Full description

Discover the Atlantic city of Essaouira on a full-day guided tour from Marrakech. Following pickup from your accommodation in Marrakech and along the way, stop to take pictures of goats climbing argan trees and visit an argan oil cooperative to learn how this healthy oil is produced. Upon arrival at Essaouira, follow your guide and explore Essaouira’s most important monuments, such as the old fish market and seaport, the old medina where the labyrinth of streets is lined with heavy wooden doors and whitewashed houses. See the 16th-century ramparts of Essaouria from where you'll be able to see astonishing views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Very friendly driver with very good driving, who was able to put us at ease and take care of us. Once there, the guide was extremely kind, he speaks several languages and gave us an excellent tour of the city. A bottle of water was provided to us free of charge during the walk, restaurants with more European hygiene rules too! In the top ! The little minus: the time to walk around independently is a little reduced. The visit to the argan cooperative should be optional because we had already done it during a previous activity.

Very good except that the day was shortened by several hours. We were sold a camel ride (very short after all) at sunset, except that we left at 5 p.m. and not at 8 p.m. 9 p.m. to have the sunset. So when you arrive around 12:30 pm, with the ballad at 4 pm, it's a short walk around Essaouiera. Everyone and pat very nice but it's still false advertising

I was very delighted with my day trip to Essaouira today. Our guide on site was perfect with lots of historical anecdotes and a complete tour of this very beautiful Moroccan city and all its charms. Likewise, I wanted to emphasize the very pleasant welcome and the very appreciable sympathy of our driver Adnane who was a very kind and dedicated guide all day. Everything was perfect. Thank you very much to you and to the dedicated team for this very beautiful day.
