Fes for Xmas, Marrakesh for New Year and chill out in Essaouira
UPDATE - WE NOW HAVE FINAL NUMBERS OF 9 ON THE TRIP. AS WE WILL BE BASED IN MORE THAN ONE HOTEL THEN SMALL GROUPS FOR ACTIVITIES ARE VERY MANAGEABLE.
3 BRITISH, 3 IRISH, 1 CANADIAN, 1 KIWI FROM AUSTRALIA, 1 AMERICAN DEFINITE ON TRIP
I have been to Morocco several times before and love it. I would like to go over Christmas and the New Year to escape the cold and traditional festivities in the UK. Weather can be variable over this time but last time I visited in December it was about 20 degrees in Marrakesh.
Happy for people who want to join me for all the trip or just part. I like to go away with others but everyone who joins the trip is free to join in for all or none of activities whilst there. Going away as a small group works well as then you are usually able to find someone to join you in what you choose to do.
Will be flying from London and staying in traditional accommodation - seperate rooms with own bathroom. Lots of spa treatment options for relaxing in Essaouira.
So here are final details as I realised dates have changed a little over the post due to flights only on certain days:
Fes 19th Dec - 26th Dec Dar Berrada
Flight from Fes 26th Dec - AirArabia to Marrakesh - afternoon flight (possible to take train but an all day travel)
Marakesh 26th Dec - 4th Jan Riad Al Mida
We will all travel on the bus together to Essaouira.
Essaouira 4th Jan - 9th Jan Hotel Al Arboussas
Bus back to Marrakesh takes about 4 hours so may need to stay for last night (8th) in Marrakesh
You may wish to stay a little longer in Essaouira - it's my favourite place in Morocco.
