Simply row upon row of fascinating Moroccan gifts and souvenirs and was pleasantly surprised after Tunisia how happily the majority of vendors allowed you to browse their wares. Be prepared to haggle about the prices, they will start incredibly high! Not an experience I enjoyed too much but well worth it to get your goods at a bargain price! Check... More

A great place to visit, you will 100% get lost while exploring the narrow cobbled streets. Plenty of character and charm running through these streets and a truly majestic feel.

Fantastic stores for leather goods, nuts, pashminas, and fake everything. Must walk around, must negotiate HARD, and be mindful of pickpockets. Be weary, there is a reason why there is NO price tag on anything, you will be quoted what ever the merchant feels like, and believes you can pay. Negotiate hard. Example, wooded chess board with hand made pieces,... More

Be very careful not to take any photos of the monkeys or the cobra's without negociating a price first. They hound you for $$$$ and its never enough. The Morocaans want to sell you everything and anything. If they ask for an item 200 duram then you can probably get it for 50- 70 duram. Less than half the asking... More

A very interesting morning spent looking at the stalls. All a wonderful blend of colours, smalls and sounds - if you want to buy anything make sure that you barter - a discount of anything up to 70% is available, but it might take a little while to get the stallholders down that low!

On entering the souks we were hanging onto each other, however we soon overcame this and found if you showed no interest or said no thank you with a smile all was well... Got lost few times but always found way out. Would not take children here.. Too busy..

A maze of heaving narrow alleyways and side streets where every shop owner will try to entice you in offering the best price for whatever you want - lots of "genuine fakes" and well as typical Moroccan souvenirs. Haggling is the only way to buy but don't be afraid to walk away if you don't like the price. Shops are... More

Colours, smells, noise, busy, shocking to all your senses! look around, don't get pressured to purchase unless you are sure! Walk away, haggle haggle haggle and SMILE! I think you have to take it for what it is and enjoy it... yes the stall holders want you to spend but that is part of it! WE managed to get some... More
