AGADIR, TAFRAOUT & TAROUDANT
(03 nights / 04 days)
Day 1: Agadir port – Taroudant
Meet and greet at Agadir port then transfer to Taroudant, a very beautiful city claimed to be “Marrakech’s Grandmother”. Taroudant looks like Marrakech but smaller than it. Unlike Marrakech, almost the entire city of Taroudant is surrounded with ramparts. In the 11th century, Taroudant was occupied by the Almoravid Dynasty. In the 16th century, the Saadian Dynasty used it as a capital of Morocco for a short period of time before they moved onwards to Marrakech. The city is known today for its local crafts, including jewellery and carpets. Overnight in Taroudant.
Day 2: Taroudant – Tafraout
After breakfast, we will enjoy a scenic journey to Tafraout, a wonderful Amazigh (Berber) town at the foothills of he Anti-Atlas Mountains. Tafraout is known for its peculiar mountain formations – big round cliffs in the little valley surrounding the town. On our journey through the ochre coloured landscapes, we will enjoy one panorama vista after another. The scenery is dominated by small typical Berber villages, fertile terrace landscapes and steep slopes. Overnight in Tafraout
Day 3: Tafraout – Agadir (city tour)
After breakfast, transfer to Agadir, a very amazing city and one of the top destinations in Africa. Agadir is located on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean and at foot of the Atlas Mountains. Agadir is a very modern city and one of the largest seaside resort in Africa. The city is well-known for its unusually mild year-round climate and it is one of the best places in the world for the snowbirds. The city tour of Agadir includes a stop at the hilltop ruins of the old Kasbah (also know as Agadir Oufella). The site has an exceptional view over the whole city. After the visit of the Kasbah, stop at the largest sardine fishing fleet in the world, located in the port of Agadir where traders haggle for fresh fish in the daily auctions, and marvel at the traditional craftsmanship used to build wooden fishing boats for hundreds of years. We will continue our tour to city centre to visit The Birds Valley. The valley is a small zoo with diffrent kinds of birds and and other animals. Complete the tour of Agadir with the visit of Souk El Had. The literary translation of Souk El Had is Sunday Market.
