Morocco 2018 - trip advice

Planning a trip into Morocco at Easter for 7 - 10 days; ideally looking for off road/cultural trip where we can use the Land Rover to enjoy the real, hard to find Morocco.

Not looking for the full 4x4 driving holiday as want to stop and experience the sights.

So..... does anybody know of any guides/guided tours etc... that fit the bill?

Any help/advice appreciated.[/b] Beware the lollipop of mediocrity……. one lick and you suck forever!

We are going at the time of year with ProTrax. Might be too rigid/structured for you, though, fixed itinerary, and a fairly large group I think. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

We had a motivational speaker come to work recently, he's blind, and ran it a few years ago. I was wincing when he described the state fo his feet. All respect to you. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

watching with interest SimonJ as we've talked about Morocco a few times recently and we'd not be looking to do any hard core 4x4 but as you've suggested more sights and culture. High on the priority list would be safety of course.

Thumbs Up

Steve E - I'll try and make sure there's a spare beer in the fridge should our paths cross. Mr. Green

Sounds like the sort of trip Atlas Overland offer. I’ve been on several of Pete’s trips and always been a really good balance. Don’t know about spaces as his trips normally fill well in advance.
