Today’s drive is truly stunning as we traverse the High Atlas Mountains on our way to Essaouira. A colourful fishing town situated within 15th century Portuguese fortifications where great beaches and surf beckon. Relax on the beach or alternatively explore the UNESCO-listed medina with its various souks and woodcarving workshops. Any city gate leads to the Medina, so you’re unlikely to get lost. The beach is in front of the Medina and there are plenty of cafés with terraces, both ideal for relaxing for a few hours. Blue doors and window frames abound as do artists shops – buy a carpet or Thuya wood carving or sit on the beach sipping a mint tea as the sun sets, an antidote to the hustle & bustle of the Imperial cities.

We take either our minivan or a Supratours public bus from Essaouira this morning and return to Marrakech to explore the final one of Morocco's four Imperial cities we visit on this tour. Marrakech is set against the snow-capped Atlas Mountains; Its great pride and landmark is the Koutoubia Tower, sister to the Tower of Hassan in Rabat and the Giralda Tower in Seville. It is said that after the third of these was completed, the sultan had the eyes of his architect put out, lest he should build another more beautiful tower elsewhere. No visit to the city is complete without a visit to the city’s UNESCO-listed medina & Djemâa-el-Fna, an extraordinary gathering and market place. The second day, leaves free to explore the city further, relax by the pool and / or enjoy some of the optional activities. 2 x Overnight Marrakech (Breakfast included).
