If not daunted by Moroccan roads, hire a car and drive yourself. it will cost 40O dh for the car and 200 dh for the gas. You can also hire adriver for the same price. If you go on an organised tour you'll have to stick to the group rules ( places to stop, restaurants where to eat) November may be rainy but again it has been exceptionally hot these last days

Most riads have drivers who work for them and use them for day trips and longer tours. there are alos lots of travela gencies in Marrakech. The most important thing ask for itineray, makes sure what's included and not and most importantly how much it costs. some offer three vallyes tour stating at 450 dh per person . It included lunch , trekking. It starts at 930 an dfinihses at 6 pm. down side you go with lots of peopleif not interested in this long day tripa nd want to focus just on OUrika or Imlil, price should be 60 euros for two; pay for your own lunch and expectt another 100 for a guide to do soem trekking

I can't give names of drivers or travel agencies because it will be violating Ta posting guidelines
