5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Cute little city with some Portuguese influence. The drive was about 2.5 hours but a relaxing trip out of the hectic scenes in Marrakech.

My husband and I highly recommend taking this excursion from Marrakech to Essaouira. This was our first excursion and loved every bit of it. Our driver was also our guide, Abdul. He was knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, and made our trip enjoyable from recommendations on where to have lunch to directions getting around the medina. He gave us plenty of time to explore the city as well as take pictures of the famous blue boats. He also took us to see picturesque farm life as well as an Argan oil cooperative run by local women. I literally stocked up as the prices are less than half compared with what I pay in the US. This is a must do excursion and taking a private trip is the way to go. My husband and I noticed groups waiting for their bus to pick them up and other passengers to arrive. My husband and I just arranged a time that suited us and Abdul, was there waiting for us and we were set. The minivan is well-maintained and amenities such as bottled water is really nice. I would do this tour again and would recommend Abdul to our friends and family for any tour or excursion from or to Marrakech.

Great trip, Abdul driver / guide made the drive very enjoyable explaining the many sights on the drive to Essaouira and stopping to let us take pictures when we wanted. We had a relaxed day exploring Essaouira - I'd highly recommend.
