  • Fez Medina Guided Tour

    1. Fez Medina Guided Tour

    After a pick-up at your hotel or riad in Fez, head out on a guided tour of the medina, one of the world’s largest walled-in cities. Explore the narrow streets lined with shops selling fresh fruits, spices, intricately woven Berber carpets and numerous other art and craft items from Morocco. Visit the Quaraouiyine Mosque, founded in 859 by Fatima el Fihri and the Andalusian Mosque dating back to 860 (note that non-Muslims are not permitted to enter). Take in other sites including the Nejjarine Fountain, the Bouaanania Medersa, dating from the 13th century and the Batha Palace, which is now a museum of arts and traditions.

    We had a lovely experience. Our guide Ahmed is a cheerful and helpful man full of energy, proud of Fez. He is probably the best tour guide in Fez. We had a lot of fun and learned many things. This tour is perfect for getting an overall view of Fez, with a focus on the medina ofcourse. On your own, it is impossible to see the whole medina and its surroundings, let alone find your way in the medina. Therefore, I can really recommend this tour! To the team: thanks again from Abdul, Basma, and Jamila (Gregory, Lieselotte, and Laurence).

Amazing full day tour of Fes. I really enjoyed learning in depth about the history of the city, visit several different artisans, go to a scenic viewpoint that I wouldn't have found on my own, and get a thorough visit of the maze that can be the old Medina. Thanks to our guide and driver, it was an unreal day!
