Full description
Leave Marrakech to embark on a private journey to beautiful Essaouira and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of its port and stroll around its medina. As soon as you set foot in this charming city you'll feel the ocean breeze. Enjoy the calm and artistic spirit of this place and start exploring together with your guide.

Admire the ancient city halls of the medina, wander around the colorful and buzzing souks and take a look at the local artisans. Take in the sound of Gnawa music from the vibrant cafés of Moulay El Hassan square and move on to your next stop. Enjoy the walk and soak in hundreds of years of culture and history. Admire the ocher walls and get a glimpse of the local lifestyle. 

Stroll along the harbor side and view the Skala fortress with its wave-lashed ramparts and cannons. See the colorful and lively spectacle of the return of the boats to the port, with their baskets full of fish. Before making your way back to Marrakech you can visit the local gallery Othello or enjoy the sandy and peaceful beaches.
