About the Tour

Immerse yourself in the sensory overload that is Essaouira. This fascinating town is a bit off the beaten track, which means it is full to the brim with authentic local life just begging to be explored.

The seaside medina is home to local fishermen carrying their daily catch as well as family-owned bakeries churning out traditional pastries, and on this 3-hour Essaouira tour, you'll have the chance to experience all of this and more!

After meeting your local guide under the clock tower inside the walls of the medina, you will begin your tour of the city of Essaouira with a stop at the oldest pastry shop in the city. As Essaouira was once home to a large Jewish community, the pastries made here are ancestral family recipes you won't find elsewhere in Morocco.

Then you will head up onto the city walls and to an ancient watchtower, where you will have a breathtaking 360-degree view of Essaouira, its port, and the ocean.

Head deep into the medina, the center of the action in Essaouira. Meet with a local artist in his studio and check out some of his work, discovering Moroccan work at the source. See a brief demonstration on Arabic calligraphy from a local artist.

Take in the atmospheric fish market and enjoy a tasty lunch of grilled fish. Being on the coast, you can certainly expect the freshest and most sustainable seafood to choose from. Sit at wooden benches and tables, right next to the locals, and choose your fresh fish to grill.

Finally, you'll head outside the medina to try a typical Moroccan dessert, then end up at an herbalist's shop to wash everything down with an aromatic Moroccan royal tea, an exclusive blend blended directly on the spot!

Once the tour is over, your guide will be happy to give you some recommendations for things to see in Essaouira, or help you find your way back to your accommodation
