I am booking a weeks stay to Marrakech for June. I have booked Riu Tikida Palmeraie.
I would be grateful if anyone could help me...
Firstly, other than the shuttle bus I assume Taxis will be available, people on other forums have mentioned petit and grand taxis...What does that actually mean? and what prices should we expect?
Can anyone recommend any good trips and companies that provide them?
I would like to see the old town but i have seen people mention specific tours, would we need a specific tour guide, or could we go round them alone? I went to Egypt last year, so expect the same sort of "hassle" which was fine.
I would like to do a day trek in the Atlas Mountains and maybe visit a Kasbah, I have found the following itinerary from First Choice, yet it is £87...is that an average price I will find everywhere or are there better trips....
"2.5 hour drive through High Atlas Mountains to the Glaouis fortress of Telouet
Kasbah of Telouet - 30-minute tour
Drive to Ait Benhaddou
Lunch in the restaurant at Ait Benhaddou - one hour
Visit the Ait Benhaddou kasbah - one hour
Return to Marrakech via the Tichka Pass"
What other trips are advised? We don't feel the need to jam pack every day with a trip but would like to see as much as possible, else we might as well have gone to Spain! :)
Also, our holiday is all inclusive but we want to experience food outside the hotel, are there any recommended places to eat?
Sorry for all the rambling, I am rubbish at researching and never know what to trust, so I appreciate as much info as possible.
