I could not be happier with this tour! It was amazing! You meet with Kawtar (whose English is great. I’m an American and as a native English speaker, it was super easy to communicate with her!) and go to the souks to shop. You do not need to carry cash for this as she will pay for the groceries from the souks with the fee you previously paid. From there you will go to the home of her aunt, Chef Khmisa. You will enjoy some mint tea, and then get cooking! This is actually super easy (even for mediocre cooks like me) but I think it is engaging even for talented chefs! You will work as a team with the small group you are a part of. The dishes were AMAZING and frankly better than any of the other restaurants we went to in Marrakech. Finally, you eat! The conversation was great, Khimsa and Kawtar are amazing hosts, and you get the recipes of the food you made after!! I will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Marrakech! A true 5 out of 5 stars!!!

The experience has been unbeatable, highly recommended. The treatment and good availability of the driver, the friendliness and charisma of the guide, the boat ride and the delicious food stand out.

It was amazing.. I had so much pleasure preparing the food and of course eating it was the highlight of it. Very tasty.

It exceeded my expectations. I imagined a very touristic and not very interesting activity but I spent a wonderful day

I tend to focus on educational experiences and this is a 10/10.
