A wonderful culture experience and we were superbly led by Wahid and Mohammed the driver. If you are paying for premium accommodation beware, as in a number of locations it just isn’t premium

I had an amazing trip to Morocco. It was led by a friendly, organized and knowledgeable group leader. I enjoyed travelling with a small group of people who were like minded. The places, especially the villages were the highlight of the trip. The Moroccan people opened their homes to us and showed us snippets of their daily lives.

This trip was nothing short of amazing. I loved the Intrepid touch to the itinerary. Not only did we see all the major tourist places but spending time with the locals and how they live was certainly the highlight. What a beautiful country, inside and out!
