Religious Holidays  (1 Answer)

Last year we used public transport to get as close to Aguelmane Azigza as we could then got a taxi to take us the last part of the trip as it is in the middle of nowhere we arranged for the driver to pick us up five days later and this worked well. We loved it so much we are doing the same again this year and will be leaving Aguelmane Azigza on 6 November 2011, however we have read in the rough guide that the religious holiday for Aid el Kebir is on 6 November and buses do not run and on the following day all transport is packed as people return to the cities from their family homes so we are wondering if this is correct or is the book not up to date on this point ?

Any info would be much appreciated.

Rent a car  (4 Answers)

Dear VT Friends,

Last questions before starting my Morocco Trip.

I am going to make a few days trip from Marrakesh to Ait Ben Haddou , Telouet, Ourzazate/Dades/Todra/Tinejad and on R702 to Erg Chebbi .

1., When coming back to Ourzazate, should I go the same way, or should I take N12 via Rissani/Tazzarine/Agdz/Ourzazate?????

2., Valley of Roses is a part of Dades valley, or, is it a "side trip"? Does it worth?

3., Easy to find places to eat on this routing, or shoul I take some food with us?

4., recommendation for cheap but trusty car rental companies? (maybe with location, website. )


5., Easy to find petrol stations on the way?

6., which kind of car do I need for this trip (2 persons)

7., Do you know approximate price/day?

8., Maybe fuel price nowadays? (I am travelling on budget so I need to know calculate in advance)

9., Any trap when renting car? Which kind of insurances shoul I arrange?

10., Is it safety to leave cars e.g at Ait Ben Haddou, and other places on routing?

NO more questions, I promise.


Thank you for your help

Help! Riad for Single traveller on a budget: Any recommendations???  (2 Answers)

Hello Fellow travellers!

I'm a female, single traveller to Marrakesh for the first time, and on a budget. Almost every riad that I checked on the website would offer a double room at a price more than 40 euro. Has anyone travelling alone managed to find a nice & safe room in a riad in the Medina area for 25 - 35 euro a night? Or even a an all female dorm that doesn't put holes in my pocket? FIY, I plan to stay in Marrakesh for 5 nights.
Would welcome any suggestions:-)
Cheers!

7 nights in marrakesh but want to make trip as exciting as possible  (1 Answer)

Heh all

was wondering any tips on how to make trip really exciting but not to expensive as i have already paid out half board in a 4 star hotel in marrakesh for 7 nights to be on the safe side, this is mainly because my mother will be with me and she is fit but had an injury few months back to her foot which has healed, i want to give her a exciting break but without killing her off! lol she can stand the heat and walking also though
what i had in mind was
a trip to a beach like essaouria
a trip to waterfalls and the atlas mountains
and i don't know where else? something different to the above that is not too far out?

cheers

Restaurants and dress code

Hi,

My husband and I would like a recommendation for a fine dining restaurant on Saturday night, where we can 'dress up' without looking out of place. (e.g cocktail style dress for me).

We specifically want a la carte/off the menu and not a set meal.

Have looked at Le Pavilion and Salam Bombay and Bo&Zin

Has anyone any comments on these or a recommendation that fits our bill?

Thanks!

Marrakech and query re Sahara Expeditions  (1 Answer)

Hi all, thank you to all contributors, the information on here has been a huge help.
I am going to Marrakech in early November on my own and am keen to do a 2 night 3 day tour from there to Merzouga and Erg Chebbi and keep reading about Sahara Expeditions but cannot get through to them. I have come across the tours on the website and I am wondering if it is the same company, in which case I can book it online which would be great as I want to do it the day after arriving, leaving no time for booking while there. Does anyone know if that is the same company? The address is the same but I just wanted to check in case it's one building with lots of different travel companies.
I've also booked myself dinner at Dar Marjana one night, any other places recommended for eating?
Many thanks.

What is the name of the hotel in the Todra Gorge?  (2 Answers)

Hi there,
Thanks for all the advice so far gleaned from members postings.
My wife and I are spending a week at the Hotel Ali from November 3rd but hope to hire a car for three days to retrace part of a six week tour of Morocco in 1990 when we stayed one night at the hotel in the Todra Gorge.
Does anyone know the name of the hotel and if they have a website?
Last time around I remember having to drive across the river to get to the hotel, what is the state of the river at this time of year?
I’m assuming it will be chilly, particularly in the evening, but how cold, just a sweater or full thermals?
With regards to the car hire, any recommended hire companies when in Marrakech; also, can I park near to the Hotel Ali?
Now in our 60s and having just completed an exhausting house move I’m looking forward to a relaxing break, so any other suggestions how to spend our week will be welcomed.
Thanks,
Les & Lorraine

Recommendations for a Riad/accommodations in Marrakech  (3 Answers)

I'll be in Marrakech at the end of April. I would love recommendations from other VTers regarding where they stayed, how much the nightly rate was, whether it was in walking distance from most sights, what you liked about it, that sort of thing.

What area in Marrakech do you recommend most?


I haven't got much time to find a place and it seems like a lot of riads are already fully booked with such sort notice. Thanks in advance for any advice, tips, etc.
