We went to the souks on our first day and it was great and very interesting but we got fouled by locals. They can spot tourists and even if you're not asking them where to go, they tell you they know where the souk is and they have to go anyways (for work or to see a family member) and then at the end they ask you for some money. Either be prepared to give money (as all is all they can help you find your way) or say NO straight away is someone is telling you to follow them. We also had one guy who showed us around and was taking some money form the people we bought stuff from. That's another way for them to get money. But make sure you know what you want before accepting help. Also, you have to bargain there. Maybe decrease the price by 50%. Be ready to leave the shop and come back later. Sometimes they will call you back and accept your last offer :)
