We are so pleased we took this tour. The guide was very friendly, very knowledgeable, and took us to areas that were fascinating, that we would never have found on our own. We had samples of all kinds of food, that were really nice. This tour was very much an educational experience, learning how much the different kinds of food are rooted in the Islamic culture and calendar, and we very much enjoyed it. We would absolutely recommend it to others.

Food and Market Tour of Djemaa El Fna was a great way to get out and jump into the deep end of all the souks on our first night in Marrakech. Our guide, Mustafa, was very knowlegeable and thorough with his explanations and went out of his way to ensure that our experience was as expansive (and filling!!!) as possible. My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much--Mustafa deserves a raise!

We were the only 2 people doing this tour so received a very personal experience. Our guide was a most like able and knowledgable man who went far beyond our expectations in giving us a very rewarding experience. We understood the use of their spices and herbs and the history of them. We would certainly recommend our friends take this tour if visiting Marrakech

This was the best part of our visit to Marrakech! It was a peek inside the actual life of the residents of the old city, and it took us to the places we would have never known to look. If you want to get past the ordinary tourist show of Marrakech and see something real, this is the tour.

My best tour. My guide, Mustapha, spoke excellent English and was extremely knowledgeable. I learned about the markets, traditions, and cuisine of this country. He explained the tea ceremony and we sampled traditional food along the way.

We always book our trips with viator wherever we go. We are always impressed with the tours and the tour guide was first class. Nothing is too much trouble and he answered all our questions and taught us so much.We loved going off the beaten track and we got to try all the local dishes. We will continue to recommend viator to all our friwends and would always use them again.

Really interesting and excellent value. Our guide was very knowledgeable, showed us around the food markets, explaining various traditional foods and arranging for us to taste them. We would not have been able to do this alone.We ate right in the heart of the square and the atmosphere was amazing!

This tour was brilliant. We visited so many areas of the souks and got to taste many different things. The guide was interesting and informative and very enthusiastic about what he was talking about. The dinner in the middle of Djemma El Fna was a brilliant way to end the tour and something everyone should experience while in Marrakech. I would highly recommend this tour.

This is a very interesting tour to go on. Guide was excellent and full of knowledge.
Experience various markets and stalls. Ones perhaps you would not find easily yourself.
Learn about the spice world and the various cultures.
Sample such things as Olives, Fruit, Biscuits, Soup, Bread, Doughnuts etc. Of course you have to make some Mint Tea. Lovely ! Finish with some Tagine food if you are not already full up.
Overall a very interesting few hours to finish off the day. Go on this tour and you will not be disappointed.

I enjoyed this tour and would recommend it. I was a little disappointed not to learn more from the spice market but the visits to the communal bread oven, the cafe to sample some Moroccan 'doughnuts', the sweet pastry stall, more than made up for it. I didn't like the market much as I don't like to see live animals [chickens, rabbits] in cages waiting to be killed, but that's just the head in the sand Brit in me. Eating the square was fascinating. Our guide was really good and told us lots about what we were seeing and also about the tradtions of the food we were seeing and eating. All in all a very worthwhile experience and I recommend taking it early in your stay in Marrakech.

Very good, I think this tour depends on the guide and we were very lucky with Mustapha who was knowledgable and very entertaining. The venue however for dinner was dissapointing for us) being a cafe on the square. Others might be happy.However we had tasted so many things prior to that time we didnt need dinner! Recommended.

I had a really nice review written but it got lost when I had to login. Bah.

In review: good tour, good food, but falls short of other food tours around Europe. Specifically, not as much food, not very far off the beaten path (if at all), no local connections to the owners, and didn't seem very prepared as people got pushed out of the way to make room for us at the last minute instead of there being a reserved area at the shop or nearby as other tours have.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Overpriced for what we got. I thought we would taste exotic Marrakech items as advertised instead of approximately tiny tastes of about 10 different sweets, a bowl of non-descript soup and a hunk of beef!
