My husband and I have booked a week ina Riad in Marrakech in September. It will be our first time visiting marrakech and we are very much lookign forward to visiting a different culture, eating local food, soaking up the atmophere etc.
However after being told tales by several 'well-meaning' acquaintances of 'so-and-so who went to marrakech and was mugged/hassled/got food poisoning/insert other misfortune here' as well as some very unfavourable reviews on here in the Travel Guide section..we are now feeling a little apprehensive.
Is it really over-whelming? Will we feel contantly harrassed and badgered for money? I will of course be dressing modestly so not too worried about that element, more people not taking no for answer which many people on here mentionned in their reviews.
Please can someone reassure me?!
