Know More about this tour

You will meet your guide in front of your riad or hotel in the morning. Start the day at Bab boujloud, one of the gates which lead into the medina. Visit some of the beautiful ancient buildings such as the Madrasa Bou Inania and El-Attarine, Koran schools for religious studies, and the University and Mosque of Al-Karaouine. Visit the Nejjarine Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts and discover traditional tools, carpets, furniture and musical instruments in a beautifully restored caravanserai.

After lunch break in one of the hundreds of restaurants in the medina, continue the tour to the famous Tanneries, where the leather is still processed the same as it was hundreds of years ago. You can observe the workers from a lookout and they will be glad to explain the different workings, step by step, if you are willing to bargain for a new bag or belt afterward. Be aware of the bad smelling of the furs and coloring goods.

Outside the medina lies the Royal Palace with its large plaza lined with palm trees. Last, but not least, drive up the hill to the cemetery Bab Fettouh, and enjoy the panoramic view over the white sea of houses of the medina.

Be returned to your hotel or riad afterward.

    Wonderful tour. Mohammed and the thee of us. This was a very comprehensive and very interesting tour. The walk through the Medina was wonderful. All of the stops were great and we did not feel pressured to purchase any items after seeing the crafts. These were not tourist traps. Special thanks to the driver who purchased our train tickets for the next day while we were on the tour, picked us up the next morning, drove us to the station and helped us with our bags. Super unexpected service. Great tour!

    I booked a full day tour of Fez for my best friend and myself, as we were only in Fes for 3 days and wanted to get the most out of our trip. Viator make sure that from the booking right through until the excursion actually happened went smoothly, I had made it clear that my friend and I were vegan, so wherever we ate we would hope would cater for us, and we didn't particularly want to see the tanneries either because it dealt with leather, my requests were noted and I had an email from a lovely lady Doris, to say that the guide would be made aware of all of this, which put my mind at rest. Mohamed was a fabulous guide, he loves his city and was proud to show us and tell us the rich culture and history behind the walls of the Medina and also other points around the city that are of equal interest. He is a true professional, and was obviously well known within the Medina, which is a huge Labyrinth and you can easily get lost in there, so a guide is 100 recommended. We also drove out to see the pottery factory which was fascinating, there was opportunity to purchase something but you never felt obliged. Mohamed also recommended a restaurant for us for lunch, and the food was delicious and VERY reasonable, we had a lovely vegan meal which we thoroughly enjoyed. We got caught out by a downpour in the afternoon but Mohamed soldiered on and continued to take us on the tour, seeking shelter from the heavy rain wherever he could he was a true gentleman and full of humour, we had an absolutely amazing experience and took plenty of photos. Fez is an amazing city, such rich culture and warm friendly people I thoroughly recommend it to anybody. Our driver was also lovely full of smiles and we felt safe in the car, as some of the Moroccan drivers seem to be a bit erratic however our journey was smooth.
    However, I just want to take the time to warn other people booking of what happened to us before our official tour.
    My friend and I were unfortunate enough to miss our official guide, who was waiting for us at reception, and a who we mistook for our guide a matter of him being in the right place at the right time and responding to guide? took us off into the Medina for two hours then left us in the middle of the Medina, it was at this point we realised we were that something wasn't right, so I emailed , and within minutes Doris was texting my phone, and explained that are guide and driver had waited an hour and a half for us and then gone and thought we weren't coming, I also had a call, were absolutely fantastic, and even though we were extremely late getting back to our Riad to meet our official guide, our tour still went ahead. It turns out the gentleman that took us around was probably just a local man with nothing better to do, and fortunately we were perfectly safe and nothing happened to us, however I urge anybody booking their tour to check the ID of the guide waiting for them, and also make sure they have some sort of paperwork on them to confirm they are who they say they are. We were just very naive and too trusting, which as two women in a strange City, albeit an amazing and friendly one, was a silly thing to do, however in the end the mishap added to our experience, and we have funny tales to tell forever, especially about the Hand of Fatima which if you go on this amazing tour you will discover about yourself. So go ahead and book you won't regret it!
