We took a Nature tour put together by Spainbirds to the Atlas and deserts region. At the end of it we had two extra days in Marrakesh. Full details of the Spainbirds tour can be seen here

The information to prepare us for our trip received from Spainbirds was very good. It told us clearly what kind of temperatures to prepare for and there were five pages of traveller information provided both by PDF ahead of time, and printed in a book on arrival.

Our guide for the whole trip was John Muddeman - a very knowledgeable guide who made the trip the success it was
