We were collected from our hotel on time and had no problems with the journey ,the driver though quiet was polite and drove safely,though I would have preferred to drive back non stop we had to stop on the request of some females who not only wanted the toilet but a smoke break as well,all in all reliable and value for money.
Essaouira is a must see, I just wish I went a different way. This isn't a tour, it's a long, crowded bus ride. The driver was very old, and not very considerate. I asked him several times to put the air on. It was very hot in the back, and the bus was full. He was speeding down the road, not speaking, and he flew right past the area where the goats sit up in the trees. The whole bus started screaming to stop, but he just kept going.
The seats are tiny, I'm not a big guy, but my arms and legs were touching the woman next to me for the entire ride. She was friendly, but she must've had onions for lunch. I think it's better to stay overnight in Essaouira anyway. If you do a day trip there, you spend more time on the road
The trip there made a lot more stops than we had expected: we stopped first at a rest stop within 45min of departure, and then at an argan oil co-op where we stayed for 30min and the driver had indicated another stop to take some photos which the whole bus vetoed.. the way home there was only one stop, thankfully. it was a much longer drive there than it needed to be, but we made it and enjoyed our time in Essaouira. the meeting location was easy to find, but we only had about 4.5 hours to explore the city. An actual earlier departure we were told between 8-830, but it was 930 when we actually left Marrakesh and no organ oil co-op would have made this a much better experience. but for the price, it was what it was.
