      Travel in April - Queries

      Marrakesh 3 hours ago

      I am in initial stages of planning a trip to Marrakesh - Morocco. I plan to have around 2 1/2 days to spend in and around of Marrakesh. I will be travelling with my wife and 2 kids (aged 9 and 6). My questions are
      - Is this place safer - we will not stay outside after dark but wanted to get some cautions/comforts
      - are there any health issue to ebola or other scars going on in Africa
      - If I need to visit sight-seeing places, what is the best mode to travel important places. Are there good group tours that one can recommend?
      - Generally what are the must-see places that you will recommend

      PAYG mobile phone SIM cards.

      Morocco Jan 25, 2015 at 1:47 PM

      I'm in the planning stages for my next trip to Morocco and need some advice about local SIM cards for Moroccan networks. I have a PAYG Huawei smartphone, now unlocked from the venal Vodafone network and want to buy a local SIM card with pre-loaded data plan, I'm not a lazy hound and have done my homework, proof here....

      prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia....

      But I find the information confusing, I will need 15 gigs for thirty days, and see the potential for rip-offs in setting up the phone with the local card, I can do this myself, provided it only involves switching the cards, but the outlet might want to charge an additional commission fee for this service. I only need this data plan to check the weather forecast while travelling, I won't be making any phone calls with the Huawei, I have another O2 phone for emergency use.

      So, can any members with "hands-on" experience point me in the right direction?

      No touts or theorists, please!

      Benny.

    • Spain and Morocco honeymoon advice

      Morocco Jan 11, 2015 at 7:32 PM

      Hello fellow travelers! My fiancé and I are having a difficult time planning our honeymoon, and would love help!
      Here is what we've been thinking so far: We are interested in starting in Spain. Sevilla/e looks wonderful, as does Madrid, Valencia, Granada, and Malaga looks decent and we've heard pretty good things about it. From there (after spending time in 2 places for 3 days each, or something close to that), we'd like to move on to Morocco either by bus and then fast ferry into Tangier where we would quickly move on to somewhere else: places nearby Fez that we are interested in are Asilah, Chefchaouen, Sefrou and Volobilis. The other option would be to go from Spain to more southern Morocco, near Marrakesh. Places near Marrakesh we are interested in are Essouira, and Diabat ("the castle in the sand"). We are not interested in Casablanca, unless we are just departing there to come back home. We are also up for any and all suggestions and alterations, or new information and areas we have not yet thought about.

      For our honeymoon we are looking to experience a combination of culture, sightseeing and easy adventures, as well as leisure, romance, and lots of great food and authentic, spanish and moroccan entertainment. I look forward to speaking with you soon! Thank you so much. My phone number and email is listed in my signature below.

      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

      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!

    • Trekking

      by JANEVANS Online Now Oct 10, 2010 at 2:40 PM

      We are staying in Fes for 5 days then trekking through Oum er Rbia and Aguelmane Azigza near Khenifra and wondered if anyone out there had camped at either of these places.

      Any information on places to camp / shop for basics and local transportation in these areas would be much appreciated.

      Pronunciation of Bab Boujloud?

      by Deneen1 Online Now Sep 3, 2010 at 5:32 AM

      I could use some help with how to pronounce Bab Boujloud.
      Is the "j" pronounced? Is "loud" like loud in English or would it be more like "lood"? Is the "a" in Bab like the "a" in bad? And both of the "b"s are pronounced in Bab?
      I may end up arriving in Fes late and will be coming from the train station, I would like to know how to pronounce the word if I need to tell a taxi driver or ask for directions.
      Thanks for any help!!!!

    • prices in Fes restaurants

      by perros Online Now Aug 31, 2010 at 3:13 PM

      Is a 600 DH per 3 ppl dinner a lot ?
      Our riad owner asked as if we would like to eat within his riad, but we have to 'prebook' dinner...
      and the price is 600 DH or 60 Eur for 3 of us,
      anyway it seems a bit pricey for us, considering the places around with great reviews have twice smaller prices..

      any thoughts ?

      Good value accomodation in Fes

      by eric_canuck Online Now Aug 10, 2010 at 7:46 PM

      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.
      Eric
