We were a lot of people (over 20), so it was sometimes difficult to follow the guide in the narrow streets. I didn't always understand everything acoustically either. I would prefer a tour in a smaller group.

Ismail gave some background information about the Souks and showed us places we had not discovered on our own. He also explained typical games and traditions on the night market which was really interesting.
