Travel Tips from people who've been to Fes
get lost on the medina.
they try to make us believe that we need a guide to go around the medina but it's not true. the only thing they will do is go around with you to the shops where you don't want to by carpets. The restaurants they advice are the most expensive ones.
the best to do in fes is to get lost on the medina and try the most simple places to eat.
if you can, choose an comfortable hotel because you will need it to rest from the hot and movement of the medina.
when i was there i choose one of the less expensive hotels from the "Guide Routard" and can say that it was difficult not to have a clean and fresh room to rest.
from my experience, the "Guide Routard" as better tips then the lonely planet, so, if ou can read in french, choose the french guide to go around marroco.
don't forget the hammam but don't let those guys make you a massage, they are so violent that you can regret it to the rest of your stay in the country.
