“Unique experience”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

tight streets, smell of leather coming out of the shops, bazaars, medina of tangier is a place where you will feel relaxed. You might get lost in those steets but don't worry just follow the crowd.

“Experience the Experience...”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

When in Tangier experience the Medina and what Moroccans have to offer. Although it can be overwhelming it's a different culture in a exotic place. I had very few problems shopping for great gifts, bartering, and finding my way through the medina. I would recommend a guide to help understand prices, language, etc. Vendors will stick by you but firmly say no thanks brother and they will understand as foreigners need to understand they have to make a living also! Just go for it!

“Be prepared for Western culture shock”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Bustling, hectic, overwhelming sights and smells.

We had a guide - highly recommended - as it is a labyrinth of streets and shops (some smaller than your closet). You will get a good view of how the locals live, shop, and work.

Not sure if any goods were bargains but great photo opportunities.

Appeared safe although warned about pickpockets.
