Experience Berber culture and cuisine on a full-day, private trip to Paradise Valley from Marrakech that includes hotel pickup and drop-off, traditional morning tea, an optional cooking class, and a lunch of tagine and fresh-baked bread. Enjoy the flexibility of a private tour as you explore Paradise Valley’s waterfalls, natural swimming pools, cliff jumps, and waterslides in a dramatic mountain setting.
Get an early start on the day with 7am pickup at your accommodations in Marrakech, then board an air-conditioned minivan for the 2.5-hour trip to Agadir, where you’ll pause for photos at a scenic overlook, and visit a local market to shop for fresh produce. Choose the ingredients for your tagine lunch, then continue to Paradise Valley, a 40-minute drive from Agadir. Walk a short distance into the valley, then pause for a traditional Moroccan snack of mint tea with freshly-baked bread, olive oil, and amlou, a sweet mixture of almonds, argan oil, and honey. After your tea break, visit the home of a Berber family; if desired, you can stay at the house and learn how to bake bread and prepare Berber tagine, or simply drop off the fresh ingredients from Agadir and continue farther into Paradise Valley. Keep walking, and you’ll find waterfalls, palm trees, and a perfect swimming spot with rock waterslides. You can spend the afternoon swimming and sunbathing, then return to the house for a tagine lunch served by the family (the meal can be made with vegetarian ingredients, lamb, or chicken). Enjoy a leisurely meal and local hospitality, then begin the return trip to Marrakech, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your accommodations.
