Beautiful fishing village. Highly recommended!!

Beautiful and quiet village to skip from the intense activity of Marrakesh Medina. Good-quality and cheap fresh fish for lunch. Highly recommended for a full day trip. Guide tour was extremely interesting and funny with Zaid, the best local guide ever!

Essaouira is beautiful...
Jasmine_S

Essaouira is beautiful city! We stopped by the argan oil cooperative and the goat tree which is a sight to see. Upon arriving to Essaouira, the driver introduced us to our guide who apparently tpured us around Essapuira till 1400. None of us haven't had lunch by that time which was unfortunate and the tour guide just kept on making us walk and show various sites. Afterwards, they gave is till 1600 to roam around the city which is quite a short time for our group. It would have been better if it was extended till 1700 and then we would arrive back to marrakech just in time before the set curfew.

Great trip! Although one day is definitely not enough in this beautiful seaside resort-city the trip still won’t disappoint. The driver stopped on the side of the road to show us the goats on the argan tree from where the oil is produced following a visit to an all women cooperative where we learned how the most famous Moroccan Export is made before arriving at ESSAURIA. Once there the knowledgeable guide gave us an excellent tour of the port and the medina. (Walled City, in Arabic) giving us little extra time left to go shopping! The city is a Jewel , vendors much less aggressive and merchandise cheaper then Marrakech, this is the place for you to buy your souvenirs and everything else you want to Take home. Well worth your time and money. My friend and I sacrificed our lunch for shopping, lol. This is not a day trip, the city is definitely well worth staying at least one night. Enjoy

Just ok

It was an ok day out. Picked up on time and the vehicle was lovely. First stop was the goats in the tree, second was an argan coop, then Essasouira. The driver was just that, a driver, not a local guide. He didn't give us any information, in fact he barely spoke except to give us times. It also says a short guided tour of Essasouira but we were dropped at the carpark near the Medina and told to be back in 4hrs.

Nice trip to Essaouira where the weather was windier and cooler than in Marrakech. On the way there we stopped twice to see goats in a tree and visit a local cooperation of argan oil. Free time in Essaouira (4h30), we wandered in the street, enjoyed the shops, battlements where the famous scene from GOT was shot when Khaleesi acquires her army of unsullied. Ate great fish at the Restaurant Des Rêves (recommend the deep fried mix OMG). Dipped our feet in the Ocean for half an hour. A 3 hour drive from Marrakech but worth it.

Independent tour to a cool city
Kayla
, Aug 2021
This was the exact trip we wanted. It was mostly independent with three or 4 stops. The first and last stops being at the equivalent of large convenient stores with bathrooms. The 2nd stop was at the trees with goats in them. The 3rd stop was at an argon oil cooperative where they show you how they produce the argon oil and turn it into various products for sale. Then you get dropped off in essaouira and you get 4ish hours to wander around and explore. I really enjoyed this tour and felt it was properly advertised as a driver to get you from A to B then back. Not much more. I feel like it was worth it. The bus was air conditioned well and the driver was attentive to requests and questions, but he was not overbearing or overly talkative. Would I take this your again or reccomend it to my friends and family who are independent and dont mind choosing their own adventure: Yes

I broke my ankle in Morocco so my mobility was limited but this trip allowed me to see some things and the driver was very accommodating.
