Casablanca Private Full-Day Trip to Fez

1. Casablanca Private Full-Day Trip to Fez

After your pick-up in Casablanca at your hotel or at the harbor, you'll start the drive of about 3 hours to the holy city of Fez, where you will meet your guide.  Start the visit at Bab Boujloud, one of the gates which lead into the medina. Visit some of the beautiful ancient buildings such as the Madrasa Bou Inania and El-Attarine, Koran schools for religious studies, and the University and Mosque of Al-Karaouine. Visit the Nejjarine Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts and discover traditional tools, carpets, furniture and musical instruments in a beautifully restored caravanserai.  After a lunch break in one of the hundreds of restaurants in the medina, continue to the famous tanneries, where the leather is still processed as it was hundreds of years ago. Observe the workers from a lookout, and learn about the different workings, and even bargain for a new bag or belt afterward.  Outside the medina lies the Royal Palace with its large plaza lined with palm trees. Last, but not least, drive up the hill to the cemetery Bab Fettouh, and enjoy the panoramic view over the white sea of houses of the medina. After your visit, your driver will meet you for the drive back to Casablanca.

What people are saying about Casablanca

I will start with the only con, so that travelers can know in advance and be clear: If you are not looking to shop, you should ask to skip all of the craft stops. The demonstrations are ultimately sales pitches for mosaic, textiles, leather, bronze, and so on. While informative, they are also high-pressure situations no matter how often said there is “no pressure.” Our guide even stressed we could do what we wanted and could skip these as we went, that it was up to us, but we ended up going along because of politeness. If you are traveling to Fes to shop til you drop, ignore this because you’ll love it. We’re just not shoppers. That out of the way: both driver and guide were exceptional. Clean transport, courteous and knowledgeable service. The tour of Fes and all of the history was the real highlight — along with the locals lunch option we went with (rather than the fancy lunch he said was possible). This was a good value, for sure, just be clear and firm with your interests.

Excellent guide. Well worth the money. Medina in Fes is a must visit.
