Super punctual pickup at 8am from the hotel by a very nice driver who answered all questions in a very charming way in the 3 hours driving time. The route to Essaouira is unspectacular, leads past 2 villages and there is a stop at a rest area (smoke & pee pause), 2nd stop argan oil cooperative, interesting but without obligation to buy. Upon arrival in Essaouira, a German-speaking guide led us briefly and crisply through the beautiful village. We did not like 2 stops in a wood workshop and a silversmith, we were offered goods at a discount. We immediately waved it off and was respected without hesitation. We spent the rest of the time individually eating fish in the harbor and in the medina. The return trip at 4pm was too early for us, we would have loved to spend more time in this sweet city. (Return in the dark would also have been less than ideal)
The trip with our guide Ibrahim and driver Mohammed was entertaining, Ibrahim spoke great German and showed us everything we wanted to see, the Toyota SUV was really comfortable. If you want to be looked after flexibly and personally during the excursion and are keen to learn a local's insider knowledge and to be in direct contact, this tour is perfect for you. In the future we will only book tours in the appropriate constellation. It doesn't get any better. Special praise goes to Ibrahim. He did his job perfectly, we still talk about him every day Essaouira per se was not that good for us, but that's very subjective. It was too cold, too windy and raining for us ... not good conditions for us sun-hungry North Germans
To understand a country, such a tour is of course only recommended. The German speaking guide gave us a very clear understanding of the culture. If you just want to see the beautiful world, the cheap tours with the big bus are definitely recommended. If you're looking for something special, you've come to the right place ...
Awesome tour guide and driver. It is worth spending a little more and booking a private tour with a guide. Tour guide showed us everything, answered every question, responded to our requests, stops according to our requests.
It was a great day! And everything went smoothly! Our driver Hassan, was exemplary and has brought us country and people close. Likewise, his tips were terrific. We would do this tour again at any time!
