Scratch beneath the surface of Essaouria by uncovering the secrets of the souk, visiting a local ladies' argan oil cooperative and enjoying a camel ride on the beach.
The tour begins when you’re picked up from your accommodation, and begin wandering the winding, atmospheric streets of Essaouira, glowing a gentle, pastel blue and lined with picturesque shops and stalls.
An artistic hub in Morroco, this is the place where the famous Gnawa music originated, and you’ll explore the beautiful, bustling souk and take in the artisans at work, carrying out craftsmanship that has been passed down over generations.
Then, you’ll be off to see a side to life often missed by the tourists, but essential to life in Essaouira. Visit a ladies cooperative, where you can learn, and witness how these skilled workers extract and produce argan oil, a product ubiquitous with this corner of Morroco.
Soak in the laid-back, atmospheric vibe of this idyllic port city, with its flaking walls, ancient harbour, and vibrant fish market, before ending your experience with a gentle camel along the stretch of beach, offering beautiful views of the city and the Atlantic Ocean.
