Essaouira Day Trip from Marrakech
From $28.39
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
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 roughly 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.

Some 200 years and more back in history Essaouira must have looked differently. The cannons are witness of some Spanish occupation.

Excellent day out. Coach trip was informative, stopping for photo sessions on the way. Essaouria is a lovely place, less crowded than Marrakech, not hassled as much, but just as much to see and buy! Would definitely recommend for a day trip if you can.

Yes you do get to stop for about 10 minutes to take pictures but it is staged for the tourists but it is quite funny though
