For the quality of the items sold in the souk it's very expensive. Turkey or Thailand are much better for shopping.

Like many other market areas around the world, you are constantly being 'invited' to look at the stalls by the stall holders, and not allowed to simply browse. The stalls become all much of a muchness, selling a fairly limited range of goods, but you can't go to Marrakech without a trip to Souks!

You can't go to Marrakech without going to the souks and here is everything you need to fill your cases and struggle home trying not to break the bowls, lamps, secret boxes etc which you successfully bartered for. As a rule of thumb we didn't start bartering unless we really wanted the item and knew how much we were going... More

While it may not have been filmed here you can certainly easily picture yourself cast in the film. Surrounded by vendors, snake charmers, silks, baskets, leather, rugs, spices, lanterns and pottery. It is a colour and sensory overload. We had a personal guide who was fabulous and I strongly recommend hiring one as they know how to get through the... More

Like all Souks a lot of the same. However several really good different areas. We come across a lock maker in the Metal makers area. Great ornamental lock olde world. Of course everyone wants to sell you Aragon oil, lots of rip off merchants take care and seek out trusted merchants from your hotel. Be aware of the guides that... More

Lovely visit to the souk Marrakech. If you don't do this visit your mad. It is not what people say! People are friendly, yes it's crazy but wouldn't have it any other way. It's a fantastic experience. Yes they hassle you but come on they need money & want to earn a living. All you have to say is No... More

It's definitely worth visiting the Souks to grab a bargain, I managed to buy some nice leather bags for a fraction of the price that I would get at home just be prepared to haggle. I wouldn't really recommend wandering around on your own though as it's so easy to get lost. We got lots of people offering to show... More

Rows upon rows of touristy tat is the best way to sum it up however its one of those things you just have to go visit and say you have been there. Its ok just don't make it top of your list for things to do

Perhaps I was expecting too much with the shopping for Morocco but we were very disappointed overall, the souk was for the most part just cheap tat aimed at tourists, as they say in Thailand, " same, same but different". There were a few exceptions with some nice, interesting shops, and the souk is definitely something to behold but we... More
