The captivating Medina of Essaouira, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where a rich history, vibrant culture, and stunning coastal views converge to create an unforgettable experience.

Famous for its tradewinds, known locally as alizé, Essaouira is a picturesque port town with a bohemian vibe, frequented by windsurfers between the months of April and August. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it is also a superb example of an 18th-century fortified town and a major seaport, connecting Morocco and sub-Saharan Africa with Europe and beyond. A diverse range of ethnic and religious groups have co-existed here throughout history, including Africans, Arabs, Greeks, Christians, Jews and Muslims, making it a thought-provoking centre of multiculturalism. Accompanied by your private guide, discover the highlights of Essaouira, including the ancient city walls known as “Skala de la Ville”, the medina’s spice-filled laneways, vibrant souks, and the fishing port with its assortment of bright blue boats. Learn about the city’s rich history as a strategic port, explore its vibrant art scene, and admire panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. This is generally a half day tour.
