Day trip Essaouira From Marrakech
We drive West in the direction of the sea. we may have the chance to watch the goats on trees of Argan. The trees are along a few kilometers before reaching Essaouira. Essaouira is small charming town, We also call it the city of Gnawa or the city of artists, since many artists and musician choose to take Essaouira as their hometown. The city is also a place for one for famous festivals in Morocco Gnawa Festival. Essaouira was founded by the Portuguese and they use to call it Mogador.
The Portuguese city of Mogador was influenced by a French architect follower of Vauban. These influences gave a unique and very interesting result. Today, the city became, little by little, a city of artists as I said. Essaouira has an extremely favorable microclimate granting mild temperature in winter and cool weather in summer. Not to forget also the beautiful beach protected by the nearby islands. Which make Essaouira one of the best areas in Morocco for Beach Activities like surf or windsurf etc.

Besides the cultural side of the tour, you can also choose to make your tour an adventure tour, we can help you book all kind of activities that Essaouira offers.
