Armed with this ticket, take a trip to Essaouira, a lovely coastal locale, from Marrakesh. Get picked up from your hotel and enjoy a 2 hour 40 minutes drive to the city. The breathtaking view of the landscape will be worthy of your Instagram stories. Feel a sense of peace as you see the cattle grazing in the countryside until the vegetation gradually changes to argan trees. Stop by the Argan Oil Women Cooperative, to learn about how this much-prized oil is produced right in Morocco. Don’t forget to capture pictures of the famous argan tree that always has goats climbing onto its lower branches to munch on the berries. If you’re lucky then you may catch around 20 goats perched up on the branches and this surely makes up for a fascinating sight to behold. If you’d like to take a short walk then the beaches, which the city is so famous for, are perfect to do just that. A long promenade is along the shore and you can walk down its path, admiring the scenic views. Your tour ends as you admire the wonderful countryside views before arriving back at your hotel.
