A day trip to Essaouira from Marrakech is by far the most appreciated day tour by our clients: Many of them discover that hidden gem for the first time and decide right away they will come back for sure to a short break in the peaceful and artsy and hippy town of Essaouira.
Out of experience, Exploring Essaouira is easy on your own: Locals are very friendly, the Medina is pretty small (compared to other old towns in Morocco), and its streets are in order. You definitely do not need a guide for the tour of the city. Should you insist on one, your driver will help you hire a local guide for the tour of the city.
Late in the afternoon, drive back to Marrakech, and your full day tour to Essaouira will end with a drop off at your hotel or the nearest car accessible point to your riad.
