Overview

Book
Combining the magical city of Marrakech, with time on the beach, walking with camels and discovering the pirate city of Essaouira this is an excellent short introduction to the fun and colourful country of Morocco. Families are always welcomed with open arms by the warm and friendly people everywhere you go. Starting in Marrakech from our hotel with a pool we travel to the coastal village of Sidi Kaouki where we have two nights at a guesthouse with pool and sea views. From here we enjoy walks along the beach with camel support before we pack our bags on the camels and head out for an exciting overnight camp in the sand dunes to watch the starry night sky. The afternoons are free for paddling, beachcombing, beach games, an optional surf lesson or simply for relaxing. This stretch of the Atlantic is wild, dramatic, remote and beautiful. Onto walled city of Essaouira where old cannons still point out to sea (true pirate style), we find a wealth of shops and souks, and a sandy beach famous for wind and kite surfing. The last night of the holiday is spent in Marrakech were we can walk in the main square Djemaa el Fna, watching the children delight at the fascinating mix of dancers, music, storytellers and food stalls which are found here. This holiday truly captures the essence of Morocco and allows parents and children alike to have an active and culturally rich time away.

Being on the coast was the best for us. William enjoyed riding a camel at every opportunity and our daughter Elizabeth enjoyed the souks in Marrakech once she got the feel for it. Seeing Marrakech and Essouira 20 years after I last went there was most interesting as well.

We enjoyed most the lunch at the Berber house, the Marrekech guided tour and the remote beaches. We had a brilliant time with a super crew who really looked after us.

Brahim, our guide, was amazing, he rolled with all the punches and was always making the needs and safety of the children his priority, and of course the adults too. We felt 100 percent safe with Brahim and would not hesitate to recommend him to others. This was a great adventure for all of us.

Our leader, Mohamed Idali was absolutely fantastic. He was always happy, very friendly and entertaining, ready to answer all our questions and joking and laughing with us, our children, and the crew. I think he did much more to make sure that everybody was happy, than his job requires, he was the most excellent host. We do miss seeing his kind and happy face already. We really enjoyed this holiday, we loved the company of our fellow travellers and the trek crew, actually I would be happy to go back tomorrow and do it all over again, if I could. Excellent. My children, Rachel 12 and Hanna 11, loved the trip so much, that the were actually quite sad to be coming home. They had a lot of fun, loved riding the camels, loved the camping, and of course Mohamed.

Mohammed Idali was the 'star of the show' and turned a good holiday into an excelent one. His manner throughout was exceptional; he was always very informative and gauged our group very well. He was excellent with our children (who thought he was 'so cool') and nothing was ever too much trouble for him. Well organised and led. The scenery was outstanding with the option to swim every day in the sea at the end of a hot day's walking. The camels gave the trip an 'exotic' flavour. The in-country team were all first class. The Essouira day is a good cap to the walking part. Seeing the culture for the children (including some of the less attractive bits) was a great education for them.

We most enjoyed the unspoilt coastal scenery, trekking with camels, white-water rafting (add-on) adn the company of other families and children of similar ages to our son. The walking was a little longer than expected and the facilities a bit more basic than anticipated. Hamid (our guide) was fantastic wtih the children. He engaged with them and seemed to genuinely enjoy being with them.

Mohamed did a great job of leader in a respects - from the day-to-day logistics of operating a trek to the care of the group and support staff. Everything seemed to run smoothly and service impeccable . Mohamed was super good with the kids, playful and eager to amuse them and always present to converse with the adults. Our four-person trekking crew worked together in performing their own duties and helping each other to get the job done as well as being friendly with the clients and the children. I felt the length of the 5-day trek and the length of each walking day perfect for the age group. Walking was nicely broken up with plenty of playtime in th e water to keep the kids cool and delighted.

The week was an experience that myself and my two sons will remember forever. We met some truly wonderful people and had experiences that we would never have had outside of a KE holiday. The local moroccan people are lovely and we really enjoyed living in a musilm country for the eight days. I'm glad the trek went wrong because the experiences we had as a result of the rain were awesome. (But we were really enjoying the trekking and camping too.) Hamid ensured that despite the rain, we had fun.I enjoyed the mix between camping and hotels: the friendliness and company of Hamid and his team: the country with its ethos and beauty: Marrakech,the guided tour and the extra day to explore by ourselves: the beautiful beaches and long walks: the camels: the music and dancing by Hamid and his team to cheer us up in the rain: the ease by which they made a Moroccan adventure possible and safe.I expected it to be good, but it was outstanding. we lived through experiences that we will remember forever. THANKYOU I felt completely supported by all the correspondence and the telephone calls before the holiday. The pre-trip information was extremely accurate and very useful. I can't give enough praise for Hamid and his team. They were brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! The rain changed the programme but Hamid and his team made it the best week ever!!
