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.
