Hi everyone!

I'm planning a trip to Morocco at the end of April, I'm just wondering if there are any places that you would recommend and how long do you think would be enough time to do and see everything without it feeling rushed?

If you want a round trip you should at least use 2 weeks. I would recommend the mountain cities in Anti Atlas mountains and of course some days in Marrakech.

It really depends on you.

Morocco is a surprisingly big and very varied country. You could be riding a camel through the Sahara or concievably skiing in the Atlas. Shopping in the souks or hiking in the mountains. If you are a keen photographer Essaouira and Chefchaouen would be fascinating. If you are a shopper the souks of Marrakech will be addictive. Adventure? Luxury? Tell us a little more about what you want to experience.

I'm defiantly more of an adventure person, hiking and camel riding are something I want to do whilst there and also visit the blue city in chefchaouen. Are there any must see places that you guys would recommend? Also what's transport like?

For camels, Erg Chebbi (Merzouga). For hiking, I'd say Tassaoute but it's very difficult to get to without private transport. The conventional option would be the Toubkal national park, but there's very good walking North of Chefchaouen too. The trains are excellent and cheap, but it's worth paying the premium for 1st class as you get a guaranteed seat. Buses are to be avoided. If you must, stick to CTM and Supratours. Grand taxis are better than they were, but check car and driver carefully. If you are driving yourselves, familiarise yourself with 'priorité à droite', and don't hire the smallest car possible. If you can afford it, hire a transport touristique 4x4 and driver.

As im moroccan guide, and expert in organization trips, you need at least 2 weeks to discover desert and high mountains Atlas, with tours in the imperial cities as Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat,Fez and Mekness, if still time you can visit other cities like Agadir, and Essaouira.
Im ready to presents you all details about safe trip if you want just contact me.
