Everyone seems to have a friend of a friend who picked up an antique Louis XVI chair or Moorish chandelier in a backstreet for a song - and your chances of emulating them are much improved with two new guides. (Wanderlust)

If anything, the maps need a little more detail in street names (surrounding streets for reference) as it got a little confusing at times. We supplemented with another map though. It would also help in getting directions to Sidi Ghanem (outside the medina) by independent means. We hired a scooter (highly recommended) and couldn't find where to go once in the area so gave up as it was close to the shops' lunchtime closing.
However, this isn't enough to knock this book as it provided us with everything we wanted. As testament to the book's quality, I lent it to two other couples who stayed in the riad (we'd finished 6 out of 7 walks) and they thought it was great too. Also, our riad owner asked if he could buy it off me but instead we gave it to him as a gift. We'll likely buy another copy for our bookshelf and our anticipated return to amazing Marrakech.
