Marakesh day trip from Agadir - worth it?

Going to Agadir in the summer and my wife is keen to visit Marakesh. I understand there's a day trip starting at 6am and returning midnight, with a 3 hour journey each way. Anyone done it? Know the cost and whether they'd recommend it's a trip worth making?

No doubt there are many organised day trips, but this is something you can do yourself just as easily. It's only a matter of wandering down to the coach offices and buying a return ticket.

However... I would very strongly suggest you make this an overnight trip so you get to see Djemaa el Fna at night time and have a more leisurely stay. You don't have to spend a fortune on a hotel, somewhere like Hotel Ali is OKish and within a stone's throw of the action, see http://www.hotel-ali.com/

Hi,

I'd agree, Marrakech is not a day trip destination so please aim for at least an overnight stay to give yourselves time to experience a bit more rather than be rushed round a few main attractions by your tour organiser and then taken back to Agadir the same day.
