When travelling it’s the people that make the trip enjoyable. Our leader on our Morocco in Depth trip, Hamid Oumezdou was THE person who made the tour so enjoyable! Hamid was a ball of positive energy and had us laughing throughout the trip … a great friend, we will miss him.

The Moroccan trip exceeded our expectations and we would consider coming back to check out the northern parts. Don’t hesitate to book. Our leader & driver were brilliant. A very happy traveller with much more knowledge than I started out with! 5*
