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 making 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, mosaics lamps, and fountains. Learn about the tradition and habits of drinking tea, while listening to the local stories from your host.

We had a wonderful tour with Rachid and were able to see many things that we would never have seen as a tourist, for example the fireplace of a hammam, where the Tanjias are cooked. Rachid was an excellent guide who explained everything in the best possible English. We were out for about 3 hours and had a lot of different stops. The conclusion was a dinner on a roof terrace at Jama El'Fna. The value for money for the tour and all of the food is outstanding. We made the booking 2 days before the tour and everything went smoothly.

Didn’t feel like we got the best stalls. More like just random ones along the way. Maybe he hand picked them before, but we never got the impression they were the standout vendors that we HAD to try. Also we paid at least 5 times more than if we had just tried all these stalls on our own. Maybe the guide picked out ones he knew were safe? That’s the value in the tour.

Went to 4 different stops and had plenty of local food to try. Guide was really good about explaining how the food was prepared and was really passionate. Highly recommend and make sure to come on an empty stomach. Also note the meeting point is in front of café de France! We couldn’t find the group and had to call for them to come back for us.
