This hike and bike trip was fantastic. A brilliant balance of physical activities, sight seeing, travelling, and learning about the culture in the region. Mohamed Inti was a brilliant guide. Highly recommend this trip.

This trip allowed me to experience Morocco in a way that I never would have been able to do by myself. Our trip leader Mohammed Inti went above and beyond, and made the trip even better than it already was. Highly recommend!

Just finished the hike and bike 9 day tour of Morocco. What an amazing trip! Loved the places we visited and the people we met. The activities were a great balance of challenging and relaxing. The highlight for me was the desert. A truly special experience.

Mohamed Inti was the perfect tour leader! Travelling by bike & foot really allowed us to get a proper taste of Moroccan life and explore the High Atlas, Southern Oases towns and the Sahara. Our first experience of group travel was a memorable one - from the guided walks around ksars & kasbahs, a local hammam experience, the amazing local food as well as the spectacular views whilst cycling. Tanmirt Mohamed!
