This was a great change of pace from Marrakech. The Medina of Essaouira is much more relaxed!

We booked this trip for our one year anniversary and it was very nice. First our driver , Ismael, was very nice and funny , he had very good jokes , was very friendly , and accommodating , he stoped whenever we asked. He was also very knowledgeable about tons of things which made the drive seem shorter.

My husband and two teenage boys went on this trip. The driver was very friendly and the local guide was also good. The goats in the tree on the way were the best bit according to my boys. Highly recommend this tour.
