I would like to hear from other travellers who had a pleasant experience wandering through the Fes Medina without a guide and without getting scammed.
While I would love to wander and get "lost" in the Fes Medina for a few hours on my own, I'm afraid that experience is going to be ruined by persons offering guiding services who won't take "no" for an answer and who will keep following. Just thinking about this stresses me out. It seems the only way to avoid this is to hire an official guide through my riad, as "protection" against these persistent would-be guides. Am I correct in this assumption?
