The Marrakech Souks are great fun to explore whether on your own or with a guide. For centuries craftsmen and merchants have congregated in specialist souks including areas for metalworkers, leatherworkers, dyers, carpets, spices, traditional medicines and many others.
There was a time when the persistent attention of hustlers and self appointed guides made it difficult for the faint hearted to explore and enjoy the famous Marrakech Souks. Today the whole area is effectively policed by specialist Tourist Brigade Police and tour guides are licensed. Wander at leisure before returning to the comfort of your Marrakech Riad base.
