Day 3: Fes Tour
We will enjoy all that Fes has to offer, a guided city tour to visit the old Medina of Fes; a particularly exciting experience because when you enter the sprawling labyrinthine alleys you feel like you have stepped back in time. Donkeys and mules are the only form of transport in these steep, narrow streets. Delicious scents come from the souk, where perfumes and spices are traded. In contrast, however, the most appalling stink emanates from the leather tanneries, where men often stand up to their waists treating leather in noxious baths, in much the same way as has been done for centuries – don’t let this put you off visiting there too; ethnic leather goods make great souvenirs!.
