Una piacevole giornata fuori Marrakesh, per cedere capre sugli alberi, produzione di olio di argan e Essaouria. Piacevole passeggiare nel porto con le tipiche barche da pesca. Consiglio anche di inoltrarvi al mercato del pesce (entro l’ora di pranzo), per proseguire nel centro della città

It was very beautiful, nice trip and views and especially Mohamed always helpful and open to answer all the questions and curiosity of the culture. ESSAOUIRA is definitely one of the best place in Morocco, amazing! Thanks

Excellently experience with honest and helpful people. So great to get out of the city of Marrakech to see the Atlantic Ocean. I love the slower pace here and being able to look in the shops without being harrassed.

Great agency! They explain before the trip what we can expect. We had 3 stops; 1. breakfast,2.goat Tree, 3. Agram oil and then the 4.5hours to spend at essaouria which was enough! Great day trip! Recommend!

Anass was a great, friendly and pleasant driver with whom I enjoyed sharing this road! Essaouira is a very beautiful city to visit!
