MARRAKESH

The red city - Morocco's ancient imperial capital

The most visited city in Morocco and for good reason - a mixture of traditional and contemporary, Marrakech holds the promise of incomparable sensations.  Stroll through the Jemaa El Fna and the bazaars with their bright colors and oriental scents, ride in horse-drawn carriages, visit sun-soaked terraces, observe street artists practising their craft, relax in a traditional hamam, take a daytrip to the atlas mountians, explore museums, palaces and gardens. There's so much to do in Marrakesh that the hardest thing will be fitting it all in.  Why not check out these tours for some ideas of things to do?

How to get from Taghazout, Tamraght, Agadir & Anza to Marrakesh

 

We are not currently running our shuttles from Taghazout, Tamraght, Agadir & Anza to Marrakesh, but we will be starting them again soon! 

 

In the meantime, this is how to get to Marrakesh:

 

1: Take a taxi to the Agadir bus station (located here), this takes about 25 minutes and should cost 150 dirham (€14) from Taghazout or Tamraght.  The taxi journey from Agadir or Anza is quicker and cheaper.  Taxi prices in morocco are somewhat 'negotiable', so you may have to haggle to get a good price... defintely do not pay more than 200 dirham for this trip though!  

 

2: Take the bus to Marrakesh, this trip takes 3.5 hours and costs €14 per person (book tickets here).  I would recommend using supratours or CTM as these are the more reliable companies.  You should arrive at the bus terminal at least 15 minutes before departure, also if you have large bags you will need to buy luggage passes (~ €2 per bag)

 

3: From either the Supratours or CTM bus terminals it is around a 10 minute taxi to most hotels.  Do not pay more than 100 dirham (€10) for this trip and it should really be closer to 50, again you will need to use your haggling skills!  If you are staying in the medina you will probably have to walk the final part as most accommodation is not accessible by car

Total time around 5 hours

 

Total price for 1 person ~ €40

Total price for 2 people ~ €55

Total price for 3 people ~ €70

Total price for 4 people ~ €85

 

If you would like a quicker and easier journey you can book a taxi here.  A taxi takes around 3.5 hours and costs €120 for 1-4 people, or €140 for up to 6 people

2: Get the bus to Agadir, this trip takes 3 hours and costs €14 per person (you can book tickets here).  I would recommend only using Supratours or CTM as these are the more reliable companies.  You should aim to arrive at the bus terminal 15 minutes before departure, also if you have large bags you will need to buy luggage passes (~€2 per bag)

 

3: From the Agadir bus terminal it is a 25-minute taxi to Taghazout or Tamraght and should cost 150 dirham (€15), but often the drivers will ask for 200 dirham or more, so try to negociate!  The taxi to Anza or Agadir should cost less than 100 dirham
