My boyfriend and I traveled from Switzerland and Spain to Marrakech, Morocco; and of all the natural and architctural wonders we enjoyed along our vacation - our Urban Adventure with Karima was by far our favourite. She was extremely punctual meeting us in the medina outside Cafe France on a Monday morning, lucky us we were the only two in our class! Karima took us through the souks, which we had already explored, but this time with her local instincts. She took us to buy the ingredients for our Moroccan dishes, while teaching us Arabic words along the way. She brought us back to a beautiful ryad, which we decided we would stay at during our next visit to Morocco! We felt right at home cooking in Karima's kitchen, and she encouraged us to explore the grounds while we waited for our delicious tagine chicken. The Moroccan mint tea and salad were to die for!

Karima was so lovely and hospitable, when we inquired about the cost of certain pottery items, she offered to bring us back into the souk to help us shop! She brought us to an incredible shop stacked from floor to ceiling with pottery. After we picked our items, she was so kind as to barter for us and get us a great deal on some of the best quality pottery you can get in Marrakech! Karima is such a sweetheart, and I would encourage anyone and EVERYONE to jump on this experience with her. We honestly feel as though we had made a new friend!

This was a great way to experience the Medina, square, food and culture of Marrakech.
Mustafa was an excellent guide. I wished I hadn't eaten a late lunch before doing this tour as I wasn't able to eat all that was on offer. Would recommend to anyone who has 3 and 1/2 hours free one evening in Marrakech!

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!!

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.

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.
