Marrakech Express - Morocco by Train

[Tailor Made Holiday]

Summary

Morocco has a modern & reliable rail network; trains run from Tangier to Marrakech but you can start at any location with any route combination.

START - Tangier / FINISH - Marrakech

Activity code: MOHO06

Duration: 8 Days

A more interesting and environmentally responsible way to visit this fascinating country. Morocco's railway network has been systematically updated to offer Africa's first truly high speed trains, providing a comfortable and reliable service with new and pleasant stations awaiting you in many cities. This holiday itinerary makes the most of the current network although 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 (in either direction).

Our Marrakech Express package is an ideal choice if you who wish to experience the contrast between Morocco's many historic cities; travelling by train offers 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...

Important Information

City Tours include an English-speaking guide, all transport and entry fees to historic monuments; followed by an exploration of the souks and focal points of the medinas.

Flights available to book with us through a range of airlines, from various UK airports either out to Tangier and home from Marrakech or vice versa. Travelling to/from the same airport in Morocco would usually mean adding an extra night at the departure location as well as the return train tickets (or transfers). If we book your flights this means that your holiday will also be fully ATOL protected.
