What to expect

Essaouira is a character-filled seaside city that's known as the ‘Jewel of the Atlantic'. It's famous for its Medina and European military architecture, and infamous for its pirate haven past. You'll explore its harbour, Medina and arts scene on this day tour from Marrakech, and you'll also have a free afternoon to soak up its bohemian atmosphere, fish auction and souks.

On arrival in Essaouira, your guide will take you on a tour of the city past the port, municipal market, jewellers' district and artisan centre. Its mellow atmosphere, narrow winding streets, colourful shops, whitewashed houses, and heavy old wooden doors make it a wonderful place to wander around.

Once you have a feel for the place, you'll have free time for lunch and to check out the artisan shops and galleries. We'll also visit an argan oil cooperative where you can try some local products.
