- Learn about the rich history and meaning of Moroccan food
- Taste the traditional spices and dishes of real Morocco
- Eat dinner in the unique atmosphere at Djemaa El-Fna
The links between culture, tradition and local eating will be explained and become more clear as we sample all varieties of Moroccan snacks and delights, stopping by stalls and stores that are not marked on the tourist map. Whether cured meats or fresh olives, your guide will know exactly where to find them, and will have an array of intriguing stories behind each morsel you consume. We will wander through the souks, trying traditional breads and learning about the traditional preservation of meat.
As is customary, no visit to Marrakech would be complete without wandering the famous spice markets, smelling and tasting the exotic offerings, and being enchanted by colours that are bright, bold and enticing. You will learn about the reason that spices are so important to the history and people of Morocco, as we move on to finish our day of sensory overload with a dinner back at the Heritage-listed Djemaa El-Fna. Here we will eat amidst a cloud of snake charmers and mischievous monkeys, with the atmosphere creating a completely unforgettable experience.

As a general guideline your shoulders, chest, and knees should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men or women), low-cut tops, and showing midriff is not recommended as it will restrict your entry into buildings of a religious nature and family homes. Covering these parts of your body will be considered as respectful amongst the locals.
Lightweight sleeved shirts, trousers and skirts are respectful, cover your body, and keep you cool in the heat.
