Medina Shopping Tour in Marrakech

    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in the early afternoon in the vibrant Djemaa el-Fna district of central Marrakech. Then, set off on foot into the maze of souks to begin your tour.

    Follow your guide through the busy streets, and visit at least five different artisan stalls that match your preferences. Meet with the sellers and tradespeople, and learn about their family businesses. Your guide will also help you sharpen your bartering skills in Arabic to pick up bargains.

    Perhaps head to a local leather shop, where row upon row of colorful, hand-crafted slippers, bags and jackets are for sale. Or perhaps go to a silversmith specialising in silver and beadwork from all corners of Morocco. Alternatively, visit to a carpet seller and browse the magnificent selection of vibrant rugs and carpets on offer. Enjoy fixed-price shopping here, and a discount with your guide.

    Other shops and stalls to visit include a herbalist selling traditional argan oils alongside local herbs and spices; ladies’ fashion outlets selling high quality caftan and silk; a lamp shop with a range of stylish table and floor lamps; and home stores offering kitchen ware and furniture.

    As you follow your guide through the markets of the medina, stop off to visit street workshops where skilled craftspeople demonstrate their trades. Watch a master potter turn a lump of clay into a beautiful pot, or a tile maker at work.

    Finish your tour with a visit to a cafe in the Dar el-Bacha district, where a refreshing cup of Moroccan mint tea and local sweets await — the perfect way to recoup lost energy.

    Please note: Your tour includes free delivery of large items to your hotel or riad in Marrakech.

    Urban Adventures advertises the best day ever, and for me and my friend they totally delivered. As two female students looking to participate in some serious retail therapy, we were very skeptical of everything around us. We took the tour on our second day in Marrakech. Our
