Discover Ancient Essaouira: Full-Day Trip from Agadir

2. Discover Ancient Essaouira: Full-Day Trip from Agadir

Your day-long adventure begins as you head north from Agadir to the former Portuguese city of Essaouira, passing isolated beaches, the palace of a Saudi prince, and the village of Taghazout along the way. Once known by its Portuguese name of Mogador, the city of Essaouira is a citadel with a prestigious past, occupied by various civilizations since prehistoric times. And famous for its Tyrian factory that once supplied Rome with its legendary purple dye, Essaouira is a cradle for artists of all types. Upon your arrival in the city, embark on a tour of the port and watch as the fishing boats return home. The Bab El Marse port not only has its Sqala canons on display, but it offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Medina. Travel to the Media itself—a UNESCO World Heritage site—and go inside to meet celebrated marquetry inlayers and cabinetmakers. Stop in at the Women's Cooperative manufacturer of argan oil, and then enjoy some free time exploring the alleyways of the Medin, strolling along the endless beach, or testing out some fresh fish at a local beachfront restaurant.

The whole experience was incredibly well organised and efficient. After being picked up from our airport the drive, while long, was well spaced out with a couple of breaks to break up watching the natural desert scenery of Morocco. In Marrakech our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the local area and also made us feel incredibly safe in the busy city. We were taken around the sites of the Medina including the mosque, souk, and a few of the monuments to the 12 saints of Marrakech. The restaurant we were taken to served incredible, traditional Moroccan cuisine which was served on a rooftop terrace overlooking the souk. We also were given a couple of hours of free time, at which point I decided to visit another rooftop cafe, however there were opportunities to visit other attractions such as the main market square and some of the palaces in the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get out of Agadir for the day and experience the real Morocco!

The trip to Marrakech was excellent and exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, he made us feel comfortable and protected. The driver drove carefully along the way and we was in a nice comfortable coach with air con. We had a break along the journey to stretch our legs and grab a drink if needed. Once we arrived at Marrakech, we had a guided tour around the city and got to experience the real Morocco. I would definitely recommend and book again.

We are a group of 3 young women and felt very comfortable. Our guide kept all pushy people away and also helped you in your free time if you wanted to buy something specific. He knew his way around very well and already told us a little about the city and the country on the drive. The bus was modern and there was a break on the outward and return journeys. Absolutely recommendable!

The organization was precise respecting the timetables and providing a comfortable vehicle. The time dedicated to the visits was adequate and the guide, Akram, was helpful in everything, very welcoming and very prepared. Great way to get to know Marrakech on a day excursion.

The experience was very positive, our guide, Akram explained very well some curiosities about the various parts of Morocco. He is very nice, kind and thoughtful. Experience not to be missed!
