The experience was good! Everything was as described, the transportation was clean and the guide was charismatic! However the fact that there was only one guide that had to translate the same thing into 3 different languages (English, Spanish, French as not everyone spoke English) was a bit of a time waster. Essaouira is very nice and definitely worth the visit!

A good way to get to the coast - excellent driver and pick up went well. Essaouira is very attractive - lovely sandy beach and lots of surfing activities. Many shops - bit cheaper than Marrakech. Fun to wander around away from the shopping streets. Terrible cafe stop on the way - expensive, disorganised and horrid food and coffee!

Essouira is a fantastic getaway from Marrakech. It has history, architecture, beauty, a great souk, and fresh seafood. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and had a great sense if humor. The guided tour gives a good overview of the Medina area, and there is plenty of time to explore the city and have time for lunch as well. Well worth the trip!
