We are a couple at the " wrong end "of our 50's, actually I'm 60, but I digress.
We went to the tannery this morning, we're given a bunch of mint to alleviate the stink of the leather making process, and believe me, even with...More
Avoid it at any cost! They will try to scam you! They said 100 dhm to pay and then the start increasing a price when you about to pay for a “tour”! Trying to intimidate you to pay more with bunch of guys circling you....More

Not to mention, the shop owner kicked...More

Please avoid this place and don't agree to be guided by a local to the tanneries. You will be scammed and would be pressured to give money to a bunch of people including the "local guide" who will show you around the tanneries for 5...More

I agree with the above posts. The tanneries whilst interesting and rather smelly are not worth the hassle you will get in trying to find them and more importantly the sales tactics which are the most aggressive in Marrakech.
