Medina in Fes is absolutely stunning not only because it's the biggest old town in the Arabic world. In there you can find an incredibly big market where you could get everything, numerous tanneries and an awful lot of impressions. Here's how I saw Medina in Fes: www.fm1721.com/experience/africa/morocco/
Plan at least one whole day for discovering Medina! Also choose your tannery viewing carefully as there are lots of crooks in Medina.
Medina, Fes, Morocco
I have travelled a lot in Morocco, but one of my favorite experiences was the tour of the Fes medina set up by Morocco tours. My sister and I had a half day tour in great English, very detailed information about the history of the city and best of all- no pressure to buy things in the medina. Highly recommended.
In Morocco, we booked our daytrips and tours in Fes with Yomikha Morocco. They are an incredibly cool company based in Fes and operated by an Australian and Moroccan joint venture. These guys are full of integrity - no carpet selling - and true destination experts, as they understand the culture, people, and the language. We enjoyed Western standards with Moroccan understanding. It was totally rad. Our trip to Meknes and Volubilis was hassle-free and then we did a sahara trek starting out in Fes, so we avoided what a lot of travellers told us were aggressive rip-offs and touts in Merzouga. In our group were a number of solo women travellers and they told us about the horrors of going it alone in Morocco. We were glad to be on such a stress-free trip.
