Full description
Morocco is known for its bold and flavorful cuisine, and what better place to discover it than the bustling city of Marrakech? Kick off this delicious Marrakech food tour at the legendary Djemma El Fnaa square, home to almost a millennium of trading, bargaining, eating, and mingling. You’ll feel the history, tradition, and culture instantly as you wander off into the cozy narrow streets branching off from the square, stopping along the way to explore some hidden local shops to taste a few of the many versions of olives, nuts and other typical Moroccan snacks. From there, head to one of the most popular sections of the city – the spice market! Take in the fragrant aromas of cumin, saffron, ginger, pepper, and turmeric as you wander through the colorful market, and then continue your Moroccan food odyssey through the souks, where you'll discover the many traditional breads, and perhaps try a cow hoof or sheep’s head along the way. After seeing all the fresh ingredients of the souks and markets, enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner amid the bustling World Heritage-listed Djemma El Fnaa at its peak, surrounded by locals, snakes and monkeys – an atmosphere that's hard to beat.

Meeting point

Out front of Café France in Djemma El Fnaa. As you walk into Djemma El Fnaa through the main entrance, this is a three-story café on the right side of the square. All through Djemma El Fnaa there are fake guides who will try and convince you to do a tour with them, so please make sure that you find the office guide who will be holding an Urban Adventure sign or badge and waiting for you in front of the café.

Important information

Know before you go

  • Dress Standard:
  • While Morocco can be considered a liberal Muslim country, as many Moroccan women do not wear headscarves, it is still very conservative by standards you may be accustomed to at home. Thus you should dress accordingly, and as a general guideline, shoulders, cleavage, and knees should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men and women), low-cut tops, and showing your midriff is not recommended as it will restrict your entry into buildings of a religious nature and family homes, as it is considered disrespectful to the local culture.
  • Long, light-colored, lightweight, long-sleeved shirts, trousers, and long skirts are respectful. They’ll cover your body, keep you cool in the heat, and protect you from the harsh sun.
  • As this is an evening tour, please bring a jumper in case it gets cool after dark.
  • Maximum group size is 12 people.

A very thorough food tour given by a very knowledgeable guide. We not only learned about the food but also a good deal about Marrakech and the culture of Morocco. As to the food, it was exotic and delicious nothing too crazy. There were vegetarians in our group who were easily accommodated. Overall a terrific tour. Thank you Omar!

Really enjoyed this tour. We did this tour on our first evening in Marrakech; it was a good introduction to the City. Omar, our guide, took us all over the city, to parts we would never have gone and to places we just wouldn't have stopped at. He was very interesting and told us lots about the food of Morrocco, but also about customs and just general facts about Morrocan life. He was very encouraging and even got my wife to try a snail; she won't be rushing back for more. Would highly recommend.

Delicious food and very interesting tour through some of the souks. Our young guide, who also was the second manager of a riad, learned us a lot about marrocan food traditions and showed us his favourite shops and food. Meet up hungry. Do not be afraid. Everything taste good. Really a good experience.
