The transport was late in the morning when your waiting in the cold no shelter for 30mins. Transport was not the best.Arrangements given were not good either. Essaouira was lovely. We had nice food too. Walked around the harbour with all the fresh fish. Shops are cheaper.soft sand on the beach.very relaxing place

Essaouira has a beach, but no facilities and the beach isn't spectacular. The Medina has some history, but is generally a market with inflated prices for tourist. The guides which offer assistance are scammers who will try to rub you blind. If you do take a guide and negotiate a price ahead of time, make sure it's the same person taking you through the Medina. They usually get a "friend" to take you, then when the tour is finished, the "friend" tries to negotiate their share above the original price. Could have omitted this visit.

Basic transportation in a full but comfortable mini-bus. As description notes, stopped for argan oil, to take pictures of goats in trees and a quick rest stop.

Loved this day trip! We had an amazing driver named Kiki and he was very nice. He offered a tour guide as an option as well when we arrived to Essaouira but most of the folks on the trip decided to explore alone. He was super friendly and kind! The trip also included a trip to an Argan oil cooperative and a chance to take pictures with the goats that climb the argan trees. I highly recommend this trip because it is a great price and is a good day trip from Marrakech.

Does exactly what it says on the tin - transport from and back to Marrakech. Stopped off to see the goats eating argan nuts in trees - which was great.

Firstly, this is not what I would call a tour, it is an easy way to visit Essaouira from Marrakech and that was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. So, with that in mind the driver is just a driver and not a guide. It takes about three hours to get there. We stopped twice on the way a short stop to see goats in a tree, and a ten to fifteen-minute stop at a women's Argan oil collective 2nd one I had been at and found the prices for Argan products very expensive, Once you get to Essaouira at 12:00, the driver drops you off at a very central location, right next to the beach and in front of the media area. You then have about 4 hours plenty time to explore this fantastic city. At 1600 the driver returns right on time at the appointed hour. There are many areas you can comfortably sit and wait for the van if you'd like. On the drive back, you make one stop for bathroom and snacks. Back in Marrakech you are dropped off at your hotel. If you are look for a simple hassle-free option to get to Essaouria from Marrakesh, this is your trip and it is well worth the journey.
