Essaouira Day Tours, with a local

We love Morocco, no doubt about that. However, sometimes the big cities can get a little overwhelming. The coastal paradise of Essaouira is like a breath of fresh air, and venturing through its magical streets with a local is the best way to explore it. On one of our Essaouira tours, we’ll take you to the cute pastry shops and hidden nooks and crannies that aren’t even common knowledge to the residents! 

Want to create your own customised Best. Day. Ever? Something totally unique and special and tailored just for you and your friends and family? Well, you're in luck - we offer bespoke tours too! Just enter your info into our Create Your Own request form, and let us know how we can give you your own perfect Urban Adventure.
