“Rip off merchants!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Save your money and go to paris instead. Everyone tried/did rip us off. Not happy jan! And people just continually hassled me, followed me, cornered me into shops. Didn't like it at all. And the quality of the stuff they are selling is crap too. Cheaper anywhere in Europe. And by the way, do these people realise they are in Africa, not europe!

“Souk shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Get lost in the alleyways and side shops, but get ready to bargain. It's part of the custom and if you really want an item, stick to your guns! The highest compliment is when they tell you that you must be Berber because your bargaining is so good!

Loads of bars and places to eat, can be annoying to be hassled by everyone you walk past but you can't expect any different!

“Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Shop, shop, shop. But try and remember where you came from, it's so easy to get lost in there!!! And be careful of the ice cream that is made with non pasteurized milk (I ended up with a bad stomach ache).

“This is the real Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Make sure you are well rested and hydrated because the medina can be exhausting in its hustle bustle. But it has to be experienced or you haven't done marrakech properly.
