Day Trip: Marrakech To Essaouira

A day of adventure will include the exploration of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Medina (city) of Essaouira and Portuguese city of Mogador. You will learn about the process of how Argan oil is manufactured, visit the market in Skala du Port, the Mellah (Jewish quarter), meet jewelry souks and shop at local crafter's markets. This day trip includes lunch and your choice to ride motorized quads or camels or horses in a pre-arranged side excursion in the small dune village of Diabat.

When booking, we will set the itinerary to make this the perfect trip. Riding Camels, Berber Horses and quads in the dunes of Ranch de Diabat, about 7 kilometers from Essaouira, will give you some great memories of Morocco.

This day trip has alot of everything, for everyone:

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage site of Medina (city) of Essaouira. Essaouira is a very charming and colorful town, located on the Atlantic Coast about two and a half hours drive from Marrakesh. It is an ideal place for those who want to unwind, enjoy the tourist attractions and experience the authenticity of this region of Morocco.

In this day trip from Marrakesh to Essaouira you'll have the opportunity to visit and discover the Women's Co-operative manufacturing of Argan oil. In an ancient Berber tradition, women have been harvesting and preparing argan oil and increasing their own sustainability and wealth for generations. Visiting this site is very unique to Morocco and you must see it to appreciate it fully.

Many local markets are scattered across Morocco.

Lets get out and explore:

When we are on this day trip to Essaouira, you'll get to experience a guided visit to the Skala du Port (the municipal market), the Mellah (Jewish quarter), jewelry souks of the medina, and a handicrafts complex. We will have a break for lunch at one of the popular seafood grills, cafes and restaurants, many with wooden tables and benches laid out overlooking the Atlantic sea.

For a side-excursion within Essaouira, we can schedule a visit to Diabat, a small village at the top of the dunes, about 7 kilometers southeast of Essaouira. Ranch de Diabat arranges tours of high quality with quads on the beach, camels or Berber Horses. Please inquire for more details.
