What should you look for in a tour operator?
- Reliability: are they comfortable trekking in Morocco and do they know it like the back of their hand, and are they well prepared if the trip doesn't go according to plan? When hiking, canoeing or mountaineering, you want to be sure you're in expert hands so make sure you choose a highly recommended tour operator.
- Expertise: the ideal tour guide has local insight, language skills and the enthusiasm to spice up and adventure holiday. With expert help you can find the craic in Ireland or scale the peaks safely on a Kilimanjaro climb.
- Eco-friendly: a tour package should help you experience a destination while minimising any negative impact. A good tour operator will be hapy to answer your questions about environmental concerns and cultural sensitivity.
