I', planning to take a detour to Taroudant from Agadir. Any advice welcome
I would definitely recommend visiting Taroudant whilst in Agadir. It is basically an older and smaller version of the old town in Marrakech, and if you don't have a chance to visit Marrakech, then Taroudant is a great place to see some traditional Moroccan architecture, especially since Agadir was completely rebuilt following an earthquake. I would recommend visiting the Argan Oil museum in Taroudant and there is a nice garden hotel there (Salam Palais hotel).
