  • 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!

    The driver came to pick us up from our location then took us to Majorelle Garden. Inside was a nice relaxing experience. It was great to see the amazing architecture of the building along with the radiance of the colours. We then went to get some food & drink in Cafe Majorelle - which is located in the building. This whole experience was about an hour plus. After, the same driver was outside waiting for us and took us to the meeting point for the camel ride. We were given time to prepare ourselves and were able to leave our bags/belongings safely in the car. We rode the camels for about 30 minutes to a local Berber.

  • Marrakech: 3-Hour Colorful Souks Tour

    5. Marrakech: 3-Hour Colorful Souks Tour

    Explore Marrakech's colorful open-markets on a 3-hour private tour. Witness the commercial life of the city as you meander through the labyrinthian souks with a passionate guide. The souks of Marrakech are certainly the most colorful and the liveliest in Africa. Meet new friends and gain a better understanding of Moroccan culture through different visits and discussions with artisans and shopkeepers. This market is among Morocco's most famous and the stalls display colorful and richly-varied wares. Shop for hand-crafted slippers, traditional woodwork, brass, iron, and bronze handicrafts, jewelry, kaftans, carpets, spices, and pottery.

    This was a wonderful tour. I saw things I would have never been able to see on my own and even got to weave a bit of a carpet at a local carpet-maker shop. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I recommend doing this tour as soon as you get to Marrakech so you can have a better feel for the souks when you go out on your own later. There was plenty of time for photos and shopping along the way. I never felt hurried at all. I was travelling solo and the whole group was only 4 people, so ended up making new friends as well.

    Our tour guide from H&L looked after us really well from start to finish. He was on time friendly & really informative. We had a lovely morning running in to early afternoon & even threw in an extra detour via the Palmerie to show us some baby camels &whistle stop fir done refreshing mint tea. He is a Berber and suggested some other interesting overnight excursions left us his card for when we return again. Would definitely use him and his company again &would not hesitate to recommend him &this tour. The only thing I would suggest is less time at Menard 30 minutes as there is only really a lake there, but really peaceful, and the extra 40 minutes at La Majorelle gardens as we would have liked a little longer there. The gardens at La Majorelle were amazing.

The majorelle gardens are truly beautiful and worth a visit, this combined with the camel ride was a great way to get both done at the same time without having to arrange a whole day and without the hassle of trying to book a taxi. Lots of photo opportunities while on the camel make this a great tour and the cost was a lot cheaper than I had seen elsewhere and which also included the entrance fee to the gardens and Berber museum (which wasn’t so interesting for me at least but is part of the gardens) highly recommend. Camels seemed happy and well fed and looked after which was important

Hicham driver super nice comfortable transport 4 hours of time in Essaouira who gives time to hang around here and there. Fresh fish grilled on the barbecue to the left of the large square before the medina, you choose your fish (sole, sea bream, sardines, shrimps and you negotiate the prices.

Superb experience! Thanks to our guide Abdel-J. who was extraordinary for his knowledge and professionalism. The places chosen by our guide were very pretty. In addition, the visit being private, we were able to take the opportunity to really discuss. I highly recommend!
