Re: Currency for Marrakech

Alison, I went on the Marrakech trip in April. It is very easy to get local currency once you are there. I changed some GBP at the airport while waiting for the bags to come out as there was nobody waiting, leave it too long and there will be a queue . Otherwise, when you get to the hotel there is a...

Re: Marrakech holiday

Marianne. Thanks for your comments on the holiday, its good to know that all went well. Any tips that you could pass on which may be handy to know in advance? Can you walk from the hotel to some places for sight seeing. Anything you can pass on would be helpful. Thanks. Marigold

Re: Marrakech holiday

I have taken the plunge and booked on the Marrakesh Solo Tour departing 30th March from Gatwick and staying overnight at the Premier Inn which says it is opposite the North terminal so hopefully just a short walk at 4.30am!.

Re: Marrakech holiday

I am 90% decided to go on the Marrakesh holiday at end of March, departing Gatwick. As it is a 7.40 am flight and I live in Northamptonshire I will need to travel down the day before and stay in a hotel at Gatwick. Has anyone done this and have recommendations. Anyone going on the March holiday?

Re: Another 'Newbie'

Hello Ann. I am new to the forum too but what I have read has been very encouraging and it is great to have a company which caters for people like ourselves who want to travel but don't have people who want to go to the same places that we do, so we need to go on our own. I do have a partner but he ...
