There’s a lot to see in the buzzing city of Agadir, on this tour things kick off with a coach ride up to the Agadir Kasbah, a Medieval hilltop fortress that was built by the Berbers in 1540. Because of an earthquake in 1960, all that remains today are the rose-blushed walls and the castle’s sturdy entrance, but the views are intact. From here, you’ll head off to see Fantasia, a Moroccan show designed for tourists featuring Berber Horsemen, tumblers, acrobats and musicians. Finally, you’ll head off to a souk where stalls creak under the weight of take-home temptations. From hand-woven rugs to baskets made from palms, ornate hookahs to gilt coffee pots, you can buy anything and everything here. As you make your way through the market, remember to haggle with the merchants to pick up some great bargains.
Surrounded by olive trees, palms and sweet-smelling citrus groves, the walled city of Taroudant is a real gem. On your drive there, keep an eye out for the tree-climbing goats that call this part of the world home. Upon arrival, step inside this 11th-century citadel and prepare to be hurled back in time. Resting peacefully within its ramparts, Taroudant has avoided time’s march, retaining its traditional look and feel. Four miles of chunky walls encircle the city, pierced by five impressive gateways. Within them lie Taroudant’s most famous attractions, the daily Berber market and the Arab souk. Browse the stalls and snap up anything and everything from exotic spices to leather goods.
Famous throughout the world for its colourful souks and vibrant bazaars, a visit to one should not be missed during your stay in Morocco. Stalls overflow with aromatic herbs and spices, copper trays and hookah pipes, pottery and carpets… the list is endless. You name it, they’ll probably sell it. One stop will be Kasbat Souss, a craft shop with set prices. You’ll then head for the largest souk market in southern Morocco for your opportunity to practise your bartering skills. Indulge in retail therapy to your heart’s content. Bring euros, sterling or even US dollars – it’s best to take small notes. Remember, the more you haggle, the better the deal, so don’t hold back!
