    Loved it Calm & relaxing. Long journey 3 hours ,stopped midway for a break. Essaouria lovely city on the sea. All the magic behind the walls of the old city.

    It was a lovely day in Essaouira, even though it was raining. We arrived at about midday and had to leave by 4.30pm. I wish we had a little more time. We stopped three times and I wish we had gone straight to Essaouira and had more time there. It’s a lovely little city – cheaper than Marrakech for shopping and eating, and the sea is beautiful even in wet weather.

    Had an amazing day. Wish my time in Morocco would have allowed me more time in Essaouira as it is a lovely charming seaside town. Pick up was on time. Stopped for the goats and the Argan coop was good.

    I had an amazing two-day stay, including one night, in Zagora. Our driver, Mustapha, was incredibly friendly, helpful, resourceful, and kind. I highly recommend this trip and especially recommend Mustapha. Make sure to bring plenty of water and some warm clothes, as it gets chilly at night in the desert.
