- - The coastal city of Agadir is a popular wintertime stop for cruise ships, where the weather is often sunny and warm. Its beach and the fact that it enjoys at least three hundred days of sunshine per year also make it an extremely popular tourist resort.
The city of Agadir is also the regional capital of the Souss Valley and the main market for the abundant local agricultural produce.
Following a morning pick-up at the port of Agadir, where your ship is docked, we will explore the fishermens busy section of the port which is home to the largest sardine fishing fleet in the world and daily fresh fish auctions. Afterwards, we will drive up to Kasbah Agadir Oufella, a Medieval hilltop fortress that was built by the Berbers in the 16th. century and have breathtaking panoramic views from the Kasbah stronghold.
We will then head for one of the largest and most colourful markets in southern Morocco where stalls overflow with exotic fruits, vegetables, aromatic herbs and spices.
After lunch we will be crossing the city center as we drive along the Mohamed V Boulevard and then through the residential neighborhoods. On the return ride, your knowledgeable guide will point out various attractions and local landmarks such as Mohamed V Mosque, St. Ann's Church and the Beth El Synagogue before transferring you back to the port.
