This was a good trip. Essaouira is a calm oasis from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. The trip itself was easy to book and we were picked up from our hotel at the agreed time. The driver Youssef was friendly and knowledgeable. The drive took about 3 hours and we made three stops along the way. Firstly a comfort break, secondly to see goats placed in trees for photo opportunities (a bit sad) and lastly a women's argan cooperative. This was interesting but a bit odd, the women clearly work hard, but they are after such a hard sell that it was off putting. We then had four and a half hours in Essaouira which is ample time to explore the Medina, castle walls and marvel at the impressive roaring sea. I highly recommend this trip and our driver.
The trip was easy. Essaouira is too commercial but worth going once for a couple of hours. Booking the trip was straight forward. Communication was excellent. I am not convinced the Argan cooperative we stopped by was certified. Although it was interesting to learn about the process, it nevertheless felt like a tourist trap. That’s the only shadow on this trip.
Great Experience! Essaouria is beautiful city, we enjoyed the ride with Alluri ( bus driver for Ando company) He was really nice explaining everything about the landscape and the habits of Moroccan people and cities.I recommend these trip!
Lovely day out, this is an interesting place. I can’t thank the driver enough for such a good day, from the pick up to the drop off.
Great place to relax a little, and see how the coast cities looks like. Cat's there are in paradise :D everyday fresh fish :D
