Just as I imagined. Dirty, busy, seedy and mysterious. A must stop in Tangiers. Could have walked around there for hours looking at the stalls with breads, meat, fish , vegetables, fruits, nuts, olives and flowers.

Our hotel setup a tour guide, who basically walked us through the medina very quickly, to many places, giving us a very high level overview of the place, not much of the history. Then he took us to a rug story "to learn how they are made" The show of wares and explanation was actually good. If you do decide... More

Did a few hour visit to old town of Tangier during visit on cruise ship. There isn't so much to see - mainly narrow alleys with some shops and few restaurants. There are also plenty of local young men guiding you around (not official guides) and they will get upset if you don't want to follow them. At the end... More

The medina is the old walled city located on the edge of Tangier. It is just a 10min walk from the ferry. The streets are narrow and wind this way and that. We stayed at a B&B in the medina and our hostess showed us around and introduced us to some locals. Many of the houses that the local people... More

Luckily we got to experience the Kasbah and the Medina with a private tour guide. The maze of narrow streets was incredible and the architecture unrivaled. The market itself was teeming with activity and while there were lots of touristy items to purchase, there were also a number of sellers of quality handicrafts.

This is quite similar to souks throughout the Middle East - a labyrinth of alley ways with countless merchants and stores selling produce, spices, leather goods, jewelry, souvenirs, etc. Not particularly unique or nice, but it is something you really must visit if you have come this far.

The Medina is an amazing experience of Allahudeen and Sinbad and the lifestyle of medieval Islam. The aroma and hustle and bustle of people shopping and tourist enjoying the subtleties of a culture that creates a great holiday and experience of many years gone by. With winding and steep steps and non ending pathways create an enigma of mystical proportions... More
