“2 other locations included with tickets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The ticket also included a museum next door and a riad that is used for art exhibits and other events. All were well worth the time. Great exhibits, art, culture, and history.

“fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

we didn't have a guide, just walked through medina and found it right in the heart of it. was quite crowdy, but worth a visit, you can even climb stairs to see all the rooms.

“The old school days”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Some wonderful architecture to see, and something of an insight to days gone by... However, somewhat lacking on information and explanation. Door staff not too helpful.

“Amazing detail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

enjoyed seeing a view of life for students studying the Koran in historic times. Saw an insight from the preserved bedrooms, seemed like a very large maze with surprisingly small rooms for some students. Worth a visit if you enjoy history and culture
