Quality Verified Registered on March 01, 2020

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.

Tour description

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 understand their cultures, traditions, and customs. It taught me how to deal with them with courtesy and respect.
During this tour, we're going to stop by the famous historical sites of Fes such as:
Al Quaraouiyine Mosque and University ( from outside)
Sidi Moussa  or chouara leather Tannery
Al-Attarine Madrasa (from outside)
 Place Seffarine
Fabrics Dyers square
Moulay Idriss Mausoleum
Kifah kissariya
Al Attarine Stree
The tour will end at the main road leading to the Blue Gate. (Talaa Kbira)
Equipped with a fluency in English, a good knowledge of history and a fair sense of humour, your FES tour with me will be FEScinating.

We walked with Abderrahime through a “Time Machine,” from modern times, down, down through the centuries in the medina, to the beginning of the City of Fes in 808. The history along the way was so very interesting. From the beginning, we felt that Abderrahime was both a friend and a teacher. His English was perfect, and the tour was perfect. 10 out of 10!

Really loved the walk with Abdulrahime. He is knowledgeable, a great communicator with a good sense of humour. He organised and paced the tour very well - so we learned about the houses, the streets, the lifestyles and culture of Fes over centuries and understood how it had developed and how uNESCo is helping with the restoration of buildings . He spent more than 3 hours with us and made sure we had a great lunch afterwards. Really appreciated his generous, engaging way of being and cannot recommend him highly enough. No sales pitches at all! Thank you

Really excellent tour around Fes Medina. Abdul has perfect English and his knowledge of Fes is awesome. Highly recommend going on this tour if you have a chance. There was no going into shops and being pressured to buy. He recommended a restaurant at the end it was excellent and good value for money.
