Our adventure starts with a spectacular drive from Ouarzazate, passing old kasbahs and Berber villages. We stop at the incredible walled city of Ait Benhaddou before continuing over the High Atlas Mountains to bustling, fascinating Marrakech. We stay in an historic riad, an ornately-decorated traditional Moroccan house set around a courtyard garden. A haven of calm amidst the old city, it offers a perfect place to relax and soak up the sunshine from its rooftop terrace, only a stone’s throw from the bustle of the souks.
The souks are crammed with fascinating sights, and you can haggle for everything from leather goods and shoes to spices and argan oil. Soak up the buzz in the Jma el Fnaa, Marrakech’s huge main square, with its food-stalls, musicians, street-performers and snake-charmers, or just sit back in one of the many cafes and enjoy the cultural flavour. A guided city tour is included to get you started – then explore and shop to your heart’s content!

As a middle aged, overweight woman, I always doubt my own ability but have been inspired and encouraged by everyone I have come into contact with at DA, in particular Kev Dibble & Heidi who I met last year in China. I will continue to challenge myself & look forward to the next trek!

I enjoyed the whole experience immensely. Despite having pre-trek nervesI knew I would be ok as soon as I met the team. It gave me confidence to undertake another adventure holiday in the future.

A brilliant experience all round! But the highlight for me was to see how the local team, 'Ashante tours' operated. From start to finish they were super professional. Massive respect for those guys and our DA leader, Jo and Ed the Med. What a great team!
