    Had a fantastic trip made all the better by our lovely guide Laarbi. Had great stops on the way and Essaouira itself was fantastic!! Can't recommend enough - I will be using Viator on my future trips!!!

    The visit to the Medina and the beach was very nice. It's a long ride, but worth it. On the trip back, our driver went way out of the way to drop someone off at a resort outside of our general area. The provide hotel pickups and drop offs, but this drop off should have been last. Everyone else was delayed getting back to the main area by over an hour.

    We had a wonderful driver. He made sure we got to our destinations safely. The tour guide in Essaouira was very engaging. I highly recommend this day trip.

    The visit to Essaouria was ok.. The weather was fantastic. The downside to this trip was that guide did not provide a commentary or the history of Essaouira. there was only music on the way and back in the bus. It felt we took an intercity bus. instead of a tour bus with a guide. Some stops made were not explained in details.

    Strongly discourage anyone to book here. There was a no-show of the tour operator at the confirmed pick-up time of 8:00 AM. After multiple contact attempts, finally heard back at 9:20 via a voice message that the tour would not be happening. Very bad experience with this operator

    A very nice day out from Marrakech, it's a long drive, but a coupe of short stops helped. Interesting women's argan oil co-operative to see how the oil is traditionally prepared. Essaouira is a lovely contrast to Marrakech, the town tour was interesting. Well worth a visit.

    It’s an early pick up and a long day, but definitely worth it to get out of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech! Lots of sea food (if that’s your thing) and a really lovely beach too. Perfect day for relaxing and full of markets too. There is a guided tour that’s part of the excursion, however you can go off on your own and bypass this which we chose to do - you might end up in a big tour group and it felt a bit overwhelming so being able to go off alone was ideal! En route you’ll also get to visit an Argon Oil cooperative and be lucky enough to see the goats in the trees!

    Great day, a stop at the argan trees with the goats in them. You also make a toilet stop. And a stop at a argan company. Afterwards to Essaquira. Had a tour from 1.5 hour from the local guide, unfortunately forgot his name. Very nice to do and afterwards you still have enough time to stroll around through the many streets or visit the beach. And of course to eat fresh fish in one of the many restaurants. We found it a perfect day.
