What a fantastic introduction to Fes; including the new and old parts of the city which culminates in a walkthrough the medina with all its rich history amongst the complex streets and trade. Our guide Said has a depth of knowledge unrivalled as he explained the changes during the centuries of Fes and also Morocco. An excellent tour which is highly recommended and will make sure you get the best of the medina without getting lost.

We enjoyed it very much. I really liked that Kamal took into consideration our requests for skipping some stops (because we've been to too many similar coops on guided tours in other cities), brought us to a local spot for lunch because we just wanted a sandwich. Really informative tour. It really isn't tiring!

we had a best Tour in Fez with our Tour guide Kamal. he is very friendly, knowledgeable and speaks very good English. perfect day definitely! only recommendations from us. Thanks Kamil for such a nice Day!

The visit was perfect, the guide Ahmed was very good with a lot of explanations. Only downside when he takes us to merchants planned in advance (they must be the most expensive in the medina). Thank you

It was very informative and our guide was very relaxed and always responded to us. We can highly recommend him.
