Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I booked last minute trip to Esaouira night before, was afraid that they might not see my booking and leave me behind, but quite fast they provided pickup location by Email, guide called me in the morning before pick up and made sure I could go there. I am very grateful!
    Time schedule was well followed, guide and driver were very friendly, attentive and polite.
    Can recommend to book this trip!

    P.S. Esaouira is much more beautiful than pictures can shop, very good 1 day trip destination!

    This was my first time in Essaouira during the winter. Whenever there was no wind to kite sufr, Simo, Anas or Mehdi just taught me to surf instead. I never knew ho much fun surfing is until they took me out in the waves. Thank you guys, I'll be back :)

    Me and my brother are 2 beginners and we went for a group surf session. Our instructor, Karim, was amazing!! He took his time explaining everything and encouraged us the entire time! The staff in general was very friendly and the material was in great condition. We had a lot of time in the water and had a lot of time to surf.
    I would love to go here again!!

    Ismril is a wonderful surfing instructor! This was my first time taking the surfing class! With his experience and patience! I was able to learn to keep balance and control! And stood up and floated! He also went above and beyond took a lot of pictures and videos for me! I strongly recommend him as your surfing coach! I will return for sure next time!

    My first time surfing. I try it from about 12 noon to 2 pm. All the staff are very friendly and patient! Thanks to my coach, who explained it in detail and encouraged me all the time. The surf was hard at first, but eventually I was able to work on keeping my balance and maintaining some distance. I will definitely try it a second time later

    It was such a nice experience! We never surfed before and our instructor was so nice and gave us a lot of good input that we were able to stand on the board in no time.
    He was really supportive and uplifting.
    The area was also perfect as it was really empty and beautiful so we didnt feel like being watched which is nice especially when you’re failing in the beginning.
    Would definitely recommend!

    My father and I took a surflesson with Abderrahman and he was extremely helpful. His way of explaining things were for all levels understandable. Two hours were perfect for beginners because it’s really tiring. Can recommend him to anyone!

    We booked a surf class for a group of 14 people and had a fantastic time! From the fun warm up to surfing in the water, our two surf instructors made everyone feel motivated and excited and gave individual feedback and attention to every person in our group. Everyone caught a wave! Would highly recommend this school!

    Amazing!!! We arrived 15 mins late but the staff was brilliant and could accommodate for us. Our instructor Karim was awesome. He knew how to spot strengths and weak points on each person. He motivated me and helped me so that I did actually surf once!!! Not bad for my first-ever surfing experience!! Very happy with the service . Would definitely recommend.

    My girlfriend and I visited explora in August 2023. We booked through GetYourGuide, but I recommend going to their shop and researching all of the options because they have some incredible lessons on offer.

    We originally had booked a two hour kite surfing lesson, but upon realizing that it would be impossible to learn how to kitesurf in one day, Explora was very accommodating. They recommended other fun lessons we could participate in where we could get in the water quickly.

    They recommended Wing Foiling. Essaoui was our guide and he was amazing. He gave us a very informative, and easy to understand lesson on the beach, and then he took us to the water.

    He was encouraging, friendly, helpful and funny. He challenged us when we needed it, and made us feel safe and secure out in the ocean.

    I would HIGHLY recommend Explora Watersports for any activity, and you should request Essaoui if he’s available. He is fluent in French and his English is excellent as well!

    We will definitely come back next time we are in Essaouira.
