Itinerary of the Private Day Trip to Essaouira
We will pick you up from your Marrakech hotel or Riad at 8:00 AM. Then, we will journey along the scenic R207 route towards the coast. Along the way, we'll make a stop to witness a unique sight: goats climbing the low branches of argan trees. Sometimes, you can spot up to 20 goats perched in a single tree, making for a fascinating photo opportunity.
We will also visit a women's cooperative where argan oil is produced. This oil, derived from argan tree kernels, is not only a delicious addition to Moroccan bread meals but also a versatile beauty product used for skin and hair treatment.
Our day trip to Essaouira from Marrakech will take us to this coastal resort and port city, offering breathtaking views of the North Atlantic Ocean.
