>  10 Day Moroccan Food Adventure

By popular request, I’ve put together longer, food-focused tours of Morocco along with parters at Roaming Camels Morocco. We’ve worked together to build great itineraries (there’s also a 7 day and 12 day option) that will create an amazing culinary adventure for you and your travel partners.

This is a private tour so if you’d rather experience the sites and tastes of Marrakech with your own private group instead of a tour bus of strangers it’s a great option to consider.

You can book this option any time of year! There are no set dates to work around because this is a private, custom tour!

Day One

Many international flights arrive to Casablanca so your tour will begin in Morocco’s largest city with a pick up at the airport. From here we’ll begin your tour! Travel to Rabat about one hour away for an overview of the capital city and sites.

After a mid afternoon lunch (on your own) it’s on to Meknes to see the sites of this city that was once the capital of Morocco during the reign of Moulay Ismail. For dinner learn how tajines are made at a restaurant owned by a local family.

Day Two

Sleep in a bit to wear off some jet lag, enjoy breakfast and then it’s on to Volubilis, home to ancient Roman ruins.

For lunch enjoy your meal with a beautiful terrace view at Dar Zerhoune in Moulay Idriss. In the afternoon you’ll then visit a local winery for a tasting (optional) or head back to Fez for time on your own to explore and have dinner.

Day Three

Discover Fez with the help of an English-speaking guide. Learn the history of this city while maneuvering the streets of the city and a stop for lunch.

Afterwards head to a local riad and restaurant where you’ll try your hand at making one of Fez’ most beloved dishes – the b’stilla! Dinner is included.

Day Four

Drive south from Fes and stop in to visit Ifrane, a popular Moroccan ski resort town. Then head south of the city and learn about nomads and their lifestyle. Share a picnic with a nomad family along the way for lunch, or stop in Midelt (weather depending). All meals during your travel day will be arranged and included.

Day Five

Today is your day to experience the Sahara. Travel the dunes, learn how to make bread in the sand. Yes, in the actual sand!

Then meet with some nomads for a musical experience before heading to your camp for the night amidst the dunes.

Some of the culinary highlights today include a date tasting and medfouna – the infamous Berber pizza as well as dinner at the campsite.

Your journey will continue onward to Ait ben Haddou, the infamous kasbah in Ouarzazate and Telouet Kasbah where we’ll also have lunch.

Why should I book this instead of a “less expensive” tour with a big agency?

Yes, these prices are more than some of the larger agencies offer however what you get in comparison is huge. With larger companies you’re on a group tour, often with 15+ people in a large bus. The quality of the places stayed is dependent on locations that can house a large number of people. You’re also just one of many on larger tours with no customization available.

With this tour it’s all about you!

We’ve charted out some of our favorite spots, places tourists don’t always go; working with local families and making sure YOU have the experience YOU want. Nearly all of your costs are upfront when you book this trip. Aside from a few meals and incidentals you don’t need to worry about anything else once you arrive. No hidden expenses. Before you leave you’ll know what is and isn’t included.
