What our customers have to say...

A very knowledgeable and attentive man. He was aware of different levels of fitness and ability and was constantly assessing the situation and was always calm and collect. A very professional and inspiring leader. The trip had some moments where his leadership and calm presence inspired at least one person to complete the trip when they may have simply given up.  Alan Johnson, WT 12 MARCH 2010

Our Moroccan guides for this trip -'Winter Toubkal' were Mohammed and Khaled. They were absolutely excellent, in particular Mohammed as our lead guide provided for all our needs. He couldn’t do enough to make sure we were happy and at all times we felt safe and in very capable hands. They had excellent local knowledge and were very open and happy to describe local customs and traditions. On the service they alone provided I would be more than happy to recommend the Adventure Company to friends and family.  Emma Berkery & Maurice Turley, WT 12 MARCH 2010

Mohamed is a great asset to your company, took any issues in his stride and never forgot we were there to holiday, excellent safety on some hard areas. Hope to come across him again it would be a pleasure.  Paul Quinn, SGWT 25 FEBRUARY 2010

What can I say - Mohamed (Lead guide) and Mohamed (second guide) were excellent. I felt totally confident in their ability and would have to say having been on quite a few international trekking trips in the past few years, they are definitely the best guides we have had. They kept an inexperienced group of ice walkers very safe during this trip to Mount Toubkal in a most relaxed atmosphere. Thank you to them both that I managed with my vertigo fear to get to the top of Toubkal and back again. This would not have happened without a 'helping hand' from both.  Thanks to them... I would love to trek with them again.  Maria Oreilly, SGWT 25 FEBRUARY 2010
