    • Minibus transfer - Marrakech to Essaouira

      Essaouira Nov 22, 2014 at 1:12 PM

      We are coming to Essaouira in December. There are ten of us and we would like to get a minibus from Marrakech airport rather than grand taxis. Any recommendations for how to book a minibus and how much it might cost? We would like one with seat belts as we have car seats for two toddlers.

    • 2 days/One night trip from Marrakech to Zagora

      Morocco Dec 7, 2014 at 5:47 PM

      My boyfriend and I will be spending 4 days in Marrakesh in December third week and are hoping to do a 2 day / 1 night trip down to Ouarzazate and Zagora in order to see some of the things around Ouarzazate and to do a camel trip and spend the night in the desert near Zagora.

      Is it worth it to do this trip or should we just spend the time in Marrakesh? Is the desert worth seeing in Zagora?

      I am looking at the tour companies online which include travel, guided tour and a night in the tents.Does anyone have any recommendations of tour companies that we can do this with? How much should we expect to pay for this sort of tour?

      Are there likely to be any problems with these roads over the winter?

      Many thanks in advance for your advice.

      This is the itinerary that they are proposing-
      Day 1:
      This tour includes pick up from your Hotel in Marrakech.
      The tour Departs from Marrakech at around 07:00hrs in a modern, air conditioned vehicle.
      Travelling over the Atlas mountains to reach our first site, Kasbah Ait Benhaddou, where you can freely explore the Kasbah. Note that there is not an entrance fee to enter the Kasbah and you are not obliged to hire a guide.
      Following along the route, we then arrive at Ouarzazate, the gateway to the desert, and the Moroccan city known for Hollywood movies being located and filmed here.
      There are 2 opportune times to visit Ouarzazate on this tour. The tour allows for time for a visit of Ouarzazate on either day 1 or day 2, depending upon the schedule. It is possible to visit the Atlas film studios during the tour, subject to time. The small cost of about 3.00 euros entrance to the studios is not included in the cost of the tour. Entry to the Studios is voluntary.
      Following your Ouarzazate visit, we continue along the route, experiencing the Draa Valley, en route to Zagora.
      Once we arrive at Zagora, we have time to explore, until just prior to sunset.
      At the beginning of Sunset, we will join our camels and head off into the desert for a 2 hour Camel trek to reach our Berber desert camp for the night.
      The camp provides private Berber bivouacs, evening meal and Breakfast.
      Full bedding is included at the camp. Everyone has a tent to sleep in, but if you wish, you can sleep out under the stars to enjoy this amazing free lightshow, with the stars being so bright in the Desert.

      Day 2:
      After a traditional Berber breakfast we have a two hour camel ride at sunrise to explore the area further.
      We then start our return journey to Marrakech, stopping off at some highlights on the way.
      Our journey takes us over the high Atlas Mountains for the enjoyment of magnificent views of the surrounding country and to see the local communities who live in these mountains.
      We return to Marrakech, arriving at around 17:00hrs or 18:00hrs.

      Morocco 20 hours ago

      I was in Morocco in November, during the recent devestating floods, and am aware that some bridges and roads collapsed especially in the South.

      I am visiting again in February and am wondering how easy it will be to travel around from Agadir (eg. Sidi Ifni, Mirleft,Tafraoute, Essaouira)

      I have been unable to find any updates at all on the internet so if anyone has any useful links, I would be grateful!!!

      Thank you for your help

    • Student in Meknes

      by edbartley27 Online Now Aug 28, 2010 at 7:16 PM

      Our daughter is soon to leave for Meknes for a semester of study at the Moulay Ismail University. We are concerned parents of course. She will be staying with a few other students in an apartment in Meknes. She speaks a little French. Any information you can give us would be appreciated. We live in the United States and parents worry when children travel so far.
      Also, she needs to travel from Casablanca to Meknes. We found a driver to take her. Should we be concerned for her safety?
      Sincerely.

      Studying in Meknes

      by SammiJo2787 Online Now Nov 18, 2007 at 10:18 PM

      I am planning on studying in Meknes this summer and by the time I am there I will have been taking Arabic for one year, but I am curious to know if it would be easy to travel around without knowing a great deal of the language. I am also concerned about safety. Is this a place where I should always travel in a group, or will I be okay traveling alone? Any information would be appreciated! Thanks!

    • Transportation from Mohammed V Airport

      by CarlEdwardRoss Online Now Jun 15, 2003 at 9:40 PM

      I am trying to get to Meknes. I am due to arrive at the airport in Casablanca at 6:00am on August 2, 2003. How do I get to the train station once I arrive? I do not want to get lost nor have much time to. Will a taxi get me there faster? If so how much can I expect to pay for a trip that far?
