Must do it but sometimes stressful. Too confuse, crowded, dirty, lots of vendors (screaming, touching,...). Snakes, monkeys, etc. So....unique but....be prepared.

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.
