HELP!!!! on Excursions!

by Alik7811

I need some help. I am completely lost I want to book some excursions online for 4 things to do from marakkech with my girlfriend, but all I can find is foreign western websites and no local ones from morocco to book them on that look decent and safe and are in english.
I wanted to do the following from Marakkech:
1. Cascades D'Ouzoud
2. Sand Dunes, Camel Rides in Desert at sunset.
3. Tour of Marrakech souks/old city etc.
4. Traditional romantic dinner with belly dancer/snake charmers/musicians

Could you possibly help me and tell me roughly how much this would be?
I am staying in the Riad Nejma, have you ever heard of that?

You can book all tours in Marrakech. There are several agencies just off the main square or have a look at www.saharaexpe.ma
A 1 night/2 day Sahara trip to Zagora is about 65Euro, or a 2 night/3 day trip to Merzouga is 90Euro.
We went to Zagora which is a long drive there and back in 2 days but planty of gorgeous scenery and lots of stops en route. The camel ride once we reached the desert was great for a short time but the novelty certainly wore off after 30 minutes or so. Worthwhile doing it however.
You will also be able to book city tours once you arrive but it is also very easy navigate your own way around if you have a guide book and map.
We ate at Dar Moha in the Medina which was lovely...about 45Euro/head plus drinks (wine from 15Euro/bottle). Book earlyish so you can get a poolside table. No snake charmers or belly dancers but tasteful musicians playing a range of local music.Very romantic!
Enjoy!

This is the problem and most frequently complained about issue on tours, that no one speaks english.However I was stopped in the street the other day and given a brochure in english from a company called'imagine le voyage', with offices in the medina,and I was so impressed at the prices quoted I nearly jumped on a camel and went myself.For example ,Merzouga, one night in a tent with dinner,800dirhams per person.Their web site is www.saharaexpe@menara.ma and they are recommended by Lonely Planet.They do all the things you mentioned and more.Your riad should be able to provide you with excursions and tours,email them to find out more.If you are unable to book on line I suggest you book when you arrive in Marrakesh as it is relatively easy to do in situ.Hotel Ali also do all the sahara tours and Oulrika valley.

Peace -

ShelteringSky, when I type www.saharaexpe@menara.ma in I just get the normal Menara website (ADSL adverts, animated Coke bottles mating, etc.) Is there another site address....? What you wrote looked promising...

If you google 'Imagine the voyage' which is another name for that company Sahara Expeditions,it comes up sans coke bottles having sex and the brochure is on there and all the addresses and tel numbers etc,but I have found a better one with the unfortunate name www.itineranceplus.com who are cheaper and look/sound good having quizzed the sales boy outside their offices.

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Clothing

by Acirfa

This is an Islamic country and it is required that ladies cover up, if you don't you will feel conspicuous. Covered shoulders and long shorts or skirts and trousers.
Some good walking shoes with grip if you intend to take a trip into the mountains

Taxies

by diageva

You can move around the city also with the Petit Taxies and with the Grand Taxies ... The firts ones are for sharing ... so they can pic 3 persons ... and are cheaper than Grand Taxies ... a medium fare of the pettit taxies are around 10 dirham ... if you go to the airport is around 60 dirham ( 100 dirham if you take it at night )
If you are at a bus stop is normal to take a petit taxy between 3.

The walls

by Oana_bic

The city walls, built in the XII century and subsequently destroyed and rebuilt, are about 15 kilometres long, reddish in colour and two metres thick. It has powerful ancient ramparts, various styles and many monumental doors, among which the Bab Aguenaou stands out for its magnificence. It dates back to the era of the Almoravids and leads to the quarter of the kasbah.

the souks

by call_me_rhia

Visit the souks around Djema el Fnaa... the farther you go from the square, the more interesting the souks become - because they are selling fewer tourist junk. I am normally more fascinating with souks seeling food or spices, though this time we did not buy much... we were looking for saffron, but the quality wasn't that good, really.

Still, it's always a delight to stroll about and see what it is being sold - smell the perfumes and admire the colours. The covered souk, thogh very touristy, is also an ice place to walk about and people watch... on our first day we spotted a very well-known Italian magistrate.

City O Rouge

by stappm

"7 Days in Morocco"

Started well. Marrakech is a very bohemian city. Lots of smells, lots of tourists (French mostly), lots of people. Kind of expensive. For me it would have been a nice 2-3 day visit - it really burned me out after 4 days and on day 7 i realized i would never go back. It reminded me of Tijuana, Mexico.
