Wander through the souks of Marrakesh sampling olives, dried fruits, nuts, and pastries on this evening tour of the bustling city. After a vibrant…
What people are saying about Souks
Youssef met us at the appointed time; he was punctual, very polite and made us feel at ease right away. The other people that were meant to turn up didn’t and so, we had a private tour. We wandered through the streets of Marrakesh, stopping to have some locally prepared doughnuts that were surprisingly different to anything we had tried before - really tasty and not sweetened, washed down with some mint tea. We continued trough the streets of the medina trying pastries, olives, locally baked bread and other delicacies on the way, learning about some of the history and tradition. We then sat down to some local soup and finally, our main meal; I tried the sheep’s head and my partner had a tangier. All the food was really nice, we spent time with locals and all a wonderful experience thanks to Youssef. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and we felt very safe in his company. Thanks again for a great experience. Tunde and Therese
Since our breakfast and transport took much longer than expected we arrived 30 mins too late at the meeting point. I had called about this and since we were not alone 'another cook' was arranged. Sanae was the best we could get! Very friendly, with humor and speaking English very well. We went shopping first after arriving at the roof terrace +/- 1hr later. There we started with Moroccan tea (with lots of sugar!) including an explanation of all the habits and ceremony that comes with it. After tea we started preparing our meals. 3 persons per Tajine, 9 in total. The meat (chicken) was already cut but everything else was 'sliced and diced' by us. Sanae kept talking and joking with us. Explaining about the herbs, local cuisine, etc. We made the main dish, a salad and a desert (orange cinnamon) which was all very tasty. I can recommend this workshop to anyone, it was a very nice activity.
Booked this tour for my girlfriend and I and it did not dissapoint. Omar our tour guide went above and beyond our expectations. He gave us a in depth history of the food we were tasting and was also great fun to be around. At the end of the night he helped us find a way back to our hotel and made sure we got a fair price on our tuk tuk back, which was very kind of him! One helpful tip for those thinking of booking, go on an empty stomach as you're provided with plenty of food. Thank you Omar once again for a memorable experience in Marrakech.
He navigated the souks with ease and made sure nobody got lost or left behind as the square and souks are rather chaotic which was very reassuring. It was such an authentic experience and loved every minute of it. Our tour ended up being 4 hours as we were all having such a great time. And Omar, the gentleman, even got us back to the taxi rank and put us in a taxi back to our hotel. Would definitely recommend this tour. Thanks again Omar, you were super!!
This was really a fantastic worthwhile tour. Our guide, I think she was called Adinka, was extremely knowledgable about everything we asked her, and gave us loads of other interesting facts besides the food, all about the Moroccan culture and history of Marrakech. We really enjoyed this 3 hour tour, and some very tasty titbits to eat too as well as the main meal. Five stars to her.
