Full description
Meet your guide in front of your riad or hotel and then journey to Bab Boujloud, one of the ornate gates which welcome travelers into the Medina. Visit ancient buildings such as Meders of Bou Inania, El Attarine, (two prominent Koran schools), and the University and Mosque of Karaouine. Admire the harmonious geometrical details which adorn these magnificent buildings. Learn about traditional artisan work at the Nejjarine Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts. See where artisans employ techniques passed down from generation to generation in order to make tools, carpets, furniture, and musical instruments.

After a lunch break at one of the hundreds of phenomenal restaurants in the Medina, make your way to one of the city’s famous tanneries. Observe the workers from a lookout and see how leather has been processed for centuries. Talk with a tanner and get in-depth insight into the different steps of the tanning process. You may even end up haggling for a bag or a new belt.

Venture outside the Medina where the Royal Palace lies, and walk through its large plaza lined with palm trees. End your tour with a trip to the Bab Fettouh cemetery, where you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of the city, the hills, and the expansive sky.

Our guide was friendly, very knowledgeable and organised a great tour which went beyond our expectations. Not only did we get a great tour of the Médina but he also organised a car ride to the Palace, the Jewish Quarter (Melah) and to a Fort on a hill overlooking the whole Médina.

I recommend this tour if my friend goes to Fez. The guide is very kind,and you can go around efficiently in a short time. I booked the night before the tour, but we immediately received e-mail and politely responded to me. I could enjoy and I am grateful to be a very good trip.

A very good way to see the highlights of the Fes Medina. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, he even offered to take photos. The tour is really customized to what you want, so in my case I did not want to do any shopping so we did not do that.
