    We had a great tour with Mohamed, as he shared his city with us, guiding us to the "must try" food experiences and explaining about the history and culture of this fascinating place. Mohamed is a sweet, smart, kind and funny guy, with a "world citizen" outlook, took great care of us and genuinely seemed to enjoy showing us around the city he clearly loves. One tip - do not eat before you go! We had only had a very light lunch, then the tour at 5pm, but were quickly full and felt bad for having to leave some of the delicious food. We only managed one of the incredible doughnuts between us and wish we could have found the stall again for another try! Thank you Mohamed, we wish you all the best for the future!

    Adil was awesome. Knowledgeable and fun to spend the evening with. He took us to some great places for food and we got to see a lot of the Medina and learned about Marrakech. Highly recommend to everyone!

    We had a perfect day with Mohamed. The tour was interesting and so much more than just about the food. We learnt a lot about the cultural in Marrakech and how the food was bought, prepared and eaten, We also were introduced to some wonderful places to eat and drink off the beaten track. Mohamed was super friendly and so well informed. Would highly recommend this tour and him.

    Adil is a very enthousiastic man with a lot to tell and show from his hometown Marrakech. You will hear very interesting fact about Marrakech while walking in the Medina. You will visit places that as a tourist you would just walk by. The TANJIA is one of the best dishes you will ever have!! The tasting is very worth your time!But as a piece of advice, go on an empty stomach!! And if you see something you want to buy in the way, Adil is very kind to help you with your purchase.

    We had a great cultural experience with Adil. He is friendly and enthusiastic, taking us to out of the way places to sample delicious delicacies and dishes. He also took us to a lovely herb and spice shop where the owner gave a descriptive demonstration of different oils, spices and herbs and what each represents. If you want to see, taste and feel the real Marrakech, this tour is a must!

    We loved having the food tour with Omar. He was friendly throughout, and we laughed the majority of the tour. We did a tour around lunch time with him, and sampled savory donuts, olives, tangia, mango juice, and had a demonstration at a Berber pharmacy. He seems to change each tour to have the best experience for the time and day, and only wish we were in Marrakech longer to explore the food in the City at night with him as our guide. This tour was definitely our favorite in Marrakech!

    We started at 11am and finished well after 5pm as we added a fascinating visit to the fairly new Museum of Moroccan Cuisine. The time just flew past as our guide, El Hassan, chatted with us as we walked, sharing his great knowledge of Morocco and Marrakech. We enjoyed tasting a wide selection of local specialities, tailored to our slightly weird dietary whims. This was a great day and we would highly recommend it and him.

    Our tour was with Jaafar and he was an excellent guide. Not only did he guide us through the tastes of Marrakesh but we found ourselves learning so much about the history of Morocco and the culture in the process. This tour was great because it extended beyond just food and was an awesome eye opener for our first visit to Morocco. Plus....all the delicious food was of course to die for! He took us to some great little nondescript shops that we would have otherwise never known were actually hidden gems. Thanks Jaafar!

    I highly recommend this tour and tour guide. Especially for your first time visit to the Medina. Mohamed was really a great guide and a good person. He introduced us to typical cuisine and really took care of us throughout the tour. We were never rushed and always felt comfortable. Old town Marrakesh can be quite an intimidating place so this is a perfect way to get your feet wet. My favorite part was the main meal of tanjia. Moroccan olives are really the best i have ever tasted. We were even given a good size container to take home for the night. We loved them. if you have a chance to book with Mohamed don't hesitate. It is worth it.
