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.
