planning to take a trip to morocco in december for about 10-12 days. my friend and I, would like to experience the culture along with having a good time. We would like, to sleep in a updated riad, live the berber life for about 2-3nights and then a hotel. Any good recommendations? Also, on another travel site, it stated if we stayed in tangier, we could catch a ferry to some parts of italy(genoa) spain or france...anyone now of this info?! Any info, would be appreciated!
also, if anyone is travelling there during this time and won't to hook -up and explore the town, leave a message!
I visit Morocco 1 year ago, and had a great time, we hooked with a tour operator himself, and we toured the south east of the country, it was an amazing tour. you may google our guide's name [ Youssef Aitha ] I dont remember his website.
I never been to tangier, but hopefully we will take the ferry and spend 3days in this city as I heard so many beautiful things about it.

Through your Holiday to Morocco you could travel to Marrakech for a few days to discover the madina then Cross the High Atlas Mountains through Tizi n Tichka in order to arrive to the Hollywood of Africa ( Ouarzazate ) do not miss to visit the kasbah of ait ben haddou where they have been filming a lot of movies like: La Momia,Gladiator,Babel..... you can go also to Merzouga dunes where you can spend a night under berber tent through the road of one thousand Kasbahs, and Roses valley,Todgha Gorges, then heading to Fes,Chaouen,Tanger from there you take a ferry to spain.
Just to correct the previous member, Babel was filmed in Tazzarine, Our guide took us to some old village which they used as background.
I am from South east of Morocco anyway thanks. The movie was filmed in some parte of Morocco the first one was near the kasbah of ait ben haddou when they make a tent then the second if you see through the movie while the kid shoot on Nicola who was with Brad Pitt that was in Anti-Atlas Mountain ( the pass of Tizi-n'tnififte between Ouarzazate and Agdz )....
