After Breakfast and after 3 hours driving we will arrive in Essaouira in the Souss valley, and only there, the argan tree grows, from which argan oil is harvested. In town, the women’s cooperatives that run the sector market this renowned oil. Skin moisturizing, anti-aging: its properties have been proven. To familiarize yourself with another facet of the local crafts, visit Chbanate Street, accessible from the Bab Marrakech bastion, and its weaving workshops producing wool blankets that can either be ecru or brightly colored. Also, Kasbah’s Sqala, the old artillery platform of the medina’s maritime ramparts, the view over the port’s Sqala, the ocean coastline and the medina, a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site, is remarkable. At street level, in the souks that surround the Clock tower, some of Morocco’s best parquetry craftsmen fashion sandarac wood with ancestral precision. After lunch and visiting the city we will head back to Marrakech.
The team of ‘Marrakech Expedition’ wishes you happy holidays in Morocco.
Many thanks to Marrakech Expedition for giving us a lifetime experience! If you don’t have a lot of time in Marrakech, this two day one night camel trek is perfect for you. The two day trip was packed full of beautiful sights and experiences. Spending one night in the desert was a breath taking experience.
Ali, Hassan and Omar have been perfect! the trip was run very smooth, and communication with Ali was prompt and clear. Hassan and Omar were very helpful through out the journey. Special thanks to Hassan with his very informative explanation whenever we stop and we definitely have good laugh together!
This is a bustling place at night, so full of atmosphere and smells. There are African bands, storytellers, lots of food places and many many stalls with oranges piled high. We also had a caleche ride through the Jewish quarter ending in the square. So much more to see when the souk is quiet. A must do if in Marrakech.
My family and I enjoyed the tour with Marrakech Expedition 4×4. We visited Marocco from Marrakech to Sahara sleeping two night in the desert. Our driver Hassan was an excellent driver and he let us to see great desertic scenery.
