What's the best way for a couple of European tourists to get from Marrakesh airport (RAK) to a hotel near the Jemaa el-Fna without undue hassle or expense?
The airport website says the taxi fare should be MAD 70.00 but it is usual to bargain with the driver. It also says to avoid the taxis near the terminal, that belong to an "organized gang", and instead to walk across a car park first. This advice seems good as far as it goes but is slightly alarming as there might be more than one such gang.
Does anyone with local knowledge have any further advice about how to best locate an honest taxi driver rather than one intent on ripping us off, or a tout expecting a large tip for the "service" of finding us a taxi?
I am aware (again from the airport website) that there is a bus, but that is not ideal as the bus stop is 800 metres from the airport terminal building.
