A Thrilling Canyoning Adventure

We had a great time on our canyoning trip. Jonathan was very professional, helpful and skilled. We only wish our adventure was longer. After having spent so much time in the desert getting in the water was a welcomed and refreshing change of pace. The canyon was beautiful. I would highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys a unique adventure and physical challenge.Thank you for this feed back.It was a pleasure!Take care.

BEST experience EVER

We booked a trip in the Sahara desert and it was the best experience of our lives. We left the hotel around 5 om in the evening, we rode the camel for about 1hour and a half (+ one stop to watch the sunset - which was by far the best view ever) and the we arrived at the camp. The boys served as dinner and after that we made a camp fire. We were all singing, dancing and having the time of our lives. They were so kind and friendly, it felt like we knew them for a lifetime. Around 10.30 they took us to the dunes to just lay on the ground and watch the stars. It was so peaceful and quiet that I would have stayed there for days if possible. After that we all went to bed and woke up at 6 am to go back to the hotel. We stopped again to see the sunrise which was absolutely breathtaking. I strongly recommend Welcome to Morocco Tours! The emplyees are very very friendly and well informed and most importantly, so much fun. + they speak at least 5 different languages which is impresive.

Abdeslam Maachou - an excellent guide

Abdeslam was a guide for my wife and I for four days of trekking in the High Atlas mountains. He was good company, always with a smile and a reassuring word. He is knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and helped us to spot a wide range of birds including a little owl and a golden eagle. He explained the social structures and challenges the local people faced sensitively and helped us understand more of the local culture.Abdeslam was clear about how we should tackle the occasional treacherous patch on the path (we were at the edge of the extent of the snow), and generally looked after us well, making sure we were well fed and with enough clean water. Abdeslam has a great range of contacts in the Imlil valley– our excellent cook was a personal friend of his, and he was on good terms with so many of the people we met. He was very charming and informative but also understood that there were times when we just wanted to absorb the immense landscape in silence. I would thoroughly recommend Abdeslam as a guide.Ian Rogers
