Highlights
  • Explore the historic city of Essaouira in a day trip from Marrakech
  • Enjoy a short walking tour of the area before exploring independently
  • Travel in the comfort of a climate-controlled minivan
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off from centrally located hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Marrakech, or at a central location, for the trip to Essaouira, a laid-back city that’s cooled by sea breezes. On your way to Essaouira, make a stop at an Argan oil cooperative, learning how the golden oil is produced using traditional techniques. Upon arrival in Essaouira, set out on a short guided walking tour to get your bearings in the UNESCO-listed historic center, which is ringed by fortifications with great views of the ocean. Then enjoy free time to see and do what you want. You can sip mint tea in the Moulay el Hassan square, browse for souvenirs at the bazaars, or try freshly caught, local seafood at an open-air restaurant. Rejoin the driver and group after an afternoon of exploration and begin the return trip to Marrakech, where the day concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

We made a last minute booking just a few days before the excursion. The pickup was from our hotel. We were told to be ready at 8 am but our driver didn't get there till about 35 minutes later as there were several pickups ahead of us. This was fine, as less time on the mini-bus.
