Travelling around Eid-al Fitr Agadir-Essaouira-Marrakech

We will be due to leave Agadir on the 7th August to Essaouira for 2 nights, and then from Essaouira to Marrakech on the 9th. Will we be able to travel between these cities smoothly as I know it's Eid-al Fitr. Will there be buses as usual and will there be hoards of people trying to travel to get back to their families?

If you want to travel at specific times and days be sure to purchase your tickets as soon as possible. Lots of Moroccans travel around main holidays.

Thank you for your replies.

If in Essaouira on the 8th...is it likely that it will be very quiet with souks and the like being closed?

Hi,

It is a family time so shops may well be closed and town could be quieter than normal.
