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.

They were not at all 'touching' you or trying to insist you to buy something. They were friendly, curious of course, but when you said no, they left you alone.

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.

There is nothing like Fez back home. It's the oldest medina in the world, no cars, many cats and a complicated maze where they people who live there get lost!

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.

I would recommend to get taxis to go everywhere you need. The riad is at 2 min from the parking called "Ain Zlaten" ( keep the name in mind). For reference, the price of a journey from the parking to Fes station is 12 Dirhams and to the commercial centre ( Borj Fes), it is 8 dirhams.
