This was my first foray into leading tours, for this short-lived company, driving a 15 seat minibus through France and Spain to spend two weeks travelling in Morocco, of which I knew nothing. Our journeys took us from the Spanish enclave of Ceuta, through the hashish growing areas of Ketama and the Rif, the imperial city of Fez with its stunning medina, then over the Atlas ramparts to explore the northern fringes of the Sahara, following river valleys draining from the mountains into the sands.
We slept in lush oases, among dunes, and clambered into the Todra and Dades gorges before recrossing the Atlas to the tumult of Marrakesh. Our journey then took us through Casablanca and Rabat to the small town of Asilah before resuming our drive home through Europe.
