Airport Marrakech, see the snow peaks of the Atlas! 25 degrees, in January
Well, as a european traveller you may find Northern Africa quite surprising. Everybody tells you something different and everybody is right! So, the best is to discover the sites yourself! I adore cosy and luxury places, but also can very well acommodate in simple hotels, depending on my budget. But for a country as Marrocco I chose two different accomodations: a luxury hotel for international tourists for some nights and a private Riad for the rest of the stay. I believe I did the right choice. From the hotel I planned a private trip to Essaouira and rented the service of a tourist company that offered a car with driver for 150 €/day. We only were two, but it's up to 6 people the same price.

So we enjoyed the beautiful facilites of the hotel (due to the fact that it was in january, there was a special offer of a 70% (!) discount, what a bargain! Specially remarkable the HAMMAM!! Wow, what an experience! Wonderful!
But after 3 nights in the luxury atmosphere, it was enough! That was for sure not the true Marrakech! So we were ready to change to the Riad. I had chosen the Riad under a large variety of Riads, due to the date, another special offer, including breakfast, and free internet. At our arrivel in the popular district of Bab-Al-Doukala, I wondered if my choice had been appropiate, as the district was very dirty..... but once we entered into the Riad, I was sure I had found the right place! Jamina, the all-in-one cooker, housemaid and receptionist welcomed us and indicated us our room, that I had chosen due to the pictures at their website. We felt at home immediately. From the Riad, I had ordered the service of a professional tour guide and he picked us up for a walk to the old town of Marrakech. Within 3 hours he showed and explained us the most important details about the town, and I would recommend his service everytime. A very good professional! Thank you Radouan!! I will give further information in the next time.... there is a lot to tell and to recommend about the city!
