This was a good trip. Essaouira is a calm oasis from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The trip itself was easy to book and we were picked up from our hotel at the agreed time. The driver Youssef was friendly and knowledgeable. The drive took about 3 hours and we made three stops along the way. Firstly a comfort break, secondly to see goats placed in trees for photo opportunities (a bit sad) and lastly a women's argan cooperative. This was interesting but a bit odd, the women clearly work hard, but they are after such a hard sell that it was off putting. We then had four and a half hours in Essaouira which is ample time to explore the Medina, castle walls and marvel at the impressive roaring sea. I highly recommend this trip and our driver.
It was a worthy trip! Our driver was careful. We had s very calm and relaxing road trip with a well-prepared playlist. During the trip Aymane gave us information about culture and history of Morocco. We stopped to see goats “climb” in one tree! I personally didn’t fancy the moment but after Aymane exploration I enjoyed playing with a little baby goat that was On the ground. We also stopped in an argan oil, very interesting. When we arrived in Essaouira, our driver gave us some tips to get lost in the coastal city and enjoy our time. After all, our driver took us back to Marrakech and left us safe at the Riad.
Amazing trip! The pick-up was communicated a day before and the guys picking us up were punctual. Also, the car was really comfortable and modern. Even had good wifi. We had little over 4 hours to spend in Essaouira, we made some stops on the road (as stated in the description: argan goat tree, argan cooperative, Essaouira panoramic view and a stop for coffee at the beginning) and the drivers (Redouane and Mohamed) were really nice, funny, communicative and took really good care of us! Would recommend this trip!
Lovely excursion! We were picked up on time, then had a few stops on the way to Essaouira, first for some coffee/tea and pastries, then we saw the goat tree which was quite fun.Them we made a brief stop at a small argan oil factory and had our final stop at Essaouira where we spent about 5 hours.Too bad it was cold outside,otherwise we would have probably spent our time at the beach. All in all we enjoyed this lovely day and our driver was very attentive with us. We would definitely recommend this company.
The travel company is professional, they reply to your questions very prompt. The driver picked up in time, it as a van for 8 people. As it takes around 3.5 one way, it was a comfortable trip. We stopped in a breakfast place and argan cooperative. Clearly 3.5 hours left for Essaouira which was enough to see the city
