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.

One of the best walking tours I’ve been on! The tour was very well done and Abdou prepared it very well. I really appreciated that he provided headsets. Through this walking tour, I learned a lot about the culture and history of Fes. Abdou answered questions very well and thoroughly. I enjoyed the stop at the tannery since it saved me the trouble from booking a separate tannery tour.

Abderrahime provided an excellent walking tour which gave us a really interesting window into his culture and its rich history. He keeps the group to a small size and provides ear pieces which means you do not miss out on anything or have to strain to hear him. Would highly recommend!!

Make the right choice and choose Abdel as your guide. He knows everything about the medina and had made me feel comfi in the streets with side facts and an answer to every question
