What time should I expect to return to Marrakech?
Ourika and Imlil excursions return to Marrakech around 4pm. Our experience is that it’s best to drive to your destination, enjoy your walk in the late morning away from the heat of the afternoon sun, have a leisurely lunch locally then return to Marrakech.
All our other excursions are scheduled to return to Marrakech before dark. This is because other road users including pedestrians, cycles and even tractors or cars very often do not use lights. Consequently it can be extremely difficult to proceed safely at a normal speed. Unlike the UK and the rest of Northern Europe day length does not vary much with the seasons. It usually goes dark around 6 to 7pm.
Can the driver drop me off to another location than the one he collected me?
That will be no problem, as long as the new location is on the excursion route or in Central Marrakech. For Riads in the old town medina you will be dropped at the nearest Medina gateway.
