Morocco and Portugal in Fall of 2015

Jump to last reply

My wife and I, from California, USA, are planning a trip to Portugal and Morocco during last week of Sep thru first week of October. After spending a week in Lisbon we are either planning to drive to Gibraltar to take the ferry to Tangier or fly from Lisbon to Casablanca. The drive to Gibraltar may take two days but will give a chance to see south of Portugal while flying to Casablanca will give us more time in Morocco. We have been to Europe many times but never to Africa.The following are my quires for you folks:
1. Is a week in Morocco for the first trip a good enough time? If so what are the towns must to see.
2. If we get to Tangier by ferry how do we travel in Morocco to get to other destinations- bus, train, rental car, etc.
3. Is it safe to travel in Morocco without a conducted tour or a tour guide? What precautions we should take.
4. At present we are targeting Tangier, Casablanca, and Marrakesh as destinations. Should we add or subtract any destination with about a week of time to spend in Morocco?
5. Is English as a primary language an issue while travelling in Morocco?
6. What would be a good accommodation type- We normally travel by booking apartments thru Air B&B. Is it safe to do so in Morocco or should we stay at hotels?
I would sure appreciate your guidance on our exciting trip to Morocco.
Thanks in advance.
