Morocco Imperial Cities & Sahara Desert - Any recommended itinerary ?

Jump to last reply

Finaly we decided to visit Morocco in September with my husband, my 7 year old daughter, and my 10 year old son. Unfortunate timing, but this is the only time we can do the trip!

A possible itinerary is as follows:

Day 1 (Saturday) - Arrive in Rabat in mid-afternoon. Check into hotel, look around Rabat.

Day 2 (Sunday) - Meknes/Volubilis/Fez. Dinner and overnight in Fez.

Day 3 (Monday) - Fez

Day 4 (Tuesday) - Fez

Day 5 (Wednesday) - Drive to Erfoud or Merzouga. (Recommendations?) we are interested in camel trek..night in desert...sandboard ( here is the full itinerary: http://www.morocco-excursion.com/Camel-trekking-in-Morocco.htm )

Day 5 (Thursday) - Drive to Ouarzazate or Skoura. (Recommendations?)

Day 6 (Friday) - Drive to Marrakech

Day 7 (Saturday) - Marrakech

Day 8 (Sunday) - Marrakech

Day 9 (Monday) - Drive to Casablanca for 4:00 flight

Recommendations as to whether I should have a pre-arranged private tour for this? Or should I only have a pre-arranged guide for the desert portion, and then get guides for each city at the hotels?

Any activities/sites that were particularly successful with your children?
