We were shown around the Kasbah--what kind of fossils they have, how they find the fossils in the stone, how they cut the stone and polish them. Prices in the shop are set, so you do not have to bargain. They have the most amazing tabletops, sinks, fountains, etc., so I would advise saving your money and buying something incredible... More

We were impressed with their tour and quality of their products. Since we were brought in by a reputable tour company we felt comfortable buying a table of fossilized stone to be shipped to New York. Afterwards, I read some reviews questioning the reliability and difficulty for their shipping and how they lived up to delivering products in proper condition.... More

We were amazed at the beauty of the different objects, furniture and murals that are produced from fossils. The visit is accompanied by a description of the process and naturally an opportunity to buy some of the wares, Great visit.

They offer detailed information about fossils, from the origin, to the mining, to the preparation for sale. The make and SELL all kinds of products from large fountains to key chains. Slabs of marble with imbedded fossils are made into table tops and bathroom vanities. We were not bothered by high pressure sales tactics . Go and have fun.

A country that has always evoked pictures of mysteries and beauty - and it far exceeded my expectations! I had the privilege to go with my sister on a Cosmos tour to Morocco - what an experience!. We started at Casablanca, onto Rabat, Meknes and Fez - doing sightseeing in the Royal palace, Hassan Tower and the Kasbah of Oudays... More

We three women had a delightful visit at Macro Fossils Kasbah. It was very interesting to learn how the slabs of stone were cut, and "carved" to enhance the aspects of the fossils. Large table tops, sink tops, and statues were sliced and polished and enhanced. Remnants from the process were not wasted. They became plates, soap dishes, small bowls... More

I visited this Fossils in September and also in December. There is large area for all selling stuff. Perfect location just outside Erfoud, near hotel Belere or Salam. There are many interesting and nice products from fossils : tables,decoration products,fountains,sinks.. Many tourist visited this area during my stay. You can also visit area, where fossils are produced - local factory.

We purchased a fossil table since this shop was highly recommended by our guide. He showed us a book of reviews where he demonstrated and promised that if the table was received damaged that it would be replaced at no additional charge. They were very slow with replying to our requests. Finally when i threatened to report to VISA, they... More
