Partimos por la mañana desde Marrakech hacia Essaouira (Los restos arqueológicos demuestran que el emplazamiento de Essaouira, había sido ocupado ya desde la Prehistoria. Esto es debido a que la isla de Mogador protege su bahía de las fuertes marejadas atlánticas que aquí se dan, proporcionando un puerto natural a sus habitantes. Fue un importante puerto cartaginés y en época de los romanos un centro de producción de tiro. Estuvo en manos portuguesas un corto período de tiempo en el siglo XVI y la ciudad actual no se construyó hasta el siglo XVIII a manos de Mohamed III. De la ciudad destaca su medina, Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO, un lugar mágico de callejuelas estrechas, donde destacan entre los numerosos productos de sus zocos, su maravillosa ebanistería, los productos de aceite de argán y su excelente pescado. Además, su tradición musical viene reflejada por el famoso festival de Gnawa, celebrado en este lugar todos los veranos). Comida en esa maravillosa cuidad yresto del día para visitarla. Por la tarde regreso hacia Marrakech . Fin de la excursión.
I am absolutely amazed with the treatment received by Africa Aventura during our stay in Morocco. Yunes has been not only a tour guide, but also a storyteller (he is an open book, you can talk with him of whatever you want to know), a waiter, a photographer, a mediator, a 24 hours personal assistant and a long etc. From the first day till the last one, he has accompanied us at every moment: In hotels: he has kept abreast of every detail, from reception, when he helped us to bring the luggage to the bedroom, to show us how to switch the air conditioned on, or even to give us towels at the swimming pool when we realized we had forgotten them. At meals: Yunes seated with us (we invited him to do so) like one more, but he was not relaxed like us because he was checking out that absolutely everything was perfect. If you needed something and the waiter was not close to asking for it, he stopped eating to bring you that thing. I remember when there were crepes to have for dessert and they were so delicious that I wanted to repeat. Then he gave me his. By the way, were couldn’t believe it when he took us to his own house where her mother cooked for us during the whole morning (the best cous-cous I have ever tried for sure). During transfers: Yunes came with us in our cars (we didn’t rent any) and he guided the route while explaining what the landscape offered. Also how people dressed, the differences between one looks and others, etc., etc. During activities: He organized everything too. He stayed even until the party in haimas reached his end just to make sure everything was okay (actually he was really tired because he wakes up at 4:30am to pray and then he never stops, but even that, he is always the last one lying down). At the time of purchases: Yunes took us to very good places, not only for the quality, but also taking in to account to whom the money was destined. To give an example, we saw many scarves shops, but he recommended us to buy them to a woman and her daughters, who started a kind of project to help the women involved. In definitely, Yunes has been the most incredible trip partner (I cannot say guide, it would not be fair) I have ever known. And now, I am sure I can say that a new friend has come into my life. Thank you Yunes, this trip without you wouldn’t be absolutely the same… Don’t ever change! You’re incredible!
We visited Morocco last year and me with one of the representatives of Africa Adventures Yunes by chance. He offered to help us and we were a bit reluctant at first. I must say I am so glad that we took up his offer as a guide. He was brilliant, he took us to see places we would never have gone to in Morocco. I would highly recommend him.
Hola Yunes, Soy Anabel, la profesora de Murcia, amiga de Alba y Kco, que estuvo hace poco en Marruecos. He de decirte que ha sido un viaje inolvidable y que tu país me ha encantado.Después del desierto y de despedirnos de ti, los ánimos estaban un poco bajos, pero nos encantó también la zona de las cascadas de Ouzoud, Volubilis y Marrakech. Aunque ya sabes que el desierto es lo mejor. Gracias por aquellos días tan maravillosos. Sucran por todo, amigo. Juan y yo te estamos muy agradecidos por todo. Un saludo,
Yunes and Moha were extremely nice and flexible, planning a three day trip for us just as we wanted. They are very friendly and helpful, making as always feel welcome and comfortable. All places we visited were beautiful. We really enjoyed ourselves! We recommend Africa Aventura and would be happy to travel with them again.
