Discover Ancient Essaouira: Full-Day Trip from Agadir

1. Discover Ancient Essaouira: Full-Day Trip from Agadir

Your day-long adventure begins as you head north from Agadir to the former Portuguese city of Essaouira, passing isolated beaches, the palace of a Saudi prince, and the village of Taghazout along the way. Once known by its Portuguese name of Mogador, the city of Essaouira is a citadel with a prestigious past, occupied by various civilizations since prehistoric times. And famous for its Tyrian factory that once supplied Rome with its legendary purple dye, Essaouira is a cradle for artists of all types. Upon your arrival in the city, embark on a tour of the port and watch as the fishing boats return home. The Bab El Marse port not only has its Sqala canons on display, but it offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Medina. Travel to the Media itself—a UNESCO World Heritage site—and go inside to meet celebrated marquetry inlayers and cabinetmakers. Stop in at the Women's Cooperative manufacturer of argan oil, and then enjoy some free time exploring the alleyways of the Medin, strolling along the endless beach, or testing out some fresh fish at a local beachfront restaurant.

We were picked up from our hotel at the agreed time by a polite driver and then transferred over to comfortable air conditioned minibus and left promptly. Once we were on the move our tour guide (Akram) introduced himself and explained the itinerary for the day. We arrived in Marrakech and started off with a 20 minute external tour of the Koutoubia Mosque. After this we were taken to a restaurant for lunch but were also given the option to eat wherever we liked (Food is not included as stated in the overview) It was then time to move onto the Souks through the twisting turning back streets of the medina and what an experience it was, not to be missed! Whilst in the Souks we were taken to a Pharmacy where a talk was delivered to the group about all the natural products of Morocco with the opportunity to buy only if you wished. We finished the tour with 2 hours free time in and around Jemaa el-Fnaa Square before returning to Agadir. Akram was an amazing tour guide, he was extremely know

Very good guide, explained everything in three languages, German, English, French. Arrived in Essaouira everyone could choose from if they want to take part in the city tour and food or start on their own. The city tour was detailed and interesting, after the tour he showed us a restaurant where you can eat well, but you don't have to. We ate there it was really good. After dinner we are off on our own. Has responded to the wishes of the participants

I don’t think there’s a better way to start of your visit of Marrakesch then with this Tour! Our Guide was perfectly on time and showed us all the alleys of Marrakesch, a Trip to the Bahia Palace, then to the Saardinien Tombs. He had so much historical information to share there’s no way to not be fascinated. Definitely a must and for us again!

Highly recommended trip , everything was as advertised , very nice and informative tour guide , very comfortable mini bus , Discover Ancient Essaouira Full Day Trip from Agadir was as expected .

The collection and the transport worked perfectly. The group was manageable. The guide was very accommodating.
