  1. Hi there,

    I love Marrocco. It’s one of the most beautiful counties in the world,

    I had the chance to explore Tanger, Rabat, and Casablanca. Now I would love to travel to Marakesh. It must be even more beautiful:) How long do you think it will take to visit all Marakesh? One week? Two weeks? 

    Also, if you don’t mind, when would be the best time to visit Marakesh?

    Thanks a lot! I’ll certainly contact you very soon.

    • Hello Daniella, and Thank You for your feedback.

      Marrakech would require 3 full days to explore, but if you wish to do Marrakech and area, you will need to add 2 days for the charming city of Essaouira, and 2 days for the Berber villages/high atlas mountains. 1 week will do. But if you wish to add the desert with a camel ride and overnight in the Sahara plus a visit to the imperial city of Fez, you will need an extra 4 or 5 days, and that would make it a total of about 12 days.

      When ready, please feel free to contact us, and we will be more than happy to customize your Morocco tour based on your needs and desire.

      Kind Regards,

      Marrakech Morocco Tourism Team.

  2. It is sad that many countries still cannot enter Morocco, but is understandable as most of the countries mentioned have either high cases for the virus or are entering their next wave of the virus. The curfew time period 4:30 am till 11 pm. I am certain there are people who want to travel early and to go out late and experience the country at night time, and that is a big plus for folks who will be traveling to Morocco. My family needs some time off as we haven’t traveled in 2 years now, and Morocco looks like a great option. I will be in touch. Thank you for this important information regarding traveling to Morocco.

  3. Good government brings about the safety of its people. I never knew that all cases of Covid in Morocco got cured. It shows they took preventive and corrective measures as early as possible. Top of it is sealing their countries to other nations that will not take necessary precautions. Unlike other nations that politicized the well-being of their citizens. Thank You for sharing. I will be contacting Marrakech Morocco Tourism for planning my family trip as we need a vacation very soon.

  4. Aww, visiting Morocco would be like a dream come true. I have always pictured the Arab buildings with their painterly style. And the rich and interesting culture and history that surrounds Morocco. What I like the best is that I could start my journey from Spain. I can’t wait to start booking. Thank you very much for your post.

  5. Hi Akim

    what a pity I am on the list of countries where there is a travel ban in place as I would have been booking tickets today!

    Morocco seems absolutely breath taking and I am a huge foodie so the closest I have come to it is my tagine in which I prepare amazing morrocan flavoured dishes:)

    I am used to an african climate so I know what to expect and would just love to take in the history and culture. Will definitely be planning a trip when this covid nightmare subsides

    thanks for sharing

  6. Hello Akim, traveling during Covid-19 is very tricky to say the least. Your article is excellent as it gives all the necessary information and details. Morocco is a beautiful country. I have never been but I would love to be able to go. Thanks to your article, I now know that this is a valid option for my family’s next vacation.
