2-3 days after Marrakech and 5 day tour

Hi. Spending 9 days in Morocco end of December, after visiting Paris and Portugal. Have 2 nights and a day in Marrakech, then 5 day / 4 night tour that includes Erg Chiggaga and trip through Taroudant, before spending another night in Marrakech. We then have 2 full days and 3rd day leave Casablanca at 8 p.m. for Lisbon. Open to ideas on how to spend the last 2 - 2 3/4 days in Morocco? Train to Fes too long and too far? Spend another day in Marrakech then Rabat for a day, and 1/2 day in Casablanca, before heading to airport? Essaouira for a day, then back to Marrakech or ??? Very open to ideas, I'm sure there are all kinds of possibilities. Thanks for your help. Charlie L

Hi Charlie;

You are Welcome to Morocco Travel forum;

Yes you have many options to take enjoying your trip in Morocco.

So just for the last days should not to be wasted as you have it for Essaouira, and a Day Trip to the High Atlas Mountains where you can get the Life time change experience the diversity enjoying the locals and the strong berber culture in Imlil appreciating the breathtaking beauty of the Mountains, and life style there.

In Essaouira you can make 2 days on it and a Day for the Th high atlas Mountains, and if you have more day or 2 leave it for Marrakech as you have a lot to experience in it, from Shopping, Hammam and Spa, exploring secrets of Marrakech by your own.

For Fes, Rabat and the Other side leave it to your next visit because the other side has a lot to offer as well, from Rabat, Chefchaouen, Meknes, Volubilis and Fes and the Erg Chebbi Desert in Case you don't visit it.

So for Fes is not Far as it's 7 Hours by Train from Marrakech but just keep those Days to explore and experience surrounding Marrakech places.

So information about Train and Supratours bus use : www.oncf.ma

Or Hiring a Rental Car and experience the Driving as well in Morocco as it's a part of your trip to make adventures and some experiences by locals as a part of Moroccan Culture.

Happy Travels and welcome to Morocco.

Hi Charlie,

I'd suggest you stay in Marrakech after your 5 day tour to recover from the travelling. You'll only have had one day in Marrakech at the beginning of your stay so won't have had time to see much at all. On your last day travel through to Casablanca in the morning, visit the mosque and get to the airport 2 hours before your flight.

Trying to do any more would be exhausting I'd say; don't try to do to much and don't try to "do Morocco" on a single short visit.
