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
I say interesting as this place is unique and what’s more, they are spending money on the maintenance and improvements as and when required.
We encountered a refurbished area which really was a disaster when you see the before and after photos. Saying that, they...More
We have had the privilege of staying in this part of the Medina for the last few nights.
We have not only had the pleasure of a great hostess in our riad, but the people we've met have made our trip.
It also nice to...More
It is a historic walled city of 300,000. There are many mosques and you will hear call to prayer at appropriate times. It is fascinating to walk around & busy! We avoided being out after dark as we were warned there is potential for crime....More
The oldest part of Fes is a World Heritage Site and deservedly so. The oldest of the four imperial cities dates from the 8th c. The world's oldest university, Al-Karaouine, is here. So is the famous tanneries. It is a bit antiseptic to be taken...More
There is so much to see from the mosques to the medina to the madrasas to beautiful walls and vista points to see the city. As far as trash, my friend and I thought that considering the narrow streets and the ancient aspect of the...More
Avoid morocco if you can. If you can't, definitely avoid Fes and Marrakech. My primary two reasons are
1) The local folks (especially in the medina) treat you like a walking ATM
2) the food cleanliness standards are VERY low - my travel partner and...More
If you decide to visit this fantastic place, I recomend you hire a guide to show you different places and let you learn about culture, food, monuments, religion and so on. Our guide was really great! Hanane: +212 669-204482. She works in one of the...More
Roam around the Medina, breathe the crazy chaos of the biggest pedestrian area in the world, and step back to medioeval habits that are still enchanting travellers here.
With the right mood, it's a must-see.

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. 😄
