5-day trek in Jebel M'goun area including the M'goun gorges Reviews

Completely lived up to our expectations..

We loved our vacation in Morocco.  The trek completely lived up to our expectations and  the third day in the gorge exceeded them.  The accommodation was very comfortable, the food was fresh and healthy and, considering the circumstances, very well prepared.  However, what made the trip was how knowledgeable, professional and friendly our guide Abdellah Allali was, we cannot rate him highly enough.  In fact, the whole support team were excellent.
