    Hi everyone, it was amazing trip. It did cross my mind how we would react If we were to share one place 24hrs like BB just for a few days, I think it would be a lovely TV reality show. I Love every minute of it and hope to see some of you again. Love to you all.

      Quite right too and with 12 lovely ladies between us we should get respect from the Moroccans.

    Hidden costs:
    You’ll probably end up buying a few souvenirs. Rugs, carpets, leather, woodwork, pottery and jewellery are all outstanding – and few travellers leave without something.

    Crime and personal safety
    Keep your luggage and money secure. Morocco does not have a high crime rate, but it is obviously unwise to carry large sums of cash or valuables on your person – especially in Casablanca and Tangier, and to a lesser extent Fez and Marrakesh. Mugging as such is pretty rare – those who fall victim to theft usually have things taken by stealth, or are subject to some kind of scam (see Guides, hustlers, conmen and kids). Credit card fraud is also relatively common, so don’t let the plastic out of your sight while using it, and keep an eye out when withdrawing money from ATMs.

    Hotels, generally, are secure and useful for depositing money before setting out to explore; larger ones will keep valuables at reception and some will have safes.

    February 4, 2014

  • Violetta

    The price of a meal ranging from £4/$6 to around £25/$35 a meal. Alcohol is really the only thing that compares unfavourably with Western prices: a bottle of cheap Moroccan wine costs £3.50/$5, a can of local beer about £1/$1.50 in the shops, £2.50/$4 in a normal bar, or £5/$7.50 in clubs.

    Inevitably, resorts and larger cities (Marrakesh especially) are more expensive than small towns with few tourists, but in remote parts of the country (including trekking regions in the High Atlas), where goods have to be brought in from some distance, prices for provisions can be high.ma

    Youth/student ID cards can save you a small amount of money, entitling you to cheaper entry at some museums and other sights, and a small discount on some ferry tickets and domestic airfares. They’re not worth going out of your way to get, but if you have one you may as well bring it along.

    February 4, 2014

  • Patricia P.

    Anybody got an idea of the exchange rate.

    February 3, 2014

    • John W.

      Apparently you can only get Moroccan money in Morocco and there are ATMs in Marrakech however I am taking cash to change. I asked the question about how much to take but did not receive an answer but food is supposedly cheaper. Perhaps our organisers can help?

      1 · February 4, 2014

    • Karolina

      I was planing to take cash as well I am not sure about ATM security in Marrakech and I don't wan to take any risk. But no idea how much should I take.... yes maybe she will be able to help.

    Hi - Grandad here. I have been reading about Marrakech on Wickitravel.org. One piece of advice that stood out was that it is rare to find toilet paper in hotels, restaurants or anywhere else! The rest was avoid walking alone, getting into taxis or being generally ripped off. There was good news as well with plenty to see, temperature in Marrakech about 23C in daytime, 15C at night and it wont rain.

    February 2, 2014

    • Karolina

      Yes, it will be all over the news next week :)

    Hi all .This time next week we will be in Marrakesh. I was wondering whether anyone knows how much time I need to allow to get from Gatwick BR Station (South Terminal) to get to our Meeting Point at the North Terminal? As I cannot seem to find the information on the Gatwick Airport website. Thanks.

      It's very straightforward. Enjoy the trip :-)

    The weather in Marrakech has been quite cool this week but warms up towards the end of next week, according to forecasts. At least it is going to be a whole lot drier than here.

    1 · January 30, 2014

    • Julia

      Thanks, john, keep us posted on weather, so we girls know what to pack

      January 31, 2014

  • John W.

    On the question of money: in UK I rely on plastic for just about everything but I am assuming most places that we go to will expect cash Does anyone have any idea how much we should take for meals and wine?

    January 23, 2014

  • Julia

    is it correct to say, we can only change currency once we arrive?

    January 21, 2014

    • Nena

      Hi Julia...I changed it when I got to Marrakech when I travelled and the rate seemed to be a little better. Nena

      January 22, 2014

    • Diviesh P.

      Just for information, you can only get the currency once you arrive there as its a closed currency - it's only traded within the country. I went to Marrakech back in Dec 2012 and I changed currency at the airport but we also found the rates offered at local currency exchange shops were very competitive.

      January 22, 2014

  • John W.

    I emailed Nena about clothing and footwear and her reply may be of interest to others: "I would say take layers as it will be warm during the day and cooler in the evening, maybe a shirt for the evenings. Walking boots would be good for when you go on the day trips"

    Looking at the party demographics I appear to be not the only male but also the grandfather of the party. In that case I expect to be well looked after and thoroughly spoiled.
