“A taste of Marrakech..a tasty taste!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

I joined the Urban Adventure thanks to a friend's advice and I have to say, it is honestly mindblowing. You go to places you would never discover by yourself (ex. you see a real underground oven on the tour!) get insights on Moroccan culture from a real Berber! (Mustafa, the sweetest guide you will ever meet) and meet interesting people along the way. Don't get lunch as your tastings will be veryyyy fulfilling! Among them: harira soup, cooked lamb, moroccan pastries directly from Marrakech Medina...and more. A very very nice afternoon in Marrakech (the tour starts at 6 pm and finishes around 9:30 pm)..spiced by exotic flavours and great stories. Highly recommended!!

“Great tour”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

My husband and I had a food tour with our guide Mustafa, and it was amazing! We by touring the neighborhood with stops at local stores and markets. We ended the tour with great food with a great view. Mustafa is a great tour guide with knowledge of the culture and the neighborhood. A must do tour.

“Great way to spend a morning in Marrakech”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Having just completed an 18 day tour of Morocco, I must say that this cooking class was one of the highlights. Our guide Karima was fantastic! Friendly, welcoming and informative, she helped make the day a memorable one. We were met by Karima (on time) in the designated meeting place before heading out into the medina to purchase all the required ingredients. We got explanations of all the ingredients we were purchasing with a mini Arabic lesson thrown in there too. After the shopping was done, we made our way to a beautiful riad to start cooking! The menu of the day was a chicken & preserved lemon tagine and a beautifully simple moroccan salad. We were treated to a refreshing cup of mint tea while preparations were made and had a wonderful time chopping, mixing and cooking in a relaxed setting. But of course the highlight of the day was getting to eat our delicious creations. Would definitely recommend this tour to others.

“A cookery lesson with Karima”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

My husband and I have just returned from a fantastic morning of cookery with Karima.
She met us at the agreed place and made us feel welcome. We shopped together for our ingredients and she was very generous with information about anything we asked- she also told us some of the words to use for different ingredients. On arrival at the Riad we were given mint tea and taught how to make it. Karima also explained the culture behind the tea. We had a great time preparing our starter and main and then sat on the terrace until it was ready. Karima served us well and spent time with us afterwards to ensure we had all the recipes and understood everything. She then walked us back to a point from which we could get back to our riad.
Thanks Karima- we had a lovely time with you.

“Taste of the medina”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Last night we enjoyed a truly magnificent evening in the company of Mustafa, an erudite and fascinating/engaging tour guide, who spoke perfect English.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the medina and souks, and tasted many delicious and unusual things that we would neither have recognised nor had the confidence to try as first time visitors to Marrakech. The stories behind the food, the rituals, the details of preparation from foods prepared only by men, to black magic, to the spice/meat/fish markets to hidden public ovens, cooking pits and early evening mint tea with pastries (savoury & sweet) were truly memorable!

We were also able to talk and learn about aspects of Moroccan history, Muslim traditions and faith, as well as foods, and we particularly appreciated this chance for such open discourse and Mustafa's willingness to answer all our questions. He was a true Ambassador for Morocco!

The time simply flew by, we just can't recommend Mustafa's tour enough. It is an absolutely essential part of any trip to Marrakech- even if you are only stopping for one day. A sensual, colourful delight without any hassle.

We would like to add that having explained, from the outset, our dietary requirements (no almonds/brains/eyeballs etc) Mustafa was hugely accommodating and sensitive to our requests.

THANKS Mustafa! Shokran! Warren and Joanne
