Fantastic 7 Days tour from Tangier to Marrakech
After a late pick-up due to some confusion at the hotel reception, we were driven to our destination.
The on-site team was welcoming, efficient, and even had iPads with WIFI (in the desert!).
The entire booking and registration process is very smooth and the security equipment is in good working order.
Zak was attentive and helped my newbie GF learn to ride a quad and even rode in tandem with her to make sure she and the rest of the small group (4 of us in total) kept to a reasonable riding pace and we could enjoy the experience to the fullest.
The views were incredible, the snow-capped Atlas Mountains as a backdrop were simply breathtaking.
We stopped for tea and pancakes with a local agent, who even brought one of her children to meet strange people!
The photography team was excellent and not overly pushy at the end of the day to offer photos for sale that had no negative value at all.
Overall a great stay would definitely do it again and recommend anyone of any age to give it a try.
