times and Paulina, our tour director is one of the best tour guides I have come across. Her helpfulness and caring attitude made this trip so special. Nothing was too much for her and her local knowledge was very astounding. I am very impressed with the her.
Morocco was wonderful. My only grumble would be that we visited two carpet sale rooms and two cosmetic ones, which to me was one of each too many. However we saw an awful lot of the country and learned a lot about the culture of the place.
The tour was good, the only thing that could have been improved upon was the last days in Marrakech instead of being dumped in yet another Souk and being pressurised to buy things, the Jardin Majorelle would have been a nice alternative. It was an extremely pleasant visit, which we undertook on our own, and I think some of the Australians would have enjoyed it, It had a lovely clean cafe serving appertising lunches, instead of having to have yet another cheese omlette and chips as the best alternative. It made us think that Morrocco not so bad as we thought.
Brilliant tour director, beautiful scenery, lots of history and culture, food was lovely.
