Hi,

You would have to allow at least four days for a trip to the desert.

In your short visit a couple of nights out of town in the mountains will break it up nicely. You don't need a tour company for this, book directly with the accommodation in the mountains. Some offer transfer or your hotel/Riad in Marrakech will be able to help.

You need four days, preferably five, for a trip from Marrakech to Erg Chebbi or Erg Chigaga. And allow for the fact that daylight hours are 0730 to 1730 in December, so you need to hit the road early to make the best of the limited daylight.

As mountain roads can get closed for snow and the desert can get cold and is a min of 4 days.

I would say do just Marrakech with a two night break to essaouira or two nights out by Ourika if you like skiing.
