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.

It's a good trip to go on. The drive is long but if your interested in game of thrones it's cool to see where it was filmed. The goats are cool but the farmers beg you to pay to take pictures. The women in the Aragon oil factory were lovely. The beach is lovely too (bit dirty

The day trip was great. The driver (Laarbi) who took us to Essaouira was very helpful and explained from the start of the trip what we was going to do. Also the tour guide was really good in sharing with the group the history of Essauira.
