Calèche Travel

Calèches are green, canopied, horse-drawn carriages that hold four to five people. Even if they do scream "tourist," they're a great way to reach your evening meal, and children love riding up front beside the driver. They're also picture-perfect for trips out to enjoy the Majorelle, Menara, and Agdal gardens. You should always agree on a price beforehand, but keep in mind that rides generally cost a minimum of 150 DH per hour; trips to the Palmery might cost 500 DH, and round-trip excursions (circling the ramparts, say) might cost 300 DH. There are two main pickup stops: one is in the medina, along the left side of the street stretching from the Djemâa el Fna to the Koutoubia Mosque; the other is in Guéliz, just south of the place de la Liberté and west of Bab Nkob. You can also try flagging one down.
