A quick report on the trip: All made it to the summit of Toubkal - a fantastic time, great weather. The kids loved Marrakech and the Souks. I can't speak highly enough of our guide, Steve who was fantastic - passionate about the Mountains and Morocco in particular; he got the balance right between being patient with the kids and giving them a no-nonsense rocket when necessary. Regards to all at KE and many thanks for all your organisation on our behalf.

This trip was even better than I expected. We had perfect weather conditions for the ascent of Toubkal, so that was the highlight. The quality of the food was far beyond my expectations, both in Marrakech and in the mountains. The local guide was brilliant. The travel arrangements were smooth and clearly well-arranged.Mustapha, our local guide in Morocco, was superb. We couldn't have asked for a more personable, knowledgeable and careful guide to look after our school party. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He interacted very well with all members of the team.
