Airports in Marrakech

The airport itself is about ten kilometers from the city center, making the trip by car a short 15-minute ride. There aren’t any other airports in Marrakech, so you don’t have to worry about finding out which airport you’ll be arriving at or leaving from.

 Arriving there:

  •  You will need an embarkation card before arriving at the queue for passport control, so make sure you have a pen on you.
  • There are money-changing outlets in the Arrival halls where you can exchange your money.
  • There is one ATM in Terminal 1 and one in Terminal 2.
  • You can purchase a SIM card in a booth at the arrival hall.

Transportation from the airport:

There are two ways you can get from the Marrakech airport to downtown – either by bus or by taxis.  

  •  Taxis - The taxi “journey” starts before you even leave the airport. You’ll find hoards of taxi companies coming up to you trying to get you to ride with them – but do not surrender yet! These companies usually have much higher rates and simply walking outside of the airport to the parked taxis outside gives you an instantly lower price.
  • By Bus - For a fun trip try taking a bus! It will give you a nice tour around the city as the journey goes through multiple stops, giving you a quick overview of the city. The bus service (line 19) has hourly departures from 6.30 a.m to 11:30 p.m so if you’re arriving really late at night or early in the morning do not depend on the bus.
  • Extra: Pick up and airport transfer services - You can also pre-book a private bus transfer in advance to avoid the hassle of negotiating, getting on buses, or finding a way to get from the Marrakech airport to downtown. Your driver will immediately pick you up after you’ve passed customs and will take care of everything from that moment onwards.

The Real Souks Experience: Artisans & Their Crafts

eind september begin oktober ben ik met mijn dochter naar Marakesh gegaan .
Dit is een fanatisch en geweldige oude stad met zeer veel oudheden en interessante dingen om te doen.
Echter ! Je zult een vreemde stad nooit zo goed en volledig zien als door de ogen van een goede gids.
en dat is precies wat wij hadden, een zeer goede, vriendelijke en vooral interessante gids, die meer wist te vertellen dan het verhaaltje dat ze meestal hebben.
wij wilden twee dagdelen bezichtiging bij hem boeken, en wij kenden hem niet , puur op gevoel, echter hij stuurde ons een mailtje terug, waarin hij zeer vriendelijk in uit legde dat dat waarschijnlijk teveel zou zijn voor ons.
hij wilde liever een tocht goed doen, dan twee af te rafelen.
hij heeft toen in zijn eigen tijd ons meer laten zien, en veel meer uitgelegd dan de basis dingen, hij vertelde ook wat te doen bij taxi's etc.
mocht ik nog een keer terug gaan, en dat gaat zeker gebeuren, dan pak ik weer Khalil als gastheer,
echt een prima vent.
ps, hij heeft zelf ook een riad in de oude stad, misschien interessant in combinatie met stadsrondleidingen.
groeten van Danielle en Alain

A customized trip with Farido

We booked a 3 day trip to the desert from home. It was all perfectly planned. Farido picked us up from the airport and arranged the entire trip to the Merzuga desert and an extra trip to Ouzoud. the trip was very personal and not at all "touristy", just as we wanted it. We have had some wonderful experiences thanks to Farido. We highly recommend both the trip to the desert and North Africa's largest waterfall in Ouzoud with Farido. Amazing places. Thank you very much for everything! And we hope to see you in the future.
The best greetings
Simon & Christina
