Wow, where can I start - we have just come back from a wild seven days in the Sahara desert. The tour took us right into the desert and followed paths leading to lush palm plantations of oasis. Our host Abdel was excellent both in character and manners as well as very informed about the region. Good point is they are very much into conservation of the region and preserving their culture whilst entertaining and educating tourists about the berber and nomad life.
Would highly recommend this tour.

What can we say? The trip with these guys was fantastic! We did five days in the Sahara desert and it's something you must do once in your life. We spent the next four days doing some day tours: quad biking and day tours into the ourika valley. Will highly recommend the experiences!
For tailor-made trips to Morocco, I highly recommend Mountain Voyage Morocco and in particular their Marrakesh representative Rachid. From an initial enquiry, Rachid designed a wonderful trip for us including beautiful accommodation in Marrakesh, a car and driver (Amin seems to know everyone in Morocco) to take us over the Tichka Pass, staying in a Berber encampment, camel riding in the dunes, walking in the Todra Gorges and returning to Marrakesh via Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou. All this was calmly, efficiently and economically handled by Rachid despite our having to cancel our original booking because of the pre-Christmas snow in the UK -- everything was re-arranged at no additional cost, and I can't imagine getting better treatment anywhere.
This is a fantastic little mountain biking company that leads independent trips through the high Atlas Mountains.
The main guide has spent years running trips in this area and as such introduces you to little-known single tracks and beautiful vistas - plus, because it's pretty free and easy you may find yourself on a unique little adventure!
They work with independent local tour companies and accommodation consists of traditional Berber-style village houses, meaning that you get a real slice of local life.
The trails are beautiful, the life simple and the experience of breaking away from all the other big-style travel companies is quite irreplaceable.
