Then we arrive at the "Plaza Dejamaa El Fna", the famous big square, to explore its surroundings and get a general idea of its history, as well as take a look at the traditional markets the "Souks", smell the various spices and a visit optional to a traditional cooperative to learn more about the trendy argan oil, plants and cosmetic products in a specialized store. Together we will navigate through the colorful labyrinths of the souk, helping you discover artisan places where you can see for yourself how local products are made and how different types of crafts are made. We will finish our tour and walk through the medina "the old city" to see the daily life of the local people and the impressive narrow streets in the heart of the medina.
