The souk is an important place of interest where you could practise your haggling skills. But be mindful & careful because prices of goods differs and depends on your Country of origin.

Beware as you will experience pleasant and unpleasant here. Yes, you will be harassed, pretty much on every step you will take. That's part of souks and Moroccan culture if you cannot handle that, just don't go. Or just... don't pay attention and walk on - you will be left alone. Few useful tips. 1. You will definetly get lost!... More

Marrakech aka "India lite" is definitely the worst part of our trip around Morocco. We travel extensively and can readily handle aggressive touts (india, south america, etc..) but in Marrakech they are more akin to thieves. There is nothing in Marrakech that you won't see or can't buy in other parts of Morocco at a fraction of your best hard... More

We hired a local guide to see the places you wouldn't want to venture into alone. Prepare to be shocked. As one visitor put it 'folk living rough on our city streets have it better than theses poor devils'

No need to write a long review here. If you are in Marrakech this is a place you need to go and see and experience. It is big, crowed and easy to get lost in, but it is something that you must see and experience. Do it!

Do not listen to anyone in the street that tells you they are from your hotel!!!!! Ask your hotel to book a regulated guide. We stayed at la maison Arabe and they gave us a phone to call them on if we got into any difficulty. We did get lost, its very easy to get lost, honestly. Take care of... More

Wonderful time in the Marrakech Souks. Recommend you first go with a guide that can help you navigate through them and understand the culture (bargaining) and layout. Then go on your own and just get lost in the vast catacombs of shops.....never be afraid to ask how to get back to the main square (the Madina) everyone will always graciously... More

Full of that with some small bargains and some expensive outlets. Not as impressive as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul but well worth a visit...... and it's fun trying to find your way back out.
