My parents, myself and my twin sister (we're 18 year olds) are looking to plan a magical family holiday before university splits us up. (I've been stuck with the planning, lucky me). Morocco sprang to mind as we've never experienced Africa, it is not hugely far to reach from our home in London, and it sounds as if it'll suit my dad's love of adventure, exotic landscapes and historical sites, and my mum's of tranquillity, luxury, and shopping for traditional gems. I've been doing some research and Marrakech sounds like a good place to locate ourselves. We hope to fly out on the 26th of August and return on the 31st. What's Marrakech REALLY like though? Does it sound suitable for our family? What sorts of things would you recommend we include in our itinerary during our time there? We're also interested in seeing the mountains and desert during our stay, but don't wish to spend any nights in those places - how much would it cost to reach them and would you recommend a guide?
Sorry about the vagueness of this, but I'd appreciate any help on anything at all really. Thanks a lot!
