3Why you want to go from Taroudant to Agadir, then to Tafraoute and back to Agadir.? You can continue from Taroudant to Tafraoute on R109 and R106 directly. And then you can go to Agadir. You save also 100km travel if you take this route I suggest you.
It is to much travel anyway, days are short, travel slowly and you give you not much time to relaxing.

5..... Khamlia, I think Surf is using Public Transport, the route you suggest has little traffic.
Surf, days 25th. and 29th. using public transport makes this proposal slow and difficult. Have you worked out how to do it.
The only Public Bus crossing the Tiz-n-Test Pass (weather permitting) is Tes Kam Bus Departing Marrakesh at 23.00h via Ansi to Oulad Berhil where you take a Grand Taxi to Taroudannt. Otherwise do it in relay using Grand Taxis, slow with delays waiting for taxis to fill.
This sort of travel is better done with your own car/motorbike.

7..... you are right Khamlia.......... Surf mentions hiring a car, so this latest itinerary is possible, and the route you suggest is fantastic.
Surf, form Tafraoute via Tiznit towards the Coast you have two choices for seaside villages, Aglou Plage (Sidi-Moussa-d'Aglou) or a bit further away Mirhleft, consider an overnight, take the time to enjoy this wonderful stretch of the Atlantic Coast. This area is perfect for a car, you are in the Sous-Massa National Park.
