Our trip to Morocco

My husband and I are looking to spend a 12-14 days in Morocco. We are interested in Fez,Marrakech and the Berber villages... Could you please comment on our pre-planned itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive to Casablanca airport around 2pm. Travel to Rabat.

Day 2: Rabat tour+ Travel to Fez

Day 3: Fez Medina Tour

Day 4: Day trip to Volubilis and Meknes

Day 5: Day Trip to Sefrou in the mnts.

Day 6: Travel to Midelt.

Day 7 and 8: Desert

Day 9: Todra and Dades

Day 10: Ouarzazate and Ait Benhaddou

Day 11: Travel to Marrakech

Day 12,13: Marrakech tour

Day 14: Marrakech-Casablanca airport.

Is this a good amount of time to see and expl,ore the places we want? Also is there other places that you recommend for a real cultural experience? We have heard so many good things about staying with the local Berbers in the mnts and the Sahara. Will you recommend something like that?

Sorry for my many questions and hope you will be able to help us plan this trip.

Regards,

Liza

Add the cave houses of Bhalil (not sure of the spelling) to the Sefrou trip.

On day six drive via Ifrane then Azrou to see the wild monkeys in the cedar forest, see tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g616013-c145720/Azr…

Most of your trip is on main roads used by every other tourist and I'd encourage you to get off them to see rural Morocco and villages.

Thanks Tim,

More questions:

-Do you think it would be easier for a first time visitor to use the public transportation? Or better to rent a car? Book a private tour( need recommendation)?

-Any recommendation for Riads/BB guest houses for Fez and Marrakech?

-Can we stay in the caves in Bhalil?

Thanks,

Liza

Hi Liza H. We were in Morocco this past January and can only recommend the Riads we stayed in. Riad Argan in Marrakech and Dar Seffarine in Fez. Both were great choices for us. We decided to book a tour from Marrakech to Fez via the desert and got to see lots of the 'real' Morocco -off the beaten path, so to speak. Try Jalil at ajalil197@yahoo.com. He was fabulous - really the best guide we have had in all of our travels. Feel free to PM me if you want more info.

For recommendations You don't need to listen to the first timers on TA, they are only spammers and Touts, advertising their businesses, Read the links of the right side of your screen under Top Asked Questions About Morocco, or use the Search box.

Your trip is well planned and it's doable.

Good Luck and have fun in Morocco.

Thank you Dina for your help. I just sent an email to Hassan regarding our trip and some info about Bhalil and the caves. Hopefully he will work sth out for us as we are very much looking into this tour which we were dreaming of since ages now. Thank you all.
