    Our guide Assa was excellent, from his spoken English, his safe driving and excellent knowledge. A great day had by all. Pity about the roadworks enroute but totally outwith their control.

    Lanhar was an excellent guide: kind, thoughtful and informative. The colours of the stony desert were amazing; Ait Benhaddou is almost surreal. We saw how the 'bricks' were made and learned of the history of this place. We were given free time at Ouarzazate and I learned of its history. The road is treacherous and hence Lanhar's careful driving was a key element in the enjoyment of the day. Lanhar has a friendly but not intrusive disposition which makes him an ideal guide. He created a very easy atmosphere in the group. I had a great day. Thank you

    Initially they booked us on the wrong trip, but we figured it out before leaving the hotel and they found us another guide. The trip was really nice and M'êdi was a great guide.
