Amazing experience, but don't get fooled. It's nothing like Marrakech Medina where you can find your way around. I recommend a guide. We spent about 30€ for an official guide for a day. He took us everywhere. Tannery was unbelievable. Don't shop from the touristic places. There are amazing little authentic shops. Spend the whole day at the medina. Get... More

A great marketplace for looking, shopping, people watching and sampling local olives, fruits, breads and pastries. We passed on the camel meat. Colorful with many photo opportunities.

This place is very special and I have never visited anything like it. It is spectacular inside the houses and palaces but it is very discreet from the outside.

I have never seen anything like the Medina of Fez. One narrow street after another. Each curves in whatever direction it chooses. It is near impossible to not get lost. Definitely have gps on your phone or take a guide. The gps does not give you street names (I am not sure there are many) but will show you the... More

It is quite an experience to visit this souk and Medina. I would say you will feel like if you had been into the time machine and go back to middle ages in what regards certain aspects. You will find that the Moroccan people still use ancester techniques to produce their products. Please do not miss the Madrasa and Tanneries.... More

Taoufik Filali has a relatively small shop that may be a challenge to find at 37 Talaa Kabirafes, but the effort was well worth it of us. He did not pressure us in any way and the negotiation was straight forward. No attempt was made to give us a "Big Discount" if we made multiple purchases. We even were invited... More

This historical city is the place of birth of the andalusian culture and is therefore a visit you must do while in Morocco.

We got a tour guide from the tourist office in Fes. He was very knowledgeable, navigated the 9400+ streets with ease and showed us loads of things we wouldn't have seen on our own.
