Your hotel in Agadir
Learn the story of the city, and how the modern resort, with its wide streets and minimalist houses, rose from the devastation wrought by a killer earthquake. See the evocative ruins of the old fortress and the moving memorial to those who perished in the tragedy.
Visit the lively souk and see how Berber traditions still thrive in the contemporary setting of the new town.
Stop at the seafront to admire the great sweep of white sands washed by the Atlantic that have made Agadir such a glorious holiday destination.
This excursion is the perfect introduction to the many charms of Agadir.
For your Discover Agadir Sightseeing Tour you will be picked up at 10:00am from your hotel in Agadir.
You will set out in an air-conditioned vehicle with your guide to explore the coastal resort of Agadir. The excursion takes around 2 ½ hours and you will cover a distance of approximately 20km (12 miles). You will only walk about 0.5km (a quarter of a mile) in total on this tour.
Agadir is very different from any other city in Morocco. The new town, with its wide, straight streets and low minimalist houses, was built after the earthquake of 1960 that destroyed the old town and killed 15,000 people.
To see one of the few remaining traces of old Agadir, you will visit the Kasbah, a former 16th century fortress. Only a small part survived the devastating earthquake – just an outline of walls and an entrance arch. But from the top you will have stupendous views of the beach, ocean and the busy port.
You will see the evocative Talborjt mosque, you will have around 10 minutes here for photographs.
Back in the new city of Agadir, you will make a 15-minute visit to the souk, housed in a purpose-built market and full of herbs, spices, ceramics, carved wooden objects, jewellery, leather-work and much more. (Please note that the souk is closed on Mondays.)
Next you will make your way to the Boulevard of the Cornice to view the glorious bay with its 9km (5.4 miles) of white sand washed by the Atlantic.
At the end of your Agadir excursion, you will be dropped off back at your hotel.
Good guide but had to call them as they had forgotten to pick me up at 10 as agreed. Eventually picked up at 10.30...
This was an excellent way to get to know Agadir. I would recommend going on the trip in the first few days of your holiday. It lasts about 21/2 hours but you get shown everywhere...
The trip was exactly as described. Unfortunately, we were not able to do it on the day we were booked but were contacted in advance to be informed of an alternative date....
