Full description
Start your culinary adventure by meeting your driver/guide at the allocated meeting point. After a short meet and greet, you will set-off on your tour, making stops at locations known by the locals for their produce and food. On this food tour, you will get to try mouthwatering Moroccan staples such as: • Moroccan coconut Macaroons (a favorite amongst the kids) • The original chicken & almond Pastilla, a savory pie reserved solely for celebrations such as weddings or family get-togethers • The finest local pastries such as Briwate and Ghriyba, in one of the city’s oldest bakeries • Traditional Harira soup, accompanied by dates and Chebbakiya (aka the honey desert rose). This appetizer is how most locals break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan • Babbouche (Moroccan snails), cooked slowly in an aromatic herbal-infused broth • Authentic mint tea & Morocco's most celebrated snacks: Msemmen (Moroccan pancakes), a delicious pan-fried dough, that you can try, the local way, with honey and cheese • Fakya, a variety mix of dried fruits and nuts that is carefully prepared and commonly shared among families and friends during celebrations • Signature olives of Morocco, which come in a rainbow of colors and flavors, from the greens with their creamy smooth texture to the reds tossed in parsley and cilantro Later in the evening, you will enjoy a sit down dinner in a local restaurant. Whilst at the restaurant, you will enjoy a meal consisting of a fresh Moroccan salad and a Tajine (many options available). The portions are generous, the food is wholesome and the Tajines are scrumptious! For dessert, you'll be offered the very popular creamy Raïb, an absolutely divine homemade yogurt. Bon appétit!

The guide was super attentive, our flight to Marrakesh was delayed and he waited for us without any problems, he took us to try several different foods, in the end there was a delicious dinner, I recommend it to anyone who wants to know the typical foods of the region.

This was an amazing food experience for my 1st day in Morocco. Yaya was very personable and did the tour from an authentic perspective, the flavors of his childhood that I could relate to from my own country. We navigated the famous market square, in many a low key spot you would not ordinarily seen. Jemaa el fna square is definitely sensory overload w/o a guide, and Yaya catered to the whole group. There were toddlers, and seniors on the tour and the pacing worked well, not just the walking but the food. We had over ten tastings before a delightful dinner away from the maddening crowd while still being in the center, and I didn't feel overwhelmed. Would highly recommend. He also catered to the vegans in the group and verified if anyone had food allergies.

Wow! Can’t recommend this tour enough- you get the full experience of Marrakech and then some; we ate extremely well, went to places we would’ve never otherwise seen (literally only could see on a guided tour), and had a great host in Yaya! I’d strongly recommend this tour over some others as you get to seemingly see the most and you get as much of whatever dish of food you enjoy most at every spot. Go hungry!
