Owner description: The upper old part of Algiers has interesting Moorish houses, minarets and old citadel.

The Kasbah is an awesome place to learn about the history of Algiers and Algeria, which cannot be grasped without a serious discussion of the political situation throughout the times. This means a guide is essential, without a guide it's just old streets and dilapidated houses.

The best tour you can have in Algiers but you have to do it with a specialised guide to know what you are seeing and he can bringing to life for you...also so you can find your way back as it can be tricky if you do not have a guide...

Great place to walk around, very safe and reveals much of the history of the French occupation of Algiers.

We visited here a couple of times twice just the bottom where we explored the market and windy streets, you find a lot of the stuff the same as you walk around and not a lot there is 'made in Algeria'. unlike some markets people don't try to make you buy stuff but as a white english couple you do get stared at a lot.

One of the days we walked to the top.... would definitely recommend getting a cab as its easier.
you get some nice views from the top of the beach and city.
