Our friendly and knowledgeable guide Said, showed us around the Medina, ramparts and harbour areas. He stopped to buy fresh fish, vegetables and Argan Oil along the way, which was cooked for us in the souk. A very enjoyable way to spend half a day in Essaouira.

We had a great moment with Saïd through Essaouira. Saïd brought us through the harbour, the medina and the markets. It was a pleasure to discover a bit of Moroccan history and food culture. All this in a very nice, casual and open way. We highly recommend this tour with Saïd.
