We have 6 nts in Marrakech from 20 June, but only have 2 full days left for day tours.We have decided to visit Essaouria. We would like to have a decent amount of time there to explore and have lunch. Is there anything worthwhile to visit on the way, which will still give us a decent amount of time there? We are going by car with our Riad's driver. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
ALSO, we are considering a trip to Ourgaine also with Riad's transport. What else could we do that day including lunch and maybe visit a Berber village?We were debating whether to visit Ourika Valley instead.
Regarding gifts/donations for villages have read that clothing/pencils/crayons for children are better than money. Comments please - any other suggestions?
We are interested in photography/scenery/architecture/local culture. We are not interested in long walks/hiking or climbing to see the waterfalls. Would appreciate any feedback although I know preferences are purely personal.
Thank in advance.
