7 days in Marrakech at Easter

We are two women who are planning to go to Marrakech for a week at Easter. We would like to go to Essaouira for a day and the Atlas Mountains for a two-day excursion. Should we try to book these excursions ahead of time or do you think we would have no problem doing it once we are there? We are thinking "excursion" because of the limited time we have, so we don't want to spend time waiting for buses, etc, but would it be relatively easy to do this on our own? Thanks for any advice you can give us.

Hi,

Easter can be very busy here. Your hotel or Riad will be able to help organise excursions for you when you arrive or there are many agencies in the new town and the medina.

Supratours buses run several times a day to Essaouira

Hi ReneeBCN;

Welcome to Morocco Travel forum;

As shimmin has illustrated above that during Easter will be a high season in Morocco, as you know in Marrakech you can do some day Tours which you can arrange online if you find a good rates, as you can hire a Car and do it your own much better, for Essaouira you can either do it by the bus of Supratours which departs every 2 hours from Marrakech to Essaouira, for a Day Trip to the High Atlas Mountains, you can hire a driver can be recommended by your riad or check the search box for some information about a reliable driver for your trips, or Check the Travel Agencies around Jemaa el Fna streets it has loads of Companies offices you can check by yourself and compare rates, joining some group to make it less expensive.

Happy Travels.
