Muy buen guía! Nos llevo a muchos más sitios de los descritos en la guía. Estuvo siempre muy pendientes de todas las personas en el grupo y de darnos gusto a todos en los sitios extra que preguntábamos o queríamos ver. Muy profesional, no es el típico guía que te lleva donde sus amigos a que les compres, de verdad ayuda solo si lo pides.

Hicimos la visita con Salim (en Google Maps aparece como Salim Fez Tour) y nos encantó. Comenzamos visitando zonas de la medina que de otra forma no hubiéramos visto. Fue muy agradable y simpática y siempre estaba dispuesto a complacernos. Más de siete horas de visita guiada con parada para comer en un restaurante que nos recomendó muy bueno. Muy recomendable, es el plan perfecto para conocer Fez en un día.
