The best decision to make it as a tour so no fear of getting lost or approached intrusively by anyone inside there. Highly recommended and thanks to Kamal for the great experience!!

The tour and our guide Kamal were outstanding. Kamal is one of the most genuine and kindest guide I've ever come across. He knows the Fez medina and it's people inside out! Our day in Fez was the highlight of our amazing vacation in Marocco and Kamal played a really big part in that

The guide, Kamal, was very well informed and communicative. He shared necessary relevant information as we took the tour which he paced well. He did not rush us and took it easy giving us time to be on our own for a bit. Overall, a pleasant experience.
