Description

Essaouira is becoming one of Morocco's new trendy destinations, and this overnight tour gives you time to explore the city to its fullest. Get to know the former hideaway of Hendrix and Cat Stevens with a personal driver and guide who can help you find the city's best-kept secrets.

After your driver picks you up from your hotel in Agadir, head north along the amazing coastal road past historic palaces, surfing coves and spectacular views. When you arrive in Essaouira, your guide shows you around the city for the afternoon, offering advice to help you find just the sights you'd want to see.

During your tour, you can get a sense of the city's wealth of history and culture. Take a walk around the old fortifications and look out over the ocean from the old artillery platform on the casbah. At the Sidi-Mohammed-Ben-Abdallah museum, you can look at the exquisite collection of artwork and musical instruments from around the region.

For lunch, you can try one of the many little restaurants on the beach or in the bustling medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your hotel for the night is the Riad Al Madina, an elegant 19th-century house with a prime location in the shade of the city walls, and only a 650-foot (200 m) walk from the beach.

In the morning, you can explore the city at your leisure. Explore the souks that surround the clock tower to find some of Morocco's best craftsmen who fashion sandarac woodcrafts with practised precision, or visit the beautiful little port, accessible only through a single gate, to watch the fishing boats return for unloading at the end of the morning and try some freshly caught grilled fish.

Return to Agadir in the afternoon with some incredible new memories of this delightful world by the sea.
