What You Can Expect
Try several varieties of olives, nuts and other popular Moroccan snacks before heading to a poultry and beef market to watch locals haggle for meat. Bargaining is very much a way of life here and observing this tradition will give you deeper insight into the local culture.
Next, it’s time to visit a spice market and learn how Morocco became a spice trading center. Marvel at the myriad of colors and fragrances of spices such as saffron, cardamon, anise, cumin, paprika and turmeric, and learn how they’re used in Moroccan tagines and other dishes.
Tear yourself away from the marvelous array of spices and head into the souks, or open-air markets, to discover Morocco’s many traditional breads including the pan-fried msemen and crepe-like beghrir. Dare to try Moroccan delicacies such as cow hoof, sheep’s head or ghoulal, a snail soup.
Finally, after exploring the abundance of intriguing foods at Marrakech’s souks and markets, it’s time to eat! Settle down with your small group of fellow foodies to a traditional Moroccan dinner at a restaurant in the heart of Djemma El Fna as it reaches its daily crescendo of activity. Enjoy some of the best people-watching of your life as you delight in the complex flavors of your meal amid peddlers, monkeys and snake charmers.
Your 3.5-hour food tour of Morocco ends here, though the unique sights, smells and tastes of Marrakech are sure to stay with you.
We had a lovely time walking through the markets, tasting different foods... A great guide and a great time
Excellent tour with great food and a very knowledgable guide. Great to be safely guided through what otherwise is a very intimidating atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
Mustapha was a great tour guide and very knowledgable about the local food and customs. The pace wasn't too fast and we got water breaks when needed. He showed us and got us to try a wide variety of different foods from various areas which also gave us a good introduction to the market areas. We were given a choise of dinner at the end of the tour so that if you'd rather not try hte sheeps' head or cows hoof you could have something like couscous or a tagine instead.
Fantastic evening with Mustafa - went places would not have seen without a guide. Great fun and terrific value for money. One of the best tours I have done
The guide Mustafa was friendly and knowledgeable. He took us off the tourists route in to the old Medina where we ate among the local people. Everything we tasted was delicious!
Great food and experience el fna at night full of life
The tour gives quite a good insight into the Moroccan culture. It was only two of us on it which surprised me initially, but we received personalised service. Our guide was a lovely man Salem who demonstrated his wonderful drumming technique. The tour was based on eat as you go basis, whereby we were stopping at market stalls for some info on the product and then trying the food either sold or cooked at that same stall. It was really interesting since you didn't know what would be the next thing to try. I would say this tour is perfect for someone who wants to know more about food and varieties of food in Marrakech.
We had a wonderful guide to make this the best thing to do in Marrakech. Wonderful experience not to be missed. Too much food !
Very good tour, got to try a little bit of everything. The food was incredible.
Best thing we've done in Marrakech so far! You can't come to Morocco without experiencing the cuisine. Our guide was so helpful in navigating the labyrinthine streets to find the best of the best the city has to offer. Highly recommend!
