Very interesting to see how the leather products are made. But the men will tell you that it's completely free (I confirmed this with him 2-3 times) and when you want to leave the place they will either make you buy expensive clothes or bags or give them money. We were threatened on the street and when I refused to give money several other men surrounded us and pressured into giving money. And when I gave up and gave the "guide" some money, he was even angrier because it was not enough! So, go ahead and visit the place if you have money to spare for a 3-minute tour :)

Don't accept any invitation on the street. Initially for free, but they will force you to pay an high price if you want to leave the place.

We did our homework and visited early morning, before it warmed up and got too smelly. But the smell was still bad, and there was very little going on so early. As soon as we got out of the taxi, we got "grabbed" and were given some mint to take the edge off the smell. We knew that it was possible to see the tanneries without a guide, but refusing was very difficult. We relented and were at least given an explanation of the whole complex, and were able to see it from above. We were then led into the shop, where we were shown carpets that we explained we were unable to buy, and then to the leather shop. Having already sussed the "slightly elevated" prices at the Artisanal Complex where you don't have to haggle, we were shocked at what was being asked here. I enquired of a belt which was similar to but no better than one I'd paid 100 dirhams (£8.50) for at the Artisanal, and they asked for 650 dh (about £60!) and would not drop below 300 dh. So I walked away. We were then pushed into the produce shop, where we agreed to pay 100 dh for two Argan products, but paid with a 200 dh note. They gave us 3 of the product and refused to give us any change, however much we argued. Not impressed. Then our "guide" met us outside the shop and asked for money. I gave him 50 dh, but he demanded double that "to help the co-operative". Marrakech has plenty of hustlers, but this was the worst experience of our whole visit. My advice is to steer clear of here - don't waste your time and money.

We were dropped outside by our taxi and we were going to go in to the Berberie Tannary but we some bloke got in our way and told us that he was the keeper?? Evidently in order to enter the premises you need to be a hosted ( or guided) by a keeper who shoes you round. He didn’t speak very good English but we got the gist. There was some issue as to whether there is such a thing as camel leather and were still none the wiser. We had to pay our keeper 100Dhms which is about 10€ or £8

The place it is very smelly, I would not recommend going unless you are very interested in going and see. There are no colors at all, the place smells really bad , the tour takes 2 min only, not much to do there, I would not recommend going there, especially if you have seen it in fes already. Be careful with people around there, we have been asked for giving to our ‘guide’ (not real guide) 20 dh each which we found a lot , so we end up giving him only 10 dh per person and he accepted it. the explanation of the place was really bad, so the only thing we had it was just seeing the place 2 min, I would not recommend visiting this place and expect paying for it, if you do not pay they will not allow you to enter. My guide also asked me to give him a little bottle of perfume that I was constantly smelling because apparently 10 dh per person was not enough money ! Be very careful, I would not recommend to go at all!! I do agree with all the bad reviews.
