Full description
Visit the ancient Moroccan city of Essaouira, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and former Portuguese colonial town which bears the traces of its long and varied history. Your trip will start with an early pickup from your hotel and a drive from Agadir to Essaouira. On the way to Essaouira, make a few stops to see the flying goats (tree goats that can be seen hopping from branch to branch of the argan trees native to the region), rest in a Berber village and have a hot cup of mint tea or coffee, and visit an argan oil factory, a sought-after luxury product. Once you arrive in Essaouira, follow your local guide to the traditional souk market where a variety of wares, crafts, and foods are sold, offering a tantalizing array of sights and smells. After your Moroccan market experience, tour the famous Skala de la Kasbah ramparts, a relic of European engineering from the city's colonial days. From there, proceed to the bustling port of Essaouira before enjoying free time for lunch, shopping, and further exploration. Wander the Medina (fortified city) and admire a colorful landscape populated by mosques, terraces, cafes, and markets as well as historic architecture that reflects the city's unique history. After exploring the city and its beautiful sunny beaches, catch your ride back to Agadir.

Very good guide, explained everything in three languages, German, English, French. Arrived in Essaouira everyone could choose from if they want to take part in the city tour and food or start on their own. The city tour was detailed and interesting, after the tour he showed us a restaurant where you can eat well, but you don't have to. We ate there it was really good. After dinner we are off on our own. Has responded to the wishes of the participants

Well organized tour, friendly guide

We were picked up at the hotel on time at 7:30 and had a comfortable trip (approx. 3 hours) with a photo stop and a break. Then our multilingual guide (lasagna) took us on a tour of the medina. After lunch we had about 1.5 hours to explore the medina on our own before we went back to the hotel. It was a beautiful day.
