What people say - Thank you very much for the caring, guiding hands you gave to our walking and camping on the trek. You and Mohamed did wonders with bringing us all together as a group and making the trek so very enjoyable, given some of us not being young and agile. S.G. Morocco Atlantic Coast Trek 2015. What a great holiday - it was a privilege to share it with you. C.B. Morocco Atlantic Coast trek 2013. Our Moroccan guides were excellent, and the tone – curiosity, flexibility, personal responsibility, openness, mutual kindness - was set by Paul and Fiona. I had a really good time J.A. 2012. Thank you for a wonderful trek in Morocco. Good food, music, camp fires, fab walking, good company, beautiful landscape - what more can life offer? A.N. 2013. A fabulous experience … it was a brilliant holiday! C.B. 2016

"When you walk, you are in touch with the earth, with nature, the wasps, the insects, everything. In a car or a train or a plane, you are disconnected. You walk to connect yourself." — Satish Kumar
