Full description

Start your tour in Mellah with an introduction to the history of the city's market. Take a stroll through the market where stalls groan under the weight of fresh fruit, meat, poultry, and vegetables. Watch artisans make a local pastry and get a glimpse of how locals haggle in the market. Start experiencing new flavors and enjoy tastings of local foods such as sweet pastries or the traditional charcoal-baked tagine. Ask your local guide about the different types of tagines and the secrets of cooking this traditional Moroccan dish.

Receive a local recipe as a unique souvenir for you to take home. Before moving to your next stop, refresh with a delicious almond drink that locals adore. Head to the souks and explore some of the side streets to discover food stops often missed by travelers. Marvel at the vendor's stalls and be amazed by the colors and flavors that you can find there. Try some of the wares on offer including juicy olives and sweet dates. 

Continue to the maze-like streets of the Medina and see how a méchoui maker prepares the roasted whole lamb or sheep in a pit oven. Visit a hidden restaurant to try even more delicious foods such as tangia and kofte served with freshly baked bread.

Take in the smells of saffron, cumin, and fresh herbs as you enjoy exotic flavors. Sample three different types of salads made from fresh local ingredients. Enjoy a magnificent view from the rooftop of a cozy cafe. End your tour in Moroccan style and sip a glass of mint tea together with a local.

Admire the beautiful courtyard and the traditional Moroccan decorations such as rugs, mosaic lamps, and fountains. Learn about the tradition and habits of drinking tea, while listening to the local stories from your host.

What an incredible experience! Mohammed was the kindest and most thoughtful guide, always making sure we were having a great time and taking us to sample some absolutely amazing food. He was so knowledgeable about the City itself and took us to see some traditional cooking methods for lamb and bread. Everyone in the Medina knew Mohammed and it was so great to have a real ‘authentic’ experience. Other reviews are not lying when they say you should arrive at this tour hungry - there is a LOT of food!! Wonderful. Would definitely recommend.

We tried a lot of food in the market before going to a restaurant for a full meal. It was interesting and we were able to take photos of the food stalls without a problem while being in the company of the guide. It was also good to be taken through the market at night with a guide and see everything being sold.

Mohammed is a friendly and informative tour guide. We tasted a lot of different foods on the market, that we wouldn't have discovered otherwise. The other reviews say this, but come hungry. No late lunch beforehand! Our dinner ended up ending around 9, which was perfect, since the market is absolutely amazing at that time.
