"'So, what’s the small gear stick for?' That about sums up our knowledge of 4x4 driving when we set off to the Pyrenees in our defender 90 (Laurence) with our guide and mentor Charles. What a time was had, with excellent company and glorious scenery we had an adventure. With growing confidence, our skills were practiced and boundaries were tested and stretched in a safe environment. There was a ‘WOW factor’ every day, such that a camera would never capture the magnificence before us. Better in our driving richer in our memories, there was no better introduction to 4x4 adventures. "
"Thanks to Yvonne and Charles and the great group of people who we travelled with we had one of our best holidays. The journey was relaxed and the team spirit was high even our dog was welcomed into 'Team Protrax'. Charles and Yvonne were always calm and helpful and ready to answer any questions. There were a few technical problems along the way, but Charles's knowledge proved invaluable and we were soon on our way. The scenery was outstanding and the views vast, I am sure these would not have been possible without Charles and Yvonne's extensive knowledge and experience. If you are contemplating an overland adventure, my advice would be to go for it. We are already planning the next one. "
"Mountains and Desert Trip Oct 2015: For my first trip to explore Morocco I chose to use PROTRAX as they have a long established history and a great reputation. Our guides were Yvonne and Charles and I think it would be very hard to beat them. The combination of their knowledge, constant humour and approachability made travelling with them easy and an absolute pleasure. The route we followed took us from the lushness and solitude of the Cedar forest, up and across the heights of the Atlas Mountains, with unforgettable views and memories every step of the way, till we reached the spectacular dunes of Erg Chebbi. Simply fantastic. Would I recommend PROTRAX? Without doubt!"
"Due to unprecedented heavy snow in the Atlas Mountains, our road-book lasted exactly one day. Major roads were closed and central Morocco ground to a halt – And there was I thinking it was all going to be sun and sand. What an introduction to a very diverse country! None of this made any difference to the “adventure” element of our tour! Instead of following the established routes, we headed off in different directions and explored tracks that were off the maps or had not been driven in a few years and I had a fabulous time. Just the kind of “something different” holiday that I was looking for! Despite being told by my neighbours it was “too nice” for such a trip, my D4 performed like a dream and proved what a versatile vehicle it is and best of all, I finally learned to handle it in real sand. Many thanks to Yvonne and Charles from Protrax for a wonderful adventure – I look forward to the next trip!"
"Unforgettable experience. I travelled a lot around the world but this was the first time in an organized trip. I'm not at all disappointed. It was brilliant: challenging tracks with mud, water, deep ruts, dust and even snow. A good company of dedicated Land Rover friends. Stunning scenery and last but not least competent support by Charles and Yvonne Morgan. We were always on the safe side. In addition I learned a lot about off road driving. My new off road motto: As slow as possible, as fast as necessary!"
"Charles and Yvonne, thank you so very much for your kindness and hospitality during the Morocco Desert and Mountains trip this past October. I was in constant awe at how level-headed and calm you remained in even the most frustrating of circumstances. Laura and I absolutely had a great time. It was an adventure well outside our comfort range and was by far a new experience to the both of us - and we enjoyed it immensely. Thank you."
