2 Week Family Itinerary in January

We are  planning on 2 weeks in Morocco starting mid-January 2016.  We'll have our 2 kids aged 13 and 9.  I'm looking for itinerary suggestions.  We'd probably start in Marrakech and plan on ending in Tangier. (taking ferry to Spain for next leg of the trip) 

We've all traveled quite a bit and don't have an issue with a rental car if that's the best way to get around, but not opposed to bus/train travel.

I'd suggest traveling from Marrakech to Aït Benhaddou via Telouet kasbah.  Then onto the Agdz area for a couple nights. Then to Merzouga (desert) for a couple nights.  From there, you can drive to Fes by way of Midelt.  Spend a day in Fes, then possibly head to Chefchaouen and then up to Tangier-Tetouan.  

Let us know if you are interested in a proposal for 4x4 travel.  This is the best way to travel in Morocco, especially with kids.  Our hosts are former nomads and amazing guides as they are full of information about their country and culture.   The train will not take you beyond Marrakech.  I don't recommend a bus for 2 weeks as you'd need to take some taxis in between locations.  A rental car is doable if you don't plan to venture off road, but it will not be possible in the desert, as well as some of the other areas that are off road.  We are able to get agency pricing at hotels, riads, etc.

Medina would be the best area to stay with your family, it's a charming area. Look into the Palmeraie Golf Palace and Resort Marrakech. It's a little less hectic but close enough to the city. Visit Jardin de Majorelle and the Palais El Badiî.
