I had several questions before our departure, and the KE staff answered each one quickly so I was impressed with the attention I given and the ease with which my logistics were handled. On the trip our guide Hamed was wonderful. He was very kind to the children and shared interesting facts at many points during the holiday. He was also very capable and efficient. We were in good hands. The remoteness of the different camp spots and the journey's to each, camping under the stars, drinking Moroccan tea, eating the delicious food prepared by our camp chef, getting to know our travelmates and encountering local people along the way. There were great opportunities for the adults to stay up a bit passed dinner. Playing cards, games or discussing local culture and traditions. The landscape was not at all what I expected. Nor did I expect to walk for hours without seeing a person other than the people associated with our trip. I did an internet search and came upon KE Adventures. We have 2 children (9&11), and there were several great options for family travel. I then compared the trips with those from another site, and KE Adventures suited our family best. And you've received many positive reviews online. Amazing. I would travel with KE again. We absolutely loved the trip and will recommend it to others.

Mohamed (our guide) was fantastic with the children and nothing was too much trouble for him or the rest of the crew. Meals were amazing and cleanliness was of a high standard in the most desolate of places.
We most enjoyed experiencing the culture and way of life of the local people. The chance to be away from hustle and bustle of normal life with our family.
Fantastic holiday which has got us already looking for our next trip ....and we only arrived back last night .

Everything was well described, we got exactly what the brochure/website said we would.Very roomy hotel accommodation as we used an Apart-Hotel in Marrakech, which meant we had plenty of room to unpack/pack with 3 in a room. Tents for two were fine on trek. Then the 'fixed' camp on the last night in the desert was great fun, the mini chalets were roomy and comfortable. The crew cooked very good meals, lunch particularly was very well presented bearing in mind the conditions under which they had to prepare it, also we are vegetarians, and there was never a problem in this respect. All transport arrived on time and the vehicles were roomy and in good condition (with seat belts).Mohamed was great, very patient, treated the 9 kids very well, spoke excellent French and English so all clients knew what was going on and when, where we were going, what we would see etc.

Very well organised, with all members of the trekking party doing a fabulous job. Mohamed was brilliant with the kids and really made the trip. The food was exceptional and the "camel man" was also great with the kids.I most enjoyed, the scenery, not having to cook, feeling the kids were completely safe with the crew, travelling with French families.

The trip surpassed our expectations. Fantastic support crew , fantastic food . All friendly and good fun . Nothing was too much trouble. Excellent iteneray. Riad Alladin was wonderful. Will be returning there at some point. We most enjoyed being away from civilisation, amazing sites, transfers to and from airport / hotels as I had not been to Marrakech before, the impact it had on my children who said they would be bored back at home plus my son bonded with one of the young camel drivers and their different lifestyles made a big impact on him.

Exceeded expectations - the trip was excellent, the final night in the Berber tents was magical. The trek took in different aspects each day and the landscape each day changed. The food was great -good quality and plenty of it! The experience was great, local knowledge of guide was great. Joining with the french families gave the holiday an extra twist, with the bonus of improving our French.

I enjoyed being with French and English families, the trek and the children loved riding the camels. We really appreciated the unique nature of travelling with French families and would certainly be interested in travelling with such families on another trip. My wife and I were talking about the many holidays/trips that we have done in our lives. We came up with our top three, all were with KE.

Our local guide, Mohammed, was calm friendly and informative. Very well done! The kids had fun, we will take them on another cultural experience next year. The contact with the locals, guide and support crew was great and the three families also hit it off. We loved sleeping outside the tent on the sand dunes watching the stars and enjoyed the quietness and beauty of the surroundings.
