“The real moroccan experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

its full of unique thing that you'll never find in any other place like moroccan clothes,pants,dried fruits and moroccan tea.
also there's alot of street shows that's really different from oter shows like people playng with snacks,cards and MONKEYS!!
to see the whole souq there's alot of cafes above the apartments go and buy a juice and you can sit and watch everything.

“Labyrinth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Loved shopping in the souks- would need two weeks just for shopping! Even if you're not a shopper its still definately a trip you have to make. Don't show that you're intersted in anything even if you are, keep it cool and casual and reserved that way you won't get harrased. If you like something, don't show it! Think of how much you want to pay before hand, then haggle away. Don't be afraid to walk away without buying even if you have spent a while haggling. Shop arround before hand to see what going rates are then go for it.

“Go to say that you have been... Then get away fast!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

It is an experience but it becomes annoying very quickly! The vendors, the monkey handlers, the henna artist, the snake charmers are too pushy and overbearing! Just looking is not and option, they bug you to death! Beware of the guys who want to show you around! They are not being "nice" they will ask for money in the end!

“Lovely week in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is where all shopping happens.
Prepare yourself to bargain and bargain for everything. The 1st prices are always 4 to 5 more than you pay, so bargain!
