In many cities there are free walking tours available
You can start with a tour and go on from there, why a detailed itinerary up front?

Hi so youve already booked a car..i shouldve gone ahead and put the link to the friend of a friends company as all the years ive been renting getting on to him was a breath of fresh air for good cars at lowest prices and good service.
Usually even the local morocan businessmen stick to the expensive international compsnies to reduce their risk of getting a dud which i never have nor referrals to him have.
Same with knowing where to stay..most foreigners who get to know Morocco and become addicted and move to Morocco as guides etc say the same its because they want to help others get to see the beauty of Morocco and stay at places discovered to be good and deserving of referrals rather than thr places that still dont up their game with dirty hotel rooms or poor menus etc. And nothing makes me happier than sending prople to well run places that are hanging out for business and deserving of it versus the ones who have a constant supply of groups delivered by commission hungry guides etc

Where have you alrrady booked?
I would recommend staying at hassans at maison afoulki at telouet. He and his wife provide utmost lovely reliable haven type stays up behind the souk. Which is eirth seeing eednesdayscand thuesdays.
See the kadbah most definitely and the old slave village.
And visit Tasgha. Have lunch there. Hassan could take you or Aissa from Dar Aissa who also is one of the guides at kasbah telouet.
The drive thru to tamdaght at ait benhaddou is a highlight so go slowly and enjoy the scenery, have a few photo stops.
Tamdaght kasbah is worth visiting as is ait benhaddou of course.
I can recommend several places to stay there.
Next day ait benhaddiu and ouarzazate. You could go stay at flint if you wanted and theres a kasbah complex that side of ouarzazate.
Then skoura and kelaa mgouna and up the dades gorge from boulmane
If you want a real splashout with pool etc have a night at kasbah xaluca boulmane.
Am going to switch to my laptop and add a bit more shortly.

Have you got a guidebook yet such as the Lonely planet as then youll have the recommended places to visit and logistical info at your fingertips without worrying about , which i dont understand either, any detailed itinerary ....yes the Djma elfna is just one of the places to take note of in Marrakech.

Hi Soufiane and welcome to TP :)

Angie has some amazing tips on Morocco.

When we visited we took a guided trip with saharadreamsmaroc. Our guide Habib and the owner was absolutely amazing..... taking us well off the beaten path and having food with his family, camping under the stars, riding camels out of the desert and having tea with nomads in their cave in the middle of nowhere. Normally hubby and I drive ourselves. We have done quite a few road trips around Europe, Canada and the States. But here we wanted to sit back and discover the authentic Morocco, mixing with the locals.

However if you are hiring a car then I have a blog here on the places we went to and things we saw that might help starting on our adventures in Marrakesh. Just click next page when you get to the end to move on.
