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!

In total, we were brought to Essaouria in a group of 12 people. The stops were as stated and were kept short in duration, but no pressure was exerted to have to continue quickly. The pick-up went smoothly in both Marrakech and Essaouria, the agreed place and time were kept. In Essaouria we could move freely. We really liked the drivers, who directly informed about possible costs, e.g. small tip on the goat tree, avoiding photos with the camels during the stopover and above all that and possibly guides want to lead through Essaouria and speak directly after we have stopped. As a result, we came back and forth relaxed and could spend a nice day in Essaouria and enjoy the city with the people and the sun on the sandy beach. The only point of criticism was that the return transport took over an hour longer than stated.
