The foodies shouldn’t miss this experience under any circumstances ! We tasted all kind of Moroccan street food that we didn’t see in the other Moroccan restaurants we’ve been to. We walked through the medina and made many stops to discover and eat some local delicacies including Moroccan pancakes filled with oignons and hot chili pepper, some kind of local dumplings filled with vegetables, pastries with almonds and honey, an avocado and nuts smoothie, fried sardins, some kind of fried doughnuts with jelly and last but not least a bowl of snails !! I don’t really eat meat but some girls with us had some kind of nems filled with beef and spinach. Fouad was very nice, he gave many details about the food and the social structure of Morocco.

Exceptional is the adjective that I would use to describe our experience yesterday on our walking tour with Hassan. He was a fantastic guide demonstrating his expansive knowledge of the culture of Morocco’s historical. He went above and beyond! He was prompt, personable, witty, and all-around a pleasure to spin the day with. It was a perfect way to start off our Morrocan vacation!

This is definitely the best way to visit Rabat. The guide was very kind and knowledgeable. We could really experience the city and see a lot of it in the same time.
