My Review

Excellent day trip from Marrakech. I really enjoyed the landscape and the photo opportunities we had. Travelling in February during the winter was a plus as the top of the mountains were covered with snow. The lunch was AMAZING. I think the tour is very expensive, not sure I would do it if I was on a budget even more after adding the extras, such as lunch, lake visit and guide to the waterfall. However, it was an amazing experience and they were very flexible with our arrangements.

My Review

I am giving 3 stars for a very simple reason: there is nothing special about this tour. If you are on a budget, do it yourself. You can easily plan your itinerary and spend much less with entrance fees. If you are busy and cannot plan your trip, then go for it. I wasnt happy with the fact that they picked us up from a location which was the starting point of the tour, took us by bus to a hotel where we waited 30 minutes to later go back to the same place. No idea why this was organised this way. We could have slept 30 minutes more and met the guide there. Anyway, the tour was well organised and despite reading many bad reviews about the guide talking about his religion, I think that actually this was a positive thing. I really enjoyed listening to his views of the ways people in Morocco and Marrakech live. It doesnt matter whether I agree or not, I was there to learn new cultures and see how people live there. Extremely happy with our guide, who was also funny and friendly. Lunch was also very good.
I didnt like the visit to the pharmacy, but apparently everyone else in the tour did. It was a big group with around 30 people.

I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone. Just bear in mind it is a very long day and the return trip is painful. The highlight of the trip was Ait Benhaddou, but also the landscape and the several photo stops we had in our way there. In February the photos look amazing with the mountains covered with snow. If you dont mind the long drive you wont regret it.

My Review

It all started with a stop in a local market. This was a nice and informative stop. We then went to a farm where we did a ride on a cart pulled by oxen. Nothing special here, but still very different and a lot of fun. The owner of the farm was guiding the oxen and he was very friendly, tried to communicate with us, even though he couldn't speak English. We then went to the open-kitchen where the owner himself and a woman cooked in front of us some traditional Thai good. That was a unique experience and the food was excellent. We could also help a little bit (mainly for photos), but they were the ones doing the cooking. Perfect lunch!!! Arriving at Khao Yai we went to see a waterfall (quick stop) and also saw some monkeys while driving. Unfortunately the time inside the park was very short, but I don't think it's possible to accommodate all these activities in only 1 day. We then did an elephant trek. This was great (my first elephant trek), but I felt the elephants were not very happy and I was also shocked to see that the keepers had a very dangerous and "evil" hook to hurt the elephants. At least they didn't use that while we were there. Highly recommended, but note this is a relaxing tour, you won't have a lot to walk and exercise, but still worth doing. I enjoyed the elephant trek as it was my first one, but later during my trip I went to an elephant park in Chiang Mai where the elephants do only what they want (except when they are forced to carry us on top of them, but still, the keepers didn't have any hook to hurt them) and no seat on top of the elephants, as they did in Khao Yai (which obviously is not natural and I believe they keep it on the elephants all day). Not the perfect elephant experience, but having said that, I'm really glad I did it and would definitely recommend.

The weather wasn't great and it was almost winter so the cruise was replaced by an "average" lunch. The restaurant seemed good, but the food was very basic. Still, it was a good experience though. The tour was good, I managed to take nice photos, but I believe this is a MUST DO tour when the weather is good and when the cruise is available. I'm giving 4 stars (which is very good by the way) just because I believe it is better with the cruise, when it should be definitely a 5 star tour.

My Review

The stop in France was good, nice landscape and views but nothing really special. The stop in Span was fine as well. Andorra is a shopping paradise (I didn't look at anything as it's not my thing), but if you walk around the very small capital you can see a few different scenes and take some nice photos. The tour guide was offering a "hiking" option after lunch, which I was the only one to accept. It was actually a short van ride to the top of the hill where there was a lake. The guide also stopped in the way down where you have beautiful views of the capital. In summary, the purpose of this tour for me was to cross Andorra from my list, but by having the extra stops in Spain and France and also by having the short ride to the viewpoint in Andorra this made the tour 5 stars.
