The best of the excursion, Zakaria Elkhal, the guide. The trip to and from Essaouria (3 hours each) flew by thanks to him. You can tell that he is passionate about what he does, and that he has a lot of knowledge about his country and its culture. Some 10 explanations in several languages, including very good Spanish and English. He answered all our questions, even if they were not related to the excursion, very willingly and with a smile. He also recommended places to eat in Essaouria. He did everything possible to make our experience during the excursion unbeatable. The driver, Ramamya, was very friendly and less reckless than most drivers in Marrakech, we felt quite safe during the trip. Between them they livened up the journey with music of all tastes, and accepted suggestions. It's so nice to go discover new places, thank you very much to both of you. Completely recommended!

Very good trip accompanied by our driver Ibrahim as well as our guide Omar, this day would not have gone the same without them. Everything is included in the price, the return transfer, the visits, and the explanations in the mini bus, this one is clean air-conditioned and our guide does everything to ensure that we miss nothing. Our guides are attentive, they offered us good local restaurants that are inexpensive and accessible, the 4 hours of free time are more than enough to walk or do an activity. I highly recommend this activity and I thank Omar's team and Ibrahim

Omar and Ibrahim are very lovely Guides. We had a great day Trip to Essaouira. The communication before the Trip was super. We learned a lot about the morrocan history on the Trip, had an interesting stopover at an aegan cooperation and had a lot of free time to walk around essaourira. Highly recommend this tour! Would book again if I ever come back to morocco

Fascinating city and very different from chaotic Marrakech. First stop at a women's cooperative that produces Argan oil, immediately after we arrive in the city of Essaouira which immediately struck us with its tranquility, very friendly people and excellent food. I recommend this tour to everyone

We had a great time with Zakaria Elkhal and Ramanya, they are very good and nice people who explained everything to us about the place and left us 4 and a half hours to wander freely while remaining available for anything. Thank you, I'm satisfied.
