Great place to visit

If you want to buy anything it is the place for. But be careful about the scams, don't ask any question or that will cost you a tip. Don't go to visit the tannery for free, like... read more

We did not really enjoy the experience because of the constant hassle, I totally understand that for very poor people, tourists are wealthy and can afford to buy. However, the level of hassle meant that we only ventured out of the Riad a few times and then after a few days, decided we had had enough. The Government really need... More

So very very poor,people always trying to grab you or get money from you, make sure you don't ask for directions or look at your map as they want paying for that, we made sure we were back at Hotel before it got dark.

Medina is Marrakech is the most fleshy, touristy, and commercial out all Medina's we have seen in Morocco. As everything, it has pluses and minuses. We like Marrakesh over Fes, Rabat, Casablanca, Meknes; etc., however, some people might get tired of mirages of sales people who are everywhere. If you are OK with saying "la shukran" a few times, then... More

Been here with my family, we love the Old medina, it was a small town surrounded by an immense wall dated since 11th Century, lovely color in earthy textures, amazing crazy souks and streets and its crazy but funny people, old and young Marrakesh -knows how to play the game of luring the tourist in their magical or bad dreams....

The medina is huge, don't be scared when you are stood out at the start of one of the pathways into it from the square, it is a must do when in Merrakech. The colours, smells, and friendly folk selling their goods is something you need to experience. People say you get hassled but they are not aggressive and it... More

A nice place to visit for a few hours to take in the sights and smells of the Medina, Beware of straying too far away from the main market as you may find yourself in a dark alley and unsure of your way back to the square. Most of the stalls sell the same thing, so if you dont get... More

we are quite well travelled, and Marrakesh was a must see place, the souks and Medina was an experience, but not one I want to repeat in a hurry, DO NOT TAKE CHILDREN, you can't stop and look at anything without being hassled and harassed, I would love to have walked freely and enjoyed the sights and sounds and occasionally...

Jemaa el Fna or the main square can be described as welcoming but chaotic at the same time, I must say it is not for the faint hearted. In this bulging square you will see everything from snake tamers , monkeys, donkeys and traditional dancers to stalls selling spices ,foods and beautiful hand made crafts. Don't be put of by...
