Hi and a big welcome to the largest Medina in the world. My name is Abdou. I was born and raised in Fes, Morocco. I'm an authorised and qualified tour guide. I also hold an M.A. degree in English, which is very crucial to pass the information to my guests with great fluency and ease. Fes is a mysterious and fascinating city with a lot of hidden secrets; and I'm very passionate about sharing these secrets and events with my guests.  I not only have a broad knowledge of Fes history, traditions and culture, but I have also designed a tour whereby my guests will be involved in sharing these values with locals; which they wouldn't be able to do if they were on their own. I take tourists through the  back and very narrow twisting alleyways which are not listed in GPSs and Maps. In this tour, you will discover the gems of Fes and find out the incidents and events that took place in every corner.

About the tour

Jump with me into a time machine and travel 1200 years back in History. My name is Abdou Rahim. I was born and grew up in the historical car-free medina of Fes. I'm a Professional Tour Guide (licensed by the Ministry of Tourism). I love to show tourists our historical sights and attractions, but most of all, l love to tell them why they are important, to relate relevant stories and events to these sights. I like to capture their attention and make them feel as though they are part of the story.

l have met tourists from all parts of the world , which helped me discover and understand their cultures, traditions, and customs. It taught me how to deal with them with courtesy and respect.

 Equipped with a fluency in English, a good knowledge of history and a fair sense of humour, your FES tour with me will be is FEScinating.

Great Tour!

Abdou is incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining. He will speak about the history and culture of Fes. He will take you to all of the important spots, including the tanneries and other artisan cooperatives and there will be no pressure to buy.

Overall, a great tour!!

I loved the tour. The guide was personable and informative and helped us see an insiders view of Fes. He keeps the group sizes small which makes a huge difference in overall experience. His English was also the best we have heard in Morocco. Would recommend booking this tour.

Abdou’s tour was highly exceptional!! He is a very personable person and he spoke English super well. His knowledge of the city was also excellent. I could tell that he is very passionate in what he does. He took us all over the Medina and took the time to explain the history behind it. We went to many places in the Medina and ended the tour at the tannery. He also offered to walk us back so we didn’t get lost in the Medina. I didn’t feel pressure to buy anything at the places we stopped at. It was an overall authentic and good experience! I highly recommend it!
