The best way to get around Marrakech is on foot, especially in the medina and souks, where he is the only reasonable option. However, you will need transport to visit the most distant sites of Marrakech and to shuttle between the Medina and the new part of town.
TaxisTaxis in Marrakech are numerous, cheap, and normally the most convenient way to visit attractions outside of Marrakech Medina. There are two types of taxis in Marrakech. Grand taxis are usually old Mercedes cars carrying up to six people for a fixed rate on specific routes. Many large taxi from the bus station in Marrakech, Jemaa el Fna "and the post office in the new city. Petit taxis can be hailed down, are smaller, more expensive, and go anywhere. Taxis can be hired for tours and excursions. Limousines can be hired for longer trips.Taxi drivers are supposed to put on their counters. Sometimes they do not and just ask for a flat rate of 20 dirhams. Again, some have been lucky in the past, so that they may increase this amount to 40 dirhams or more. In general, taxis can charge 50% more during the night.If they have not put their meter, then you can ask them. Either they will (rates start at 1.60 dirhams during the day and at night 2.40 dirhams), or they simply say that it does not work. At this point, you can choose to agree on a rate or get another taxi-depends on whether you're in a hurry and if there are many more empty taxis around and maybe how hot you are !Another tactic is to let the taxi driver take you to your destination, exit the taxi and give him what you think is the correct fare. You must have a pretty good idea of ​​taxi fares to do so with confidence. As an indication, the taxi ride from the Medina Guéliz is between 10 and 15 dirhams dirhams during the day. Add 50% more during the night. Compared to taxi fares taxi European Moroccans are really good value, so there is no need to haggle 5 dirhams.Around noon and afternoon it is more difficult to find a taxi, or because their shift and evolution are not interested in taking new tariffs, either because they are very busy. If you are standing beside the road trying to hail a taxi, they can stop and ask where you are headed - if it is in a direction they do not want to go, they will say they can not do not - especially if they have a passenger in the car to go elsewhere. So if they do not stop, it's not because they are picky and do not like tourists - they usually do, because they pay more! This is because they are moving away or going at different times.Remember that at the end of the day, a taxi driver can take home between 50 and 100 dirhams, as he must pay the licensee and the owner of the taxicab if it has not, and most don 't seem to own their own taxis. In addition, he must pay for gas and repairs.It is not necessary to tip taxi drivers, but if you pay for the device, it's nice to round off the amount.If you take a taxi for a day trip, yet it is not really necessary to pay a gratuity in addition to the rate for the day. It is entirely up to you.
Motorcycles and bicycles

Motorcycles are a popular way to travel to Marrakech, but not for the timid. Bicycles are easy to recruit and are allowed in the Medina.
Horse-drawn carriage

Romantic carriages are a great way to travel to Marrakech. They have space for five people. Transportation must have a sign with the price written on it. If there is no price set, you will have to accept the price before leaving. Expect to pay about $ 80 per hour Dh. Find Marrakech cars pulled by horses at El Badi'a Palace, Koutoubia Mosque, the Jemaa el Fna "and posh hotels in Marrakech.

Marrakech are frequent buses and cheap but not particularly attractive to move in Marrakech because they are often crowded. A number of links of the Medina and the new town.
Walking across Route

You may find yourself standing beside the road who want to get to the other side and I was wondering how you will do and arrive in one piece on the other side. It's a good idea to mark alongside Moroccans - but if you are not comfortable with that because they seem to get in the way of a car, so here is what to do.

Look for a gap in traffic, and begin walking down the street. Continue slowly. Motorcycles, motorcycle moves around you. Therefore, be predictable and rather than continue to step back or suddenly motionless, except, of course, the situation requires it! You will find that the cars slow down and even stop, leaving you space to cross.

Children are eager to offer their services, especially if they realize you're lost. If you are happy for them to show you the way, and then only pay a few dirhams - max 10 dirhams, if they really did a good job
