If you are with a guide they take you to a leather shop which overlooks the tannery and the owner will give you a tour and let you take pictures. They will also give you some fresh mint to help with the smell of the ammonia which is used to soften the leather.
The tanneries are quite incredible and the main tannery employs 250 people.
It didn't smell too bad either!
Expect a tour of the leather shops after. There are some amazing goods but be sure to start with a low offer. We paid around 50% of the asking price but I'm sure if we had tried harder we would have gotten a bit more off!
I would set a price in your head first and be prepared to walk away - if your price is reasonable they won't let you walk away!
