What people are saying about Essaouira

We left at 2 pm the of the wonderful creatures, the dromedaries, of which I had only heard stories .. exciting! It seems to descend into another era .. Aladdin, sultan, timbuktu and many other dromedaries guided with love by Mustafa, who is really able to communicate with them with kindness. And then an overnight stay in a fabulous Berber tent by the sea, with a breathtaking sunset right in front of us, tasting green tea and biscuits AND again a typical Moroccan dinner in front of the fire, with the tales of Mustafa What can I say, a beautiful experience ! Ps bring a pajama because despite the nice blankets, in the tent you need!

Great experience! Professional introduction and equipment. The tour is incredibly fun, you drive through the dunes and on the beach and see the abandoned Essaouira away from the hustle and bustle in the city. Super nice team and guide who takes pictures during the tour. I would recommend it to everyone :)

Going on a quad tour was the perfect way to explore the desert landscape and coastline. Our guide only spoke Arabic but made sure we were safe and had a great experience. Can only recommend doing this for 3 hours of breathtaking scenery and adrenaline.

Perfect! Friendly staff, great introduction to the Quadbikes, fantastic route along the beach and through the dunes. Solely the quads themselves were quite old, but still had the power to get the adrenaline pumping.

An incredible experience with our guide Mustapha! A high afternoon in adventure on camel back between desert expanse and Atlantic Ocean. Then, a magical evening around a dinner and a typical bed. Thank you !
