I would not hire a car in Marrakech, they are the scariest roads I have ever seen and I've been to Rome so that is saying something
Find an open view and wait for the sunset, it is worth it
Only 18% of Moroccans speak English so booking English-speaking tour guides is a good idea
Good to know
The culture in Marrakech is very different to the UK so be aware and vigilant, especially if you are a woman.
It is recommended for women to cover up, from their shoulders to ankles.
The currency in Marrakech, Morocco is Moroccan Dirham.
In reality, the best time to visit is all year round due to tropical climate.
Avoid the tap water at all costs, buy bottled water even for brushing your teeth.
Marrakech can be considered an inexpensive destination to visit, of course some hotels will be expensive but overall you will need little spending money
