In the medina it is almost impossible to avoid the crowds. People are very friendly. If you get lost, ask a shop owner, the older the better.

Shopping in Fes is more laidback and relaxing compared to Marrakech. You will not be harassed by people desperate to sell their wares to tourists. The alleys of Fes old medina is filled with artisans (who I believe should be highly paid for their unique handicraft skills) who sell the work of their labour. One that stuck out was this guy who carved intricate Arabic designs and handwriting on marble slabs.
The shopowners are friendly and will always ask where you are from. Do not be surpried if they greet you in your native language.
The people in Fes and Morocco for that matter speak fluent Arabic and French. Some also speak Spanish and Italian.

We got a guide through the hotel, but was quite disappointed with the service - felt it was a tour of the local shops, and I think this is quite usual with most guides.

Anything, really! The rumors have it that camel burger is great (but I'm vegetarian, and Berber Eggs are delicious, too). Buy fruit and nuts on the street!

It's the whole deal, really. Just get lost in the tiny streets (which is not difficult) or take one of the colored paths through. Don't forget to visit Café Clock.

It's an oldest, medieval city, and you can feel that. Berber culture is different from arabic. It's very raw.
