Very nice day in Essaouira, dense, but worth the detour. Good driver and friendly guide. On the other hand 3 hours of road to go and 3 hours to return. On the way there, pick up of all the people doing the excursion (10-12 people) then express stop to take a tourist photo of goats in a tree, and stop of 30-45 minutes maximum, in an oil cooperative of argon. 1:30h guided tour in Essaouira and 3h (meal included in time but not in price).

This was the highlight of our trip while in Morocco. This coastal town is beautiful! The shopping is great too - found so many great pieces of art and clothes here. Since my friend was interested in learning about the Jewish history behind this town, our tour guide took me and my friends to the Jewish Quarters within the city when the official tour was over. We were able to visit a Jewish school that made beautiful jewelry and were able to buy it. I think the tour guide’s name was Zaid - I could be wrong. But he was so kind and even had his friends sing Happy Birthday to me in French and Arabic, since it was my birthday. So sweet! Wish we could’ve stayed here longer. This experience was unforgettable!

We were told to be picked up at 7:40am and were picked up at 8:25am, then we were taken to another shuttle bus, after which we lost time again as one had to be picked up from some restaurant. So that was the only negative. The driver named Abdel was very nice, spoke English with us, took 3 breaks with photo stops, first break was a rest stop, 2nd stop goat trees, 3rd stop Argan Coorparative how it is made. Upon arrival in Essaouira we were handed over to a guide named Zayd who explained the tour in English and French. We had enough free time to explore the city ourselves! Essaouira is recommended Beach and old town!
