Need alot of help please

we are planning to travel to marrakech from 6th april for 7 to 10 days. lots to plan, lots of questions, any input would be appreciated. I read quite alot of posts, but alot of them dated back some years ago.

1, taxi for 6 people from marrakech airport to marrakech, how much is current rate please?

2, better rate to exchange money at airport or at marrakech? any recommended currency places?

3, we like to do a little bit of trekking at altas mountain, but not too long or difficult as we got young children with us(age 8 to 12), we are into photography, got our eyes on 2 locations, imlil and the cascades waterfall in Azilal, are the locations quite far apart? possible to see in one day? how easy is the route? can we get a taxi to imlil and trek by ourselves? or pay separately for a guide at imlil to take us? are the guides more expensive to hire from marrakech or imlil? a rough guide on price would be very helpful.

4, do you think it's too cold at night in april to do an overnight desert trip? we are still deciding desert or mountain, don't think we got time to do both.

sorry for so many questions, I am sure we will come up with more questions as we plan, thanks for any help.

1. If you switch to your question on the Marrakech forum about taxis, and look to the right of the screen you will find airport taxis are under 'top questions'.

2. Look to the right of this screen and you'll see a topic 'banks and money' under top questions.

3. Imlil is south of Marrakech, the Cascades are in Ouzoud, not Azilal, and are north east. Both are doable in one long day trip, but not together. Yes you can get a taxi and walk yourselves. Or get a guide. Only mountain guides are able to guide you in the Imlil area (regulations). Lots of previous threads on the subject, stick 'imlil guide' into the search box. Also check out http://www.imlil.org

4. A trip to the sand dunes will eat up four days of your holiday. Weather is never predictable but it shouldn't be as cold as January.

Many thanks for your help, I was a bit confused obtaining information. I think we will go for the mountain with the limited time of our stay. do you know any maps of the Altas mountain that shows all the interest points? can you recommend other picturesque places we can go on the same day as Imlil please?
