I understand that most things are closed in Fes on Friday's. Our hotel suggested that we go to the mid Atlas mountains for the day. He said it should cost about 75 euros. Is that area interesting? Does that seem like a fair price? Does anyone have any other suggestions on things to do on a Friday.
On another note I would like to briefly explain my day and wonder if this is normal. My wife requested a woman guide on the afternoon we arrived for the following day. About an hour or so later the owner said we were in luck and that she was from the tourist office. The arranged price was 400 dirhams. She said she was just interested in taking us to the sites and not for shopping. My wife indicated that we were interested in doing a little shopping and she said that would be fine. While we were walking through the Medina I noticed that our guide was always walking about 10 steps ahead of us.I assume this was because she was not a legal guide, but I never questioned her because at first I really liked her and found her quite informative. We ended up buying quite allot of stuff( I ended up getting the rugs for half the initial price from Dar Essad)) so I thought I did ok. Then towards the end of the day I said I would like to drive around the old city and the new city. She said a small taxi couldn't do this and only a driver could for 200 dirhams. I hesitantly agreed. As we were driving she told me to give her the money. I guess my question in did she get a cut of everything that we bought? Thanks in advance.
