Fantastically well organised trip with a great variety of walking, sightseeing, travel and cuisine. Good group size, interesting itinerary and clever use of local transport. Our guide was entertaining, informed and helpful throughout. Highly recommended (Be aware the walking is not challenging if that's what you're after)
Fantastic trip - I'd give it an extra star if I could. My tour was mid-April to May 1st. Wonderful country and people, great travelling companions lead by a brilliant tour leader and driver. Simply one of the best tours I have ever done. We did and saw so much its almost impossible to pick my most favourite Cuba memory.
A thoroughly enjoyable week in fantastic surroundings. Plenty of picture postcard views on the varied walks.The weather was great all week and even when one walk started with low cloud drifting through the trees it soon cleared to reveal the views.I went on my own and the group were a great bunch to spend the week with.Very nice family run hotel serving some top food. Overall a great mix of walks and sightseeing
This is a great trip where 8 days felt easily like two weeks, giving you total immersion in another way of life, forgetting all about whatever you've left behind to get there. There's a bit of everything - plenty of fresh air and hot sun (plus a bit of snow if you're lucky); freshly squeezed orange on the trail and mint tea at every turn; the camaraderie of campsites and the celebration of reaching the summit; followed by the sheer craziness of Marrakech.
An excellent trip. Well organised with an experienced, friendly (and patient!) guide. We loved the variety, camels in the desert one day and a walk in the mountains the next. Accomodation was more than satisfactory and the food was plentiful and delicious!
It is very unfortunate to hear these comments regarding our Responsible Tourism project in Morocco, especially when I have worked with the village for many years. Please note first and foremost that although Exodus project work started at the school 10 years ago, our focus is now with the Tjihza Village Association and not the school.
This misunderstanding started when the schoolteachers changed a few years ago - they did not turn up regularly for school to teach the children and were upset that Exodus were providing money for a water tower in the village (so all villagers could have running water) rather than buying laptops for the teachers. We have completed a lot of work at the school but it is not well maintained by the teachers so this would explain why it looks so out of place with the other buildings. Over the years, we have installed new windows, painted classrooms, paid for goalposts, built a sanitary block and provided a computer for the school amongst other things. However we always work alongside the villagers on all requested work so the doors and windows we have bought for the school are waiting to be installed, yet the teachers need to first complete their duties (clearing rubbish from outside, keeping classrooms clean etc).
When Exodus get involved in Responsible Tourism, by no means do we consider ourselves a charity. We simply choose to give something back to the communities we visit. It is extremely regrettable that the teachers cannot support our efforts in the same way the rest of the village has and we are trying to resolve this relationship to help the children of Tijhza (rather than the teachers who are not from this village).
This was an absolutely incredible trip. It was brilliantly organised so we were able to fit a huge amount into two weeks. Lots of travel involved and all went very smoothly. Visited some absolutely amazing sights. I have returned refreshed and eager to go back to China!
