  • We were out with our guide for 3 hours in the sous, it was an experience, next year again. The sellers not at all intrusive.

  • Seeing Marrakech was one of those things I wanted to do for years... The disappointment was so much. I'm not going to dwell on the reasons but I use this post to help those who will visit the city... Don't let anyone get near you. If they tell you that the road is closed, that the gardens are closed, that the market is closed is NEVER TRUE. Although it says a guy with a travel guide style badge and that therefore might seem credible. In the road that led to our riad we were assaulted. My boyfriend who is all but puny or small, was pushed to the wall and took a punch on the chest because they wanted money, in the end they were satisfied with 40 euros. Every night you went out from the riad there were boys or men who were helping you and trying to get you where they wanted them. It was a nightmare for me. The Médina is really dirty and dangerous. My advice is to stay in a nice riad outside the Médina where the situation is very different.
