Hello and Azul, dear guests! My name is Said and I am a Berber from Tassaouirgane in the High Atlas Mountains, around 65 kilometers from Marrakech. I have been working in the tourist business for many years, and I now run my own small company that offers activities in the High Atlas Mountains and the Sahara. We would like to invite you to discover the breath-taking landscapes of Morocco and become more familiar with the traditions and warm-hearted hospitality of the Berber people. Best regards

Tour description

We will prepare our dishes in a family home in Tassa Ouirgane, a Berber village in the mountains at the entrance of the Toubkal National Park, about 65 km drive south of Marrakech. We also will have the opportunity to learn how to make bread the traditional way and attend a tea ceremony.

To come to Tassa Ouirgane, from Ouirgane or Marigha Times will be adapted in case we will pick you up in Marrakech, mules are waiting for us in Marigha and will carry us up to the village in about 1 ½ hour. After lunch we will start our way back to Marigha, walking along the gardens and we will visit the wheat mill of the village.

*** On Saturdays and Tuesdays , there is also the possibility to buy all fresh ingredients we need for cooking on the weekly Berber market in Asni or Tahanaout, where all people from the mountains in this area come to meet, talk, see a doctor and to do the shopping for the family for the next week or two. In this case, the car will take us directly to Tassa Ouirgane 1250 meter altitude after the stopover in Asni or Tahanaout. The way back from Tassa Ouirgane to Marigha´´ouirgane or Marrakech will be as described above.
