Full description
First, you will be picked up from your hotel or riad (your accommodation) to Essaouira at around 08:00. Then, ride through Loudaya and Sidi Mokhtar, the two main towns before Essaouira. You will be transported through the vast and breathtaking Moroccan landscape, peppered with a few scattered villages, some camels, sheep and goats grazing in the countryside.

Afterwards, pause in the Argan groves to take pictures of the Argan tree and flying goats after a 2-hour ride. Arriving to Essaouira, you will explore Essaouira’s port, a stunning Jewish quarter and Berber markets. During this free time, explore this charming Portuguese city before heading to Essaouira’s coast to enjoy a delicious meal with a scenic view of the coast. Have time to observe the charming sights of Essaouira, including its ocher-colored walls, the beautiful Moulay El Hassan Square.

Finally, you will stroll along the Essaouira coast and enjoy the beach breeze and a relaxing walk along the beach before you sit in your vehicle to take your ride back to Marrakech. Be dropped off at your hotel or riad to conclude your full-day trip of Essaouira.
