  • Given that we had already had a government-certified tour of tanneries, ceramic and carpet artisans the previous day, we asked our guide to take us to the cultural sites and museums that we craved. We had to specifically ask him to return and to take us to an important historical museum that he passed over when we were near there a few minutes earlier with him. He did not seem to understand our fascination with the details of the museums artifacts, costumes , gardens and other historical remnants visible in the museum.

  • This tour was disappointing... the tour guide lied numerous times to suit himself... the tour ended in the middle of Fes far from our riad without any clue as to how to get back ... didn’t really learn much but watched the guide say hello to all of his friends as he made his way through the city...

  • Our tour guide Youniz was superb! He was very passionate about his job of sharing history of this ancient and magical city. He took us to the Royal Palace, through the Old Town Medina, the lively markets, and presented a view of the city that I'm sure we'd have never seen if left on our own. Perfect tour for the price!

  • Get to experience the best of Fez in a short time. Mohammed the tour guide is a real credit to Fez, very friendly, helpful and knowledgable

  • Our guide Momo was exceptional. We had a fantastic tour of the Medina. Especially interesting was the visit to the leather dying vats. We had to cut the tour short so that we could catch our train to Marrakesh. No problem: Momo got us there on time. Such a rewarding and educational experience to go through the Medina with Momo....rather than just roam around an buy stuff.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • I was the only person on this group tour, so essentially had a private guide. He was excellent! Very knowledgeable and, when he saw my interest in math, went into detail about why our numbers look the way they do and other math-centric stuff. He clearly knew his city and enjoyed sharing it. I strongly recommend this tour!

  • This is Must do tour if you have never been to Fez. It's difficult to know the right places to go to and the story behind them and especially really hard to walk around the Medina if no one is there to guide you. Our Guide Mohamed was wonderful, he was very patient and did not Rush the tour. He explained in details the History and the stories behind every place we visited. He was funny and highly knowledgeable. He took us to different shops to see how pottery, leather etc...were made without being asked to buy anything. We bought some things because we wanted to. He seemed like a respected man in the city, everyone was greeting him and no one bothered us. He also offered us water and a drink inside the Medina which was very much appreciated in Hot summer day.

  • I can partially recommend this tour. It is hard to get around on your own in the Medina of Fez, because it is really big. The Tour-Guide was friendly and answered all my questions. I have been on my own on this tour, what was not a problem.
    A problem was, that the tour has only been 2 1/2 instead of 4 hours. That was pretty sad, because it was quite expensive for a Moroccan tour guide. I have also been taken to different kind of shops were the guide wanted me to buy things, but I did not want to. He got kind of angry with me and explained me that it is normal and useful to buy things in the Medina and so on. I just did not want to buy the things he showed me because for me it was not a shopping tour. He talked to one shop owner and I felt like they were laughing about me, because I said that I do not have enough money to buy leather jackets. I did not expect that from a paid tour guide!
    I do not know if there is a better tour in Fez, but I would highly recommend to do a walking tour through the Medina, it is nearly impossible to see the good spots on your own. I am not sure if there is a tour in Fez without visiting any shops, maybe you will find one :D

  • A great way to see the Medina! Our tour guide was very informative and took us to all the places we wished to see!
