An absolutely fabulous tour. My wife was initially sceptical as I booked this without telling her! She was quickly won over by the beautiful scenery and wonderful people we met. Our guide, Marwan was amazing and ensured all of us had an unforgettable experience.
The trip was shared with 5 other people that we hadn’t met before and it was a pleasure sharing the trip with them. We had a very comfortable journey in a minivan with many scenic stops on the way. It is worth ensuring that you take warm layers (if travelling in winter months) as it is quite cool at altitude. As general guide for you, some of us were in shorts and hoodies, whilst my wife was in several layers, bobble hat and gloves and still needed a blanket when we stopped for lunch! The trip included a short hike and also a short walk to the Berber house for lunch. These were gentle walks and trainers were suitable.
The lunch itself was beautiful. We sat outside and were able to see the stunning scenery as we ate. The food was second to none and we had bread and salad to start, chicken tagine and couscous (there was a vegetarian option but none of us had this), with fruit and Berber biscuits for dessert. The family were so welcoming and the experience was fantastic.
One of the stops on the way to lunch included the Argan oil coop. This was very interesting and my wife happily purchased a few of their products at very reasonable prices. Look out for a particularly interesting product for men…none of our group made the purchase so I can’t state if it worked…if you do the trip, you’ll know exactly what product I’m referring too!
The team organising the trip kept me up to date throughout the process and Marwan (our guide) was excellent - his knowledge, patience and humour were all perfect for our trip.
