Absolutely worth the visit. Everything we saw was so peculiar and I feel so lucky for having the opportunity to know this places. Senhaji, the guide, was very nice, professional and speaks a lot of languages so it’s very easy to understand everything and feel confortable. A big thank you to him and to Youssef the driver for carrying us to these amazing places.

The excursion was excellent! Practical and functional. Exactly what we needed. The van picked us up at the door of our Riad in Marrakech. There was a stop for coffee on the road. Then we stopped to take photos with the goats in the Argan trees (exactly what my daughter wanted). Essaouira is a beautiful city. It surprised us. The city's medina is calmer and more organized. We ate at the Il mare restaurant, recommended by the Moscim guide. The Moscim guide was friendly and very attentive the whole time! On the way back, they left us at the door of the Riad again! Note 1000! I recommend it to all Brazilian friends :)

Great trip. Our guide Senhaji and driver Youssef were both fantastic. We really only wanted to get to Essaouira but enjoyed the stops along the way nonetheless, even if we didn’t actually arrive there until 1pm. That gave us 4h to visit as much as possible and have lunch - and we could have spent a lot longer! If you like seafood try the stalls at the waterfront - be prepared for the owners to try anything and everything to get you to eat at their stall though. Once you’re anyway near them, that’s it! The medina is much calmer though and browsing in the shops is possible without being approached by the shop owner. The beach is nice and a stroll along the front is recommended - just leave yourself enough time as the 5pm pickup time comes around all too quickly.
