Just amazing, never seen a place like it. Full of vitality and interesting stalls.People quite courteous providing a purchase is made. Excellent street performers. Be aware of pickpockets, but that is everywhere.

The souks have everything you could possibly need. Part of the fun is winding your way through the narrow passage ways. Not part of the fun is the aggressive sellers. I don't mind being approached, but they follow you and yell at you. I found...More

This market reminds me of chatuchak in Bangkok where you have different sections of merchandise and have to bargain really hard to bring the price closer to what it really is worth as the sellers priced high from the start. Definitely worth a walk around...More

We were wary of visiting the souk alone (just me and my daughter) as some reviews made it sound quite scary, and we were unsure whether we would need a male guide to ensure our safety. In the end we decided to go alone and...More

We did the souks on the first day which was a disaster ! We were totally overwhelmed. Between the young Moroccans and the motorbikes/mopeds it is bonkers !!! Please see my review for Omar (tour guide). Don't take pictures of the snakes or monkeys....the vendors...More

This was not my first experience with the souks of Marrakesh which should be a highlight of any trip. However, the souks are now invaded by motorbikes which zip thru at fantastic speeds. Pedestrians are forced to hug the walls to avoid being run over....More

Go in with a set budget of what you're willing to spend overall. You'll never know what you'll find in here, so if you're going in looking for a specific thing, you're doing the souks all wrong. When you find something that sparks your interest,...More

I can confirm the Ensemble Artisanal Market. This really gives you a good idea of what a fair price SHOULD be. Of course no negotiating here, which can of course be part of the fun.

I only tried cash - since it’s easy to stick to the negotiated price ;0). As for the price setting - agree with your self what you think is the max price you will pay, start a bit under and the negotiate from there. And... More

Several questions... The main item I’ll be looking for in Marrakech is one of the large metal hanging lamps (max 3’ long). Can anyone who’s purchased a similar item tell me what it cost and then how much it was to ship to the US? (Or other parts of the world to give me an idea of what to expect). Second question... I’m considering getting a guide for a few hours since we’ll only be in Marrakech for a day and I have very specific souks I’d like to visit, plus having to figure out how to ship things home... For those of you who got a guide, did you regret it? Can I get recommendations for a good guide who’ll let you customize where you go? Next question... I’m highly sensitive to deisel exhaust, so will be avoiding the main square where I’ve read mopeds are a problem. But will I be able to handle any part of Marrakech??? I don’t have asthma, but pollution is the kind of thing that will ruin my day and whole outlook on a country. Lastly, we will be going to the Monday market in the Ourika valley, so hopefully I’ll get most of my shopping done there— does anyone know if they sell lamps at that market?

We paid 60 for a latern that could stand freely and for the larger one the size of a main light feature in a sitting room we paid 80 which uses candles inside as opposed to a bulb. Prices are Moroccon Dirham. Hope this helps
