Morocco Planing Help - 9 nights this fall

Jump to last reply

OK… I’m finally sitting down to get our Morocco trip in order. My wife and I are pretty experienced travelers, but I’d love to hear your ideas on itineraries, hotels/riads, tours, etc. The trip is planned for Sept 28 though Oct 8 (so 9 nights in Morocco). Thanks in advance.

1) We are flying from EWR to Rabat (on freebie Delta Skymiles tix). It’s the redeye from EWR to CDG and then from CDG on to Rabat. The layover is just under 2 hours.
2) Given that the layover is relatively short, I figured that we’d spend our 1st night in Rabat just in case we run into flight issues.
3) We plan on taking the trains between cities (except for transit from Fes to Marrakech). Everything I’ve read about the trains seems positive. Any thoughts?
4) Nights 2 and 3 in Fes.
5) Nights 4, 5 and 6 on a tour from Fes to Marrakech. I’ve seen a few good recommendations on these types of tours. Any opinions on an itinerary or tour company? Our other option is to make this a 2 night tour and spend an additional day in either Marrakech or Fes or somewhere else. Opinions?
6) Nights 7 and 8 in Marrakech.
7) Night 9 in Rabat.
8) Our flight leaves Rabat at 1:45pm and gets into Paris at 5pm. We then have a layover until 1:35pm. Our current plan is to go into Paris, have dinner, spend the night and return to the airport, but would love your opinions.

Is there anything else we should take into account? Anything that we absolutely must see or things we should add to the itinerary?

Thanks in advance!
