Had a tajine making lesson, and a wonderful walk around the village, followed by supper and a tea competition. The rooms were comfortable and in the...

After the exotic, extremely intense Marrakesh and an exhilarating, physically demanding Atlas mountain trek, we were looking for a slower, more relaxed pace as well as a more authentic 'insider' experience of Morocco.

Hi Aaron, thank you so much for your lovely review. It was great having your group visit, and I really hope you do come back next year to see us all (especially if it was you who won the tea-making competition! I just can't remember who won at the moment.) Regards, Mohamed

We participated in many activities whilst at the centre including bread and tagine making, taking the donkey to the well to get water among many others. The weather was...

I started my travels in Morocco by spending 6 days at the Berber Cultural Center and it was great! I had traditional breakfast at the local market, baked bread the Berber way, participated in a tea making competition, swam in the swimming pool, picked cactus fruits with the son Anir and went for walks in the village with the beautiful...

Although my stay with Mohammed and his family was short lived, I must wholeheartedly recommend as I would love to stay longer! I felt very welcome as a part of the family and friends who were willing to share with me their knowledge of local culture, cuisine, landscape and life style in general. They have arranged for us some lovely...
