Definitely not Europe but a great experience. Learn how to barter or walk away. Fairly safe but you have to dodge motorbikes, bicycles and carts

Spent 2 days in the souk, found it interesting, bit stressful, a lot of the people were really great to talk to but a Few were agressif and even rude.

Wow. Very busy small streets with non stop shops. Lots of the same kind of shops (how do they compete??). Crazy and fun. Watch out for the donkeys and motorcycles haha.

Just remember that if you get lost, ask the direction to the square. From the square, you can easily find the main roads and use your gps. Do not accept help from people that you don't know. Always taking advantage from the shopkeeper that you...More

Awesome markets. Great selection of goods. Wander without being harassed but stay weary at all times. Friendly sellers. Enjoyed negotiating price to pay (told to halve what they are asking to start with). Allow plenty of time - these markets are large.

Amazing place to visit. Make sure you barter with the vendors. I went for half off of whatever price they originally stated. I usually got the price I wanted, if not I left. The vendors are very friendly if you are friendly. I never felt...More

It’s almost impossible to enjoy this incredible place while trying not to get hit by motos and bikes. Other souk/Medinas in Morroco are pedestrian only... or at least find the pedestrian section here. It’s a shame because there is so much to see - and...More

A must-go for shoppers-a large busy milieu of all types of goods - quality is not perfect but prices good - you need to really bargain (prices cut by 50 to 60% of quotes). Really interesting for first timers but for non- shoppers on e...More

Realistically you should walk through the souks. It's fascinating... but such hassle and stress if you want to just browse. Leather, ceramics, clothing,... it's all there. Whatever price you're first offered, divide by 3 and settle for 50%!

As I love shopping the souks were right up my street. You have to have your wits about you and never pay the 1st price quoted by any vendor. A realistic price will be around half of what is originally asked for so do your...More

i hate them too! just avoid the market square, which is hard to. so, the alternative is to walk on the sides than passing through the centre. otherwise, the souk is a must visit!
