4-hour journey for a 20-minute stop in a bar, we stopped for a photo with a goat in the tree and we stopped where they make Argan oil, if you don't want to, you don't buy, they leave you free. We visited the city with a guide for 3 hours free. On the way back we didn't want to stop for a café we arrived at +0- 9. I know Spanish with Italian you're screwed nobody knows. Loved it.

For the price, it was a good trip. Essaouira is cute and interesting small town. However, in the fancier restaurant we were recommended, it took about 40min to get our food and considering the short duration of the trip as well as burning sun, it really got to our nerves. Food was good though. As for the argan oil cooperative, it was cool to see how argan oil was made and seemed like a legit places where you can support local women's work. However, some of the women in the shop were super agressive sellers. I wanted to look around the shop before deciding what to buy but had to just slipt out at first chance without even seeing everthing just to get away from one women agressively interrogating me why I don't want to buy anything. I tried to tell her I just haven't decided yet but it didn't help and situation became super uncomfortable. But other than that it was a nice trip worth the money.

Tuvimos una gran excursión de un día en Essaouira.Era una ciudad realmente agradable con un ambiente diferente a Marrakech y un gran guía. Explicó todo muy bien en español, inglés y francés. Zaid es el mejor de los mejores guías turísticos, nos propuso los mejores restaurantes, a buenos precios, comida saludable de pescado de la calle, con langostas y mucho pescado fresco. El viaje por carretera de Marrakech a Essaouira es un poco agotador, pero vale la pena hacerlo.
