Marrakech Souks and Medina Tour

Morocco 3 hours

To better discover Marrakesh, enter an intricate maze of the narrow streets in the world of the souks. Protected from the sun by slatted awnings, you will find a variety of quarters established by craftsmen, according to a structured system of corporation. There are souks of basketwork, dried fruit, spices, clothes, wool, skins, Berber carpet, leatherwork, ironwork, jewellery and more. Some souks of note include the Rue du Souk Smarine which leads into the Place Rahba Kadima, where a slave market was once held (it remains an important commercial site). There are also a few apothecary shops here and there. There will be time for bargaining! Next we will visit Djemaa El Fna. This traditional meeting place for peasants and merchants from the Sous region, the High atlas and the South, has become the heart of Marrakech. In the mornings this large square is crowded with fruit and spice sellers, Guerrab with their leather water bottles and metal drinking cups, basket sellers, ironmongers and barbers. In the afternoons come to the Gnaoua dancers descended from former Guinean slaves, musicians, storytellers, snake charmers and entertainers with performing monkeys.
