“Haggle haggle haggle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Great bargains to be found! Be careful not to get lost in the alleys of stalls and shops. Enjoy looking at amazingly cheap leather bags and other items. Take 5 and have a coffee in a cafe and watch the sights! People watching at its best.

although its not the most hygienic place in the world it was different and quite enjoyable, don't let women go on there own as it can be quite intimidating

“Heart of the Medina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Be brave and make your way into the depths of the labyrinth to the real Medina with all the exotic smells and dark narrow passages. Your chance to be Indiana Jones for the day and grab some real treasures at "most special prices just for you". When the traders say they have something to fit you no matter what strange shape and size you might be, believe them, they really do.

“Nice place to visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We spent a morning here - I really liked the stalls with spices and food and the pottery but didn't think much to the plastic tat. Worth a visit, can get hot so work your way up to the archaeological museum for air con! The people are harmless though so don't feel threatened.
