Essaouira Day Trip from Marrakech
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. Pre-booking 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 consistent 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 historic fortifications with great views of the ocean. Sip a mint tea in the Moulay el Hassan square, browse for souvenirs at the bazaars, and try fresh-caught, local seafood at an open-air restaurant—you'll have the freedom to see and do what you want.

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

Relaxing day away from Marrakech with cheaper, friendlier market

We stayed in a Riad so we were picked up at a local pick up point which was used by every company we used. The driver arrived on time in a modern black Mercedes minivan with the company logo visible on the side. The driver...More
