What people are saying about Fes

Everything as arranged. The best thing I've found about acquisitions on Get your Guide is the quick response to queries and requests. There was no “pre-ready” route I requested and they quickly complied. The day before, I asked him to change the departure time and they promptly responded. The driver was very safe, he drives very well. Very polite. The guide and Chefchauen were wonderful! Unfortunately I don't remember his name right now. I highly recommend

It's a great experience to learn and cook traditional Moroccan dishes. It was also very unique opportunity to talk to the chef to learn more about fes and Morocco culture. We really enjoyed the cooking class and we thought we cooked the best tajine ever! Highly recommended.

Such good food! The people were so nice and greeted me well! This is worth every penny knowing you’re leaving with a full belly! The palace itself is superb with exquisite decorations

Very punctual early guide. Then we spent a great day, rich with a professional guide, sympathetic, not counting his time. In short, very beautiful person.

The Nabil guide was great. He fought her a lot about the city, Islam and culture. Helped us negotiate in many times. Took us in all places we wanted.
