Top Tips

Pre-book your tour through to the Atlas Mountains before you go to get the best price

BARTER, BARTER, BARTER everywhere you go, street stalls and markets especially

Make sure you try the green tea, it will put to shame any you have had before

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
