  1. Mark

    The whole tour was amazing but made even more amazing by the tour guides Hamid and lahcen. They were both very friendly and accommodating and couldn’t do enough for us. During the walking especially when we climbed Toubkal they ensured that all of our abilities were catered for to ensure we all got to the top together.
    They are both experienced and very friendly guides and are a credit to Morocco Travel Guide. They even arranged for a suprise cake for my 50th birthday during our final meal
