Essaouira Medina Private Day Tour

Marrakech: the great Imperial City of Morocco is the ideal starting point for some of the most interesting excursions in Morocco.

Departure from  Marrakech  Duration  1 Day

Day trip to the Atlantic Ocean, Essaouira, Argan Trees and Mogador Medina from Marrakech

We depart early from the red city of Marrakech to discover the charming blue and white coastal medina of Essaouira which is almost three hours drive away. Essaouira or the old Mogador is a city that bears the marks of the times when Spain, Portugal and England fought to control the Atlantic coasts. It has a picturesque harbour with outstanding examples of Moorish and Portuguese architecture, with Spanish cannons standing proud along the walls. The fishing port is often full of brightly painted blue boats and the fishermen can be seen selling their wonderful array of exotic fish and seafood as the seagulls dive for tasty morsels. Essaouira is known for its medina, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also known for the artwork and many gifted artisans who work there; beautiful glossy carved wooden products are made from Thuya, a rare wood found in the region, metalwork and ceramics, raffia and textiles are among the treasures to be found in the narrow medina streets. Essaouira is perhaps best known for its Gnawa music, the legendary annual world music festival and its history that talks of the black slaves who brought the spiritual music to its shores. Make sure you sample the excellent seafood in the many restaurants while you are there. A visit to this region is not complete without a visit to one of the Argan Oil co-operatives. This part of the country is where the Argan trees grow and in these work places women process the nuts by hand into the world famous health giving oils and other products used in cosmetics and for cooking. You will be able to visit their shop too and purchase their handmade products if you wish. We return to Marrakech in the afternoon.
