  • Great fun! I even saw one dyer with a deeply purple arm and with good grace and resignation he let me take a photo. Classic! You can see the process unfolding and the textiles waiting to be dyed or ha...  more »

  • The explanations provided by the Manager were informative but how do not say that this work is very painful, dangerous for the health of the employees, a branch of the Mint is offered before entering the hell of tanners Attention of not Drag and stay away I think this gives an ideas of the large tanneries of Fez today ' today the industrial work is trying to take over

  • The souks are a pretty incredible. So many are crammed into such a small spot yet it’s so easy to get lost in there. Haggle hard as they try and heavily rip you off and don’t bother following anyone anywhere, it will be a waste of time. Great experience
  • There are literally a billion things inside this maze and your eyes will have a hard time spotting it all. The souk is divided in areas such as metal, lighting, clothing, leather,... ask for a price and they definitely will tell you a ridicolously high price. Try to bargain with a starting price 20% of their price and be steady so you can meet them at 30 or 40%, definitely not more! Be cautious like anywhere else for pickpockets and people trying to guide you around for money. One golden tip: go on Friday which is couscous day for the locals as you will see that it is waaaay less crowded in the souks. (also not all shops open, around 80%)
  • Be careful wandering this area at night. We were trying to go to Jemaa El-Fna and eventually pass by this market, but a group of three young people tried to 'show us the direction' and led us to a quiet street, forcing us to give them some money. Shame. We were having such a good experience in Morocco but these things spoiled it.
  • Be careful to pass this road during the night. We were looking for a way to Jamaa el Fna and suddenly three young men offered to give direction to the place. At first they look nice, but then they will lead you to a quiet street and force you to give some money to them. It was unpleasant experience there. So, just stay careful when passing the street in the night.
  • Lots of interesting stuff to look at. Lots of people who want to sell you those things. I found the experience in the souks quite nice outside of those around Jemaa el-Fna. If you can find the folks who actually make some of the goods (dyed wool, leather, wood carvings and inlays) there are good deals to be had. Bargaining is an experience, but as long as you want what you are buying, it should be guilt free. If you're smart about it, you can get something nice that you can't get at home and/or for a lower price. I also found most of the sellers to be friendly. They are assertive, but will take no for an answer (again, outside of Jemaa el-Fna).
