Hinnad muutuvad kiiresti.
Kui võtta juurde kohapeal 1-2 lisaööd, siis osalustasu vastavalt muutub
Jääb veel vajadus sõita Casablancast 230 km kaugusele Marrakeshi - ja tagasi. Küllap ka selle saab korraldajate kaudu mõistlikult lahendatud.
Marrakeshi enda lennujaama lendamine on üle 200 euro kallim.

Maroko on islamiriik. Tuleb austada kohalikke traditsioone ja tavasid ning jälgida, et oma käitumisega ei solvataks kohalike elanike usulisi tõekspidamisi, eriti ramadani ajal. Kandke tagasihoidliku rõivastust.

It is a great pleasure for us to invite you to the magical city of Marrakech in Morocco, to the International Meeting of Folklore Ensembles “Marrakech Folklore Days”, the biggest folk dance event in northern Africa.

The festival is open for amateur folklore ensembles of all types (singing groups, dancing groups with live or recorded music) as well as for marching groups (such as majorettes, historic soldiers, marching bands, flag wavers, carnival groups, historic groups, piper groups, historic costume groups, wind and brass orchestras etc.) - without age limit or size.
