Tour description provided by Viator

Visit the beach and famous port of Essaouira on a day trip from Marrakech. You'll take a guided tour of the port and have the opportunity to discover the marvelous Argan oil when you visit a Women's Co-operative manufacturing this famous product.

Formerly known by its old Portuguese name "Mogador", Essaouira is a citadel with a prestigious past. It has been occupied since prehistoric times and was famous for its Tyrian factory which supplied Rome with the legendary purple dye. A cradle for artists of all kinds, Essaouira is also well known for its fishing port and market, a hive of activity day or night.

During your time in Essaouira you will have a guided visit of the port, the Scala, the municipal market, jeweler's quarter and a handicrafts complex. There will also be time for a lunch break during the day (lunch is not included in tour price).
