All in all this was an excellent tour & thoroughly enjoyed it & we visited many wonderful places. Graham the guide was informative and entertaining & knew everyone's name. The hotel in Erfoud was lovely and a great change from the modern rather souless hotels. The excursion to the Sand Dunes was stunning. I would like to offer up some thoughts for maybe improving. Compared with Cosmos clients from other countries, we received relatively little information, such as country advice, clothes for seasons, information about optional trips. All this was in a booklet which others had but wasn't even online for us. The flight times back to Manchester were wrong, because of the clock changes & this meant because transport had been arranged beforehand, we had a 4 hour airport wait (when I was poorly). The hotel in Marrakesh was quite far out & the hotel advertised transport wasn't the reality. It would have been so much nicer to have been able to get into the Medina easily. The hotel was very noisy & breakfast times were a complete bun fight because of the high numbers of other guests & not at all pleasant. hotel in Fez also a way out. I would suggest having the optional Fez excursion as part of the holiday. there seems no reason not to have a guided tour.The included meal was very mediocre. However, none of this stopped a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed it although cold. Our tour guide and local guides were excellent and the venues visited very interesting. The bus was comfortable and driver exceptionally good. Food offered in the hotels was not very exciting and I suspect it is kept bland for foreigners!!

some of the Hotels were a little tired, we do not mind basic, but plumbing was pretty poor in one hotel. On this holiday it would have been a great advantage if the coach had a toilet, although we stopped regularly, Phycologically if you feel a little unwell, knowing that there was a toilet on board would have helped as often we were miles from any facillities .
