Essaouira Day Trip

Leaving The Red City behind we set a course for the coast until, after a journey of three hours, we arrive at Essaouira "The Pearl of the Atlantic."

Once in Essaouira, you will have free time to admire its fortifications, the fishing port and the labyrinthian old town, where you can bask in the atmosphere and the day to day life of its inhabitants. The town too boasts a seemingly unending beach and it is recommended to try the delicious freshly caught fish and seafood.

The tour will then set off back to Marrakech, returning to the city in the late evening. And from this point onwards, you will never again ask why celebrities such as Orson Welles and Jimi Hendrix fell in love with Essaouira.

Private Excursion

If you want to enjoy this tour with an exclusive guide, you can reserve this trip in private.

Hotel Pick Up

If you're staying outside the old town, we'll pick you up for free from your hotel or riad. If your hotel is in the outskirts of Marrakech, pick up will include a supplement of between $10 and $45 (€10 and €40) depending on the area.
