“Mad-house in Marakech!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

The souks in Marakech is truly a wonderful and very interesting place and an experience second to none! From the Jamaa el Fna square with its snake charmers, orange juice stalls, people with monkeys on ropes, ladies doing henna tattoos, horse and carriages to the tiniest of shops selling everything from food, to hair products, to brass, to clothes, to live animals, jewelry, lamps and furniture and meat, it is a complete overload on the senses. It is a total mad-house in the little alleys with hundreds of pedestrians, to donkeys with carts, mopeds, people on bicycles and children running. To get lost in the souks is a wonderful experience, but for me one day would be enough!

“A Day in the Past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

What a wonderful trip back in time! These friends know how to live in fun times as well as in every day life. In the souk one can find just about anything you desire: furniture, brass, food, spices, and many other interesting items (my friend bought a baby camel). If you have never been to Maroc (Morocco), it is time to enjoy this experience! Arabic, French, Spanish and English are spoken here, but in the desert ...? Although I believe no security warnings have been issued by our government, check with travel agents before you go.
