Frankly, this was one of the most amazing tours I've ever had in my life. Said Zaoui was a very personable, fun and knowledgeable guide and shopping together at the local markets, taking a walk through the narrow streets and then having lunch and tea together was just a very unique experience that we're going to remember for a long time. We loved being taken off the beaten paths a little (the Jewish Quarter was really worth visiting) and in general the day felt just like a stroll with a friend. The tour takes longer than three hours (I think it was more than 5 hours in fact) but we weren't bored for one minute. We only had very limited time in Essaouira and taking this tour helped to make our short stay very special.
It was a worthy trip! Our driver was careful. We had s very calm and relaxing road trip with a well-prepared playlist. During the trip Aymane gave us information about culture and history of Morocco. We stopped to see goats “climb” in one tree! I personally didn’t fancy the moment but after Aymane exploration I enjoyed playing with a little baby goat that was On the ground. We also stopped in an argan oil, very interesting. When we arrived in Essaouira, our driver gave us some tips to get lost in the coastal city and enjoy our time. After all, our driver took us back to Marrakech and left us safe at the Riad.
Amazing trip! The pick-up was communicated a day before and the guys picking us up were punctual. Also, the car was really comfortable and modern. Even had good wifi. We had little over 4 hours to spend in Essaouira, we made some stops on the road (as stated in the description: argan goat tree, argan cooperative, Essaouira panoramic view and a stop for coffee at the beginning) and the drivers (Redouane and Mohamed) were really nice, funny, communicative and took really good care of us! Would recommend this trip!
Lovely excursion! We were picked up on time, then had a few stops on the way to Essaouira, first for some coffee/tea and pastries, then we saw the goat tree which was quite fun.Them we made a brief stop at a small argan oil factory and had our final stop at Essaouira where we spent about 5 hours.Too bad it was cold outside,otherwise we would have probably spent our time at the beach. All in all we enjoyed this lovely day and our driver was very attentive with us. We would definitely recommend this company.
We were unsure about a camel ride at all, as we didn’t want to see any animals being mistreated or badly kept. But we were reassured by reviews and decided to go for a one-hour ride. It was an excellent choice and we had a great time. We didn’t see any evidence at all of bad treatment. As it was only an hour trip, the scenery wasn’t very inspiring, but we did get down to the beach. The guide was good at taking photos and we were offered mint tea back at the stables.
