Liked everything. The vendors are very nice and do not push you to buy. We bought a beautiful leather jacket and are very happy with it. Bargain hard and they will come down. But do it with a smile and you will get far.

Dar fes medina was like home away from home. The owner( Mohammad) and his team were great hosts. Dar is tastefully done up and the service is of very high quality. No wonder all people staying here were so happy. Sad to leave but we must. Repeat trip is on the cards. Thank you.

Dating back to the 12th century this medina is easily the best in the country. With all kinds of small businesses, food stalls, mosques and even a stunning madras yo can happily get 'lost' here for as many days as you want

I have been to Fez many times, but never in December. I highly recommend it. You can actually take your time and look around without being caught up in the crowds. The vendors are eager to deal, no waiting in line for a restaurants and the weather is perfect.

A plethora of history lives within the walls of this medina and definitely worth spending a day walking around to take in the sights and sounds.

One of the biggest car free medinas in the world. Very raw with lots of animal parts (heads, hoofs, livers, and things you can't identify). But also great leather, slippers, trinkets, tajines, and other souvenirs. Plenty of good restaurants, cafes, tea shops and stalls.

We haven to many, many countries and particularly like markets. Having read reviews warning how big and complex the medina of Few is, we booked a guide. In 6 exhausting hours we covered ancient school, university and mausoleum; ceramics, tannery, fine weaving and copper work; lunch at a local eatery for about €8 for 4 people, and a detailed tour...

We spent a full day visiting this beautiful, full of life, and back in time Medina. You can find anything you want/need here. Leather products, cloth dying, huge assortment of dates, olives and meats. Tile making factory is work of art. If you want to get lost, go to the medina without a guide. You will never be able to...

Announced as the oldest and biggest medina in the Arabian World, the medina of Fez clearly deserves the title. There the ancients costumes seams more preserved been the most traditional place in all Moroccan big cites we visit (as well as the craziest!).
