Marrakesh Tasting Trail

Marrakesh Tasting Trail, Morocco

Designed as a wonderful introduction to the tastes and smells of traditional Moroccan cuisine, your tour through the culinary offerings of Marrakesh’s Djema el Fna and the surrounding souqs is a lovely way to experience the city’s most famous landmark.

The tour takes place in the evening, starting at around 4.30pm as the square begins to come alive and the city’s street food sellers begin to set up shop. Taking in all aspects of the ingredients, which make up the traditional cuisine - from the famous fresh oranges and mint tea to tasting olives, Moroccan pastries and grilled meats - the trail also offers the opportunity to see how the locals cook, with a visit to a traditional communal bread oven.

The tour ends at a restaurant overlooking the square, where a tasting menu of traditional local cuisine will be available for you to enjoy.
