Full description
Get picked up from your accommodation in Marrakech at 9 AM and reach the village of Imlil after a short 1-hour drive. Meet your local guide and his team who will walk you to the local family that will host you for your morning cooking class chez l’habitant. At the end of the day, you will know how to prepare an authentic Berber tajine with meat and fresh vegetables. After preparing the tajine, there will be a short break for other activities while the food is cooking in the stove. Choose from two options: Option 1 Enjoy the tranquillity of the place and immerse yourself into the Berber tea culture with your local family. Learn to prepare the typical Moroccan tea with plenty of fresh mountain herbs that you will personally pick from the garden. Option 2 Stretch your legs during a 1.5-hour trek along the Imlil valley to discover the Berber villages and enjoy the stunning panorama of the surrounding Atlas Mountains. After lunch, your driver will take you along the scenic route crossing the Kik Plateau, a rocky limestone outcropping with inspiring views of the region, ending at the Lalla Takerkoust, an artificial lake before heading back to your accommodation in Marrakech at around 5 PM.

Both the driver Mohamed and the guide Mustafá are great and make you feel very comfortable. Mustafá is a charm that bought us water all the time, invited us to a juice and gave us interesting conversation. The phenomenal cooking workshop, we felt at home cooking and they treated us phenomenally. Highly recommended.

Great experience. We had a private transfer from the square to the mountains with a breakfast stop along the way. Once in the mountains we were met by our friendly guide who took us shopping for ingredients then to a restaurant to make a tagine. While the food cooked, we took a walk to a lovely waterfall and had a visit to a Berber shop. Ate the tagine with bread and olives - great day out from Marrakech. Highly recommended

amazing trip. the driver was really good. we had the option of putting our own music in car but we opted for berber music. well air conditioned car and great for views. a few stops to argan oil and pottery shop. hassan did the cooking class in impil. the views on the rooftop terrace were phenomenal. hassan was a great host. accomodating to vegetarian option and staying longer on the terrace instead of the walk. the food was amazing. would highly recommend this trip.
