Get ready when you go into the medina - it is exciting, mad, energetic and exhausting but you will love it I am sure. Watch out for the motorbikes weaving in and out of the pedestrians and dont take any photos or ask for directions unless you want to pay.

This is a very exciting place, with a real buzz. Don't attempt to drive and if you are uncertain then take a guided tour. Well worth a visit!

The first thing that hit me was the smell. I have sensitive smelling anyway but it stank. Human and animal waste, and two stroke fuel. Then there was the animals they looked so sad in pain, with no quality if life. We got lost, as they have no street names. So many people and transport modes. You just walk across... More

Visiting the medina and the square (both by day and night) is a must do. The small alleyways seem absolutely endless with so many goods to look at. In the square there is an array of entertainment and in the food markets there is so much to look at.( although we were advised not to eat there). It really is... More

It was my first trip to the city: amazing, exotic, beautiful, chaotic, dirty. Now that I have been there, I am sure I can enjoy it better but as a first time it has shocked me. At least, thou feel that is different to Western Europe. A great, thrilling experience.

What can I say about the median of Marrakech other than "wow"! The smells, the sounds, the sights.....all combine to give an amazing experience whether you are simply walking round or seeking great bargains. While there be sure to visit one of the terrace cafés (just look up, you'll see them everywhere), as you will get a wonderful view. For... More

IT is easy to find your way in the medina. It is the heart of Marrakesh. IT is Not easy to access the medina by car so take comfortable shoes with you, you will walk a lot. Everything you need is for sale but no Supermarkets here. You have to buy everything in small shops, on the streets or little... More

The trick to enjoying the Medina is to enter it with the right attitude, calm, unhurried and slightly aloof, polite but firm NO'S to the multiple attempts to sell anything to you and you should be fine.

It is difficult to describe the excitement of the Medina. You really have to lose yourself both physically and emotionally and open yourself to its many charms. It is easy to get lost but we quickly learned that all roads lead to the square...eventually. The Medina wall is good if you are lost as a taxi will take you where... More
