Excellent trip, with great organisation as usual from Private-marrakech-day-trips. Was met at the airport by my guide who stayed with us for the whole trip until we were dropped off at the airport to come home. Hotel in Marrakesh was great, and the accommodation and the food on the trek were excellent. Will definitely travel with PMDT again
