DescriptionStart your day trip to Essaouira from Marrakech with a drive along the Haouz planes to Chichaoua village where you will rest with a cup of delicious coffee before continuing on to Sidi Mokhtar. On your way, you will cross through a forest of Argan trees. Stop and take some photos before you carry on your journey. Visit a local cooperative and learn how some fine cosmetic products are locally made out of the rich Argan oil. Watch how Argan oil (also called liquid gold, or Moroccan oil) is extracted. Learn more about this cooperative which was created as part of the national program to improve the socio-economic development of rural women. From here, carry on to Essaouira. Upon arrival, you will explore the beautiful city at your leisure. Exploring Essaouira is easy on your own: locals are very friendly, the Medina is pretty small, and its streets are in order. You definitely do not need a guide for the tour of the city. However, if you want one your driver will help you hire a local guide for the tour of the city. First, you can visit the harbor with its fishing port and old Portuguese fortifications. You can still see medieval war cannons aligned in order to overlook the Atlantic Ocean. Stop and have a delicious and relaxed lunch at one of the many restaurants, before being escorted back to Marrakech by your professional driver.
