Without Imane's guidance we would never have been able to see the city like that! Thanks to him and his knowledge we saw interesting and less touristy neighborhoods that we probably wouldn't have been able to go to! Imane was a perfect guide: super friendly and accompanied us excellently, answering all our curiosities! Obviously you are taken to several strategic shops to try to sell something to tourists but it's part of the game and we never felt obliged to buy anything nor did we experience pressure of any kind! Super recommended😊

I would highly recommend to have a guide to experience Fez Medina otherwise you can get lost or miss seeing few places. Jamal was our guide and was great, he walked us thru the Medina explaining very aspect of history. We covered the entire Medina , Souk, outer walls etc in 4 hrs. Please wear comfortable walking shoes as the paths are uneven. I would highly recommend this tour with Jamal

The tour was intense as there is a lot of walking! But our guide Mohammad was amazing and very knowledgeable! Our son is special needs and we were worried if the guide will have the patience, but Mohammed was very patient and understanding! And the kids loved his funny personality! The tour lasted around 4-hours. Be prepared for a lot of walking! Very good experience! Thanks

The tour was quite complete, the guide Ahmed was also a plus, he is super friendly and makes you feel welcome. I highly recommend it since it's easy to get lost in the Medina streets

Very friendly and prepared guide. Highly recommended!
