Agadir to Marrakech and safety?

Myself and my boyfriend are going to Morocco for the first week in September. We got a cheap package to Agadir but we've heard so much about Marrakech that we have booked 2 nights there and plan to travel there ourselves. I know it has probably been asked a million times but I am wondering about the best way to get there by public transport and also is it safe to wander around the souks without a guide? Are there any areas we should avoid? Any other advice on nice places to eat or to go greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Get your hotel in Agadir to arrange for a taxi. Don't pay more than 400 or 500 dirham one-way for the car, not per person.

It is safe to visit the souks without a guide.

You can also take the public bus, leaves several times a day, cheap and perfectly safe. No problems with the souks in Marrakech, although you will probably have to refuse a lot of more or less self appointed guides. If you find a nice one it could be worth-while though, as it is difficult to find your way around...We have experienced Morocco (south) as a safe country, so no need to worry. Except the usual reasons to look after your belongings etc it IS a very poor country! Have a nice time!

Hi

We stayed in Agadir and travelled to Marrakech by bus - you'll need to book it at the office before the day you intend to go. We couldn't book and had to turn up on the day - the man in the office was very helpfu. The office is behind the Sindbad Hotel.

Bus cost approx £10 return - you can book the return ticket there too. There isn't a bus station either at Agadir or Marrakech he bus stops on the road.

It takes approx 4 hrs but well worth it.
