Essaouira or the pearl of the Atlantic, this world heritage city, maintains the charm and authenticity of a land lost in time. Essaouira has become an essential stage on the trip to Morocco. The adventurous explorer will be fascinated by the hospitable friendliness of the people of this city, which is not surprising since they have lived for centuries at the crossroads of cultures, civilizations and religions. The city is well known with its factories of Tuya wood, the women’s cooperatives of Argan oil and carpets.
On our excursion to Essaouira we propose a stop at a women’s cooperative to see a demonstration of local women preparing Argan oil.
On arrival in the city, you can take a walk in the Medina of Essaouira, visit the port, and then enjoy a lunch of fresh fish on the grill in the local restaurants of the port. If you wish, we can hire a local guide who will take you on a tour of the City.
