This was a brilliant day out and really good value for money. We were treated very professionally, and our guide was friendly and informative. It was the perfect mix of guided tour group and free time once we got to Essaouira, and the restaurant our guide took us to for lunch was great, with delicious, fresh fish. A relaxing day out and a good chance to go round the markets without the stress and hassle of Marrakech.

An excellent day in every respect, interesting journey, just enough time at the womens cooperative which was interesting too. The short and informative guided tour was very good and the amount of free time just right. We chose to eat at the restaurant our guide suggested , it was right on the sea front and we were very happy with the food and service.The transport was excellent and our guide Larby added to the day with absolutely excellent Engish and pleasant manner.

It's a long drive from Marrakesh to Essaouira so we could have done without the additional stops along the way. Essaouira is beautiful though and a much more laid back place the Marrakesh; beautiful beach - if a little windy!

Excellent guide and a great day out. Loved the little port and its markets. Plenty to see and if you wanted to get away from it all time to just unwind and walk along the beach.

The tour and mainly the guide was perfect.Only one notice. It would be better if also people that not stay in 5 or 4 stars hotels in Marrakech could have a pick-up service and can go back to their hotel of residence.But the guide was very kind and dropped my wife and me close to the most important square of Marrakech.

An enjoyable day with enough time to explore Essaouira on our own. Taken in a minibus the trip did not feel like we were being herded about, but it was friendly and informative. The usual tourists stops at an argan oil co-operative and a wood skills co-op but both were interesting and not too much hard pressure selling. I would recommend a visit to this beautiful town.

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.

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.
