The American travel organisation, Spiced Destinations recently brought a small tour group to Morocco. On their visit they took part in a fund raising lunch for the Fez Medina Children's Library.
After a Medina tour and a visit to the library, the group had a lunch hosted at Riad Zany (home of The Vew from Fez) and a tour of the house featured in Suzanna Clarke's A House in Fez. Prior to embarking on their visit to Morocco Spiced Destinations had given every member of the group a copy of the book.

Spiced Destinations organise tours all over the world and stand out from a majority of travel companies because of their belief in ethical tourism.
Their generosity on this occasion was a welcome boost to the fundraising for the Medina Children's Library.
"The savvy travellers of the 21st century require more than just sightseeing. They look for experiences. They want to meet the local people and observe their rituals and even their day-to-day life’s habits. They also want to leave a positive impact and to know that their trip may have benefited some challenged local communities.” ~ Eitan Silberberg, Founder of Spiced Destinations
