Drive from the pier directly to Inezgane's visitor complex, where you will be welcomed by singers in keeping with Moroccan hospitality.

Moroccan pastries and mint tea are served under traditional Berber tents, as you enjoy a performance of the ever-popular belly dancing as well as Berber dances and Andalusian music.

Then, get ready for a rare treat -- a horse race run by horsemen in traditional costume, complete with the age-old tradition of rifles that are fired into the air at the end of the race. The race is deeply rooted in Moroccan culture as a symbol of manhood, courage, and hospitality.

Enjoy a short stop in Agadir's city center for some free time and optional shopping. The kasbah (fort) offers a panoramic view before you return to the port.
