Full description
Morocco is known for its bold and flavorful cuisine, and what better place to discover it than the bustling city of Marrakech? Kick off this delicious Marrakech food tour at the legendary Djemma El Fnaa square, home to almost a millennium of trading, bargaining, eating, and mingling. You’ll feel the history, tradition, and culture instantly as you wander off into the cozy narrow streets branching off from the square, stopping along the way to explore some hidden local shops to taste a few of the many versions of olives, nuts and other typical Moroccan snacks. From there, head to one of the most popular sections of the city – the spice market! Take in the fragrant aromas of cumin, saffron, ginger, pepper, and turmeric as you wander through the colorful market, and then continue your Moroccan food odyssey through the souks, where you'll discover the many traditional breads, and perhaps try a cow hoof or sheep’s head along the way. After seeing all the fresh ingredients of the souks and markets, enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner amid the bustling World Heritage-listed Djemma El Fnaa at its peak, surrounded by locals, snakes and monkeys – an atmosphere that's hard to beat.

Know before you go

  • This tour is organized and led by the world's largest travel B-Corp certified company. B-Corp Certification measures a company’s social and environmental impacts and responsible tourism practices
  • While Morocco is seen as a liberal Muslim country, as many Moroccan women do not wear headscarves, it is still very conservative by standards you may be accustomed to at home. Please dress accordingly. As a general guideline, shoulders, cleavage, and knees should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men and women), low-cut tops, and showing your midriff is not recommended as it will restrict your entry into buildings of a religious nature and family homes, as it is considered disrespectful to the local culture. Long, light-colored, lightweight, long-sleeved shirts, trousers, and long skirts are respectful. They’ll cover your body, keep you cool in the heat, and protect you from the harsh sun.
  • Please bring a jumper in case it gets cool after dark.
  • Maximum group size is 12 people.

We really enjoyed this tour and our guide was excellent. We did our tour on the first day of our visit to Morocco and it was a great way to get acclimated to the city and its food. The tour really helped us enjoy the rest of our stay and the food that we experienced.

One of the best food tours we’ve done. There were so many dishes to try that we lost count and it wasn’t just street food we saw either. You get to see the communal ovens used by locals for years. Our guide was so nice, really engaging and funny ‘innit’. We’d recommend this tour to anyone.
