Rissani Off The Beaten Path: 9 reviews and 38 photos
If you want to have a guide to show you the sights and culture of the Rissani area - which was once the very important ancient sahara trading city of Sijillimassa and on the caravan routes down into the sub Sahara areas of Mauritania and Mali - then I would recommend a guide to take you around - this includes a highly recommended visit to one of the 3 weekly soukdays where the regular covered souk doubles or triples with people from all over the sahara and outlying villages coming to buy and sell fresh produce, livestock and all sorts of wares.
or take you into the desert by 4x4 to see the beauty of the dunes and the stoney desert ie the hamada - where there are oases, see nomad families living out in the desert, the old mine and the 'black people village' of Khamlia famed for its Gnawa music association. There are many fossils and dinosaur prints to be discovered if exploring the area around Taouz which is at the very end of the tar seal road from Rissani that runs to Merzouga on down to Taouz.
or the 4x4 desert and hamada drive from Merzouga down to Zagora even! this can even be done by multi day camel trek! all up to your sense of adventure and your wallet.
Or arrange a night out to stay in the desert - whether it is standard/budget level or luxury level bivouac camp - or to find a hotel to stay at situated close to the dunes.
Or guide you further afield to see other parts of Morocco.
Just be aware that he will try to see what else he can get - not only payment for his guiding services!
