Casablanca is a very long way from Marrakech and will not only be very expensive in a Grand Taxi but also possibly very uncomfortable, depending on the state of repair of the car.

You would be quicker travelling by train (around 3 hours 10 minutes) or, if you really want to travel by car, I would recommend hiring a private driver for the day. The usual rate is around 125 euros per day but may be less.

A first class ticket from Casablanca to Marrakech on the train is around 13 euros per person - first class means a specific seat number and aircon, so you would want to choose that. You can't reserve or buy tickets outside of Morocco, unfortunately, but the website for info is here http://www.oncf.ma/Pages/Accueil.aspx

Sorry, I meant to say "cheaper" travelling by train not "quicker" as the drive time is also 3 - 4 hours depending on traffic. (I'm trying to do 4 things at once and therefore not doing any of them particularly well!) However, I would still say that 3 hours in some grand taxis would be a potentially hot and uncomfortable experience, so make sure you pick one with aircon and nice upholstery.

You don't need to pre-book a grand taxi, just negotiate when you get there but be prepared to haggle and be aware they might not know exactly where your riad is. Plus, it may not be directly accessible by road so you might want to consider getting someone from the riad to meet you and escort you there, if necessary. They can arrange a porter for your baggage etc.

Just picking up on the last paragraph in post 2. My experience of grand taxi's has been that they only drop off at certain places en route and then go to a central taxi rank. It is the job of the local taxi to take people to local places.

Also, if you were to use a grand taxi you would be best to pay for the car for sole use - 3 or 4 people squashed on the back seat for any distance is not the best way to enjoy a long journey.

Your best options would be either train or, as I suspect you are really asking for, some kind of private hire company that has mpv's or mini buses.
