Good trip however would suggest booking a reputable guide to take you on a tour. I would also suggest that from the start you agree with the guide not to take you shops that his friend owns. It will save you time and money!!

Fes Medina is exotic. It is confounding. It is intriguing. Mesmerising. But don't attempt a tour without a guide. You could be lost for ever! Take a camera with a huge storage capacity. Be weary of your tour guide who insists on you visiting every shop where he gets a commission from. Be very careful where u eat from. Have... More

I prepared myself by reading all of the bad reviews of the Fez Medina. Consequently, I was so surprised and happy to have only positive experiences in the Medina over three separate visits. I found the streets of the Medina very clean in the major shopping areas and only some litter in the other areas. There were no bad smells... More

Wonderfull maze of old, narrow streets. Local tour gide is strongly recommended. A tour should take at least 6 hours.

Loved this Huge untouched Medina....felt I was transported back in time!! stayed in a Riad right in the center of the Medina which was perfect as I could soak up the atmosphere the moment I woke till that night. Its worth getting a guide as its very easy to get lost or end up right where you started!! Fes Medina... More

The old medina is very pintoresque but the touts and hawkers do not let you alone for a minute, taking away your enjoyment. It is a pity, and I have heard many other tourist sharing the same concern.I hope the City Council and the police will put a stop to it

The medina of Fes is spectacular, mind-boggling and totally overwhelming. I'd like to think we are good explorers, with a very good sense of direction, but here, we had to be prepared to get lost...in a good way. My caution is to ensure when you're staying at a riad that they meet you at an easily accessible location (where a... More

We stayed in the medina at a lovely Riad during our visit and have really enjoyed ourselves. We're near the Blue Gate, which I would recommend, because there are lots of nice places to eat and little shops. It's very convenient to get around from here. We will return!
