If you're in Fez, don't waste the money on the day trip or bare in mind that the medina is closed on Friday's and when that's closed there's really just a couple of gates and a horse stable to go see (stable / grainary is sort of interesting, costs 10DH, a guide will automatically take you around and then ask...

This madina buzzes at night. The store keepers are fair with their pricing, not taking advantage of u as a tourist. Must taste their sweets

I would definitely recommend going around the Meknes Medina on a day trip while you are visitng Fes. Great history and architecture. Stop and get lunch and spend the day enjoying such great surroundings.

An interesting maze of little alleys that take you around the higher part of town. Filled with interesting stores that sell any kind of product.

Tour group stopped here on the way to Volubilis & Fes. The visit was great as the local guide took us on a walking tour of the Bab Mansour gate to the city, walking past the Mausoleum & the Royal Palace. Certainly worth stopping for a visit.

We enjoyed this medina experience as it was not as "hard" as the one in Marrakech. The pace is slower and the things to see in the square are more interesting including the music played by locals. The souks are a lot cheaper to buy from as they are catering more for locals than tourists. The Gate is wonderful.

Nice but other medina's are more variated. So when you have seen more, not really an extra. Museums are overrated in guidebooks. Renovation is not done yet.
