KE website particularly user-friendly and easy to navigate, staff always willing to help.
I cannot fault the services of Hassan, our trip leader. A great level of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm. The solitude of having the trails to ourselves, the variety of landscape we passed through each day and the opportunities to interact with local villagers along the route.
I was looking for a last-minute booking to indulge my sense of adventure, without having to organise it myself. I am already booked onto to a KE trip in March next year.

Thoroughly enjoyed my trip which was down to the high quality of the support staff and the eclectic mix of fellow travellers.
I most enjoyed the opportunity to travel to a part of the world that I would never have visited under my own steam, and understand the history and current changes affecting the peoples we met travelling through this unspoilt part of the world.

What I most enjoyed - The friendliness of the muleteers but most of all Hassan's conversation - very informative and pleasant. Having tea in our chief muleteer's tent (a nomad) was so nice - felt genuinely welcomed.All Hassan the cook's meals were very good. The scenery was amazing especially the occasional fertile grove and the rock formations.

A really interesting and very enjoyable trek. The food was excellent. The pace was good. The high altitude valley walking days were fantastic. The route, taking in non-tourist areas, and passing villages and people carrying on their daily lives was really interesting. The hotel for the last night of trekking was a great idea.

Mohammed and Hamid were excellent leaders, always attentive to needs, patient, good-humoured. They inspired complete confidence, and were very good company. One could not have asked for better. Things I most enjoyed:- The mountain landscape was like nothing I've seen before; the evidence in the formations of geological activity quite spectacular. The insight into the lives of the local people, their agriculture, the labour and skill required to live in such a harsh environment. The opportunity to spend time camping with Berber muleteers, to glimpse the nature of their lives, culture - great singers round the camp fire! The food! Such variety of salads and tagines - all beautifully presented. Exploring Marrakech, including a hammam visit!

Immensely enjoyable. Highly Memorable. Great Value for Money. Excellent tour group. Enchanting support crew, cook and trek leader. SUPERB and one that will stay in the memory long, hard and very toasty. SUBLIME! ALL expectations were surpassed. This was a superbly planned, run and executed trekking holiday. AWESOME Stuff!

I have travelled alot with other adventure companys, but this has been the first time that I have travelled with KE, and I have to say that overall they have been excellent in every way and that they will be my first choice for future trips.

What I enjoyed the most - Getting to understand the semi-nomadic way of life and environment. Appreciating the village life, enhanced by Hassan's (The guide) description of his own life as a farmer. Ascents giving views of High Atlas and Sahara, Bou Gafer and the colonial history, the birdlife.

I had an excellent holiday, and managed the walk very well, even though I tripped up over the rocks and bruised my shin. My first experience and in retrospect the description of the trek was very honest.
Hassan (the guide) was very knowledgeable about his country and happy to talk and answer all our questions every night. This made our holiday very interesting and put the country and the people all in context-brilliant. He was excellent and funny too.
I Most enjoyed the views, the pace of Hassan - not too fast! Hassan Ait Brahim chatting with us in the evening and joining in to tell us about the country was a real highlight.

Very impressed with how organised KE are both in the UK and on the trek. Our support crew were very good in getting the camp set up before we arrived there and preparing our meals.
