    Had a great time with a very relaxed guide and driver. We stopped along the way to take a look at how goats eat argan seeds from trees directly and then moved on to spend a relaxed few hours walking around Essaouira, taking pictures, walking on the beach and enjoying the souk. It was a fantastic day trip out of Marrakesh. Hassan and Yusuf were great company and great help.

    Badly organised and not as advertised. Pick up was over an hour late. Driver spoke no English. Local guide was nice, but spoke poor English and difficult to understand. He expected a generous tip! We had to pay our own entrance to the fortress. Worth seeing town and harbour, but not with this outfit.
