Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the other week with the trek. I had a really great time! Was a big challenge and completely different to anything I'd done before but I haven't stopped telling people about it since. Was a great adventure :) I'd love to come along on another one some time.
A great trip with lots of variety and interest. The trip was very well organised and the people we were in contact with were very hospitable. Definitely a trip to recommend!
I had a fantastic time on the Mt Toubkal Summer trip and made some great memories with the group. Our Group leader Matt was excellent and was always there when needed, but ultimately let us experience everything for ourselves as many of us were on our first trekking/climbing trip. Looking forward to taking on another challenge with Adventure Alternative next year!
A fantastic trip with breathtaking scenery, patient and knowledgeable guides and a chance to experience an interesting and traditional culture. Definitely recommended for keen hill walkers and those wanting to get off the beaten track and see a beautiful part of the world.
(The) Trek has given me a chance to experience mountain scenery that is changeable and spectacular on a daily basis. I have seen and experienced the real morocco and the way people live; this is invaluable. This trip is challenging and very rewarding - it’s a shame it was not for 14 days!
Our team has recently returned from three weeks in Kenya, having just taken part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We have returned home with heavy but open hearts, a renewed appreciation for life, home and community, and of course a new and broadened worldview.
We were guided by a cream-of-the-crop staff, lead by Eva and Rosie. They were always warm, welcoming and understanding, and their attention to detail amongst a group of 26 was incredible. Our time spent in Tigithi working on the project and interacting with the young people is indescribable; it really opened eyes and brought our group to life, while our mountain adventure pushed many beyond their own boundaries.
The entire experience from beginning to end was life altering, and although it is difficult to measure how this new perspective and attitude has changed these young people, I know it will be profound. Before we had even left Kenya, many had talked about returning to work with Moving Mountains. This trip isn’t the end of our journey, but is rather just the start.
I went into this trip with an open mind and I was just blown away. The level of professionalism displayed by the staff was amazing, the area of the country I was taken through was unparalleled in its beauty, and the food and culture and warmth of the people I met gave me a good learning experience about Kenya. It was the best trip of my life!
Having been to Africa a couple of times before this trip to Kenya I had a pretty good sense of what to expect and I was still amazed by the experience. All of the staff in Kenya were wonderful. We could not have been welcomed or treated any better. They thought of everything. The entire group came back to Canada having taken part in one of the best life experiences. Many of the youth are talking about returning to Kenya. The experience was certainly life altering and many of the youth I have spoken to have changed what they want to do with their life or are at least questioning many of what they felt were truths. Both boys and girls were at time very emotional. In my experience boys especially don’t cry easily and certainly not publicly. A big thanks to everyone at Adventure Alternative and Moving Mountains those in Kenya and in the UK for all that you did to make this a truly magical experience for all of us.
What an amazing trip! Four 4,000m summits in 3 days, plus great food, fantastic and knowledgable local and UK guides. What more could you ask for?
I just wanted to say thank you for all your efforts in organising and providing the trip last week. It was great to be back up amongst some higher peaks and I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Morocco.
