Our Story

About Us

Where it all started....

Twenty years ago, Youssef and Amanda met in Marrakech, and after living in the United States decided to move back to Morocco and call the “red city” home. Amanda’s first experience with Moroccan food was typical of a tourist visiting the country and it was only after eating the food of Youssef’s family home that she realized what was missing.

The company began as Marrakech Food Tours offering Moroccan food tours in the red city, but over time and due to increasing requests from guests it has expanded to include other destinations in Morocco. Each city and tour has an element that makes it unique and no two tours are the same.

Why Book with Us?

We know there are many choices when it comes to booking a food tour. If you want to have a truly immersive experience, then you’ve come to the right place.

We work tirelessly to hire and work with amazing guides while constantly innovating our offerings based on customer requests and feedback. 

Our tours aren’t just about the food – though it’s super important – we want our guests to feel like they’re out for a night with a friend. That’s why we keep our groups small – 8 people is generally our maximum (though we do work with larger groups)

Our guides share stories and experiences and welcome your questions. Get to know Morocco on a completely different level while sharing a meal. 

We don’t cut corners, we operate as a legal licensed operator in both Morocco and the United States, carry proper insurance, pay taxes where applicable, believe in supporting local vendors by paying fair wages and give guests the best experience possible in Morocco. 

We want you to walk away having had an amazing experience from start to finish and know you’ve supported our local communities!


From Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix to trusted travel companions like Fodor’s and Lonely Planet to newspaper articles and podcasts, our food tours have been featured time and again with glowing reviews for the amazing experiences we offer our clients.

Marrakesh is this beautiful, complicated, crazy, intense city... And it’s like the first day of school, you know? Don’t expect to know everything the first day. Just take the pressure off yourself a little bit, get a little acclimated. And the next thing you know, you can be happier than you’ve ever been."
