If you are in Fes for the first time: don’t waste your time getting lost in the narrow streets of the old town! Explore the medina and its labyrinth of lively streets and famous souks on this full-day tour in Fes with a private guide.
After your pick-up in Casablanca at your hotel or at the cruise harbor, you'll start the drive of about 3 hours to the holy city of Fes, where you will meet your guide for the day.
Start the visit at Bab Boujloud, one of the gates which lead into the medina. Visit some of the beautiful ancient buildings such as the Madrasa Bou Inania and El-Attarine, Koran schools for religious studies, and the University and Mosque of Al-Karaouine. Visit the Nejjarine Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts and discover traditional tools, carpets, furniture and musical instruments in a beautifully restored caravanserai.
After a lunch break in one of the hundreds of restaurants in the medina, continue to the famous tanneries, where the leather is still processed as it was hundreds of years ago. Observe the workers from a lookout, and learn about the different workings, and even bargain for a new bag or belt afterward.
Outside the medina lies the Royal Palace with its large plaza lined with palm trees. Last, but not least, drive up the hill to the cemetery Bab Fettouh, and enjoy the panoramic view over the white sea of houses of the medina.
After your visit, your driver will meet you for the drive back to Casablanca.
