“This class was great! We loved having the full experience- shopping for the ingredients, learning to make traditional Moroccan tea, learning to make a tajine, and of course getting to eat our work at the end!”

“We had a lovely morning shopping and preparing our tagines. My husband is a vegetarian so we made both a vege and a chicken tagine both of which were delicious. It was very casual and a lovely experience.”

“Overall a great experience. As it was my birthday and another guest's birthday Karima had her staff ran out and brought back one of most delicious birthday cakes. I want to thank Karima and her lovely young staff (I can't remember her name) for the highlight of my 50th Birthday Tour of Morocco. Thank you for a magical afternoon. My one suggestions is that they printed and handed out the recipes at the end or beginning of the class. It would make a wonderful souvenir of that day. I can't wait to make Chicken Tagine for my friends.”
Good to know Dress standard:
Morocco is considered by many to be a liberal Muslim country. Many Moroccan women do not wear headscarves, for example, but you may find that Morocco is very conservative compared to what you’re used to at home, so you should dress accordingly.

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.

Child Policy: This is a child-friendly tour. Children between the ages of 6 and 11 inclusively are permitted on this tour at the rate listed above. Please select ‘child’ above when booking. Children under the age of 6 are permitted to join this tour free of charge. Please inform us at the time of booking if you’ll be bringing a child under the age of 6.
