Service rating : Excellent service all around. We had lots of helpful advice about where to go and where to stay. Pre tour information dossier spot on, loads of really useful and relevant information. Local guides wonderful, always punctual and very professional whilst maintaining a great sense of fun and adventure. We felt well looked after and enjoyed amazing scenery, hotels, food and adventures. The Atlas mountains and Sahara Desert were empty in August, amazing to have it all to ourselves. If you don't mind the heat think it's a great choice for a family summer holiday with teenagers, I think Morocco is missing a marketing trick here!
Product : Excellent value holiday to Morocco.

Service rating : Tourdust did a great job guiding us through options for where to stay and activities for our trip to Morocco. Our first trip there so we needed advice on a range of items, they were very responsive and helpful throughout
Product : As we learned more about the options for lodging and travel we made a number of changes. Tourdust was really helpful in helping us understand choices and costs of different options. They used partners/contractors in country who were very reliable. Hotels and transit were excellent

The trek was fab, really enjoyed it! Was definitely a challenge but one worth doing. Our Guide Mohammed was excellent, took care of our needs, patient and went at a suitable pace for us. Ali, the muleteer and cook made us the most remarkable dishes and such large quantities, we felt bad for leaving so much food.....was enough for six people or more.
The refuges provided us a great place to stay....the first one was very quiet only another couple staying there, whilst the next was much busier and was a fab way to meet new people.
We were really pleased we made it to the summit, it felt like a great achievement.
I don’t think I would change any part of it.
Thank you, to you and your partners in Morrcco, will recommend you to anyone who wishes to follow in my footsteps.
Louise Davis reviewing Climb Mount Toubkal on 29 August 2018
Morocco is quite simply, an incredible trekking destination. The Atlas Mountains host several 4,000m+ peaks and the mountain landscape is dramatic and beautiful, dotted with ancient small Berber villages and rushing melt water streams.
The geography of Morocco is dominated by the High Atlas Mountains which form a rift through Central Morocco. The Atlas Mountains present a enticing combination of verdant valleys, arid peaks, fascinating Berber villages and virtually deserted trails. The main attractions for trekking Morocco are Toubkal, from Marrakesh, the valleys and villages of the Azzaden and Dk'nt valleys and the delightful off-the-beaten track M'goun Massif.
One of the premier highlights of a walking holiday in Morocco is climbing Jbel Toubkal, the highest peak in North Africa at 4,167m. Covered in snow in the winter months, the altitude of Toubkal is a welcome respite from the high summer temperatures in the Atlas valleys. The trek up Toubkal is fairly strenuous but is accessible for most fit hill walkers. The hard work is worth it as the view from the top of Toubkal is out of this world encompassing the Marrakesh plain, the northern parts of the High Atlas and Sahara. Toubkal is only a couple of hours drive from Marrakesh. By contrast, the M'goun Massif offers superb off the beaten path trekking in Morocco. Featuring spectacular lush valleys and rich in ancient Berber villages such as Megdaz, perhaps one of the finest Berber villages in the High Atlas Mountains.
Other highlights of trekking in Morocco include the Rif Mountains, barely explored by travellers and offering gentler hiking and magnificent cedar forests. Trekking in Morocco isn't just about the walking either, the area is rich in cultural history, the Berbers are a proud people who have fiercely guarded their independence and culture over the years, and are famous for their hospitality. Food consists primarily of cous cous, tagines and brochettes (kebabs) blending elements of Berber cuisine Arab spices and Spanish ingredients.
All of our trekking tours in Morocco include the services of a guide, chef and mules to carry your packs and we use local Moroccan Mountain guides to offer you a more authentic experience.
