Full description
Enjoy a walking tour with a difference, as your guide curates a journey through the markets based on your shopping needs. Meet your local guide who has the inside track on the best vendors and stalls in the old walled city district of Medina. Tell them which items you would like to shop for. They will then create a personalized itinerary for the whole group across the 3-hour tour. Set off for your walk among the labyrinth of small alleys. Shop for small souvenirs and basic needs, or for artisanal items made the traditional way. Visit the workshops and see crafts like leather, iron or woodwork, as well as embroidery, weaving or ceramics. Let your professional guide teach you the art of negotiation with the vendors. Learn a few key phrases in Arabic as you experience shopping the traditional, local way.

This tour is worth every penny. We had Ishmail (nickname: Sharif) as our tour guide. We thought he will just accompany and help us with shopping but he told us the rich history of the market. We went to trusted shops that sells original and hand-made products. He even helped us to get discount and ask us to take photos of some places. We felt secured around him and he even made recommendations where to eat and exchange money. We had some snacks together and it just feels like you are with a friend. We highly recommend Ishmail.

There were only two of us on our tour with our guide Youssef. He gave us a lot of useful tips about Marrakech and led us to a large shop where you could buy all the souvenirs your heart desires. Our guide also negotiated the price for us with the seller and got a good price for us. Of course you could have gotten the things a little cheaper, but we were glad to have help on our first trip to the market and to pay a fair price.

We had the most wonderful experience, we saw so many places in the souks. Our guide was so knowledgeable about Marocco and its history. He was very kind, and went with us to the best stand for a Maroccan mint tea and traditional pancake, delicious!! He also negotiated the price for us when we wanted to buy something so we didn’t overpay (there was no pressure to buy anything btw). He knew everyone in the souks, and everyone was so kind and welcoming to us when we wanted to look at things. We were treated with the utmost warmth and respect, and chatted the morning away about Marocco, his home and our home. Do not look any further, this tour is the best!!
