“HAGGLE ALWAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Start low they will start high. Give a second final price and walk way, mostly worked. Also haggle on the taxi to the Souk/Medina

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Hustle and bustle, camels. Cullture. Food , on the doorstep of lots. Of attractions, people were. Nice, sometime a bit pushy but over all a nice experience.

“Crowded!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

So touristy, expensive, poor quality stuff, dirty, awful food, and grasping. It was a miracle that we didn't get run over. Yet, though it was so touristy, many of the people did not speak English...sorry for being so arrogant!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The medina is a huge maze of streets, shops and small workshops making all sorts of items. The main square comes Alice at night, and is truly a spectacle. We were able to navigate the 15 minute walk to the square, but getting back was another story. We stopped to ask for help a number of times, but it seems that no one can read a map. Eventually, we gave up and were able to get onto a street with taxis, but the driver didn't really know how to read the map or understand where we needed to go. He kept stopping to ask people for directions. Eventually, we made it back to a nearby gate that we recognized. There is a lot of moped traffic within the medina which makes walking tricky. The sights are really interesting. We loved it.

“The medina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Great experience, even better if you have a guide as very eady to get lost. If you do get lost , ask in a shop for direction, not someone from the street
