From the minute that Said picked us up at the door of our riad, I knew we were in good hands. So knowledgeable about the stories that surround this exotic city. Said's answers to our questions were thoughtful and informative, he tailored the day to suit our schedule. We appreciated the stops at historic sites and the artisan cooperatives. Morocco Trek Safaris kept us informed about our tour before our arrival and responded promptly to questions. We would recommend both our guide, Said and Morocco Trek Safaris most highly.
We were able to arrange to have this tour at a later time due to our train arrival which was very nice. Our guide Saiid was very knowledgeable. We loved stopping at the pottery area and bought a lot at the shop. It was informative and helpful to have a guide in the souks because people can be aggressive and lead you in the wrong area.
We spent a wonderful day exploring Fez with Mustafa. He provided a good overview of the history and culture of Fez and took us through the souks and also provided great lunch and hamam reccomendations. One of our best tours in Morocco!
A big Thank you to Mostafa for showing us the beauty and the history of Fez. He walked with us long hours with our slow pace. Mostafa has a great knowledge, very good English and kind and good heart. We wanted historical tour and we didn't feel pushed to buy anything. We had a great tour. Thank you again Mostafa
Our guide, Moustapha, was superb. He was knowledgeable and indefatigable and his enthusiasm was infectious. Our tour of the Médina and highlights outside it was one of the high points of our time in Morocco. Without a seeming agenda, we covered most of the must see attractions in Fes. We would heartily recommend him for anyone wanting a thorough introduction to the glories of Fes.
Booking with this company was rather easy and they were very accommodating. I especially appreciated that they agreed to my request for Mustapha as our tour guide (I had read previous positive reviews about him and I was hoping we would be lucky enough to have him as our tour guide)! We had a group of 6 (24-62 years old) and the whole day was very nice. They were prompt in showing up before 9:30am at our hotel ready to go for the day. And they had a nice vehicle large enough for all of us. I had done my research of Fes and had a list of places that I wanted to visit during the day. I showed this list to Mustapha at the start of the day and he made sure to visit all the locations and more. Mustapha has great knowledge about Fes and Morocco and speaks very good English. I HIGHLY recommend a tour guide when going into the Medina of Fes as it is very large and very easy to get lost. And I couldn’t have been happier with my choice to go with this tour and Mustapha as our tour guide.
This tour was focused on selling products from various vendors rather than an informative tour of Fes. Tour guide did not speak much of the sites we went to including the shrine of the founder of Fez and dumped us for an hour in a wood museum of all places and disappeared! We did not have a full day with the tour guide either. We felt pressured to by products from vendors that the guide took us to and in some instances the vendors begged us to buy things. We did not find this tour helpful or worthwhile.
Our guide was very personable and informative. We asked him many questions, a key benefit of a private tour, we learned a lot about Fez, the people and culture, the country. He made an effort to work with our pace and our interests, another benefit of a private tour. The first part of the touring involved driving to several locations and walking around, and we then ended up at one end of the medina, and we walked to the other end where our riad was. It was a full day tour, 7 hours, we had a great glimpse into Fez.
Fantastic private day trip of Fez. The guide was generous, amazing and very much flexible in terms of showing us around. The most enjoyable bit was the walk through the medina and the souks. We got a taste of everything what we hoped for to see in a day. Would surely recommend this tour.
We didnt think our guide did a good job of explaining things. We saw other guides explaining a lot at the sites, but ours just said a few things and wanted to move on! However, it was good to have a guide and car as we wouldnt have been able to see all the sites on our own! It was nice to visit the ceramic factory and the carpet place, but we did feel a bit pressured to buy and ended up buying things that we didnt intend to! Fez is a fascinating old place with a lot of history and a must visit while in Morocco!
