An excellent trip to Essaouira with our driver Miloud, who provided running commentary and answered our numerous questions on the 2 and half hour ride. Essaouira, a fishing village and resort town on the Atlantic coast, was a nice respite from the hectic pace of Marrakech. In Essaouira, we were med by Abdul who guided us on a winding tour from the fishing harbor and market built by the Portuguese in the 15th century through the medina. Abdul was very knowledgeable about the mixed cultural heritage which enriched the town -- Spanish Andalucian settlers, Sephardic Jews after the Spanish Inquisition. Portuguese and Dutch explorers, French colonization and Islam. We learned a great deal about local life and traditions. It was a worthwhile experience.

Our trip to Essaouira was wonderful. Mohammed picked us up from our riad in a comfortable large car and drove us to Essaouira. He asked what we were interested in seeing, did not push us to visit anything we didn't want to see. We stopped a couple of times to see a views and also the women's argan oil cooperative worth a visit, very clean toilets. He then introduced us to Aziz, our enthusiastic and friendly guide in Essaouira. He is a local and was able to tell us about the community and best places to shop. He then took us to a great spot on the beach for a lovely lunch.
We had some time to wander the streets by ourselves after lunch and Mohammed meet us at the agreed time and place for our drive back.
A great experience with very helpful, friendly people.

We very much enjoyed our trip! The driver and the guide were both very nice and helpful. Essaouira is a lovely coastal city. A nice contrast to Marrakesh. I would highly recommend this tour.
