4 hours 30 minutes
Your hotel in Agadir
Fall in love with this gem of a town, perfectly preserved within its magnificent ochre ramparts. Revel in the rich light and color and be intoxicated by spicy hot smells wafting on the breeze. Enjoy the famous friendliness of the resident Berbers.
Wander in the labyrinthine alleyways of the medina and browse the souks for terracotta, wrought iron, pottery, brass and copper, leather, carpets and rugs, and jewellery.
Taroudant is one of those places you won't want to leave!
For your Taroudant Sightseeing Tour from Agadir you will be picked up at 8:00am 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 11:50am you will board your vehicle for the return journey to Agadir.
You arrive in Agadir at around 12:30pm and will be dropped off back at your hotel.
