Tuvimos una gran excursión de un día en Essaouira.Era una ciudad realmente agradable con un ambiente diferente a Marrakech y un gran guía. Explicó todo muy bien en español, inglés y francés. Zaid es el mejor de los mejores guías turísticos, nos propuso los mejores restaurantes, a buenos precios, comida saludable de pescado de la calle, con langostas y mucho pescado fresco. El viaje por carretera de Marrakech a Essaouira es un poco agotador, pero vale la pena hacerlo.

The very interesting excursion during the trip they stop once to have a coffee, then to see the poor goats up in the trees and the last stop to see the cooperative of women extracting the argan oil and of course their visit to the store with all the facilities to leave the money. Once there we were with a Spanish guide for an hour to show us the most important things and the least pleasant thing was that he took the 9 people in the group to a restaurant and directly invited us to sit down without consulting us, nor providing the menu (which by the way the prices were quite high). Of course no one stayed. The guide left angrily without saying goodbye. This time he ran out of commission.... then we had free time until 5 when we returned to Marrakech.

The driver picked us up directly at the Riad as planned. Very punctual. Then about 3 hours of driving interspersed with a coffee break on a motorway service area, then a goat tree photo point and finally an argan oil cooperative. Once arrived in ESSAOUIRA, a guide, Zaif, awaits us for a guided tour. It is not mandatory but I strongly recommend it, you can learn a lot of beautiful things there. Zaid was very considerate, chasing the soliciting vendors to avoid them getting in our way and reacted very well by getting us to safety when a fight broke out at the market between two fishmongers… They finally took us to a rooftop restaurant that he advises us. Very good place for grilled fish! Free time of about 2h-2h30 to eat and do some shopping in the medina. The return to Marrakech also went very well with a coffee break. Recommended trip!
