To Fes or Marrakesch from Spain??

Jump to last reply

Hello, we (2 adults 4 kids) will be in Spain in september and are wondering if a side trip to Morocco is do-able. Unfortunately we will only have 3-4 days available, but feel we may not come back to this part of the world (it's a long way from Australia!) and should take the opportunity if we can- and Morocco sounds fascinating! I would appreciate any advice on how we might manage this ( with kids in tow we are not interested in being part of a tour group).
Options so far... 1.One idea is to take the ferry from Tarifa to Tangier and then a train to Fes. Has anyone done this, is the trip enjoyable? How long would this take including connections- we would hope for at least 2, maybe 3 nights in Fes with time to do a day trip to the town with the roman ruins?
2.The other thought is to fly of course, but more expensive and looking at budget airlines seems we would probably need to return to Madrid and go to Marrakesch. If this is the best option we might need to rethink our planning for going to southern spain.
3.???...any thoughts or suggestions?
