Choose your adventure
Taking a day trip from Marrakesh is a great way to escape from the bustle of the city and explore quieter locations. Head for the breathtaking Atlas Mountains where you’ll have the chance to hike around Imlil and Toubkal National Parc, view the beautiful Ouzoud Waterfalls, meet with the local people, and enjoy a walk along Ourika Valley and Setti Fatma's natural splendor. Or explore the beautiful seaside town of Essaouira by wandering among the sun-dabbled fortress walls as the waves crash nearby. Or head down south to Ouarzazat, where the gorgeous landscape has been the backdrop to many classic films, and see the many historic kasbahs. The choices are yours!
ESSAOUIRA DAY TOUR FROM MARRAKECH
Take a full-day private trip to Essaouira, one of Morocco’s most attractive coastal towns. It’s charm is undeniable, with its white washed and blue shuttered houses, art galleries, wood workshops, fishermen and colorful boats, all enclosed by ancient red walls.
Your private tour start at your hotel or riad at 08:00. Depart Marrakech, driving through lush valleys filled with orange groves, ancient olive trees, and working farms. Stop at Chichaoua for a coffee or snack at Cafe Afoulki.
Continue past your first Argan trees. These special trees are valued for their nutritive, cosmetic, and medicinal properties. A relic species from the Tertiary age, is extremely well adapted to drought and other environmentally difficult conditions of southwestern Morocco, and while now endangered, under the protection of UNESCO.
