This was my first trip with Exodus and I feel that it couldn't have been any better. As a teenager looking for some adventure I found this trip to be a fantastic holiday. I travelled alone yet felt part of the group very quickly after arriving. We were well looked after by our guide and muleteers from start to finish, yet the sense of exploration isn't lost. Although I am not an experienced hill climber I am used to walking regularly so found that my fitness level was high enough to be able to enjoy the experience without finding it too demanding. In terms of scenery there is plenty to look at, as well as getting a good insight into the Berber way of life. Towards the end of the trek the Toubkal climb is something to look forward to as reaching the summit gives a good sense of achievement. The food provided throughout was very impressive as we were consistently well fed. Our cook Hassan did an amazing job with lunch and dinner. Each day these meals were very tasty and well presented. There was always a good supply of tasty vegetables, soup, fresh bread and pasta/rice/couscous (Although the meat – which was only served a few times - was not very popular). The time spent in Marrakech is a very different experience to climbing but is again very interesting and exciting. The contrast between the peaceful mountain life and the bustling streets is a nice change. With plenty handmade objects on offer, the markets offer a great deal of good quality and unique souvenirs if you have the patience to haggle for the price. Although I was content with the following I am aware this trip is not for everyone as there are many consecutive nights spent in tents and a long time without any access to running water (so no toilet or shower for over a week). Also the hotel in Marrakech, along with the gites are quite basic. With this considered, I would strongly recommend this trip to any fit individual who is happy to rough it for a while. This journey provides an amazing challenge which will reward you with plenty of sun, some great scenery, the chance to meet many interesting people, and the opportunity to bag three peaks over 4000m. And finally, I could afford this on a student’s budget which says a great deal about the value of this experience!
