Hi I am going to visit Morroco for 8 days in late November.

Day 1. Desert trip

Day 2. Desert trip

Day 3. Desert trip and back to Marrakash

Day 5. Day trip to Essaouira

Day 6. Marrakech and night bus to Fez

Day 7. Fez

Day 8. Day trip to Meknes

Day 9. Fez

Day 0. Fly to home.

Any suggestions ?

Thank you in advance :) !!!

You need 4 days and three nights for a desert trip.

Miss out Essaouira - you will travel for 7 hours that day there and back. It isn't worth it. Spend the time in Marrakech.

I take it you are flying out of Fes? If I were you, I'd take the late train there instead of the bus. You aren't going to see anything at night anyway and the train is far more comfortable. Travel 1st Class.

Which direction is your desert trip? If Erg Chebbi then it would be better to not go back to Marrakech but continue then to Fes instead. Erg Chebbi is halfways between Marrakech and Fes. But of course, if it is Erg Chigaga you want to see, then it is logical to go back to Marrakech.

Agree about to skip Essaouira.

I mean something like this trip :

Thank you , it's a good idea to skip Essaouira then and spend more time in Marrakech or Fes.

Stop at Meknes instead, rather than backtrack later.

Thank you !

How about a trip to Chefolchaouen ?

Is it worth it ?

Stenk, if I was you, I would not go back to Marrakech but continue to Fes from Erg Chebbi. Otherwise you will sit in the car then 12 hours with minimal stop, you arrive to Marrakech late and will be tired after this long journey.

0.Arrived and night in Marrakesh

1 . Marrakesh

2 . Marrakesh

3.4.5.6 Desert trip ending in Fez

7. Fez

8. Fez

9. Day trip to Meknes or going in the evening or late afternoon of 8th to Chefchaouen after spending a day in Fez, arriving just for dinner and sleep and going back to Fez on 9th evening.

10. Flight back

Please don't take 3 days tour to the desert. Minimum is 4 days, ideally 5-6.

Chefchaouen-Fez is a 4 hours bus ride. Going for a day although many people do, is not the best since you have only 5 hours to spend there taking the first and last bus.

Marrakesh-Fez takes the whole day and there's not a convenient night Train as you've seen. Do desert trip ending in Fez as said above.

Don't plan a tight schedule...traveling in Morocco is slow.

Now I see that 4 days / 3 nights desert tour is really much more affordable.

How about the weather in late November ?

Is it still good for trip like this via mountains ?
