The streets of Marrakech are so narrow in some places that travelers usually get lost in the maze. A big part in losing track of their whereabouts comes from many teenagers, who are actually misguiding the tourists on purpose.
They are showing opposite directions when recommending the way, just to “rescue” the traveler five blocks away, twenty minutes later—in exchange for a few bucks. These little gangs of 12 year-olds are actually competing with each other for how much money they get when “rescuing” a tourist.
How to avoid:
Always have a local map. With that, be confident in your walking and go in the opposite direction if you feel the kids are pulling this prank.
Make your friends and family aware of this scam by sharing it, using the buttons provided.
