  • From Marrakech: Essaouira Full-Day Trip

    1. From Marrakech: Essaouira Full-Day Trip

    Leave Marrakech at 08:00, ready for a 3-hour journey to the beautiful Essaouira on the Atlantic Coast. Once you arrive at the port city, formerly known as Mogador, you will have time to enjoy the charming sights of Essaouira, including its ocher-colored walls, the beautiful Moulay El Hassan square, and the souks, as well as the little streets of the city's old Medina. Enjoy a lunch of fresh fish in a local restaurant. During your trip, visit an association of Berber women producing argan oil, see the local markets, and marvel at the gems in the jeweler's quarter.  You will return to Marrakech at the end of the afternoon, arriving back to the "Red City" at around 19:00.

    The experience was good! Everything was as described, the transportation was clean and the guide was charismatic! However the fact that there was only one guide that had to translate the same thing into 3 different languages (English, Spanish, French as not everyone spoke English) was a bit of a time waster. Essaouira is very nice and definitely worth the visit!

    Do something different during your time in Essaouira and spend an hour exploring the beautiful countryside on horse back.

Benefit from a horse ride that can be adapted to your equestrian skills and ride at a gentle pace if your are a beginner, or gallop on the endless beaches if your are more advanced. First, head towards the river with your faithful companion and discover the ruins of the old palace of the sultan Mohammed III, who revived the fortunes of the city when he invited Jews and the English to trade there. Continue along the sandy beach and get stunning views of the Portuguese castle on Mogador island in the Atlantic Ocean. Return to the ranch through the forest for the end of the services.

    They were great! We brought our 5 year old and they helped her feel comfortable and happy on the horse. We really enjoyed this place and even came back for their fishing trip, which was also great. Both guides were professional and kind. I would highly recommend this company!

  • From Marrakech: Essaouira Full-Day Trip

    10. From Marrakech: Essaouira Full-Day Trip

    Depart Marrakech in the morning and drive to the coastal resort of Essaouira to explore its rich culture and many art galleries. Admire the well-preserved buildings and get stunning views of the Atlantic coast. Experience the warm hospitality of the locals as soon as you arrive, and get an appreciation for their simple lifestyle. Stroll around the busy harbor and see the fishermen selling fresh fish direct from their traditional blue boats. Go to the fortified harbor Scala to take amazing photos of the monumental Bab al Mersa ("Door of the Port"). Then, explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the old seaside Medina. Wander the colorful souks and maze of alleys. Enjoy lunch at a traditional restaurant, and then go to the old Jewish district to see the synagogues. Marvel at the cannons on the city ramparts before heading back to Marrakech at around 4:30 PM.

    Our driver Abdelillah was so lovely! Always smiling and made us feel very welcome. The journey on the way there is broken up nicely with stops at a cafe, viewpoint and Argan oil cooperative. The scenery is beautiful and keeps you entertained for most of the time. We had around 3 hours to explore the medina after eating lunch. Which is so much more relaxed than Marrakech. Would recommend this tour if you want a day trip to the beach. However it was quite a lot cooler than Marrakech....24 degrees and cloudy. So you may want to take a coat and if you’re wanting to swim in the sea it is quite chilly!
