    • Travel toMarrakech

      Marrakesh Aug 3, 2015 at 4:19 AM

      Hej Dear All, I will go to Marrakech end of November. I travel alone and never have been visiting countries other than in Europe before. I will stay for 5 nights at a hostel. My embassy warn to go there and in particular warn to avoid going outside the city, to villages in the mountains etc. This is mostly because of the recent conflicts regarding ISIS (hostage-taking), Algeria, Mali, Mauritania, and Western Sahara.

      Do you have any recommendations? How to behave, what to expect, what to avoid, preparing my trip, maybe staying at a safer hotel?

      Thanks in advance, Phil

      Desert trip Merzouga/Zagora

      Should I wear shorts or long trousers on a desert trip on camels during daytime?

    • Sep trip - Is my bucket list doable?

      Morocco Jul 30, 2015 at 1:56 AM

      we are a couple in our 50s, in good health but a bit slow.

      We will arrive in Marrakech on the 30th Aug. at 9:30am. We are booked for 3 days at le Meredien Nfis Marrakech.

      I am thinking of leaving on the 2nd Sep, around 8:00am, to Ouarzazate. I understant that this is a 4 to 5 hours trip climbing up the Atlas mountains.

      We are considering stopping for the night in Ouarzazate, after a visit to Aït Benhaddou, booked at Hotel Sultana Royal Golf.

      On the 3rd of Sep, we would drive to Merzouga, hopefully being able to ride the camels before sunset (don`t know if this is doable). Looking at possibily booking thru

      On the 4th and 5th of Sep we would travel from Merzouga to Fez, with maybe a few stops in between for sightseeing (recommendations more than welcome!!!).

      We are booked at Riad Seffarine in Fez from the 5th till the 10th of Sep (five days altogether, with day trips to Meknes, Volubilis and Moulay Idriss).

      On the 10th we start our trip back to Marrakech with an overnight in Rabat.

      11th from Rabat to Essaouira (non stop).

      12th and 13th back to Marrakech

      14th at 9:50am flight out of Marrakech


      30th to 02nd Sep = 3 days in Marrakech
      02-3rd = 1 day travelling from Marrakech to Ouazazate, with visit to Aït Benhaddou (sleep in Ouazazate)
      3rd - 4th = 1 day travelling from Ouazazate to Merzouga with sunset camel (sleep in Merzouga)
      4 and 5th = 2 days driving from Merzouga to Fes (Don`t know yet where to sleep)
      5 to 10th = 5 days in Fez with day trips
      10 - 11th = 1 day travelling from Fes to Rabat (Don`t know yet where to sleep in Rabat)
      11 - 12th = 1 day travellinf from Rabat to Essaouira (Don` know yet where to sleep in Essaouira)
      12 - 14th = 2 days back to Marrakech, returning car and leaving Morocco

      Any inputs more than welcome. Thanks in advance.

      It seems that a flight from london to malaga and a ferry from port Tarifa to Tangier seems the easiest itinerary. I do find travel hard work and this trajectory seems reasonable. I cannot swim so I hope the ferry has lifeboats.i am mindful of that Titanic film.

      We experienced insistent vendors in Tangier.

      by Jesperp Online Now Oct 17, 2014 at 12:23 PM

      We experienced obtrusive vendors in the medina and in the area just outside the medina. A man contacted us on the street and said he worked at a 5 star hotel and said he was off for half an hour. He asked if we knew there was a market in the city today (Sunday). He led us through a market; into a perfume shop, where they took overcharges and finally he took us to a carpet deal. The trip with him took 3 hours. Is there anyone here who has advice for people visiting Tangier in relation to the above-mentioned vendors?

      Hi! this summer i'll be with a friend on a trip in Spain and Morocco. We booked a ferry from Algeciras to Tangier Med and I have some questions:
      -How long does it take from Algeciras to Tangier Med (Balearia) and what about the change of hour? (Morocco has one or 2 hour of difference with Spain?)
      -How long does it take to go from Tangier Med Port to Tanger Railway station and what is the best way to do it? We have to catch a train to go to Fez.

    • Left luggage lockers in Tarifa or Algeciras?

      by Ntb111 Online Now Sep 4, 2013 at 8:36 AM

      I'm travelling through Spain with a suitcase (average size, approx 14 kilograms). Was hoping to catch a ferry to tangier and then trek down through fez, Marrakech, and then back to tangier; however didn't want to take my suitcase (I have a small sized shoulder bag I can use for a weeks worth of travelling in morocco). I was wondering, are there any places in Spain, prior to the ferry that have left luggage services, maintaining the luggage for 6-7 days? I have read that the Algeciras train station does not have left luggage services.

      Thanks in advance

      Marrakech - Tangier - Algeciras

      by lgh Online Now Aug 16, 2013 at 11:12 AM

      Dear fellow travellers,

      My friend and I have made some adjustments in our itinerary so instead of going southbound from Spain to Morocco, we will be arriving first in Casablanca and moving up north to Spain. We plan on taking an overnight train from Marrakech to Tangier arriving in the morning around 7AM and then catch a ferry from Tangier med to Algeciras at 10AM to catch on a last train (3:30PM) from Algeciras to Granada. This presumably will work assuming a punctual train, transit bus from Tangier train station to Tangier Med and ferry time as per schedule. As this is my first trip, I am not sure how accurate are the time schedules in reality. Is this a doable plan or should we schedule to leave early afternoon from Marrakesh and stay overnight at Tangier to catch morning ferry?

      Separately, would it be safe for ladies to ride on the overnight train and use taxi (if required) should we need to take a taxi to Tangier Med from Tangier train station given the tight schedule? I have read mixed messages in regards to women travelling in Morocco so best to anticipate ahead for safety precautions.

      Grateful for any info or suggestions that will help us in finalizing this leg of our trip to Morocco and Spain.

      Cheers, lgh

      Hi all,

      Would be grateful if anyone can share travel tips/advise on how best to reach Tangier from Granada.
      Is it better to take ferry from Algeciras to Tangier Med or take a train to Malaga and continue by bus to Tarifa and then take a ferry to Tangier? We will be using a travel guide in Tangier as we hope the chance of being hassled will be minimized this way. Will it be relatively easy to get tickets on the same day for overnight train to Marrakesh from Tangier for early October? Hopefully it is not a peak season or holiday season in Morocco. Thanks before hand.
