Your day-long adventure begins as you head north from Agadir to the former Portuguese city of Essaouira, passing isolated beaches, the palace of a Saudi prince, and the village of Taghazout along the way.

Very good guide, explained everything in three languages, German, English, French. Arrived in Essaouira everyone could choose from if they want to take part in the city tour and food or start on their own. The city tour was detailed and interesting, after the tour he showed us a restaurant where you can eat well, but you don't have to. We ate there it was really good. After dinner we are off on our own. Has responded to the wishes of the participants
