Hi, I am planning on doing Jbel Toubkal and visiting Todra Gorge as well. Does any of you out there know the fastest way from Jbel Toubkal (or places near by) to Todra with public transport? Do I have to go back to Marrakech or is there a faster way?
Any info will be greatly appreciated,
Cheers,
Ivos

In reply to Ivos: We hired a 4*4 and drove a cross country route which is mentioned in a couple of the guidebooks. It worked out pretty reasonable for 5 days (about 50 quid each between 4 of us) and gave us a lot more freedom. Organise it in marrackech, we also arranged drop off at the airport. Haggle over price as we got it down from the equivalent of about 500 quid.

In reply to Ivos: big discussions with the grand taxi people will get you there the quickest for public (ish) transport otherwise collect the bus from Marrakesh to Tinghir (about 80dhs) and then taxi to the gorge (10dhs) but will take from 6 to 11 hours on the bus reliability dependant.

Sounds great but there is only 2 of us, seven days (including Jbel Toubkal) and a low budget :-(
BTW, which guidebooks do you have in mind?

Cheers,
Ivo

Are there any grand taxis capable of making the journey in Imlil or Asni or do we have to get to Marakech first?

In reply to Ivos: I don't know to be honest - but probably you'd have to get to Marrakesh first (would have thought it was easier to get to Tinghir from there with only two of you).

Note that it takes a long time to get to Todra. It was a good 7 hours for us, and that was in a hire car.
