The hustle and bustle of Marrakech quickly slips away as you enter into the peace and beauty that is Essaouira. This ancient citadel on the West Atlantic coast of Africa literally means “wall” in the Berber language, and you’ll soon discover why. Travelers from all over the world come here to experience the very special weather, and explore its diverse and unique history.

The vegetation changes to Argan trees that only grow in the wild and which provide berries for local goats to eat. These special trees are valued for their nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties. The tree, a relict species from the Tertiary age, is extremely well adapted to drought and other environmentally difficult conditions of southwestern Morocco, and while now endangered, they are under protection of UNESCO.

Gaze at the panoramic views of Essaouira as you drive into town. The charming and artistic blue and white town has been a favorite amongst barefoot travelers for decades. In Essaouira, you can explore its peculiar wonders at your leisure. Stroll along the quays, where you can watch fishermen unloading their catch of the day and fishing boats coming back to shore, or enjoy the many restaurants at the port and dine on fresh fish and seafood.

Wander through picturesque streets, explore the historic ramparts and visit the Medina, full of local artists selling their crafts made of Thuya wood. The ramparts will give you an insight in to how this old seaport village was armed against the threat of invasion. Marquetry still remains a traditional specialty of Essaouira. Another beautiful attraction of the region is its tranquil beach, where you could easily spend a relaxing and peaceful time

After a full day of sightseeing, return to your hotel

The tour is just a bus ferry service to Essaouria, but the town is fantastic worth the visit

The tour was ok. Essaouira is not at all as expected or advertised. It was a large group and our driver just left us there. No tour guide or suggestions or anything. I would skip this tour!
