Just got back from an absolutely delightful 18 day coach tour of Andalucia (Spain) and Morocco . Exploring the labyrinthian alleys of Fes with El Janah Hassan our guide was an experience that cannot be forgotten. In fact, that goes for the entire tour that included Granada, Cordoba , Seville, Marrakesh, Rabat and Tangier. Will recommend to anyone , Muslim, Christian or Jew, who genuinely wishes to have his or her veil of misconception of the other removed. The danger is that each may end up embracing each other.

As I mentioned in my review for Desert Dream4x4, I love this city!
I don´t know why, but it swallowed me, and I definitely have to come back and experience more.
Especially the medina (see my text about it in my other review) made me a Fes-lover, and when I walk through - comparable quiet - Linz now, I see all this well organized chaos. Almost not understandable for european eyes, but all makes it special sense, like it works in a huge colony of ants. Everybody has his place there, and works and lives in this amazing cobweb of Fes.

Come and see for yourself!

Have fun exploring the incredible maze of streets some so small you may have to turn sideways to pass through. There are some signs that help point you to the sights or hire a guide but realize that he will take you to lots of shops hoping for a commission.

another special spice to life to have visited this World heritage ancient medina in 2003 with locals who used to live and trade in the medina and meet their friends and colleagues here.
Had been back for a few visits but after a 7 year break it was excellent to return recently for another roam around with a dear Moroccan travelling companion, take lots of photos, visit the Bouanania medersa that all the previous visits had been shut for renovations, have lunch at a locals food stop, buy my fave made-for-Ramadan sweet biscuit things, buy lovely dates (from all my present MOroccan connections home area of Rissani and Erfoud!).
You can buy a map for 20 dirham to help you get some bearings but don't be surprised if you get lost - but take that as an opportunity to experience the wonders of this old place where people have lived for the past 1200 years or so!

There is a lot of hustle here such as if you stop to look at any wares that catch your eye but this is a centre traditionally known for quality craftsmanship of leather, woodwork, metalwork and textiles. Just be firm and stand your ground - the prices will always start as a test so expect them to be elevated and in need of dividing by a third or a quarter!
