Two Continents -Independent travellers

We would like to thank you for the excellent preparation for our trip. Everything was well-organised and we enjoyed all our resting places in both Spain and Morocco and had some excellent meals – particularly with your friends in Tarifa and the lunch stops at Mechkralla and on the walk en route to Fez. We were very pleased with our guides – particularly Ben in Tangier, Mustafa in Chaouen and then Abdeslam on the way to Fez. Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoyed walking, travelling and eating with you on the Spanish leg! We have each come back with our own memories but agree it was a really good experience. The walks were lovely and we met some interesting characters. We came away from Morocco with such mixed feelings. I guess we have spent little time in parts of the world were there is such poverty alongside the wealth of the few. There is a part of me that feels we were just voyeurs, but on the other hand, we were able to put something into the economy and hopefully expressed our delight at the beauty we saw and thereby helped people feel proud of their own country. Anyway, thank you once more for organising this holiday for us. We will certainly recommend you anyone we meet who is thinking of doing something similar and we may well be back some time!

We had a great time on our Granada to Fes self guided trip. The Spanish arrangements were well set out, the self-guided walks, the times, the bus and train tickets and so on. The hotels were all very good. It was an amazing experience being in Granada for the Semana Santa, walking home to our little cave apartment in the dark. When we got off the ferry at Tangier, we were well looked after for the remainder of our trip. Our guides were excellent and we really felt well supported throughout. Abdeslam is passionately interested in supporting the local communities and developing ecotourism and is a fount of knowledge of all aspects of North Moroccan culture. We felt we had a real adventure, without ever being out of our comfort zone. Thanks for everything, we’d certainly recommend Spanish Steps to others! Sue and Mike (Cumbria) Granada to Fes 
We had a wonderful time and your arrangements were superb. Bit hot for walking much of course but not a problem. I’d keep doing the same thing. Our French was useful in Fes which was great. Loved the Hotel Continental by the way in Tangier. Thanks for everything. Nancy and daughter Ana (Australia). Two Continents 
We would both recommend the Two Continents trip to experience a totally different culture than we’re used to in Europe. The Moroccan food was excellent throughout which we admit was a real surprise to us, really tasty and filling. The accommodation in Chefchaouen, Fes and Marrakech were excellent, way beyond what we expected. The Hotel in Tarifa is in a great location and we had a good time while we were there. If we’d known what Tarifa was like we would have booked to stay an extra night at the beginning of the trip. The food in Paco’s was excellent and the coastal walk was lovely. Casa Hassan has got to be the best hotel in Chefchaouen, both Debi and I were amazed with our room. The decor/layout and location of the hotel was great, as were the staff. The food in the restaurant Tissemal was excellent, much better than we expected in Morocco, really tasty. Again the decor in the restaurant was really nice as were the staff. The walk to the Berber village went well, the food was again really good, well above what we expected.
 On the way to Fes the farm house we visited for lunch was interesting, we had a tour of the house and met the women of the family who prepared us a fantastic three course lunch in the courtyard. We both really enjoyed this meal with Abdeslam, who told us about Moroccan/Islamic customs and a few stories of his own during his travels. He’s a real nice guy who couldn’t do enough for us.
Fes is totally unlike anywhere else we’ve visited. The Medina’s absolute madness from the minute it opens until late into the night. The souks are full of people/donkeys/cats/mopeds/cyclists etc, makes the medina in Chefchaouen look tame! Again you excelled with the Hotel. The transformation when stepping off the slightly grubby alleyway into the Dar is amazing. The central area of the Dar is almost unreal, you can’t really believe these places exist just a few feet away from the streets/alleys of Fes! The ½ day guided tour of the city turned out to be almost a full day tour. Anwar really gave us a good insight into the medina, mosques/Islamic schools within the city. He went to great lengths to explain the significance of the rituals connected with prayers/mosques etc and we would both recommend him as a guide. Again another excellent trip organised by Spanish Steps. I am sure it won’t be our last. Ian and Debi. Independent Two Continents 
Andrea and I enjoyed your tour program very much. I must do justice to the experience and put in writing as much as I can. The lodging was very special, the sights were amazing and the people were warm and delightful. I feel very privileged to have spent time with you. You put together an experience for us that will shape our thinking for years to come. Andrea and Wayne (USA), Granada to Fes,
