We’ll organised & enjoyable day trip to Essaouira. Pick up was on time at 8.15am. 3 hours drive there inc 3 short stops (Kids loved the Argan goats). Guided tour of the town is included but can opt out if preferred. Total of 4 hours in Essaouira. Try the grilled seafood in one of the huts near the port (we chose hut 14) - delicious & good value. And stroll through the medina & ramparts, more relaxed than Marrakech & sellers less hassly. 3 hours drive back with 1 short stop.

Essaouira is wonderful. The excursion started with a tour around the old style town and then there was enough time to visit the clean beach. There's lots of food places around there, best known for its fish. Plenty of opportunity to shop a variety of things. It is very peaceful in comparison to Marrakech; noone bothers you too much.

This is a must do on any trip to Casablanca! My driver REDA, who also drove the trip to Rabat is fantastic and beyond helpful and accommodating. If you get the early AM or late afternoon (sunset) the pictures are awesome!

The experience was great. The tour guide was great. At first I wanted to do this experience private but there's no need. You'll depart at the same time and return at the time whether you do it with a group of not.

The journey is not difficult and although you do not have much time on your own after the guided tour, it is enough to get to know the city.
