This was a fantastic, really very well organised trip. The roads in Morocco are amazing and in really good condition, not at all what I expected. Perfect for cycling.
Climbing the Tiz an Test Pass. What a fabulous ride up and down with all the switch back bends.
John, was a great leader, he kept an eye on everybody and just let everybody go at there own speed, which was great.
Make sure you take some warm clothes as it can be cold up in the mountains. Morocco is mostly dry (no alcohol), but your leader will usually buy a small amount of booze for those who need it.
If you like a challenge and the hills, this trip is perfect for you. I am quite a slow rider up and down so I just plod along and I love to stop and look at the scenery which was amazing.
An excellent trip, demanding climbs followed by exhilerating descents coupled with stunning scenery all around.
Those long twisting descents just made you feel so alive.
The personal acheivement of getting to the top of the climbs.
Jon and Radu were just great, a super team.
Go for this trip if you like a challenge. The climbs are long but not too intense and the end rewards are many.
Worth every ounce of effort. The scenery is stunning and Morocco is just fabulous.
If you are thinking of this trip then go do it. The memories will last for ever.
Beautiful and varied trip with stunning landscapes, villages, mountains, sea and cities.
Climbing 1200 metres up to Immouzer and finding stunning views from the hotel at the end.
Our group leader, John Hobson - with Radu, abling assisting, and sometimes taking lead - was great. He was always polite, professional, enthusiastic, organised, knowledgable and patient.
This trip is moderate to challenging, and the challenging parts can be quite tough, so be prepared. The weather can change considerably from the cities and valleys to the mountains, so you may need warm clothing as well as summer clothing (and lots of sun cream). The hotels were all adequate, and some were very good, but you'll need your own shampoo and shower gel in most of them.
Be careful taking photos of locals. Many don't like it and can become quite aggressive (even if you only look like you're taking them, but actually aren't, or if they just happen to be in a shot when you're taking a picture of a street or building). Speaking French is a bonus. It's spoken more widely and better than English.
‘In-country’ bike hire should be arranged at the time of booking, and the cost will be added to your invoice. Please note that there are a limited number of bikes available locally. We always have to match a person's height to the bike frame size and, as there are a limited amount of each size, we cannot always guarantee availability of the correct frame. Therefore it is recommended you add the local bike hire as early as possible.

Morocco is opening up more and more to mainstream tourism due to increasing coverage from airlines, which has improved the general standard of accommodation in some areas while other areas are still catching up so please be prepared for a variety of accommodation, from quite basic to very comfortable.
All the hotels we use are clean and functional although the rooms and facilities may be basic and limited and the breakfasts simple. On Day 3 we stay in a beautiful Riad where we can pick our own fruit directly from the tree and enjoy a swim in the pool. Two other hotels over the week also have swimming pools.

Moroccan cuisine is very diverse, with many influeneces due to the interaction of Morocco with the outside world for centuries. The cuisine of Morocco is a mix of Berber, Moorish, Mediterranean and Arab influences. The main Moroccan dish most people are familiar with is couscous, usually eaten with beef or lamb. Chicken is also very common and the importance of seafood is increasing, especially on the coast. Vegetarians won't have any problems either, although choice can be more limited in remote locations.
The common and tasty tajine is everywhere, a mouth watering stew with meat and vegetables. Green tea with mint is the drink of choice, and you can pick up bocadillos (sandwiches) from street stalls everywhere - you won't go hungry!

No, a quality local hire bike is included in the overall price of this cycling holiday.
If you prefer the familiarity of your own bike, you may of course bring it along. A discount of GBP90 will apply if you do so.
The Moroccan currency is the Dirham and cannot be imported or exported, as it is a 'closed' currency. We suggest you take your personal spending money in good condition notes, either in £, Euros or US$. Local costs - it depends! - £2-4 per day to cover postcards, small souvenirs, soft drinks etc; £15 a day for food is fine (if it's not included).

You are visiting a predominantly Muslim country, therefore you should dress modestly at all times when visiting cultural sites, and there may also be times when you are asked to 'cover up'. During your trip the tour leader will always advise you on appropriate dress for each day's activities.
If you are asked to 'cover up', you'll need to cover your shoulders, arms and legs. We recommend packing lightweight trousers or a long skirt, and a long sleeved shirt. Women may also be required to cover their hair with a scarf if entering a mosque or religious quarters.
