Experience Morocco: Visit a Souq and Cook a Tagine in Marrakech

Marrakech, Morocco

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

My friend and I took this cooking class in October of 2013. I was reluctant to book it, as it was new on Viator and there were no prior reviews. I am soooo glad, however, that I went with my gut and booked it. This class was probably the highlight of our vacation in Morocco!

In all fairness, there was a slight glitch with the local company confirming our hotel pickup. I included our hotel information in the booking, but the instructions on the voucher said that we needed to contact the company to confirm our pickup time. I contacted the company on multiple occasions, and no one returned any of my emails. Because the company never confirmed our pickup, my friend and I met in their central “meeting spot.” As it turns out, though, they had been waiting for us at our hotel while we were waiting for them in the meeting spot. Slight hiccup! However, other than that, the class was very well executed.

There were four people in our class that day, and our instructor, Karina, was absolutely phenomenal. Once we all finally met up, we went shopping for ingredients in the market. Karina taught us how to say certain words in Arabic, and we had a great time walking through the market and seeing how locals interact with each other. When we arrived at the Riad, we were served mint tea while Karina gathered all of the ingredients for our lunch. We first made individual tagine chickens. While the tagines were cooking we made a Moroccan salad. Both dishes were delicious and inspired my friend and I to purchase our own tagines to use back in the States. Karina was a great instructor and very patient. At the conclusion, she provided us with all of the recipes and walked us back to the main square.

I would definitely recommend this class to anyone visiting the area.

Wild Wicklow Tour including Glendalough from Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This tour was the highlight of our trip! The driver-guide was amazingly professional, knowledgeable, and humorous! Our driver-guide kept us entertained and engaged the entire time. We even had a bus sing-a-long! The Wicklow Mountains are absolutely gorgeous and Glendalough is a nature-lover's dream. If you only have time for one day trip, this tour is a must! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Skip the Line: Guinness Storehouse Entrance Ticket

Dublin, Ireland

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We had a great time at the Storehouse. We learned a lot about the history of Guinness and after the tour we went to the Gravity Bar to enjoy our complimentary pint of Guinness while enjoying the Dublin skyline. We arrived at the Guinness Storehouse at approximately 1100 am on a Friday, and there was no one in line. From what I understand, however, it does get pretty crowded so buying this Skip-the-Line ticket would save a lot of time.
