“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

Place full of wonderful things to see. We spent some of our time at night sat in a cafe watching all the hustle and bustle go by. It was a wonderful experience.

“Look Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

There are many interesting places to visit within the medina however with the traffic that flows through there , you need to watch your step. Some shop keepers can be very persistent and you need to be very firm if you are not interested in their wares. Many also do not like you taking photos, it's a good idea to ask first.

“Back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

When you get over the cultural shock that scares you among mopes, bikes and donkey carts you start feeling back in time like you were living in the middle age, absolutely authentic and pure. Everyone has to live it :)

“Very lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

A must go! We went here a few times in the evening to dine and just shop, it can become very busy so keep your daughters close!! My daughter was whistled at and called shakira a few times until my son gave the culprits 'the look'! But overall enjoyed it.

“Be prepared to bargain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

Where to start? Haggling is the number one sport and passion for Moroccans! They are offended if you don't try to bargain with them.... Mind you, they are very good at it but in the end, it is a win win for all
