The whole crew on this trek were excellent. But i think Mohamed Idali deserves special commendation. He is a really genuinely nice guy , who's cheerful and positive nature would lift anyone's spirits. But equally impressive was his skills as a mountain leader. Not just knowing the trails , but being able to pace the group from the front , to the speed of the slowest that might b at the back.
The camaraderie with the other Trekkers in our group and with the trekking crew. The technical grading was right for the whole group. We had chosen a trek that was a challenge without leaving us saw and exhausted (except the last day )
The weather was beautiful. Sunny and warm most days. Clouding over in the afternoon while in the mountains. What a relief . Some times a little rain.Food was great too. Fresh and flavourful.

I most enjoyed the views and the isolation of the wild camping, walking through the local villages. The highlight was reaching the summit of Toubkal.
We chose KE because it offered exactly what we wanted at a reasonable price.

I would highly recommend Moustapha as a trip leader any time. He is extremely capable, welcoming and very attentive to the mood and well-being of the group - both the group as a whole and the individual members of the group. I hope this praise makes it all the way to him!

What I most enjoyed? The trekking especially summit day. Good food. Good company.

Our local leader, Hussein was extremely friendly and helpful to all. We all commented on how he looked after all of us. I most enjoyed trekking with other people on the trip - they were very friendly, and we all gelled right from the start. Care was taken to ensure everybody was capable of doing the route and given every encouragement when they displayed hesitation about their limitations. I had been to Morocco before and knew what to expect in terms of landscape but was impressed by the route taken even if it was a standard route. Food was amazing considering where we were! My friend and I had already decided we were going to Morocco this year to climb Toubkal and searched on line for the "right" trip for us. KE gave us all we were looking for.

Nothing too much trouble. Everyone I spoke to was helpful & knowledgeable & well informed. They obviously knew the answers from personal experience & didn't need to consult with anyone so I got the information I needed instantly.
Probably the best holiday I've ever had. I found the trek & climb hard enough to give me a real feeling of having achieved something without being overstretched. The group was friendly & everyone got on. The leader & all the support (cook & muleteers) were friendly, joined in & became part of the group and were fun to be with. A fantastic time from start to finish.
The whole thing really but apart from summiting Toubkal a couple of nights camping stand out - one night's camping near a river which was idyllic and the night we camped in the gorge leading up and away from Lake Ifni. Swimming in Lake Ifni surrounded by mountains was also a spectacular and unforgettable experience.
