For your Taroudant Sightseeing Tour from Agadir you will be picked up at 0800h (08:00am) from your hotel.
You will set out for Taroudant in an air-conditioned vehicle with your guide. The excursion takes around 4 ½ hours and you will cover a distance of approximately 200 km (120 miles).
By the roadside you will see argan trees, with their gnarled and twisted trunks. This tree is typical of south-west Morocco and produces nuts that are the source of a rich and tasty oil.
You will probably see goats clambering along the knotted tree trunks and branches to feed on the leaves and fruit, and your vehicle will stop to let you take photos.
You will continue on to the beautiful walled city of Taroudant, former capital of the Saadian dynasty, often described as a 'scaled-down version of Marrakech'. But unlike Marrakech, almost the entire city is contained within the magnificent rich red ramparts. Lying close to the edge of the Sahara desert, Taroudant has a mainly Berber population who are known for their friendliness.
You will stop for photographs by the ramparts and then visit the Jnane Soussia restaurant for a refreshing cup of mint tea or a glass of soda.
Afterwards you have an hour to explore the medina (the maze of narrow streets near the town center) and visit the excellent souks. The Berber market in Taroudant sells vegetables and spices and also clothes and household goods, while the Arab souk specializes in handicrafts such as terracotta, wrought iron, pottery, brass and copper, leather, carpets and rugs, and jewellery.
At around 1150h (11:50am) you will board your vehicle for the return journey to Agadir.
You arrive in Agadir at around 1230h (12:30pm) and will be dropped off back at your hotel.
