If you're interested in food and local culture, a visit to the Berber Cultural Center is an absolute must. It's an easy 90-minute taxi ride from Marrakesh, and a complete change of pace from the city. The host, Mohamed, is a sincerely lovely guy, who has a mission to share Berber culture with the world. I visited with my two... More

I was with a group as part of original vollunteers in Marrakesh which was in itself a broadening experience but while in Morocco, we were told about the Berber Cultural Centre and it turned out to be one of the main highlights of the trip! (I actually returned for a second visit as one wasn't enough!) It was the best... More

I went to Marrakech with my two children for a week's holiday. On researching things to do with children, the Berber Cultural Center was recommended to us by an acquaintance. Once we arrived at our hotel in Marrakech (the Sofitel Palais Imperial), we made enquiries about the Center. No one seemed to have heard of it; even our excellent concierge... More

I was worried going out to spend the day with the family that it would be a sanitised, westernised view of a picture perfect family, but it wasn't. It was a big, noisy extended family that welcomed us into their home. The women were shy but keen to show us how to cook tajine and bread for our dinner, the... More

This is an incredible place filled with some of the nicest most caring people you will ever meet. You will get to experience a part of the Moroccan culture in a more intimate way through cooking a meal, making bread in a clay oven or getting water with a donkey at the local well. They have a very comfortable and... More

My wife daughter and I spent a delightful half day learning more about the Berber culture and learning how to prepare a delectable Moroccan meal, including cooking our bread in an authentic local oven--not an easy task for spoiled Americans. Our hosts were warm and caring, making the relatively long drive more than worth the time.
