Arriving late

by Luigi6

I shall be arriving late - after 8pm FROM THE uk. How much should I pay for the taxi to the city? Please advise if anyone has this experience.

Re: Arriving late

A ride with a so called 'petit taxi' from the airport to the Medina should be about 80 dirham.

happy travels

If there's anyway to pre-book, I'd suggest doing that. Although we arrived later than you will, we had a bad experience - got ripped off AND dumped in the wrong place, had to try and find our hotel - getting harassed by a group of guys and then an obnoxious drunk along the way. Was so sorry I didn't arrange for hotel pickup!! Definintely one of my worst travel experiences.

I paid about 200 dirhams but it was in the very early hours of the morning, you should do alright for about a 100 dirhams but again if you find some other travellers going the same way perhaps you can share a taxi with someone and split the cost.

Hi there - for maximum 3 people make sure you get only a Petit Taxi (not a Grand Taxi). The taxi fares are regulated and there are now signs up at the airport to advise of fares so tourists don't get ripped off. You should pay no more than 100 dirhams including bags. Get your dirhams cash at the airport on arrival. Make sure you agree the price with the taxi driver and give him a small tip if satisfied.

Spot on Rachel, That would be my advice too, a petite taxi and a grand taxi actually charge the same price to the city from the airport (80 to 100Dh) The difference is that a petite taxi is restricted to within the city limits and can only take 3 passengers, where as a grand taxi could squeeze in 6 passengers & take you further afield. 8pm is not late in Morocco.
You will find Taxi's outside the main terminal..

& the fare isn't DH 100 per head. A ton to get the thing rolling, afterthat negociate.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Marrakesh Tip

by Andreaska

among the food-stalls at the Djmaa el Fna we found one that - every day - produced so much smoke, people eating there almost had tears in their eyes. however it was this stall where the benches were always full ...

Cosmetics

by tini58de about Local Products

Both Henna and Argan oil products are a nice souvenir from Morocco!

We bought some Henna and a moisturizing creme with Argan oil in this lovely small cosmetics place in the suqs of Marrakesh. He also had other things like perfumes, soaps, Argan oil (filled in old plastic bottles) - it was such a joy to have a look around! We paid 5 DH for the Henna and 20 DH for the creme. The price seemed so reasonable that we did not even bargain!

Fine dining, Moroccan palace style

by travelmad478 about Yacout

We had drinks and coffee on the roof terrace and in one of the lounges in Yacout, which is one of the most spectacular-looking restaurants I've ever seen. It's contained in a palazzo-style house on a very unassuming pedestrian side street in the medina. After you walk through the door in the wall to get into the restaurant, you can see why this is one of the most celebrated places in Marrakesh. Even if you don't go to eat there, try to get in for drinks just so you can wander around its four floors and roof terrace, all of which are filled with gorgeous furniture and fountains.

The Saadian tombs

by call_me_rhia

The Saadian tombs in Marrakech is a sort of mausoleum where the bodies of about sixty members of the Saadi Dynasty are buried. They had ruled the south of Morocco in the 16th century, apparently in a quite bloody way.

The Saadian tombs is a three-room complex, of which only two can be visited. They are very richly ornated and made of Carrara marble. These tombs are not large, so it's best to visit them early in the morning or late in the afternoon, where the masses of the tour groups have gone.

Once you have visited the tombs, you should visit the El Badi Palace, too - which is just a few corners away. Why? because it was built by the most famous sultan of the Saadi dinasty: Ahmad I al-Mansur (1578–1603)

French Occupation

by keeweechic

During the 1900’s, the French conquered Marrakesh and Marshal Lyautey used the Palace as his residence. During this time he chose to update and modernise the complex.
Decorations take the form of subtle stucco panels, zellij decorations, tiled floors, smooth arches, carved-cedar ceilings, shiny marble (tadlak) finishes and zouak painted ceilings.
