We got a tour guide from the tourist office in Fes. He was very knowledgeable, navigated the 9400+ streets with ease and showed us loads of things we wouldn't have seen on our own.

On our trip to Morocco we went to Fez for a day to visit the oldest library. The taxi dropped us at the gates of the Medina and told us to follow the road straight back. Well that was mission impossible. There are no straight roads in the Medina. It reminded me of the old movies where people run through... More

We went on a tour of this Medina after being told by many people, not to venture alone the first time. After going, I now understand why! You will see mixed reviews on this because it really does depend on your personality. So know: It is HUGE- it can be very overwhelming, the alleys are very narrow, they seem to... More

There is so much to do and see in this Medina that you can spend an entire day and just scratch the surface. You can look, buy or eat. It is true Morocco.

When I traveled to South America and Central America, every town has a square or a plaza. Here in Morocco, every town has a medina. I am writing this after we have visited a few Medina. This Medina in Fes is 15 kilometers of narrow walls, 9,000 streets, with 40,000 dead ends. It is the largest labyrinth and do not... More

A lot of people try to sell something to you. Very uncomfortable and crowdy. In Rabat much better!!! Ugly smell of unfresh meat... disaster.

It was quite rainy when we visited but we still enjoyed the beautiful architecture that is displayed behind the walls of this fascinating place. It is the most authentic and culturally fascinating place in Morocco.

Just spend a day or two exploring the various locations in the medina. Get to know the shops, foods, tea & coffee houses. I prefer to do so without a guide but I did tour the medina with a guide one day --- my family opted for a guide -- so we got the history - the hidden away places,... More
