Looking for adventures? Travel to Toubkal Massif, a national park full of craggy mountain peaks and deep valleys. Toubkal contains the highest summits in the Atlas chain of Mountains. Roads teem with peasants, domestic animals, scooters and Lorries belching diesel fumes. You will exit at the small village of Imlil, the starting point for exploring the Toubkal area.
After a good night sleep, we recommend to take the ‘taste of Marrakech’ tour. This Marrakech food tour will get you up close and personal with the food scene in this exciting city. Wander through the souks, sampling olives, dried fruits, nuts, pastries, and other Moroccan specialties.

Now you have had a feel of cooking scene, get ready for the ultimate tajine experience on this one of a kind tour in Marrakech. From market to plate, you’ll learn how to whip up a tajine from scratch, using ingredients from the famous Marrakech souks. The best part of it all? You get to devour your tajine after you’ve made it!
We will start in Djemaa El-Fna, the centre of all the action in Marrakech before heading into the souks. Here your local host will teach you the Arabic words for all the ingredients you’ll need to cook your tasty tajine, giving you insider knowledge for your shopping experience. You’ll learn all about the key ingredients and spices needed to make it as authentic as possible, the perfect skill to take home from your Marrakech travel experience.
The class takes place in the beautiful setting of a traditional Moroccan riad (house), where you will meet the family and hear about medina life for a Marrakech family. Finally, it’s time to eat. You’ll get to savour the fruits of your labour and the food will taste even better as you’ve made it with your own two hands!
