What people are saying about Rabat

This was the epitome of all food tours. Mohammed was an excellent, fun and knowledgeable guide and he too us to the most amazing places. It is definitely a good idea to come with an empty stomach because there is A LOT OF FOOD. We did several stops at market stands, juice bars, pastry shops and the like and then had a full dinner of Moroccan Tajine and Couscous together. The group was small and there was enough time to chat and ask questions. We're vegetarians, but that wasn't a problem - Mohammend always provided good vegetarian options for us. After the tour we were so full we could barely walk. :-)

True cooking class with the attention to all the details, which contribute to the final taste of the meal. Very hospitable family, in the end you feel like you have been invited to friend’s house. One of the best impressions from the trip to Marocco. I have been to many cooking classes. as cooking is my passion- and this class stands out as one of the best ones. Must do in Marocco!

It was fun getting ingredients in the market and making everything from scratch. There was so much food and the experience was very authentic. We also got to find out a lot about Moroccan culture in general

We really enjoyed discovering Morocco through the imperial cities. Our driver and coordinator were very nice and we felt safe with them. We will keep fond memories of this stay!

Very excellent trip with competent and attentive guides listening to all our concerns. I warmly recommend guide Kalidh and driver Adnan
