Full description

Start your tour in Mellah with an introduction to the history of the city's market. Take a stroll through the market where stalls groan under the weight of fresh fruit, meat, poultry, and vegetables. Watch artisans make a local pastry and get a glimpse of how locals haggle in the market. Start experiencing new flavors and enjoy tastings of local foods such as sweet pastries or the traditional charcoal-baked tagine. Ask your local guide about the different types of tagines and the secrets of cooking this traditional Moroccan dish.

Receive a local recipe as a unique souvenir for you to take home. Before moving to your next stop, refresh with a delicious almond drink that locals adore. Head to the souks and explore some of the side streets to discover food stops often missed by travelers. Marvel at the vendor's stalls and be amazed by the colors and flavors that you can find there. Try some of the wares on offer including juicy olives and sweet dates. 

Continue to the maze-like streets of the Medina and see how a méchoui maker prepares the roasted whole lamb or sheep in a pit oven. Visit a hidden restaurant to try even more delicious foods such as tangia and kofte served with freshly baked bread.

Take in the smells of saffron, cumin, and fresh herbs as you enjoy exotic flavors. Sample three different types of salads made from fresh local ingredients. Enjoy a magnificent view from the rooftop of a cozy cafe. End your tour in Moroccan style and sip a glass of mint tea together with a local.

Admire the beautiful courtyard and the traditional Moroccan decorations such as rugs, mosaic lamps, and fountains. Learn about the tradition and habits of drinking tea, while listening to the local stories from your host.

Absolutely amazing! We thought by reading the reviews that there will be a lot of food and this is absolutely true! You start of slowly with an olive tasting and then we go for sweets, pancakes, thee and nuts … much more. At the end a full full dinner with tajine, more tajine, more sweets etc.. Can’t say how much we loved it. Recommending if you want to go through the souk, taste all local products here and there and just simply discover the souk in the evening! Mohammed was the best! He gave us so much information about everything and this helps a lot just to feel comfortable in this new culture and discover the best products from here!

What a great tour. Mo was a wonderful tour guide, he was funny and very informative. He brought us around to try authentic street food. All of which delicious, he gave us bits of history lessons as well. If I could give more stars I would. 10/10 would recommend to a friend :)

Mohammed was such a great tour guide. He communicated well with us that he was a little late, which was fine because it’s an experience in itself trying to get through the Medina to meet him. We were a little late too due to people traffic lol. Be prepared for the crowds! I really liked the beef tangine that we ate at the end. The soup and Moroccan “sloppy Joe” were our group’s favorites. Mohammed explained the history and food very well. We’re convinced this man is a professor but does tours on the side haha - he knows just that much about everything! We also saw him at the Dar el Bacha museum days later giving a private tour. It was good seeing him, again! He is an open book and eager to share knowledge.
