Exploring Morocco.

We like that we explored on our own. We found a hidden resto and despite the pandemic we were able to have wine.

Essaouira was the highlight
, Mar 2020
Don’t expect much in the form of an informative tour from the shuttle bus. The drink/toilet stop is cash only. The coop stop is interesting but you can get argon oil cheaper elsewhere The tour guide in Essaouira was really funny and knowledgeable
Great tour
, Mar 2020
We had a lovely trip to Essaouira. Our driver stopped for us for tea/coffee- toilet break on the way to the town and back plus for a photo with all the goats on the top of the tree. In the town, local guide took over and we explored the city and its history. Guide was included in the trip but it wasn’t mandatory so you could leave the tour any time you wanted. At the end of the tour our guide took us on our request to a lovely terrace restaurant so we could have lunch and after we still had some free time. The trip was excellent.

Worthwhile if a bit long
, Mar 2020
A lot quieter and nicer Medina than Marrakech Medina.Yashim the driver very helpful. Tour of harbour and medina useful.Check weather in Essaouira as it can be windy and a lot cooler than Marrakech.Overall decent experience even taking into account long journey times.
Goat in the tree

Beautiful little town
, Mar 2020
I really liked this little town a lot. It’s wayyyy more peaceful and relaxing than Marrakesch. I wish I wouldn’t have find out about it on my last day because I would have liked to stay there longer.
Amazing goats in trees
, Feb 2020
Amazing value for this trip! (We paid around £24 each) Seeing and getting photos with the goats in trees was amazing, there was about 10 of us on a mini bus in total, always interesting meeting others. Essouiro itself was nice walking around, 4 hours to ourself to eat, drink and relax. A round trip of 5 hours travelling, but a fantastic day out for the money. Well recommended break from Marrakech if you want to see the goats in the trees! (Expect to tip!)
Making of a movie at Essasouira
, Feb 2020
This was a very long trip but unforgettable for sure. It started with pickup at 8am from hotel. 1st stop was for coffee and croissant, nice tasty start. Next stop was argon oil store and all women were nice and understood information, bought a few stuff and went to main destination. Essasouira is breathtaking. We were given about one hour tour with excellent expkanation and took pictures that will last forever from the town. We went inside the city of beach and nice food, lots of stuff to buy for ourselves and gifts. People were nice throughout the town, the alleyways were from a movie. Highly recommend this trip for the price. As long as you do not expect VIP transportation, ride was long but good.
Fabulous day

Well organised and stops were just the right length. There was no expectation to keep tipping and the guide that took us around the town was extremely well informed and personable
