Travel review feb 2013

Loved it! The whole experience was full on and really good fun.

Found everyone friendly and good humoured even when we wouldn't part with our cash.

I researched here before we traveled and was mostly prepared for the little scams and tourist traps. One tip we weren't ready for, if you are offered something for free......it isn't! Lol one biscuit seller near to koutoubia was lovely and chatty and gave us a free sample, then stood until we gave him something, this was on the first morning so lesson learned....

Ate loads of good food, had loads of lovely photo opportunities and got lost till our heart was content!

The orange juice is delicious and a welcome relief from the hot days. It was chilly by night but not by British standards.

Didn't find the hassle intense was just a good laugh.....just smile and crack a joke and its well received.

Morning on the square was quiet, sunset great and night time very atmospheric.

Make sure you get lots of change to pay for the entertainment, something we struggled with! Couldn't seem to spend enough money!

Wasn't impressed with the monkey handlers, constant chain tugging and hitting with sticks didn't do it for me. Neither did the array of animals and body parts available from the medicine stalls.

The horses in the caleche traps seemed well cared for on the whole and a water trough is used frequently.....having said that, still wouldn't use one.

Tuk tuk ride through the souk was worth the money for the experience! So funny!

Majorelle gardens amazing.......menara gardens, waste of an hour.

Took a trip to ourika valley and the waterfalls with an organised excursion. Was disappointed as it was quite spoiled with litter, numerous restaurants and hundreds of plastic chairs along the banks of the river. Mentioned this to the riad owner on our return who advised us that the best places to visit in ourika are futher past the tourist spot......so take heed!

Can't wait to return...planning a trip in the autumn.

It was lovely and warm, just like a good summers day in the uk. Sundown got chilly though, need a cardigan!
