It can get super crazy and busy, you need to know our way around. But keep walking and you will discover lots of things you would not know exist. As deep inside as you go. the prices are much much cheaper (selling a bunch of menth on the main square for 30 dh and finding it inside the souk for... More

I visited Marrakesh on a day trip from Agadir, the weather was monsoon like but what a fabulous experience. The palace was beautiful with an amazing history as was the tombs. We saw the mosque from a distance and it looked outstanding. The large souk on the market square was another fascinating experience, I learned the trick to buying was... More

This is a bit of a "Marmite" place - you either love it or hate it. I love it. It is a little scary - the mix of scooters, donkeys pulling carts, vans and pedestrians in the narrow souks with shops spilling out into the thoroughfare as traders try to coax you in to their shop as you try to...

We visited the souks last week and have to agree with the majority of the reviews. It's crazy busy and we got hassled from the moment we stepped off the bus till the moment we got back on! Despite this we did enjoy it, particularly the snake charmers and the 'haggly baggly' with the stallholders. it's definitely worth going for... More

Very busy, very fast paced. Be careful because the people will hustle you and try to sell you their crafts for super high prices. It's bargaining the entire time. But I loved it.

The colourful souks are a must to visit, but can be a bit scary. Constant approaches to buy goods means you feel you can never even glance at an item to be hounded. The shopkeepers are mostly good humoured asking where you come from and friendly, but there is always a feeling that whatever you buy will be either overpriced... More

We had a hilarious time bartering for wonderful leather, ceramic and wooden goods, also spices and silver earrings etc. Everyone is so good humured and the harder you bargain the more they laugh. The old town of Marrakech is just a great place to visit. However bring your own booze!!!

Interesting place to visit. But Be careful. Don't let anyone offer to take you anywhere. They will lie to you and you can get horribly lost in the back streets.
