Essaouira Day Trip from Marrakech
US$ 26.96
Visit Essaouira from Marrakech on an excursion that takes care of the details so you can spend an independent day exploring colorful bazaars, historic ramparts, and the city’s bustling fishing port. Prebooking door-to-door transport from Marrakech to Essaouira ensures a hassle-free experience, with a bonus stop at an Argan oil cooperative along the way.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Marrakech, or at a central location, for the 3-hour trip to Essaouira, a laid-back city that’s cooled by sea breezes. On your way to Essaouira, make a stop at an Argan oil cooperative, learning how the golden oil is produced using traditional techniques.

Upon arrival in Essaouira, set out on your own to explore the compact historic center, ringed by fortifications with great views of the ocean. You'll have the freedom to see and do what you want. You can sip mint tea in the Moulay el Hassan square, browse for souvenirs at the bazaars, or try freshly caught, local seafood at an open-air restaurant.

Rejoin the driver and group after an afternoon of exploration and begin the return trip to Marrakech, where the day concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Not worth the 6 hour round trip

We booked this after reading great reviews and recommendations, unfortunately we didn’t feel the same. We were the first pick up at 7.45 and didn’t get to Essaouira until 11.50 - we stopped off on the way at a service station for snacks and toilets,...More
