On our first trip to the medina a young man accosted us and pretended to be a waiter from the hotel...Very common we found out as were pestered by other men pretending to be waiters, cooks and barmen. All wanting to take you to their uncles shops. They don't leave you alone.

You get the usual mither but no pressure. Must admit on sale is mainly fake handbags and t-shirts, which you can get back home! Nice atmosphere. Visited the Fort as well. Unfortunately no info in English, it was on the outside but inside just French and Arabic.

Liked the feel of the medina at night but disliked the constant battle of shop owners and restaurant staff trying to get you into their premises.Disliked the camels tied up in the entrance to the medina every night especially the baby one who was made to wear silly hats just to get peoples attention

There are lots of people who will try to overcharge you and try and get you to look at their shops. They will get annoyed if you do not. Not enough choice for beverages unless you drink becks beer or wine. Shops all sell the same goods

The Medina is a pretty area, shame the shop workers don't give you a minutes peace. Hassled from start to finish, very annoying and unfriendly.

If it just wasn't so overcrowded - if one could walk down those narrow streets freely without being constantly hassled by annoying sellers, this old medina with its beautifully decorated doors would be a pleasure to explore. However, there are few 'real' workshops of traditional or tradition-inspired arts and crafts (mainly jewelry, rug making and pottery) that made a visit... More

The old Medina is a rabbit warren. You get hassled to go into their shops but you really need to be strong and say 'No'
