The Paradise Valley, despite having become arid due to drought and despite being only a small area where you can swim, is suggestive and worth a visit to enjoy the surrounding landscape, relax in the water and refresh yourself with your feet soaking in the bar in the area with tables and chairs placed on the water. The experience in Timlaline of sandbording on the dunes that end in the Ocean was beautiful. My two children aged 10 and 12 and I had a great time (even if the ascents of the dunes after the descent take breath!). Our sandboarding master RASHID who was with us on the afternoon of 9 September 2022 was very good and very helpful. After the descents he made us visit the neighboring area, with views of the cliffs overlooking the ocean and with a mini excursion to a small canyon near the dunes. Therefore, this excursion is absolutely recommended.

We had a nice time on this tour with Younes who was friendly and talked passionately about not only Agadir but Morocco as a whole. It was an easy way for us to see a bit of the city while we stayed in nearby Taghazout and we had a nice afternoon. Note that the souk is closed on Monday so you will visit an alternative smaller market if you go then.

2 wonderful days, Zacharia (our driver and guide) greatly contributed to it. He knew how to take the time to explain, to immerse us in local history and traditions. In a word, “magical”.

The tour guide was super helpful and stopped at different places for us to find specific biscuits!

Super excursion with a beautiful setting super guide really nice experience
