The first stop will be at an Argan cooperative, where professionals with a lot of experience with this product will talk in depth about its many benefits, the way it is made, and other information. The kernels of the argan tree, native to Morocco, are cold-pressed to extract argan oil, a vegetable oil. Argan oil is a staple in Moroccan cuisine and is often used for drizzling over couscous, tajine, or dipped with bread for breakfast. It's also a popular ingredient in cosmetics.

The well-known Argan Goat Tree will serve as the location of the next stop on the tour. Because goats climb and make their home on the Argan tree, this is an excellent location for taking photographs of goats in their natural habitat.

After around 3 hours of driving, the driver will suggest eateries where you can sample the cuisine of Essaouira. After lunch, you will have time to explore the city independently. As you stroll with your friends or family through the alleys, be awed by the Gnawa music as you pass from one gate to another. Learn more about art because this city is brimming with talented artists.

In the afternoon, walk along the beach and take pleasure in its beauty. In a moment, you will meet our driver, who will transport you back to Marrakech.
