The souk is a maze of alleys and vendors all selling the same thing - bags, pots, jewellry, scarfs, sandals, spices - but that is exactly what you would expect. Yes, it is very easy to get lost, but look up and you will see signs back to the main square so just follow them and eventually you will get back to civilisation. You must barter - whatever the price is they quote, go in with your initial bid at just under half. And be prepared to walk away, even if they get agressive, sad or make you feel guilty! We bought some small pots, the ones 'on show' were Safi branded which is supposed to be a good quality ceramic. We pointed out the colours we wanted, the vendor got the pots for us and wrapped them up - when we opened the package at home, the pots were not branded so much poorer quality - but hey, we paid £3 for each, so what do you expect. But maybe just watch what they actually put in the bag! I found some of the vendors a bit agressive in their way that they tried to stop you to come into their shop, and you do have to be prepared for every vendor to try to entice you in, so it does get a bit tiring after a while saying constantly no thank you, but that is all part of the fun! Seek out the bargains - leather bags are definately at the top of the list, as are the scarfs. If you do find yourself wandering out of the souk into unfamiliar streets, be prepared if you are truly lost and someone helps you find your way back to pay a tip. Go there and enjoy the experience! It has to be done.
