      How much luggage can you take on a train?

      Casablanca 2 hours ago

      My wife and I are planning a train trip from Casablanca to Rabat. We will travel first class, in order to have reserved seats. We will have one medium-sized suitcase each, but too big for an overhead rack. Are there spaces in the cars for luggage, or do we have to look into checking the luggage for this short journey?

    • 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.

      Ouarzazate Jan 11, 2014 at 3:04 AM

      We'd like to cross the Atlas from Ouarzazate to Demnate via R307 road with a small car (so no 4X4 or similar) I just checked some pictures and I found some where I haven't seem any asphalt. So around 10/March do you think is it doable with a small car? And if so, how long should I count for the trip. I am a good driver so that shouldn't make a problem.

      Thanks a lot to everyone for your comments and quick help on the earlier post. We still plan to take a bus from Marrakech to Ouarzazate and drive onwards. I am hoping to get your inputs on just 2 pending things:

      1. Car rental at Ouarzazate: Can someone recommend a good and cheap car rental place in the downtown area? I have checked out Hertz/Avis/Budget/EuroCar and was wondering if there was another reliable place. Also, will a sub-compact or compact car (like Ford Ka) be okay for a drive into Merzouga?

      2. CTM bus schedule: Does anyone know if there are any evening buses from Ouarzazate to Marrakech? We start in the morning from Merzouga and need to be in Casablanca by next morning. If we don't fly from OZZ, wondering if we can still get there.

      Bus times from Ouarzazate to Marrakesh

      Ouarzazate Nov 2, 2008 at 6:54 AM

      hello all

      I hope someone knows the answer to my question.

      My partner and I are travelling late December (the week before Christmas) to Morocco.

      Our itinerary is to set off from Marrakesh by bus to Ouarzazate and then hire a car to travel from Ouarzazate to the Draa valley, Dades gorge etc.

      We have travelled to Morocco several times before but never in that region. I am aware that Supratours run to Ouarzazate from Marrakesh as do CTM.

      I have the time details for leaving but I really need to time travel details for setting back off from Ouarzazate to Marrakesh. I need those details in order to pre-book the car hire, most car hire companies require a time of pick up which I cannot give at the moment.

      These are the details that I have for the outward journey, but I need the return times.

      CTM :: leaves 11am – arrives 3pm or leaves 4pm and arrives at 8.30pm (2 journeys a day)

      Supratours :: leaves 2pm – arrives 8pm

      Notice how Supratours take a lot longer to get there...

      Many thanks for all your input, I realise that this is a frequently asked question.
