How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Such a knowledge person about the Moroccan country and culture. We learned so much from him about the Berber people, he even managed to teach us some basic Berber language, so that we could converse with our resident Berber chef and muleteers. He catered for all of the members of the group allowing the group to decide on particular optional walks. His afternoon/evening briefing covered a worth of extra information from geography, wildlife, local customs and Berber stories. He is a real asset to the Explore company.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
I took a lot more clothes than I needed. I did not use the four season sleeping bag in March 2013. The evenings were a little chilly but a smaller two season sleeping bag would be sufficient. Don't take too many clothes.
Do you have anything else to add?
The outgoing group flight was far too late to enjoy Marrakesh on the first evening. Please try to book it at an earlier time, so that you have an extra evening in such a vibrant, lively city. The market is full of life almost 24/7 but you can't enjoy it if you arrive at 22:50 :-)
