Logistics on staying in a riad in the medina

Jump to last reply

I know staying in a riad in the medina is a special experience that's been highly recommended. I've also read that when in the medina, it's best to be escorted by a hired official guide to eliminate other hustlers and touts. This is fine when I'm touring the medina.

However, this sounds like I'll be stuck inside the riad because everytime I get outside its door, I'd need a hired guide. I won't have the freedom to stroll around!

Also, I think riads offer dinner options but if I'm staying multiple nights, I won't necessary want to eat there every night, right? (I will have 4 nights each in Fes and Marrakesh.) If I want to dine in a restaurant close by, do I again need a guide to just walk to a restaurant?
