Wow! This tour was fantastic, what a great introduction to Marrakech food and culture. Our guide Youssef was friendly, knowledgeable and lots of fun. Do NOT eat before going on this tour - so much beautiful food to try. By the end of the evening we felt like locals! There was plenty of time afterwards to explore the markets and shops.
Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and this was a great way to orient yourself in Djemaa El Fna. Learned about the history of Moroccan food, with sweet and savory bites, some fresh fruit, roasted lamb and of course, a delicious dinner. Highly recommend, especially if you plan to spend a few days in Marrakech.
The five of us were so glad we booked this tour. Certainly one of our highlights from our Morocco vacation. Yusuf, our guide, was incredible. He has a real passion for his country,it's traditions and it's amazing cuisine. We tried eight different things on our 31/2 hour tour inside and outside the historic Medina. Put it on your list and do it...we loved it and you will too.
Abdul was excellent. Ask for him. Tons of delicious food - save some room. Only one awkward shopping stop at a spice store we did tell Abdul ahead of time we did not want to go to any carpet/other stores. Trip start is difficult - hard to find guide in craziness of the square. He was standing across the entrance from Cafe France and did indeed have a lanyard was a small ID badge.
the guide from Urban Adventures was great. he gave a lot of local insights and pointed to many hidden gems in the souk. you need to empty your stomach before joining this tour. there was so much food to test at every stop. if you eat gluten-free, don't like sweet stuff and are vegan, do not choose this tour. Moroccans eat a lot and I mean a lot of wheat bread, sugar its sugar cubes at the tea house are very intimidating and heavy meat especially lambs. the only healthy stop was probably the olives shop!
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!
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!
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!
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 met our guide at café france at the djema el fna,he then took us on wonderfull tour of the market and area around,the colours of the spices,the artristy of the woodwork,metal ,pottery ,was just simply astounding.we stopped at different food stalls to taste many types of olives,pastries,soups and finally finished off with dinner .our guide was very knowledgeable helpful and helped us to buy some spices ,teapot and a tajgine,and then walked us back to our riad ,which wasn't a part of our tour.
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

Great experience. Small group. Lottsa local food and drink along the way. Great guide. All ended in a dinner experience in the square that you'll never forget.
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.
