      Hello! I will be visiting Morocco with a friend for 4-5 days this June - just looking for some recommendations on places not to miss! We were planning on spending 2 days each in Casablanca and Marrakech, but looking through these posts it seems like Essaouira and Merzouga are highly recommended! Is it feasible to do all 4 places in 4-5 days? Account travel between and whatnot... Also as a first time visitor to Morocco, are hotels recommended or are there cheaper options like inns or hostels or apartments? Safety also a concern.. Thanks in advance!

      Hi everyone, We are arriving around 18.00 pm in Agadir in two weeks and we would like to figure out if it is worth staying there ( although from the threads I have read it seems that everyone suggests that it is better not to spend too much time there) or we should head to Essaouira straight away. If we leave, can we take a taxi from the airport or should we go somewhere else first to take a taxi from there? What are the chances that we can find a shared taxi and how much does it cost these days? Many thanks for your answers in advance.

      Celebrating a special birthday

      My husband and I will be in Fes from February 1-4, and are celebrating his 30th birthday on February 2!

      This will be close to the beginning of our time in Morocco and we have never been there before. We will be in Morocco for two weeks total, including Marrakech, Sahara Desert overnight, and Chefchaouen.

      I'd like to do something special on his birthday, but I have no idea where to start looking! A nice restaurant, a nice viewpoint, perhaps. But is there anything unique we can do? (I know there is, but don't know what!)

    • tour from Fes to Erg Chebbi (camel ride, overnight in tent) ends in Marrakesh?

      by explorer4ever Online Now Nov 23, 2013 at 2:50 PM

      Hello,

      I am traveling solo in early Dec, female. I hope to join a group tour (not a private tour) for the Sahara visit including riding camel and an overnight in the tent by a sand dune.

      However, from my research, seems all the 3day-2night tours are starting from Marrakesh ending in Marrakesh, or Rissani.

      Are there any reliable group tours (not private tour) going reversely, i.e. leaving Fes, ending in Marrakesh?

      Otherwise, I'll have to go to Marrakesh first to join the tour? I fly in Casablanca, fly out Marrakesh therefore it'll be most efficient to travel from Casa clockwise ending in Marrakesh, instead of going back and forth Marrakesh.

      Thank you!

      by karamella Online Now Jan 18, 2011 at 3:35 PM

      Dear VT Friends.

      The organisation of our Morrocco trip is comign to the end. But, I still have two questions.

      Some people say that it is strongly recommended to have a guide in Fes, otherwise we wil be lost. Others say , if i follow the signs there won"t be any problem.
      Usually I do not like organised trips, prefer to be independent, but in this case I really do not know what would be the best. Any experiences?
      IF the guide is really necessary, how much shoul I pay for it?

      Another question, we are going to make an excursion to Erg Chebbi.
      I think, we will not spend the night in the desert, don't have enough time...
      If we make a visit during the day, how much time we need? Half day, one day?
      Approximate price? I know there are different agenies organising trips there, even the hotel where I stay, but I don't know what is the reasonable price for two?

      Thank you/Judit

      Beirut & Damascus or Marrakech & Fes

      Any opinions? I've visited Marrakech a few years ago (was in Granda this past fall) and am very interested in going back to Morocco however Beirut and Damascus have gotten under my skin and are very unfamiliar thus alluring. Damascus is said to be the oldest city in the world. Beirut was (possibly still is?) the Paris of the East - and I hear the food in Lebanon is amazing. Beirut and Damascus for me is so far off the map which makes it very attractive while Morocco is a bit more familiar and is an incredible country. Help!

      Good value accomodation in Fes

      Hi,

      My girlfriend and I will be traveling to Morocco at the end of August. We have plenty of experience backpacking through Europe and never had issues finding good value accommodation upon arrival or a few days early online. However, we get the impression it might be an issue in Morocco in general and especially Fes. Should we be worried? Can you get a better deal negotiating for accommodation in person or will we find ourselves in sleeping in the street and getting mugged?

      We would consider the Fez Hi-Hostel but curfew in 10pm. We're not intending to be out all night but we do want to feel the nightlife, which I am sure goes way past 10pm, especially during Ramadan.

      any advice? is our best option a Riad in the 500dh range?

      any advice on accommodation for Fes and/or the rest of Morocco would be extremely useful.

      Thank you.

      Got some great suggestions here last year, but at that time I was travelling with friends and not alone.
