This was an invaluable book for our recent trip to Marrakesh. We took the advice of many of the places to eat and were not disappointed. It is well laid out and well worth a look both before and during your trip. You will need to get yourself a better local map of the City but these are easily sought at most hotels or stores.

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 23 Aug. 2015
Format: Paperback
This 144-page book - the 2nd (print) edition of February 2014 - is an interesting and readable guide to this famous Moroccan city. This is a well-designed and presented guide, with useful maps. Being a pocket guide - approximately 7½ inches by 4 inches - it has a much more concentrated layout than the full-size Rough Guides, and is closer to a standard guide in layout, though still manages to keep much of its character.

The Contents are
P004: Introduction
P012: Best of Marrakesh (things to see and do, places to shop and dine, etc.)

P032: Places (4 sections describing the city’s districts, plus one each on excursions to the Atlas Mountains and the neighbouring resort of Essaouira - each with a thorough description, and its own accompanying mini-guide)

P102: Accommodation
P118: Essentials (getting there, getting around, A-Z Directory, events, phrase book, etc.)
P136: Index

Very useful summary of what to see and do in Marrakech, and good for guidance on what to pay e.g. for group taxis trips, private taxi trips out of Marrakech.

This is a short, sharp guide to Marrakech, including excursions to some nearby places. Whilst the prices need updating (a perpetual problem with printed guides, but I bought the Kindle version!), it proved to be reliable if pointing out the obvious (given its brevity). The occasional nugget is there: I tried a couple of the restaurants, and they were quite as it describes, though Marrakesh is not exactly for foodies...The section on Essouara convinced my other half to prefer a trip to there rather than Agadir, and we were enchanted by this little town (I should probably say 'blown away' given the wind there. Still, I wish there were more on what Marrakesh does best: stuff like carpets, fabric, leather goods and so on.

This is a very good guide which gives you a lot of information about the history and culture of Marrakesh, there is also a fold out map. Read this pocket guide and use it with Trip Advisor to find places to go.

Starting with a caveat: like most guidebooks, a Kindle isn't the best place to read this one, which I knew in advance. But the Kindle apps for Mac and PC (rather than the grey slate itself) make it much easier to work with, and that's what I used to plan my trip in advance.

The maps are good (once screengrabbed and printed!) and the walkthroughs of the city when you only have a day or two were ideal for my weekend trip. Like other rough guides, the structure of the book - first giving the highlights and a game plan, then expanding into areas and attractions - work very well. For me, it's either a Rough Guide or a Lonely Planet from now on.

Would have liked more historical information and about life styles etc. Lots of info about where to eat etc and where to stay; we are going on a tour package so don't need to worry about those things. Will be more selective next time when choosing a travel guide, chose this kindle version because of price and fact will not visit this place again.

we needed something concise and clear for our visit to marrakech, what we got was way too narrow and the height of A5. full of oversized coloured photographs, minimal information, got 2 maps which will be useful, no price range either on restaurants and bars, on the whole disappointing.
