Experience Marrakech: Food and Market Tour of Djemaa El Fna Including Traditional Dinner

Sample local specialities on your Marrakech food walking tour

A must-do for foodies! Get caught up in the sensory overload of Marrakech as you wander its most famous square with a guide who'll help you find the hidden gems amid the madness. Sample fascinating local specialties before finishing the evening with a delicious traditional dinner.

Start your Moroccan culinary adventure when you meet your knowledgeable guide at Djemaa El Fna, the main square of Marrakech’s medina, in the early evening.

Hear a lowdown of what’s ahead and take time to absorb the dizzying square — declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001. In the evenings, Djemaa El Fna takes on a livelier persona as it fills with prettily lit hot food stands and crowds who come here for their nightly strolls and snacks.

Wander around the square, and then explore some of the side streets to discover food stops often missed by visitors. Try some of the wares on offer, including nuts, olives and other specialities, and continue to a poultry and beef market to watch the locals barter for meat. Haggling is integral to Moroccan life and seeing the deals being made provides a fascinating insight into local culture.

Delve into a spice market as your guide recounts how Morocco was an important spice-trading center, and view the rainbow-colored products such as saffron, paprika, cardamon, anise and turmeric. Learn how they’re used to enliven tagines and other staples, and stroll on to a bustling souk.

Pause to sample typical Moroccan breads such as msemen and beghrir — fluffy Berber pancakes — and if you wish, try more challenging delicacies such as sheep’s head, cow’s hoof or snail soup, known as ghoulal.

Lastly, visit a restaurant on Djemma El Fna just as the evening reaches its height. Enjoy a traditional Moroccan meal with your group as you take in the square with its peddlers, snake charmers and entertainers.

Your 3.5-hour food tour ends after your meal. Leave your guide and either return to your hotel or continue your evening out independently.

This tour was absolutely exceptional! our tour guide Mustapha was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. As we walked from stop to stop he told us about the history of the area we were in, and was able to answer virtually any question we had. Lastly, but certainly not least, you get A LOT of food!!! It is not like other food tours I've been on where they give you small bites at each stop, they give you full servings on this tour. I highly recommend letting your guide know you will share your portion with someone you are traveling with, Only because I felt bad leaving behind picked over food. But all in all great tour, I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to try Moroccan food where Moroccans eat!

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.

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!

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.
