Great vibes!

Plenty of history between its walls. People were nice and very welcoming! I had some Garantita to fuel the long walk around the Kasbah. Delicious!

Just to take a walk in this place is a trial, but worth while for a memory, do not expect to find it well maintained but, it will open your eyes to a world long forgotten by many Historians

I strongly suggest having a local walk you around. The environment is very confusing to navigate. Some vendors have items you will never see anywhere else. I highly recommend that you are a seasoned adventurer or be guided by one. But it's an amazing place to experience.

Like many souks, it is fun and really interesting to visit this one. It is picturesque; the casbah with its narrow streets and friendly people is a great place to visit.

The Kasbah is a must to see. You need good legs as there are many steps. We even saw the garbage collector the donkey doing its job.

On a recommendation, our group of 7 contacted Mr. Samir Falali to provide a private tour of the Kasbah. An excellent, all day tour. He met us at the ferry, drove us from location to location, provided a walking tour of the Kasbah, answered all questions, provided history and local flair. An excellent day and wonderful tour.

Cute little streets, folks chatting on their doorsteps (by the way look at the "doorstep-sitting-preventer" at the women's house/school. Go visit the woodworker: a greatly skilled artisan. Plenty of great smelling pastry and bread shops. The Kasbah is on a rather steep hill so get the car to drop you at the top. Good seafood restaurants near the sea.

The Kasbah in Algiers is actually in quite good condition in those parts which have been renovated. There's also an absence of the hassle factor which is so common in North African cities (especially if you're used to say the Kasbah in Fez, Morocco). It's worthwhile going with a guide so that you get to see the most important parts... More

If you are looking for an immersion in Algiers, the real one, you have to go there! You'll love the little narrow streets full of small shops of artisans (copper, wicker, jeweler) and many moorish castles and museums. A guided visit is preferebale!

I was fortunate to visit the Casbah twice, once the lower Casbah and the second time the upper Casbah both times with friends who knew the place well. Algiers' casbah is still recovering from its isolation and bad reputation of the Algerian civil war. So the first time I visited with my Taiwanese wife I had some apprehensions. These quickly...
