Very nice tour :)

We had a very nice trip with Abdul .... he spoke German very well and we could say what we wanted to see and what not. About the medina, the craft, the bakery, the local breakfast (bean soup), the lunch in a local (not tourist) restaurant, the many streets with their countless shops, the Koran school and the much information from Abdul, close this tour an experience. Whether you wanted to buy something was up to you and the locals were all very friendly. The city tour by car to the viewpoint and the Royal Palace rounded off the whole thing. It was a very successful day for us.

Great tour in Fes - book it!

We were in Fes just for a short time, and liked this full day tour very much. Our guide had a good knowledge of the City and history and we learned a lot. The Driver for the Transfers was also good and everything was as we wished for! It was even possible to tell them our wishes and to Change the day a Little. Very recommendable, if you are in Fes for a short time but still want to see everyting! Would do it again.

A very good tour that has captured all the essential elements

This tour not only recorded the historical sights, but also presented the various crafts still represented. Stands of daily needs were also presented and daily life processes presented. The guide was able to answer all questions competently, the tour took place in English, the communication was absolutely problem-free. Note: our guide said goodbye to prayer during the lunch break, we have observed this several times, but not everyone does it. On Friday afternoon at the time of the Friday prayer z. B. in Meknes all shops were closed, museums and restaurants were open.
