    • Morocco- which riad? Book a tour online in advance or when there, through riad or tour company?

      Morocco Nov 8, 2015 at 6:29 PM

      Hi All

      My family and I (2 adults, 2 11 years) are planning a 7 night trip to Marrakesh Morocco at the beginning of February and trying to do it on a fairly tight budget. I'm completely confused by the number of choices in all aspects of the trip: which Riad? Book desert trips online in advance or through our riad? etc etc.... I keep reading conflicting advice and reviews and discovered that many trip adviser reviews are fake so worried about trusting those. The more I read, the more confusing!
      Any advice would be gratefully received!
      Thank you in advance :)

      Tanneries scam

      by ger4444 Online Now Jul 21, 2015 at 5:19 AM

      Many people complain about the tanneries scam in Marrakech. (t.i, especially when you travel alone, once inside the tanneries, scammers block your way out and stop you from leaving again, asking suddenly a lot of money for "the visit") This seems to happen to many ppl. How about the tanneries in Fes? Same scam also happening a lot, or is it safe?

      Celebrating a special birthday

      by Karlie85 Online Now Jan 10, 2014 at 11:20 AM

      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!)

      Thank you in advance for your help.

    • 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


      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!

      with or without guide?

      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!
