The 2 tour guides were great and very knowledgable about the area and culture. They made sure that everyone was ok even though people were of different abilities. The scenery was also excellent!

Meeting my fellow travellers. Seeing Berber life.
[Least enjoyed] The accommodation. I can do "basic", and that was what I was expecting, but this was too much - two nights in Fatima's house has left me literally covered in what my doc says are probably bed-bug bites, which two weeks on are proving hard to get rid of. I would rather not wash than have to wash using the tap in the same cubicle as a "squat" toilet. Camping would have been more hygienic.
Itinereary was good - though beginning our first walk at midday wasn't a great idea - it left people a bit dispirited
[Accommodation] Have said it already! I don't want you to think I am a prissy princess type - I'm certainly not. and have "roughed it" often - but it just wasn't acceptable.Speaking to other people who have done similar trips elsewhere - Inca trail, for example, - they said that this was worse, and that it is perfectly possible to have basic BUT CLEAN accommodation, but this wasn't. Should add though that Marrakech hotel was fine.
Youssef was quite brusque in his manner. Just "grumpy" - not helped by doing the same walks as us without food and water, I don't suppose, but our assistant guide, S'lem, did manage to be good-natured and pleasant.At the briefing, he did not introduce himself properly and didn't give us the opportunity tell each other our names - many of us had arrived separately, remember. He was just a bit grumpy - he did the practical bits of the job well, but we all got on with each other inspite of him, not because of him.Just needs to improve his communication skills and adopt a more gently, smiley manner job well

Walking in lovely surroundings with the challenge of very high temperatures. Staying in the Berber houses and experiencing a snapshot of a different way of life and culture. Drinking mint tea!
[Least enjoyed] The gruffness of the guide at times probably due to Ramadan and not being able to eat or drink whilst trekking in very high temperatures but I suppose that is all part of the experience.
The hotel in Marrakech was good. The conditions in the Berber houses was very basic as expected and part of the experience, however the toilets/sinks were at times quite unsanitory at times (probably due the the fact that they did not flush and being used by 30 plus people!) I understand that this may be typical of the conditions experienced by the Berbers everyday - so I am not sure if much can be done about that.
Ramadan made the situation difficult for our guide in the extremely high temps 50c and probably affected his mood. Sometimes I felt that we were being drip fed information rather than being kept in the loop which can help with dealing with the demands of the trek.

Really enjoyed the walking element we had a good group of people.
Food was excellent and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
The cook and muleteers were also very friendly and professional.
The tour of Marrakech was not very insightful and guide was not particularly engaging. Would of prefer to explore the city on my own.
The gites were clean and spacious.
I really liked the Hotel we stayed in in Marrakech, rooms were good and decor of the hotel was very in keeping of Moroccan style.
Knowledgeable, friendly, was very much part of the group.

The guide through the atlas mountains was excellent
Mr W - Travelled in February 2012
Scenrety, the local people
Really did not appreciate being taken to a blatant tourist trap (Berber pharmacy)on a trip around Marakech
OK, I know I'm a boring Western medical professional but I really would have liked hot water and showers to be (mush) easier than they were. Our guide brought soap (great) but washing in cold water in a bitterly cold outside toilet really took the edge off for me.
Mr E - Travelled in February 2012
The knowledge and friendliness of the tour guide, Moha. The whole experience was amazing! The High Atlas scenery is stunning. Having lunch freshly prepared on the trek.
difficult to give Berber village houses a star rating - it is what it is
A lovely guy, knowledgable, helpful, funny and interesting
Mrs E - Travelled in February 2012
A fantastic trip, I was really well looked after from beginning to end. The local guides were knowledgable and fun. My fellow travellers were a brilliant group, i have made friends for life.
it would have been better to have direct flights to Marrkech, the bus ride to Cassablanca was quite long.
Brilliant trip, set at an excellent pace.
I didn't know what to expect from the accomodation but it was on the whole very good.
the local leaders were very professional and great fun.

The walking, generally.
The food on the trek was disappointing. Considering there was a cook (who was lovely) and the good ingredients available in Morocco it is a shame that we resorted to prepared foods at times.
Not sure that the Marrakech tour at the end was necessary. It certainly wasn't very stimulating. Marrakech is no longer the mysterious North African it used to be. You need to go to Fez before it is spoilt. Taradount remains enchanting.Thanks to cheaper flights Marrakech is now open to all but the appearance of parking meters says it all!
Youseff and Mohor(?) were attentive and interesting as well as humourous
Mr A - travelled in December 2011
Dancing in the new year Berber-style on top of a Marrakech rooftop
Learning to use the hammam in village gites
Amazing scenery, well paced and well supported treks, and a wonderful group of people
Miss C - Travelled in December 2011
The option walk on Day 4.
[Least enjoyed] The city tour - the tour guide didn't seem very interested!
[Accommodation] Very basic - no flushing toilets!
