Our day excursion itinerary:

Our 1-day excursion to Essaouira has a lot of activities that you can do during your stay in Essaouira (previously known as Mogador), like visiting the Wood Crafts Museum or getting a panoramic view from the old watchtower at the port. You may also pass through the Puerta de la Marina Gate, which connects the port with the rest of the city, or you can watch a fish auction taking place in the port.

However, perhaps the most interesting part about Essaouira would be its old Medina, with narrow alleyways filled with artisanal products displayed for sale. The mix of all the different kinds of craftsmanship gives a unique vibe straight out of a fairytale. Outside the medina, in the upper part of the city, you will find many cannons remaining from the 16th and 17th centuries, great for photographs.

Nearby you’ll look at a bird’s eye view of Essaouira, an enthralling and artistic blue-and-white town. Once you arrive in Essaouira you’ll explore its peculiar wonders at your leisure.

In this coastal Moroccan city, the ramparts are witnesses that will give you an insight into how this old seaport village was well-armed against the threat of invasion.

Drive back to Marrakech late in the afternoon, and your full 1-day excursion to Essaouira will conclude with a drop-off at your hotel or the closest car-accessible location to your riad.

3 day trip Fez to Marrakesh Amazing trip! We had Mohammed as a guide and he was so sweet and caring. The advantage of being in a small group is that you get to stop wherever you want to take pictures, you simply need to ask! We are backpackers so we weren’t too sure about the hole organized trip thing but it was perfect as we were in a small group and had a lot of freedom! Thank you so much Mohammed for this amazing time!

"Magical Trip in Morocco" I’m so glad I found this travel agency to be my host in my trip. They provide extraordinary programs, which we wholeheartedly recommend to all who want to see the real Morocco. The food and clothing that this country have are very unique and worth the whole way here, and sleeping in the desert camp under the open sky, where only the sky is our blanket is magical. You can go by riding camels or take a 4×4 they back to the hotel which gives you the choice to choose your best way. The attendants are very kind and provide a high quality service. If you are planning to visit this wonderful country, make sure to rely on this agency and you are guaranteed to have a magical experience. Add this in the end... Thank you Hassan, and see you soon again Let's Visit Morocco

A New Fave Destination “Expectation vs. Reality” the line I want to describe about Morocco.😊 At first, I don’t have high expectation about the country but when I landed on it, I felt “WOW”. I felt like I am in my comfort zone. The travel agency is so accommodating and friendly. They entertain and guide all of us in every destination. So far, All of the places had a really great impact just like ice cream that have so many flavors that in every taste of it, you feel satisfied! It was really a great experience and a new fave destination that I want to go back and where my heart felt at ease. I really recommend this place and the travel agency for a worthy and memorable travel. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
