I'm going to Morocco for the second time in April.
Doing some research about visiting The Draa region and trekking in Erg Chegaga, I run into three people from different places who have warned me that people in Mhamid are agressive.
I could ignore one of them since she's running a riad in Tamegroute and is obviously interested in keeping me there.
But another one is an acquaintance who is original from Ouarzazate and runs a riad in Marrakech where I'm staying at the end of the trip, and the other is a tour guide I consider reliable. Both say about 30% of people there are agressive and recommended me to hire a local guide.
Does anyone know why Mhamid people would be agressive while inhabitants in the near Oulay Edriss are not? I mean, traveling alone, is there in that region anything different from the rest of Morocco I have to consider in terms of safety ?? Of course I'm not planning to approach the frontier or crossing the desert alone. I'm talking about going alone and visiting the town and taking a grand taxi, that sort of things.
Thanks for any comments.
I will be driving end of December from Ouarzazate to Marakesh, is the road with snow or bad to drive at that time ?
from marrakesh to ouarzazate by bus or taxy, time and cost please
I want to go by bus from Ouarzazate to Chefchouen via Merzouga. What are my options? If I wanted to stop off one night in one of the towns would there be another bus the next day to carry on my trip to Chefchoen?
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.
We are planning to fo from Marrakesh to Ouarzazate in the middle or end of February (depens on Ryanair ticket prices). I'd like to ask, is it even possible to cross the Atlas that time of the year?
the ctm bus only goes around 04.00 in the morning or at 16.00 o'clock.
I hope someone can give me advice how to go to Zagora at a better time and how much this will cost. We are with two persons.
urgently need opening hours to Taourirt Kasbah in Ouarzazate.
How long to travel by bus from ouarzazate to essouira via agadir or via tiz'n'tiska pass if possible?
Thank you if you can help.
Can you take a taxi between Marrakech and Ouarzazate? Cost and length of trip? Tks
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.
Hi, I am arriving in Marrakesh in December at 19:00 and need to get to Ouarzazate that evening. is it possible? I have looked at the Supratours site but unless I am missing something I can't see any buses to Ouarzazate??
Any help would be appreciated - thanks

TRAVELLING FROM MARRAKECH TO OUARZAZATE.
We are travelling from Marrakech to Ouarzazate and would like to fly or have an English speaking driver. Can anyone provide details of how long it would take in a car and the cost or what airline would fly between the 2 cities? What timetable and cost.
I am traveling to Morocco in March. I will first be in Marrakech, then plan to travel to Ouarzazate, then Fes, then back to Marrakech. Can anyone give advice on the best way to travel between the cities? Particularly for the long distances like Ouarzazate to Fes? It is my understanding that hiring a chauffeur will be very expensive, and I don't feel comfortable renting a car and driving myself.
