Just Do It!

Great fun - just keep your hands in your pockets! There isn't much you can't buy and some interesting sights on the way round.

Really disappointed with the souks. Massive area to cover but most of the stalls that we saw were no better or interesting than the market stalls here in the UK selling knock offs. Didn't really appreciate the amount of pestering to buy which really put us off. Word of warning: I had read the reviews about avoiding guides to show... More

I visited Marrakech in June it's my family. The place sounded so exotic and wonderful and it was on my bucket list. This turned into my most disappointing holiday due to mopeds driving at you on pavements and all through the very cramped souks. There are signs up to say that they cannot drive through there but nobody seems to... More

This place is like a maze. So many stalls, places to shop, money exchangers and so much more. Found great deals. Of can course haggling is a must!

Having been to this souk a few times it gets no better but you get smarter, you are there to spend money so avoid the henna ladies, monkey owners, snake charmers, watch the acrobats and have a mint tea. Its a spectacle and full of mad characters, its like a theatre of the bizarre. Don't read a map in public,... More

I have travelled to many places in the world and have never been more disappointed than with the souks in Marrakech and the filth, harassment and visible animal abuse in the main square Jemaa El-Fnaa. Be careful, people are rude and become aggressive very quickly when you do not hand over your money. Tourists are viewed as if they are... More

Wow, what an experience! We spent time there 2 days. The shopping is fantastic. Bargaining is fun and exhausting to get the best price. We had to leave more than once. Keep smiling though! :)
