It's hard to believe before you go on this trip that a travel group can get 100% positive ratings. It isn't hard to believe when you experience the trip for yourself. Youssef is completely tuned in to the group's vibe and does his job with complete attention, kindness and humour. He is a great driver as was Ibrahim in our 2nd car. Together with our guide Mohammed, they were a great team, bringing lots of knowledge, passion about their Berber culture and fun and laughter too. It was a pleasure to visit Youssef's Berber family, enjoy lots of lovely music, try great food, see fantastic scenery and - of course - trek out on camels into the soft sands of the desert. A very special trip worthy of every one of those stars and more beyond.

Morocco and Amazing places to vsiti Unarguably home to the best cuisines on the planet, as well as a wickedly phenomenal mint tea, Morocco is a country that reverberates with Arabian themes despite being a north African country. Predominantly Muslim, the country has an intoxicating mixture of Berber, Arabic, Muslim, and French, due to the long period spent under French rule that finally ended in 1956. Morocco is known for its many beaches and coastal regions, the Atlas Mountains, its Moroccan mint and its amazing food, then the amazing Sahara with its sand dunes wher amost poeple realise the camel ride to enjoy with the sunset and sunrise then spend a night in a berber tent. Morocco is safe for any level of traveler, regardless whether you're a beginning adventurer or a veteran in oddity. However, it should be noted that the Western Sahara region of the country is generally considered dangerous due to the presence of land-mines left over from the many territorial battles. It should also be noted that being a Muslim country attire and manners should be respectful. Most people focus their sights on such cities as Tangier, with its decadent artistic past and present, or Casablanca with its architecture, the Hassan II Mosque, and the romance in the atmosphere. Morocco is perfect if you are a backpacker, as well. The country offers some of the most rigorous trekking that one can find within Africa. From the mule trains along the heights of the Atlas Mountains, home to Africa's highest peaks, to the rugged trails of the Rif Mountains, or the Todra Gorge, there is plenty for the outdoor enthusiast to see and experience, although it's definitely off the beaten path. And if you're one of those individuals who enjoy sticking to the cities and the beaches, there's plenty of that as well. With coastlines along the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, places like Casablanca, Marrakesh, Essaouira, or Agadir combine ancient history with modern luxury in a breathtaking mixture of cultures and experiences. Morocco is without doubt one of the most unique places to travel on the entire planet. From the food, the drinks, the culture, the people, the landscapes and scenery, and the history, this place is legendary for so many reasons that it's almost impossible to cover them all, and tempts the adventurer to explore.
