" My name is Lisa, I was part of the Alannah Virtanen tour in Morocco, Oct 19-26th…I just wanted to provide you with some feedback.
The trip was amazing, I appreciate that everything was handled for us, from the time we were met at the airport, till the time we were dropped off. There were no “glitches” at all, everything went as planned and them some!
Jamal was excellent, I don’t think you could have provided us with a better driver. Once I saw how hazardous the roads are in Morocco I was very thankful we didn’t attempt to drive it ourselves. Jamal is very patient, attention to detail, and very proactive, he thought of everything ahead of time, he is very detail oriented!
I will keep your info handy as I would definitely use your company for future trips, Thanks again for providing us with a tour that enabled us to see everything in Morocco we were interested in, and providing us with a skilled, experienced driver that kept us safe at all times."

"We just want to thank you for arranging such a wonderful trip for us this past month. Our guide, Ali Leghlid, was the best of all guides. He was informative and his English was great and easy to understand. We loved the mountains and the winding roads that took us there and back. And the dunes of Ch'Gagga were our favourite. Ali made sure we were comfortable. He hiked with us up to the top of the dunes for the sunset, truly amazing. The desert experience is one we will always remember. Please thank Ali for us. I'm hoping to email him so let him know how much we appreciated travelling with him." - The Klugers (October 2012).
"The trip in the Desert was excellent." - Sophie O'Donnel - (Sept, 2012)
" I would especially like to commend our driver and guide Mr Ali Leghlid. Ali was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and he went out of his way to take us to places that he knew would provide fantastic photo opportunities. Ali was a very gentle unassuming man who showed great consideration for his beautiful country, its environment and in particular, great kindness towards strangers that we came across while travelling in the Atlas Mountains, Draa Valley and in the Sahara Desert. We were very impressed by the quality of our deluxe tented accommodation, meal and bar facilities, local Moroccan entertainment and the stunning scenery in the mountains, valleys, and desert. Although we were initially unsure about the camel ride into the desert, this turned out to be an excellent and memorable experience, which we are all really glad that we did. I would also like to commend Mr Sarti Lahcew (Lahcen) proprietor of the Fibule du Draa Kasbah Hotel in Zagora for making us feel very welcome and for providing us with a room to shower in following our trip into the desert." - Billy McAlinden – (Aug, 2012)
" I loved the trip to the desert, especially the camel ride and the silence of the dunes... But i was a bit aprehensive at first when we (me and my daughter) realized that were the only clients in the sahara camp. Fortunately it all turned out well after all. Perhaps, we should have known in advance the size of our party. Thank you very much. See you next time." Moraes - (June, 2012)
"Was a holiday will not forget!" - C Spiteri-Jones - (May, 2012)
"We did a desert tour over 2 days - Distant Dunes of Erg Lihoudi. Our trip was fantastic which was largely due to our wonderful tour guide Ali. He was so entertaining and knowledgeable about the area - we really enjoyed spending the 2 days with him. The highlight was taking a camel ride out to the Sahara and staying overnight in the desert camp. Our hosts at the camp were also very accommodating and made us feel at ease.." - Kate o'Hanlon - (Jan, 2012)
" We had an excellent holiday in Marrakesh and the trek into the desert. Hospitality of everyone was very good, warm and friendly people. Ali, our driver on the trek was very attentive, informative and a pleasure to be with. Would definately book with you again." - Mrs R Field - (Jan, 2012)
