We went to the souks with the guide and I dread to think where we would end up if were there on our own. It is a maze and the maps we had were useless and most streets just don't have any name displayed. It was an interesting experience to us and despite the fact that we got ripped off... More

The souks are a maze but a good rule is to start opposite the Cafe Du France and walk straight as much as possible until you reach the metalwork section and the end of souks. There are sellers selling lots of items from spices to lamps, some fixed price (with clear signs) and most requiring haggling. Items are of variable... More

We arrived at the souk around 4pm. The weather was beautiful. You could hear all the calling from each shop, stall and people selling on the floor. The first thing you notice is the beautiful array of colours every where your eyes touch. The aromas of different things people are selling from oranges of the juice kiosk to the leather... More

Would of been ok if its was just adults but the kids were not all that impressed as it was way to intimidating for them.

We had to walk through the souks daily from our Riad as we visited various attractions around the medina. We did some shopping there, but not a lot, though we loved the feel of these places. Felt totally safe in there even at night, and the workers were friendly and always helpful. Wasn't as pushy as I remember Tunisian souks... More

You really need to have your wits about you in the market. My strong advice is never make eye contact with the locals as everyone is trying to extract money from you. I lasted about 2 hours when there with wife and we were chased by snake charmers and people purporting to be guides. Ended up getting shouted at by... More

Set aside a few hours of one evening to wander through the maze that is the Souks. You'll find all sorts of weird and wonderful things on sale, and bartering over the price is all part of the fun! Lovely buzzing atmosphere was you walk around, and you'll be sure to find something nice as a reminder of your time... More

Pro: One of the bigger open markets I have ever been other than Bangkok. Amazing pictures on the sly and beautiful colors Good, bad, and ugly everything is an eye opener and worth seeing. The souks, Medina, storks, the call to prayer anytime, the city walls, most all Moroccans and everything else about this city will be memorable and amazing!... More

Lovely experience strolling through the souks. Be careful of the motorcycles coming through. You need to haggle to get a event price but this is part of the experience.
