Any advice on our rough itinerary for Morocco would be greatly appreciated!
We are there for 2 weeks, flying in and out of Marrakech.
My partner and I both enjoy just soaking up the atmosphere - he is an avid photographer and I love exploring markets/people watching. We of course want to see the 'highlights' but really just want to get a sense of who and what Morocco is in the short period we are there.
I have never been to a desert before but my partner has been to Egypt/Jordan and did a tour there. As he has done this before he isn't too keen on the desert part of the trip but I would quite like to go.. would you recommend it? or do you think we should cut this out?
I am concerned we are trying to pack too much in- but we do want to see as much as possible.. but then I don't want to be stressed and we both do enjoy just exploring the towns and chatting to locals etc. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!!
So far our journey looks like this:
26 Dec: - arrive Marrakech
27th – Marrakech
28th – Marrakech
29 – Desert tour starts (book a 4 day, 3 night tour Marrakech to Fes)
30th – desert tour
31st – desert tour
1st Jan – arrive Fes (early evening)
2nd – Fes
4th – Fes – Chefchaouen (as early as possible by bus)
5th – Chefchaouen to Fes then catch overnight train to Marrakech
6th – Marrakech to Essaouira by bus
7th – Essaouria - Marrakech
8th - depart Marrakech – London.
Thank you so much!
