We did 2 excursions, one in am and one in pm-Agadir and Medina. Avoided Marakesh due to long bus ride and we saw quite a bit!

If you take an excursion to Marrakech, be aware that it takes 3 to 3.5 hours each way travel time.

The souk in town is closed on Mondays. Don't pay for the $15 per person shuttle. Just hire a taxi for $30 for the day and let them take you on a private tour.

Not a typical Moroccan city, more of a Mediterranean vibe. The city was completely destroyed in 1960 due to an earthquake, the current city in a grid layout is situated a few kilometres from the port. The port area is very large and in my opinion not easy to walk on you own. There are plenty of taxi drivers on the dockside, we hired a driver for 6 hours at a cost of €70, very reasonable. The city's promenade is very well laid out, flat, well maintained and clean, there are various bars and restaurants along the northern end towards the southern end you will find resorts and hotel. The beach is very nice and was uncrowded on our visit. The old town is interesting in the fact that it is not at all touristy, we found a mosque and lovely zoo which was free to enter. We also explored the new marina area which is close to the port, as you would expect there are a few bars, restaurants and stores. The Souk and Bazar were interesting, the Souk is very large, on our visit is not crowded and we got around no problems. At the Bazar we had a chaperone who tried to hard sell everything we looked at, very annoying as it made us want to leave the store a lot quicker that we would have liked as there are some beautiful items here.
Either stay on board or do an excursion. We got the shuttle bus (which was a total farce) then taxi to the souk. Souk was an experience and glad I saw it. However, everyone we came across just tried to extort money out of us. Very dishonest people. Agadir is a dump, dirty and filthy place. Wouldn't eat here and wouldn't feel safe. Not spoke to one person on ship that had anything positive to say. It's ticked off my list of places to visit but I've no desire to come back to Morocco.
Been to rhis port a couple of times. The pprt is gery commercial and you cannot walk round it. Luckily, our cruise line (Saga) privide free shuttles for those who want to go into the town. The first two times we called there, we did jeep safaris which we loved and it showed a different side to the countryaayfrom the town. The last time we were there (2016) we did the folklore show, which included free mint tea and snacks. Show was amazing, especially the horsemen skills. Audience was also emcouraged to dance. We also did a short coacj tour of the city, including the hill fortress (experienced locals trying to sell us camels). We also got to see a newer part of the city which is all the hotels for tourists, this was quite pleasant. Not a place I would return to in a hurry, or if I do, stay on board and relax.
Took the tour of the city. Went to a folk village. Watched acrobats, horse riders, rode camels, watched snake charmer. Wow!!
