I'd drop Ourika and chill your last two days.

How far are the Atlas Mountains & Essouria from Marrakech?

Yeah... especially since you'll be arriving Monday afternoon...it almost makes more sense to spend Tuesday in Marrakech...as well.

You'll just be "getting your feet on the ground" and why mess up that "natural holiday mojo" by leaving the very next day.

Waking up fresh and alert on Wednesday...you'd have a full day to embark on your Essaouira adventure... especially since you'd be able "catch your breath" by avoiding travel those first few days.

Thursday and Friday...you could spend "filling in the gaps" back in Marrakech.

Additionally...you could also take one of those "Ourika Valley day tours" (which is relatively close)...and still end up "at your home base".

And...if you're feeling "frisky"...you could do one of those "all day" Ouarzazate/ High Atlas/ Kasbah Air Benhaddou tours.

Albeit...it'll definitely be a long day...but I did this exact tour on my first visit...and I can honestly say that it was a great way to finish up my holiday.

Basically...you'll just sit back... enjoy the scenery...wander about some amazingly atmospheric Kasbahs...and even stop for lunch.

While...someone else does the driving.

Oh...and to answer my friend Mr. SpotBoy... Essaouira is about three hours away on the Atlantic coast.

Supratours bus is an excellent hassle free...relaxing...and inexpensive travel option with which to get there.

The Atlas Mountains is a broadly descriptive term detailing this ruggedly beautiful mountain range separating Marrakech from the "Sahara Desert region" located in the southeast.

There's certainly many "day tour" options to visit this beautiful territory.

You"d be able to see and experience some stark "geographical and cultural" contrasts by visiting this region.

Essentially... it's just so fundamentally different... like you're seeing a completely different side of Morocco.
