Mount Toubkal trip 7-14/09/14

A good introduction to trekking in Morocco for the more serious hillwalker, allowing for acclimatisation before summiting the highest mountain in North Africa. The porterage of luggage, tents and food by mules provides a degree more comfort, while the meals provided were welcome and a better standard than one might of expected given the conditions.

Mount Toubkal

This was a very well organised trip. Transfers to and from the airport were all organised and it's easy to spot other exodus travellers with their big yellow bags. The food was fantastic and there was much more of it than I was expecting. The walks were good and a pleasant way to do Toubkal and the surrounding Atlas Mountains. We didn't need to treat water at all and you just need to buy water at the available places and ask when the next opportunity to buy more is so you can plan quantity sensibly. The walk isn't 'non-technical'; there is a lot of slippy scree and a bit of scrambling up boulders. Fitness needs to be reasonable but the climbs were very do-able. Don't be put off by the 95 diagonals it's easier than it looks. Marrakech was interesting and easily done in the 24 hours at the end. I wouldn't bother staying on longer in Marrakech it's self.

Mount Toubkal - one week trek

Fantastic trip which I'll never forget and for me a big achievement to have climbed so high and in altitude. I keep reliving it and looking at my photos.

A wonderful experience

We were a group of 3 married couples of 50 + years. Our guide was called Hassan , he very quickly discovered the capabilities of us ladies in our group and always made sure we were challenged but still capable of enjoying ourselves. I personally chose not to make the ascent from base camp but the others did. All of the Berber men who looked after us were very good and courteous. Our trusty muleteer Ashdou and his mule Tashdou were never far behind . The food were excellent

A potentially fabulous trip, let down by incompetent tour representation

It oul have been a trip of a life time, if only the service provided by an operator with 40 years experience in adventure travel had not let me down badly. I cannot believe I was the first or could have been the only tour member who arrived at Marrakesh airport without my entire kit, due to BA leaving it at Gatwick airport and not reuniting me with my entire kit not until the return date. Disappointing as this was, it was made worse by the total lack of help I was offered by the local representative of Exodus in Marrakesh. Apart from a hastily organised sleeping bag there was nothing that would have made my trip possible. No clothing, towel, toilet paper, toothbrush, hand wipe, rucksack or even an emergency pair of change of clothing, underwear or suncreme o offer. Had it not been for a friendly and competent tour member, I might as well have returned to Edinburgh on my heels. Moreover, I was made to feel all this was my fault by the Moroccan tour leader and made to feel an outcast during the entire trip. Marrakesh is a big city and open all day and night. To send someone to buy some emergency supplies overnight, when the company has local representation would not have been asking to much? But nothing was forthcoming. As this was my forth trip with Exodus over the years and not my first to Morocco, I know for sure it could have been handled better and did not have to be so abysmal. Would I travel again with the company? Not sure. Would I travel again to Morocco. Certainly, but with a different ground handler.

Exodus Response

We are extremely sorry to learn that this was not Sigrid’s most memorable trip with Exodus.

We understand it is extremely frustrating for personal luggage to be lost when travelling and are very sorry that Sigrid’s bag went missing in transit to Marrakech airport. We regret that Sigrid didn’t find her tour leader, or our local office in Marrakech, to be very helpful regarding this situation, but we would like to assure all future travellers that this experience does not fall in line with the normally very positive comments we receive about this trip and our local staff. Our customer services team are currently investigating all of the points Sigrid has raised and will address her concerns directly.

MT TOUBKAL CLIMB

An enjoyable, better than expected, experience.  The combination of excellent organiastion by Exodus, the guide, his team, and the group has made this one of the best trips of my life so far.  The bonus was getting to the top of Toubkal!

MT TOUBKAL CLIMB

This was my first pre-organised trip and was well organised, a good guide (Hassan senior), excellent food, great weather, brilliant views and a magnificent group of people, who all made it to the summit!!!Thta combined with a good value-for-money price, made this memorable.
