Price per person (inc deposit)


We had a fantastic trip, guided by Lahcen throughout. He was highly professional and always attentive to our individual preferences. He worked extremely hard to make sure each member of the team had an amazing experience. I would love to do another trek in Morocco and wouldn’t hesitate to go with Lahcen again. He was also very encouraging during the challenging parts of the climb and ensured we were safe at all times. The assistant guide, Mohammed, was also great as was the cook Hussain and the team of muleteers. | Jess
