Day 1: Agadir to Ouarzazate via Ait Ben Haddou

The beginning of your journey will take place in Agadir, a busy city located on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. This city is famous for its stunning beaches and lively markets.

In the evening, you will have the opportunity to indulge in authentic Moroccan food, which is a great way to cap off a day that was packed with exciting experiences and cultural immersion.
