Morocco in March with two children??

Am thinking about visiting Fes and Marrakech in March next year- have an 11 year old and a 13 year old - is this a good time of year and anything else I should be aware of travelling in Morocco with children?

We have booked a trip to Morocco this March with our kids ages 11 and 14. We will be doing Marakkech, Merzouga (desert trip), and Fez. If you look back a few months there was a post by a family who went to Morocco this summer. They used the Blue Men of Morocco. We are also using them for the desert and Fez portions of our trip but will be doing Marakkech on our own. From everything I've read so far it seems like a great place to visit with the kids.

Dont worry too much about spicy food. Nothing in Morocco approaches the spice levels of Thai or even Indian cuisine. Do beware the kefta (ground meat) kebabs. Stick to chicken or lamb/beef (not ground) and be sure they're well cooked. Some immodium should suffice if you succumb to the common grumbly tummy. Pharmacies here stock a variety of medicines too.

We're also travelling to Morocco in March with our 12 and 9 year old kids. I think it's a good time of year to go. We're spending our time in Marrakech, Essaouira and the Atlas Mountains (may be cooler there). We've planned our tour with assistance from Heritage Tours. They got a great reco from Travel and Leisure magazine and they seem knowledgeable and professional.
