Eassaouira is a nice change from the chaos in Marrakech. It is way more relaxed and cosy. You'll have the opportunity to see the argan oil manufactures, visit the medina and the wood manufactures and generally understand the history of Essaouira.
Nice respit from the hectic souks, a bit touristy, but different and nice.
Excellent day trip with guided tour explaining all about the town Very good
The trip to Essaouira was great; the visit to the argan co-operative on the way was really interesting too. Yemeni (probably spelt wrongly) our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and pointed things out along the way. Also, our guide in Essaouira itself was extremely good. The only downside was that the restaurant we were all taken to in Essaouira was one of the more expensive ones. Also, we were dropped off after the tour in an area that we did not know and found it difficult to get a taxi. Despite those last two points, I would recommend this trip and Essaouira is absolutely beautiful.
A GOOD VALUE DAY OUT-THEY WERE FILMING GAME OF THRONES AS THE SETTING IS SO NICE IN THE HARBOUR
Good tour for the price. The Essaouira tour was informative at the port area, but then it was more a walking tour where the guide walked us through the city. I've been to Essaouira before so it didn't bother me, but my friends weren't all that impressed.
Good trip- it was what I expected from reading previous reviews. The pick-up from the hotel was efficient and the trip was well organized. It is a long ride from Marrakech with many stops along the way, as mentioned in previous reviews. The beach was nice; however, that particular day it was too windy to stay on the beach. The guided tour around town was also interesting and permitted to have a brief overview of the city since if we spent only a few hours in Essaouira.
The actual town is well worth seeing, but I did not find the tour company helpful and the tour guide was not very friendly
I would have given the tour a 5 * as the actual trip was brilliant. The guide was exceptionally well informed and interesting. We did however have some major issues with our booking, getting it confirmed when we arrived in Marrakesh. However I would hearily recommend it to everyone!
A nice day to a fishing town; not spectacular but enjoyable and fairly interesting. Would have liked a bit more free time but apart from that no complaints.
Long day but well worth it. Shame about the weather, it rained all day and was very windy. So only downside was that we were all waiting for coach at collection time. Very good guide on coach and local guide was excellent.
excellent value does what it promises pick up details were a little shakey
