Hi! I am Mohammed, a long-time veteran of the hospitality industry, and it is my passion for traveling that has led me to become a Moroccan culture ambassador in Fez. I am a very passionate guide with more than 10 years of experience with worldwide clients. I lived for so long in Fes the Medina and I wanted to share my knowledge and experience with you. Exploring the Old Medina on your own is a little bit risky due to the numerous look-alike alleys. So through this experience, I would like to introduce to you the Old Medina of Fes and its Ramparts by telling you all about the Historical background and local cultural anecdotes. Through my journey in Fes, I have convinced many travelers from all around the world that the Fes Medina is the best one in Morocco, and I would be excited to do that with you too! PS: We also have many different tours, including day trips to Chefchaouen, Makenes & Volubilis, and desert trips from overnight to multiple days. We also provide customized tours based on your interests and what you want to do while in Morocco. If you're interested in any of these options, please contact me and I will provide you with more information!

Tour description

You will explore the ancient medina and admire the three main components of the Arabic/Andalusian architecture: ceramic mosaic, the carving of the plaster and carving of the wood. You will gaze upon the minaret of the oldest university in the world that was built in 856 by Fatima.

While strolling slowly in the narrow alleyways and markets of the old city, you will discover the medieval Koranic schools that housed students who came to study in Fes during the medieval time: Madrasa Bou Inania or Madrasa Sherratine.
You will visit the oldest and biggest tannery in Morocco that is still functioning almost daily...
Other things to note
The duration of the tour is flexible as we can make it either shorter or longer depending on the traveler's demands. Also, busy traffic and weather conditions could affect the tour duration although it's rare here in Fes.

Travelled in couple - Aug 2022
Nos gustó mucho que nos adentrara en distintos lugares, comercios, calles... En los que solas no hubiésemos sabido ir. Nos recomendó sitios para comer, donde hacer el hammam ( le hicimos caso, y espectacular), y nos dejaba tiempo para ver, mirar, fotografiar y comprar. Fue bastante largo, duró como 4 horas y algo, pero fue genial!
