Agadir, Morocco-port

Located along North Africa's Atlantic coastline in the shadow of the Atlas Mountains, Agadir was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1961 demolished most of the historic Portuguese, Arab and French colonial structures. Modern Agadir is a posh, upscale resort offering delicious sun-drenched days and activities from tennis, horseback riding and golf to stretching out on a golden sand beach. Visitors looking for a memento can bargain in the colorful souks. Dining options range from traditional Moroccan dishes to French and International cuisine. Excursions can take you to ageless Berber villages, or you can indulge the senses in the scenic Souss Valley and the High Atlas.

Tour Code: AGA-001

Your tour begins with a quick immersion into Moroccan culture by traveling along a scenic route that ascends to the earthen ruins of the ancient Kasbah. While little remains of this once bustling and prosperous sight, its vantage point high atop a hill overlooking the city offers some amazing panoramic views of modern Agadir with its wide main avenues, the commercial port where your ship can be seen and the wonderful sandy beaches of the surrounding bay. Stretching out before you are also vistas of the verdant Souss Valley, the distant Anti Atlas mountains and the stark savagery of the Tichka Plateau. Plenty of time will be allowed for photos and exploring the area before heading back into the city.

Arriving in this busy suburb of Agadir that was once a conglomeration of Berber and Jewish hamlets, you'll travel through Agadir's main streets en route to the Agadir Ethnographic Museum where you will stop for a visit. One of the best features of the museum is its unique collection of traditional Berber jewelery. Afterwards, you'll drive to Birds Valley, a living ornithological museum that houses the main migratory birds of the region and also has a small zoo with wild goats, lamas and monkeys.

Your final stop before returning to the pier will be at the bustling Bab El Had Souk. Known as the Sunday Market, this highly popular and colorful market place has an amazing array of goods for sale. Enjoy a guided tour before being afforded some free time to stroll the alleyways, searching for souvenirs such as spices, leather goods, clothing or a Thuja wood box - the same rare and sacred wood mentioned by St. John in the Book of Revelations.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 1/2 hours of walking over both even and uneven surfaces and there are a significant number of steps to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Lightweight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The Souk in Agadir is closed on Mondays and will be substitued with a visit & free time at the modern Kasbat Souss.
