“Souks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Great fun. Recommend arriving early and getting lost/exploring. When haggling, offer 25% of their initial price. After some haggling, you'll almost inevitably end up paying about 30-35% of their original price!

“Lovely day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

A real eye opener and thoroughly enjoyed my few days getting around and enjoying the atmosphere. Went in on the bus which was very convenient - watch out for the henna ladies though - as they will say let me just show you and then ask for £20 - I obviously did not pay ...... lol

“Souk...it up!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Hectic, crazy, mental, crowded, just 4 words that spring to mind on first entering the Souk, by night.
If you go in the day time, it does feel a lot more calmer, & will be less full of tourists, due to the intense heat, just make sure you carry a water bottle with you.
Would go for the experience really, as after the 50th stall/shop selling the same as the previous 50th, the lure of the haggle loses it's charm & you almost want them to just state the price & get on with it.
Please dont use the horse drawn carriages around the Souk, the horses have stood all day in the blistering heat, dont look well looked after, collapse & then forced to work again...

“Interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

A must visit place in Marrakech, you can buy pretty much anything in the souks just don't be afraid to have a good wander through and a simple no thank you is all you need!
