Join us on a private tour which takes you far from the touristy restaurants, shops and traps around Marrakech.
We will pick you up from your accommodation in Marrakech at 7:00 am for a two and a half hour journey to Agadir by highway. We will stop to take pictures in Agadir Oufella, the highest panoramic view over the city of Agadir. Stop at the local market to select fresh ingredients for the Tagine, which will be made locally at a Berber house above an open fire. Afterwards, we will drive for for 40 minutes, park the car and walk for 10 minutes to reach an incredible oasis, deep in the Atlas Mountains, called “Paradise.”
In the morning, we will enjoy a tasty mint tea with fresh bread called tafernout, cooked in a Berber wood fire oven, complete with olive oil and amlou jam. We will gather the ingredients for the tagine we will eat later in the day and drop them off at the Berber house where you can try your hand at the optional Berber tagine cooking class, or let them do the cooking for us!
We will make our way deep into the valley, where we will find freshwater waterfalls, palm trees and a perfect swimming spot. Many people wet the rocks and use them as water slides; you should try doing the same! This is also an excellent opportunity to enjoy a swim and suntan. After the swim, we will head back to a Berber house where we had dropped off the ingredients earlier.
Whilst we were swimming, the owner of the house had made us a Tagine (Lamb, Chicken or Vegetables tagine at your request) using your ingredients and some amazing spices. We will be in the middle of nowhere, eating at a local’s house. It is a humbling experience.
The tour will be in a private vehicle solely for you and your party’s use. We include mineral water for every passenger. We hope that you will feel comfortable and enjoy your time with us, and we will do our very best to make you feel like VIPs.
