a big HI from SAHARA!
according to kids tips this not a probleme specially in Marrakech ; it's plenty of these children tips . generally kids aged 7/10 yrs don't get probs here , i've made many times circuits / excursions with families who brought kids aged 3/4 ! and they do not find troubles i used to play with them and i admired to. i brought them to may family in ERFOUD to my small brother ( daughter 6 yrs , son 3 yrs ) and they play with them ...etc
one more important thing is if u didn't rent a car , try to get 4x4 with all the facilities included which can be an awesome vehicule for the both of u with ur kids , also try to bring them to desert( Merzouga ERG CHEBBI) where they will see the camels on dunes ( kids like this a lots) that's all!

ini.deluxetours@gmail.com a helpful operator.
cheers.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

no alcohol...

by venteeocho

Although the Muslim population is forbidden to drink the locally produced wines and beers, visitors can imbibe without restriction. (It is more polite to refrain from drinking alcohol in outdoor cafes, although it's okay to drink inside.) The table wine is in the French tradition, inexpensive and eminently potable.

Taxi cost 20Dh for locals & 80 for silly tourist

by carpathia

Upon arrival at Marrakech Menara airport we were approached by the unscrupulous taxi drivers whom offered to take us to the Median for 80 Dirham. Take note, the locals pay only 20 dirham. The lonely planet guide said that it should cost between 50 - 60 dirham so I asked for it to be reduced from 80 to 60. None of them were budging naturally and it was really hot so we finally accepted an offer for 70dirham.

When we got out of the taxi, we handed the driver 100 and he told us he had no change, laughed and got in his taxi and drove away laughing. If you're smarter than us, make sure you get the correct change before getting in one of these taxis or better yet, take the bus.

Sometimes, it's not about whether the price is fair compared to what you expect to pay in your home country. You are not in London for example but in Marrakech and if the locals pay 20 Dirham then why should you have to pay more?

Pleasant place to stop for a cooling drink

by suvanki about Koutoubia Cafe

Situated opposite the Koutoubia Mosque - hence its' name!

Quite a pleasant cafe, with comfy wicker/rattan chairs and tables.

I stopped by for my mint tea fix, after a morning wandering around the nearby Cyber park, then the Ensemble Artisan.

I'm not sure if any food is served here, I didn't see anyone eating. The cafe is very popular with tourists who appeared to all be relaxing over a cooling drink - which appeared to all be non alcoholic.

It's a good place for people spotting, as this is one of Marrakeshes busiest areas.
I was here on Friday mid day, as the call to prayer reverberated all around. Afterwards, hundreds of men streamed out of the Koutoubia Mosque, rushing back to their work etc.

The only downside is that the fumes from the continual stream of traffic can sometimes be a problem. I had a pot of mint tea - Very refreshing!

The minaret of the Koutoubia

by call_me_rhia

The minaret of the Koutoubia belongs to the Koutoubia Mosque - although very few people remember seeing the mosque. This minaret is so beautiful that it steals the show. The origin of the name has to do with what was sold all around it: manuscripts... al-Koutoubiyyin, in fact, means librarian.

The 69 metres tall minaret of the Koutoubia was built by Caliph Yaqub al-Mansur (1184-1199) and, because of its beauty, it was used first as model for the Giralda of Seville (Spain) and then again for the Hassan Tower of Rabat, the capital of Morocco. Unofficially, though, many other buildings took inspiration from this "tower" - including the Manhattan Municipal Building. It appears that Stalin had been fascinated by it, too... and had used it as its inspiration here and there, in the Kremlin in Moscow.

The name Koutoubia comes from the Arabic al-Koutoubiyyin for librarian, since it used to be surrounded by sellers of manuscripts. It is considered the ultimate structure of its kind. The tower is 69 m (221 ft) in height and has a lateral length of 12.8 m (41 ft). Six rooms (one above the other) constitute the interior; leading around them is a ramp by way of which the muezzin could ride up to the balcony. It is built in a traditional Almohad style and the tower is adorned with four copper globes.

My mother was born here.

"Rush hour in the Medina"

Life goes on here regardless of what Paris Hilton is up to.

"Konichiwa Marrakech"

I was lucky enough to catch a Japanese TV crew filming a round-the-world trip along the 33rd latitude. These chaps out-crazied the Djemma El-Fnaa. Even the snake charmers were dumbstruck.

"Kraftwerk in Marrakech"

I spent most of my time in Gueliz, which meant I didn't get hassled and got to see some strange things. You can also buy clothes, slippers, tea glasses, lamps and all the classic souvenirs at a fixed price in a number of shops. They have piles of t-shirts which were printed in the 70s or 80s. Very cool and retro. Go for the child sizes to get the best fit. The service is friendly, relaxed and civilised. Like a shop should be.
