Hold onto your hats! This is a really bustling, exciting, noisy and worthwhile visiting. There are many bargains to be had if you're prepared to barter. We have great fun!

Even if you're not prepared to do any shopping, it's fun just to walk around the Souk. We bought some perfume & herbs. Didn't bargain & of course regretted it. However, it's not a lot of money to us, & it's a pleasant experience.

Everything is nice and clean but watch out: there is really not much left of the atmosphere of a real Suq!

Everybody gets lost in the souk, they said. Well, it's true. And we did. After the warnings, we decided to to give it a miss on the first day. But temptation was succumbed to and we went 'just a little way' in to see what it's all about. Several hours later we emerged! A mass shops, stalls, traders, craftsmen all... More

Love these markets and its people. Although they try to rip you off but then again who does not. I had an excellent guide who took care of my safety and well being.

It can get super crazy and busy, you need to know our way around. But keep walking and you will discover lots of things you would not know exist. As deep inside as you go. the prices are much much cheaper (selling a bunch of menth on the main square for 30 dh and finding it inside the souk for... More

I visited Marrakesh on a day trip from Agadir, the weather was monsoon like but what a fabulous experience. The palace was beautiful with an amazing history as was the tombs. We saw the mosque from a distance and it looked outstanding. The large souk on the market square was another fascinating experience, I learned the trick to buying was... More

This is a bit of a "Marmite" place - you either love it or hate it. I love it. It is a little scary - the mix of scooters, donkeys pulling carts, vans and pedestrians in the narrow souks with shops spilling out into the thoroughfare as traders try to coax you in to their shop as you try to...

We visited the souks last week and have to agree with the majority of the reviews. It's crazy busy and we got hassled from the moment we stepped off the bus till the moment we got back on! Despite this we did enjoy it, particularly the snake charmers and the 'haggly baggly' with the stallholders. it's definitely worth going for... More
