Morocco Holiday Review

“You may be interested in our impressions of a marvellous trip. The programme was well balanced and and gave a good overview of the interesting country. By alternating town and countryside we got a good idea of ancient and modern Morocco.

The local organisation had obviously done its job and accomplished it smoothly. A lot of praise goes to our driver, Mr Hassan, who was always cheerful and helpful, but above all an excellent driver.”
