Very busy and chaotic, but with so much going on. There are many shops selling local crafts, as well as clothes and shoes and leather goods. People expect you to haggle, so don't buy things without trying to lower the price. The orange juice and...More

Everyone knows it. Fun to visit for once. Interesting but it is not worth a second visit. Noisy, dirty flea market. Not much to buy but pleasant to explore and although very touristy it is still a place for locals

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.
