Full description
One this one day trip, immerse yourself in the unique history, traditions and cityscapes of Essaouira. The tour starts with pick-up at approximately 7:30 AM from your hotel and takes you on a comfortable ride through the Atlas Mountains, with a few stops along the way: first, stop to see some "flying goats" climbing the Argan trees looking for fresh nuts. Then, you'll stop to relax and have a coffee break in a Berber village. The third stop will be a short visit to an argan oil factory.

This trip's destination is ultimately the medina (old, walled city) of Essaouira, a city offering views of charming colorful landscapes in Moroccan and Portuguese style. See the Grand Mosque, terraces, cafés, and the souk (the market). This old Portuguese city was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Morocco in 2001! Once you arrive in Essaouira, you'll have free time to visit the souk located inside the medina. Then, take a tour of the ramparts of the Scala of the Kasbah (an ancient fortification), the port of Essaouira, the municipal market, and the neighbourhood jewelers and craft complex. Stores along the streets will be selling a massive variety of beautiful handcrafted items, such as Thuya wood products, clothes, carpets, and more.

After your free time enjoying the city and its beautiful sunny beaches, it's time to hit the road again for your trip back to Agadir, again with a few stops along the way to rest and watch the sunset on a wild beach.
