Small Shopping, Happy Shopping in Marrakech
Are you curious about craft?
Do you want to get closer to Artisans in Marrakesh?
Are you looking for normal shopping for small souvenirs and basic needs?
Are you leading a research about craft and The Moroccan Heritage when it comes to handmade artisan items?
If the answer is YES then this tour is for you!
Because of my background as a descendant of a family of artisans and my long experience with the Artisans I will open the door for you. The experience will include visiting workshops in the Souks, markets like leather, ironwork, dying area, wood workshops, embroidery and weaving. . .
With few landmarks, you will get lost in the souks with narrow alleys, sneaking and winding and constantly branching. Traditionally each area is known for a specialty and has a name but with en expanding market and people are free to produce what they want there is a tendency in the past years for a marriage of goods to satisfy a growing demand.
A tale of the story of every craft will be delivered!
- Visit The Black Smith and Metal Work area
- Visit The Leather area
- Foundouks where artisans produce crafts in tinny rooms
- Visit The Spices, Herbs area. With the Moroccan Argan Oil and its derived beauty products and creams
- Visit different shops designed for your interests

The tour by Mehdi was everything we could have asked for! His knowledge of the history of Marrakech and the local area was exceptional. We felt that we were shown every part of the culture within the Souks. The tour was tailored to incorporate things we wanted to see or find, such as a traditional Tajine pot and some Moroccan mint tea. He was friendly with all the locals and this meant we were given an insider experience. Would 100% recommend, a first class experience. Not to be missed!
