It was great experience to walk in the old Medina of Tangier. There are steps, slope and some of the walls painted ocean blue. It was beautiful. Experience being lost in the Medina and asking the way back to the Hotel.
Do not believe the stranger that offer you help or try to point you into a different direction. Twice I was asking for direction after careful selection and then a stranger pops up interrupting the conversation and attempting to point me into a totally different direction.

Did a day trip from Spain with a tour group and even though it was a long day, it was great. The medina has very narrow streets and it is confusing if you do not know where you are going. There are hawkers who does follow you everywhere, hoping you would buy something from them. If you do find something of interest, you need to bargain with them at least 50%. Be prepared to walk away if they do not back down. They will usually follow you and make the sale at the price you want. I enjoyed my short walk through the medina.

Everything to do with my experience of the medina was negative. Firstly the taxi driver refusing to give me change and therefore pocketing the equivalent of €5. The people just never leave you alone, they follow you, they try every way to get money from you and even when you make it clear you don't want a "private" tour they just won't take no for an answer. Then they get angry when you refuse to give them money. Our "tour guide" got quite threatening and we really had to keep our cool.

The rest of Tangier in general is like this and the streets and beach our very dirty.. Good luck in the medina, you're going to need patience and it's not an nice experience in my opinion. The people on the whole were quite rude. Not recommended
