Old slummy seedy streets, very evocative

Found Ibn Battutas memorial which was a highlight. Tangiers is the real deal. One day s enough to see and get a feel for it.

Lots of twists and turns. Nice and clean. Very friendly and varied small shops. Lots of colour, beautiful things to buy. Not too much hassle from the shop owners.

Even though it felt less crowded than other medinas, we still were boddered by a youngster that wanted to show us how to find the museum, which was "just follow this road, straight a head". hardly worth the trouble. As it was raining there weren't boddered by any one else. I would suggest, that there are far more interesting medinas... More

A taste of old Morocco. So enjoyed wandering the narrow alleyways of the medina which dates back to the 14th century. Be careful on the cobblestones! Good walking shoes a must. We were fortunate to visit when the Berber women were selling their wares at the market which added to the experience.

Such an expansive market that it is easy to get lost or miss some interesting nooks and crannies. It is vast!

This area of twisted alleys with shops, street sellers, handcraft workshops, boutique hotels, and tiny restaurants is full of character and characters. It is also home to some residents who go about their daily lives. It really gives you the feeling of old Morocco. The smell of spices mixes with freshly baked bread as call to prayer sounds from a...

The Medina is wonderfully hectic but small so there's absolutely no need for a private tour when you can just wander about at your own pace.

Took the ferry from Tarifa, Spain to Tangier for a self-directed walk-around, just two 60-somethings hoping for a safe and doable adventure on our own. A fellow named Faoud came up to us as we walked down the ramp. Yes, he was insistent and initially we said...What? NO. But we thought again..and said OK, prove to us you're legit! He... More

This could have been better for us on our own, but on a guided tour we followed our guide like sheep,- with eager streetsellers tailing us along the alleys. Have seen more interesting medinas in other countries. Being in Tangier it is worth a visit at least.

Typical medina in any Moroccan city. Not exactly the one you want to spend time at. Visit only for grocery and local food. The restaurants have English/French menus are usually 3 to 5 times more expensive.
