With our Artisan Visits, we strive to offer experiences that are both intellectually stimulating and emotionally resonant. By peeling back the layers of the tourist industry, we reveal the authentic Morocco, enabling you to forge genuine connections with local communities, explore traditional crafts, and immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Moroccan heritage through human engagements with the artisans themselves.
This was a wonderful day spent in deep conversation with Ali, my guide through artisan workshops in Sefrou. There’s a great deal of personal attention, and in particular if you show up with specific questions or areas of curiosity, your initiative will be rewarded. Provided a wonderful in-depth window into the craftwork of the artisans we visited, and gave me great context for the details to pay attention to in their work. A great experience across the board!
French/American citizen, I grew up in Morocco where I spent the first 18 years of my life. I have just returned from a 2 weeks trip there with family and friends (total 10 people)after 25 years. On of the highlights of the trip was this tour of the Medina in Fez. I had been in this Medina before and got lost even with local guides… the main difference of this tour is that it focuses on the crafts and the men behind them… Amazing interaction.. great experience. Jess is super easy to work with. Strongly Recommended!!
Sadiki took us on a very informative tour to a number of artisans in the Médina. We went to textile artisans (and got the most beautiful pashminas), the last brocade maker in Morocco (unbelievably complicated process), wood carvers, metal workers, etc. this was the real Morocco not the touristy Morocco. Highly recommend!
