What people are saying about Fès-Meknès

Our guide was friendly, very knowledgeable and organised a great tour which went beyond our expectations. Not only did we get a great tour of the Médina but he also organised a car ride to the Palace, the Jewish Quarter (Melah) and to a Fort on a hill overlooking the whole Médina.

Professional, and Sincere Guide

Our guide was very professional, punctual and knowledgeable. He answered our questions in details and gave us ample of time to take pictures. If we had not booked the activities for the following days already, we would definitely book with the same guide again.

A very good way to see the highlights of the Fes Medina. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, he even offered to take photos. The tour is really customized to what you want, so in my case I did not want to do any shopping so we did not do that.

Interesting to have a look behind the facade of Fez

The guide took us to places announced in the tour description, but was also very open to what kind of experiences we were looking for. A really good way of learning about Fez, Morocco and Moroccan lifestyle.

Very good with a top top guide who indicated me a typical restaurant
