Private Essaouira Day Tours

Private & Guided visit by official guide from Marrakech or Agadir

Essaouira is a nice berber woman that neither the age, or the delinquency of  time, or treachery and the abandonment of his lovers were right of its beauty! She remained nice, spellbinding, enchanting, of a beauty to be guessed, but legible on the face upset by the wrinkles of time and winds.

And as all women of harbors, from Amsterdam to Hamburg, it contents herself with love affairs passengers, lovers always outbound, accepting the abandonment as a fate. And however, it is not the men who missed in his life!

It been disappointed by his love affairs outbound?

She it was contained on her even not so as to like more anybody?

Oh no!

It is of its nature to succumb to his visitors at first glance! It opens you big the arms, pierces you of its mysterious look to such an extent that you would not avoid the common law of its seduction, and as those who preceded you, you will fall in love with Essaouira Mogador the charmer.

And as those who liked it and fell away in his loneliness, you will leave it too but can be it so better. T.GHALI

For the visitor, the mellow atmosphere, narrow winding streets, colorful shops,  whitewashed houses and heavy old wooden doors make it a wonderful place to stroll.

The dramatic, wave-lashed ramparts that surround the medina are a great place to get an overview of the labyrinth of streets. The ramparts were famously used in the opening scene of Orson Welles’ Othello for a panoramic shot where Iago is suspended in a cage above the rocks and sea. The easiest place to access the ramparts is at Skala de la Ville , the impressive sea bastion built along the cliffs. A collection of European brass cannons from the 18th and 19th centuries lines the walkway here and you’ll also get great views out to sea and gorgeous sunsets.
