About Marrakech Express - Morocco by Train
Morocco has a modern & reliable rail network; trains run from Tangier to Marrakech but you can start at any location with any route combination.
Activity code: MOHO06
Duration: 8 Days
A more interesting and environmentally responsible way to visit this fascinating country; Morocco's railway network has been updated to offer a comfortable and reliable service with new and pleasant stations awaiting you in many cities. This version of the itinerary makes the most of the limited network but we can offer any reasonable combination of journeys and locations. In our experience this is an ideal holiday option for those arriving from Spain or combining Morocco with Andalucia.
Our Marrakech Express package is an ideal choice if you who wish to experience the contrast between Morocco's historic cities; travelling by train will offer a fabulous insight into the day to day culture of modern Morocco as well as its famous past and does, of course, come with a much smaller carbon footprint...
Accommodation: we have personally chosen the riads in this itinerary; all of them offer high quality accommodation. You may prefer a small and friendly property or one of the luxurious boutique-style riads or perhaps a deluxe hotel with lots of facilities to enjoy during your stay, (please let us know if you'd prefer alternative accommodation).
Transport: to take the stress out of arriving and departing we offer a private airport [or port] transfer service. Also included are private transfers to and from your riads and the railway stations and the excellent train service (we will pre-book 1st class tickets for you).
Extra Information: We are able, through our local agency, to book activities and additional sightseeing, particularly in Marrakech - such as hiking, cookery classes, golf, quad biking, etc.
Flights are available to book through us with a wide range of airlines, from various UK airports. If we book your flights this means that your holiday will be fully ATOL protected.
NB. Extra nights in Marrakech or in the High Atlas or in Essaouira available on request.
Prices are on request and depend on your chosen accommodation and room availability as well as time of travel. Please take this into consideration when comparing prices; we always aim to match a high quality experience with exceptional value for money. Please note that discounts will apply if there are 4 or more people in your travelling party as fixed costs such as transportation and guides will be shared equally between the group.
Naturally, all rail transport and transfers TO your accommodation are included in this holiday but to save money and to provide full flexibility it makes sense to arrange taxis to the railway stations with your hotel reception.
City Tours include an English-speaking guide, all transport and entry fees to historic monuments, an exploration of the various souks and focal points of the medinas.
"My wife and I made a journey through Morocco during February. We decided that using trains and staying at riads would form a central part of our journey theme and are awfully glad we did. Our main advice and booking was aided by Andy and Dawn, Rediscover the World UK. We had a number of requests for guidance, all of which were met with patient, knowledgeable and practical responses. One city only offered very expensive options for a guide and we were left in no doubt that it was expensive and alternative solutions found. This is the mark of a good agent/adviser. One city had considerable restrictions on available accomodation owing to a music festival and still they managed to find something suitable. There was a lot of work involved in solving this, which we appreciate."
