Sounds very reasonable itinerary.
Be aware you can NOT visit the inside of the mosques.

happy travels

Sounds good to me, Don't shop at night, the light is bad and shop keepers off load their most badly made/marked goods.

It is advisable to buy your bus ticket for Essaouira the day before, The new price is 70Dh one way, this includes 1 piece of luggage.

Thanks for the help! is a bus or a grand taxi better to Essouira. We are 6.

You will be very squashed in a Grande Taxi, 4 in the back and 2 in front + the driver. The journey takes 3 hours.
Both Supratours and CTM bus companies opperate to Essaouira. I prefer Supratours, The ticket office and bus station are a short walk from the railway station. The last bus from Essaouira leaves at 6.30pm. The CTM office is in Guiliz district.

hi, to add to Windcity though if your 6 include children then I would say that a grande taxi is the best - faster and you can ask them to stop along the way a lot easier - theres a viewpoint over Essaouira that makes a nice stop. with huge boot in the car for your luggage.

If you are 6 big adults then yes its pretty uncomfortable to squash 4 passengers in the back. the 2 passenger seats in the front are just cosy and have good views of course if you like taking photos and seeing where you are going.

YOu have to make sure they charge you normal rates as per what they are supposed to charge locals per seat or cheaper rather than seeing you as a load of tourists and trying to make more money out of your use of all the seats in the taxi.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Have a Drink! Slurp!

by beetlebummer

One of the things that you must not miss trying, is the freshly squeezed orange juice. And they are cheap! There are plenty of push cart stores selling orange juice...you can't possibly miss it when you are at the square. So how then do you choose which store to buy from...well...for me I did the best I could to stand around, looking for the friendliest vendor. But then I decided on something else...the best looking vendor of them all....and lucky for me he's also the friendliest and the nicest...does posses the charming smile of actor Matthew Mccounaughey...a bonus for me...strangely the orange juice is juicer and sweeter than the others...hmmm wonder why I kept coming back for more...heheh! Burpp!

Drive to Ouirgane as a base for a few days..lovely

by angiebabe

hi, yes youve got good answers here especially Windcity's - Im very experienced with driving around at night in Morocco and have driven the road to Ouirgane a number of times - its good road but drive as Windcity has said esp as its your first time driving in Morocco - but its really not so difficult to do so.
March is beautiful though if it is later March then unfortunately you will have missed the almond flowers along the road from Ouirgane to Tin Mal - several areas in the valleys along that way they are prolific so its a stunning sight along there - but in March up the road to Imlil is lovely in March and many other areas have lots of flowers to brighten the countryside such as around Tafraoute and around Ourika.

but you will do well with a week and a car based at ouirgane - definitely drive up to Imlil - you will see flowers/trees in blossom in March up that way, park in the village and take a walk up to Kasbah Imlil for stunning views 360 degrees. its 25 dirham pp to get in and includes a drink which is well worth it. The mountain guides will be out in the middle of the village to approach you to offer their services - as I have previously found its worth it - to maximise your time and extend your opportunities to meet locals. They are all professional certified/registered guides there and they need money too so its worth it. Nice to go with one up to the kasbah but there is a lovely circuit around the villages that take you past the waterfalls that you will see down below from when you are up the top of the kasbah.
The road also continues on another 5 km on from Imlil and this is a nice drive with some lovely views and scenery and to where some of the oldest villages in Morocco are.
Im yet to finish making my page for Imlil but its great up there esp in March.

Ive got a bit of a page on Ouirgane if youd like to look at it - a guided tour around the village is worth the money spent for a couple of hours - and even have a visit into whoever guides you's home for tea and bread and a donation.

Definitely drive along to Tin Mal and to the viewpoint over from the top of TiznTest - even do it all as a good day trip to Taroudant and back again if you leave early enough in the morning.

Then yes do a day trip up to Oikemaiden and Ourika valley - if you ski then take what you could ski in - there was heaps of snow when I was there in Feb and there usually still is in March for the chairlifts to run - skis and boot hire at the lifts - and worth the experience to say you skiied North Africas highest skifield and went on the highest chairlift!

Driving from the airport is not really much of a problem - its finding the turnoff to Ouirgane - each time Ive been there the signposts have been covered by trees - you might find that you go past the road and need to turn around to check the road or otherwise get a taxi at the airport to go ahead of you to navigate for you should only be about 10 dirham.

Get some dirhams out from the ATMs at the airport.

If you are at all worried then just stay the night in Marrakech, have a walk around the souks and up to Musee Marrakech in the morning for a couple of hours to see some sights and then head off about midday.
I like Hotel Toulousain when I have a car as its fairly easy to find and easy for parking. Its not far from the tourist office down a side street/parallel road. You could get a taxi to go ahead of you to find it for you.
YOu could also then drive to the marjane supermarket to stock up on some good Moroccan red wine supplies etc if you wished also before you head off on your way to Ouirgane.

All the best, a week in March with a car is a delight!

Yacout

by chrismart5 about Yacout

This restaurant is in an old palace in the middle of the old part of the city. Part of the experience is to be taken on a tour of the palace during your meal. One has a drink either in the entry hall or on the roof to begin the evening and each successive course is served in a different room - all of which are decorated amazingly. The food is uniformly fantastic. Doesn't matter - everything's fantastic.

Doorways of Bahia Palace

by travelmad478

One of the most pleasing design features of this palace is the views it gives from one space into another. Often, you can stand in one spot and have your eyes drawn through several perfectly-placed doorways that frame an architectural feature beyond.

The Palmieries

by suvanki

I visited this area of Marrakesh by the Hop on - Hop off Marrakech tour bus (see my transport tip for more details)

It's also a short taxi ride from the city centre if you don't want to use this bus

Some exclusive hotels and houses, golf courses (where the King of Morocco can often be spotted playing a round of golf!), quad biking and camel rides can be seen and experienced here.

If You're only in Marrakech for a short while, and want to go home saying that you've ridden a camel (without having to travel to Zagora or Merzouga in the Sahara desert for the real thing) then this is the place to head for. I'm not sure how much it costs -it probably depends on your haggling skills, number in your party, what the camel owners business has been already that day as to the price you'll pay.

This might be a good bribe for those traveling with children/ teenagers, If You want to visit the 'boring' museums etc, promise them a camel ride/ Quad bike session later - if they behave!
