The day trip was great, especially our German-speaking guide Salah was great. He showed us the city, had a lot of information and helped us negotiate in the Suck. Taroundant is worth seeing, we were on the Suck and in the museum and explored the city. The oasis of Tiout was also very beautiful, lunch was delicious. The journey is a little longer, but this is offset by the visit to an orange plantation and the tree goats. We were also able to ask Salah questions during the trip and learned a lot about Agadir and Morocco. It was a very nice tour and is absolutely recommended for couples, singles and families with children.

Beautiful day in Taroudant and the Tiout oasis, impeccable transport and Hassan our guide was very professional and very interesting. Just a small downside, the visit to Taroudant could be more cultural and less focused on shopping (souk, argan cooperative, even if it was very interesting) ´

Good activity, about 1h30 drive there and a little more on the way back. A coffee break at the entrance to Taroudant, more commercial than useful. Good meal at Tiout. Pleasant visits. Friendly guides and driver.

It was wonderful! Would do the trip again at any time, we saw a lot and in a short time.

Excellent tour guide, ultra-friendly and made us all feel at ease!
