Full description
Start with early morning pickup from Marrakesh and begin the 175-kilometer journey to Essaouria.  Make a stop on the way for a cup of tea, and pass by many traditional local villages. See a region that is famous for the production of argan oil. Note the many argan trees throughout the journey, and enjoy a short stop to take some photos.  Upon reaching Essaouria, explore the city at your own pace. Indulge in a lunch of fresh seafood from a typical local restaurant. Explore the fortifications of the city, wander through the medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or simply relax and watch the surfers on the ocean. After a full day of exploration, meet with your driver and enjoy a comfortable transfer back to Marrakesh.

We had the privilege to have Akil as our driver. He was extremely friendly, an experienced driver and very competent in every way. His language skills were great and we had no problems understanding him. All in all the experience was outstanding and we wish Akil all the best!
