Fes was our favourite place in Morocco! Full of history, culture and things to see, we truly enjoyed our full day walking around the Medina (you need a full day!). It's not flat, so bring comfortable shoes for walking
From outside this almost looked like an overcrowded slum but once we started to navigate the alleyways, we were amazed by the hidden jewels. It was like being transported to a totally different era. There was amazing architecture (the madrasas), great shopping, delicious food and...More
We had an excellent trip to Morocco but Fes tainted it. The Médina is fun to walk around but the hustling and scamming never stops. The restaurants change their rates, shamelessly add on extras, the street hustlers lead you in the wrong direction, the taxis...More
This is a must see experience . You’ll be transported back centuries in time. You’ll see people making the most beautiful wares ( carpets, leather, fabric, ceramics) by hand using traditional methods and tools. You’ll learn how progressive they were - the worlds oldest university...More
If you have time, the Medina of Fes is the most top to see. almost Everything is concentrated within the walls of protection that several centuries of antiquity hide. Between that you emerse yourself a little and assimilate the great change, in one day and...More
Fes el Bali is the oldest walled part of Fes. It was founded as the capital of the Idrisid dynasty between 789 and 808 AD along the Oued Bou Khrareb (a small stream). About 156,000 people live, worship, eat, drink and shop here, so it...More
Beautiful old city with so much charm, it literally feels like you walked into a time machine. The building were well preserved and the medina has such a nice charm. I loved walking around and visiting all the little shops, musuems and the mosques.I would...More
It is amazing to wander the footpaths of this ancient and huge place. I bought some postcards showing what it was like in the early 1900s and only the people and footwear have changed. Amazing artisans, snacks, treasure-searching and people watching.
Could not suggest it more but think you need to get time to actually get a chance to feel the place. It's far from obvious, to find you way around without a guide or Google Maps or Waze. But once you get into it you...More

Hi! We paid 300MAD for a guided day tour (approx. 20£) and this includes a great deal of history snippets here and there. We covered quite a lot of must see places within Fes el Bali. This exludes lunch. We booked through our riad which was great cos some guided tour will be more expensive. If you are adventurous you can opt not to hire one, but Fes el Bali is an interconnection of 3000+ alleyways. Totally up to you. 😄
