What people are saying about Essaouira Beach
The trip with our guide Ibrahim and driver Mohammed was entertaining, Ibrahim spoke great German and showed us everything we wanted to see, the Toyota SUV was really comfortable. If you want to be looked after flexibly and personally during the excursion and are keen to learn a local's insider knowledge and to be in direct contact, this tour is perfect for you. In the future we will only book tours in the appropriate constellation. It doesn't get any better. Special praise goes to Ibrahim. He did his job perfectly, we still talk about him every day Essaouira per se was not that good for us, but that's very subjective. It was too cold, too windy and raining for us ... not good conditions for us sun-hungry North Germans
It was super exciting and exciting. Also a very good change :) I can only recommend it. It was a lot of fun for us !!
