  • 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).

What a fantastic introduction to Fes; including the new and old parts of the city which culminates in a walkthrough the medina with all its rich history amongst the complex streets and trade. Our guide Said has a depth of knowledge unrivalled as he explained the changes during the centuries of Fes and also Morocco. An excellent tour which is highly recommended and will make sure you get the best of the medina without getting lost.

What a wonderful, unforgettable experience. Ahmed our guide is such a lovely person, on top of being a very knowledgeable and helpful guide. He takes his work seriously and while he is with you, you have nothing to worry about. You are in good hands and he goes above and beyond to make sure your experience is a success. Shokran Ahmed!

We enjoyed it very much. I really liked that Kamal took into consideration our requests for skipping some stops (because we've been to too many similar coops on guided tours in other cities), brought us to a local spot for lunch because we just wanted a sandwich. Really informative tour. It really isn't tiring!

Great tour! Our guide Kamal was excellent and provided us with an amazingly interesting tour. Must do when you're in Fes!
