    Do something different during your time in Essaouira and spend an hour exploring the beautiful countryside on horse back.

First, head towards the river with your faithful companion and discover the ruins of the old palace of the sultan Mohammed III, who revived the fortunes of the city when he invited Jews and the English to trade there. Continue along the sandy beach and get stunning views of the Portuguese castle on Mogador island in the Atlantic Ocean. Return to the ranch through the forest for the end of the services.

Glad to have chosen this activity. Essaouira is a very pretty city and the Game of Thrones themed (improvised) guided tour was great. The instructor was very kind and patient and always with a smile. They don't steal the hours! they always give a little more. I was there with my 13 and 9 year old daughters who after 20 minutes were surfing like pro! As for our guide, the high standard car, impeccable driving (we slept most of the way back) And what about a guide who offers you the typical breakfast of the country? Just top notch. Well done for this very professional service. Thanks again to Marrakech surf

Great experience for this horseback ride. The ranch is very beautiful and the horses very well maintained. The proposed route is magnificent and the guide was great (do not hesitate to communicate our expectations to the guide). We therefore recommend this center without any problem.

An extraordinary trip, the driver was very entertaining and made us all a pleasant trip, we even had the opportunity to share a dinner at the end of the trip in a typical restaurant.

Drive was easy, safe and we had free time in Essaouira, so if you like to explore places by yourself - this is a good opportunity.

The transport was perfect. the driver always kept us well informed. The very interesting visit The very good dinner
