Great place to visit to understand more about Morocco's imperial cities. We have took a guide because it is better to visit this historical city with a professional before going on your own, otherwise you risk to miss some beautiful things to see.

Fez's old city is one of the most astounding, dense, rich places one can visit. It is easy to get turned around, so try to orient yourself to the two main streets (Kebira and Saghira) and you should be all right.

Walking through the Medina of Fez feels is like a stroll through history. Don't be afraid to get lost in the labyrinth because you're sure to stumble across something incredible. The people were really kind but many like to play games with new travellers and will send you completely in the wrong direction or tell you a road is closed.... More

The Medina of Fez is a wonderful, mesmerizing tangle of over 9000 lane ways. As NO cars can enter, everything is either carried in by donkey, or in small barrows. The Medina has not changed in centuries. As you walk the lane ways ( with a guide or else you miss half the history of the Medina) you are carried... More

One of the best Medinas in Morocco. So much better than Marrakesh, feels real and there are not people hounding you to come into their shops. Is massive though and takes a while to figure out how to navigate but that's just part of Medinas.

The Medina of Fez is a step back in time, filled with history and current beauty. As you consider where to go and how to travel anywhere in Morocco, but especially in Fes, there is a guide who surpasses all of the others: Rachid MRITAKH. Mr. MRITAKH collaborates with his clients in order to create unique and affordable one-of-a-kind tours.... More

Alot of the shops were close because it was the end of Ramadan and they were preparing for the holiday but we still had the opportunity to visit some of the shops. The medina is very large so it is easier to navigate with a guide

The medina in Fez is a remarkable place to wander around. The sights and smells are just mindblowing and the people are friendly and approachable. We had a guided tour of the lower end of the medina which took in many passages and places that would have been difficult to locate without a guide and then we wnadered the top... More
