Different world. It's lovely!!! Experience it! The culture! Make sure you haggle. Be aware of the henna ladies. THEY WILL GRAB YOUR HAND! Just politely pull your hand back!

Very busy square in centre of Marrakech. Street vendors can be in your face but they're just trying to get your business. Watch when ordering food as they'll bring breads and olives to your table and expect you to pay for them. If they do...More

Hi there. We went on this tour by ourselves. It is very easily done and you actualy don't need a guide for Jemma el Fna. Easily accessible during a day/night. Have fun.
