It was a great experience! We had very nice driver. He picked up us on time, his van was spotless clean. He explained schedule for whole day. In Essaouira we joined larger group with local guide. He was great! Very friendly and knowledgeable! We loved Essaouira too! Worth a day trip from Marrakech.

Pick up was on time. Vehicle was in perfect condition and our driver was a true professional. Did three stops on our way there as described in the excursion details. In Essaouira our guide was Zaid Ait Bahadou. Tour guide is not mandatory but i strongly advise anyone to follow it. Took us 1,5 hour. Can't say enough about this man, he was possibly the best guide i have ever met. Friendly, relaxed and explained everything without any rush, fluently in three languages (English, French and Spanish). In the end we asked him and he suggested a restaurant with delicious food and good prices. Really made a difference, our trip to this city wouldn't be so good without him.

Everything was on schedule. They picked us from our hotel and we had a comfortable vehicle. When we arrived at easouira we had a tour guide for one hour. His name is zaid and he did an excellent job. Showed us every detail of the place and history, and he was also funny making some jokes. Totally recommend. Yhe price is really cheap for this experience.
