lovely tour,the hotel pick up was punctual,nice air conditioned bus. The journey was good our guide Abdul spoke excellent English and French and gave a lot of helpful information about our journey and the surrounding areas. We had a break about an hour and a half into the journey much appreciated.Then on to the Argan oil Co-Operative.. after seeing the goats in the trees eating the nuts!The Co-Operative visit was for me very interesting and educational,i enjoyed seeing the women work and learning about the process involved. In the shop the prices were not too expensive and i thought the quality of the products was excellent. I bought a face cream with Rose oil in it and it is divine!! Once we reached Essaouira there was a pleasant sea breeze we changed guides for a local guide who showed us around the port,the Jewish quarter and the market. We then had a break until it was time to head back. We found a lovely place to eat that had three courses for 55DH it was great soup or salad ,fish,chicken, or meat with rice and a great home made natural yoghurt. Very good value. After Marrakesh it was pleasant to stroll around the cool streets and not get hassled i would love to do this visit again!!

It was great! The tour guide was so informative and just amazing. We stopped at hand made argan oil manufacturers on the way. When we got there he guided us through the town and then we had a bit of time to ourselves. I would definitely recommend!

A well organised visit with stops on the way and on the way back to break up quite a long journey. The organisation to collect you from your hotel or riad was punctual and superbly organised. The guide was very informative. A bit of spare time to wonder around the souk and do that extra bit of site-seeing or shopping. Essaouira is a lovely fishing port facing the Atlantic with the bracing winds coming off the Atlantic on one side and beautiful sandy beaches on the other. A small souk in the middle of the town selling lots of Moroccan wares as well as the necessities for living. Altogether a good day's visit well worth the journey.

Loved this trip to the coast and the stop at the Moroccan Oil cooperative. The meal in the restaurant recommended by our guide was very tasty. The guide was fantastic - friendly and happy to share his knowledge. He really seemed to enjoy his job and sharing his country with us. Loved the walks through the tiny alleyways.
