What to Expect
Explore the breathtaking charms of Essaouira. This amazing tour start in the morning from Marrakech, where you will be personally transported through the vast and breathtaking Moroccan landscape to the city of Essaouira. On this journey, you may see a few scattered villages and some camels, sheep and goats grazing in the countryside. You will see the vegetation changing to Argan trees that only grow in the wild and which provide berries for the local goats to eat. If you wish, it will be possible to stop for an Argan oil tasting in a small cooperative run by local women, where the Argan oil is extracted from the trees. This multipurpose oil is famous for its uses both in cooking and cosmetics.
Nearby, gaze at panoramic views of Essaouira, a charming and artistic blue and white town. Once you arrive to Essaouira, explore its peculiar wonders at your leisure. Stroll along the quays, where you can watch fishermen unloading their catch of the day and fishing boats coming back to shore, or enjoy the many good restaurants at the port and dine on fresh fish and seafood.
Essaouira is a picturesque town, where you can explore the historic ramparts and visit the medina full of local artists selling their crafts made of Thuya wood. The ramparts will give you an insight into how this old seaport village was armed against the threat of invasion. Parquetry still remains a traditional specialty of Essaouira, and another beautiful attraction of the region is its tranquil beach, where you could easily spend a relaxing and peaceful afternoon.
