The pick-up at the riad went very well. The guide with a good knowledge of German and a confident driving style. The return journey from Ouarzazate to Marrakech turned out to be somewhat difficult; the Tizi n'Tichka Pass was temporarily closed due to snowfall and landslides. Our Mohammed took a side street, fought his way through debris avalanches and rivers pouring over the road and over the snow-covered slide at the top of the pass. Since the road had been completely torn away further down, he stopped in a rest house to wait. We were well catered for and kept informed. Since there was no getting through in any direction, Mohammed organized an overnight stay with a Berber family with lots of pillows and blankets and even breakfast. About 20 tourists were able to spend a very comfortable night in the (unheated) house, protected from the snowstorms. Mohammed took great care of us and brought us back on time for the return flight!
Experience was great as well as our guide Mohamed. The only issue we faced was realated to the hotel. As per email and agreements we were expecting one hotel while, just before the check in, they informed us that it was fully booked, so they booked a different one ... that was crapy (seriously!) I refuse myself to stay there and the agency was lovely to find a different (and much better!) solution.
It was fantastic and our driver guide Salmi was wonderful. It would assist if travellers understood that they can set their own itinerary before the trip starts.
Punctual pickup at the hotel Good and safe driver Friendly and open guide with good knowledge of German Very recommendable excursion
Great day trip with a very pleasant guide. Despite a very long drive, a varied experience with great impressions.
