Description

Marrakech shopping tour is a unique experience as the old city was the largest market for trade in Africa open to the world since the Almoravids (1040-1147) conquered Spain in the 11th century. Medina souks are classified among the biggest and the most beautiful of Morocco. We find of everything there: small business sector (crafts), to cook, pottery, jewels, spices, slippers, clothing and more still.


Before starting your Marrakech shopping tour, take the time to explain your interests to your guide so that he can create a personal itinerary and make you discover the best of the treasures of Marrakesh.

During your Marrakech shpping tour to the souk, you can visit craft workshops and observe local craftsmen making leather bags, slippers, carpets ... and many other handmade products. Also your guide will teach you the art of negotiation, with some Arab keywords and phrases that can make a big difference when it's time to buy.

During your visit, your guide will propose a break and invite you to have a glass of mint tea in a café in the Medina.

Even if the main part of your purchases concentrates around souks and around medina, the modern part of the city and the district of Guéliz do not miss either good addresses. You will find there mainly art galleries; shops specialized in the decoration, the leather store or the fashion, as well as the big luxury signs. Contrary to the medina, the prices are systematically shown there and non-negotiable.
