“take a guide!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I would highly recommend accepting the services of a local guide for your first foray into the souk in order to get your bearings and discover each of the areas dedicated to particular crafts and artesan activity.

“Wish we had more time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Wow! recommend a visit during the day and night to experience the different feel of the place. Loved all the bartering. Wish i'd had more space in the suitcase to bring goodies home.

“GREAT experience and tons of fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Definitely go here at least once in your life. It's an amazing place with tons of activity and variety for everyone. Food is extremely good. Bargaining with the store owners adds to the experience and makes it more enjoyable.

“Chaotic marketplace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

It's a real "never-seen-this" experience for "western citizens" !
Must admit it's a shcok at first, all of the people jumping around you, neverending crowd, barginers at stands selling jewelery, food, drinks. Stands with benches wher you can eat food made infront of you. And native people eating food without forks, but with their hands, but at the same time, well dressed.
Always someone chasing you, trying to sell you something, saying "Special price for you my friend! " :)
All in all, a MUST SEE!
