Fez Medina 4-Hour Guided Walking Tour
US$50.00
Overview
Step into the past with a guided walking tour of the Fez medina. Make your way through the twisting streets of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, stopping at mosques, fountains, a tannery, and a vibrant souk, the perfect place to shop for unique souvenirs. You’ll come away with a window into the rich culture and history of this charming walled city.
What to Expect

Your guide will meet you at your hotel to begin your walking tour. As you make your way through the winding stone streets of the medina, you’ll pass historic sites like the Quaraouiyine Mosque, founded in 859 by Fatima Al-Fihri along with the world’s oldest continuously operating university. You’ll see the elegant Nejjarine Fountain and the Batha Palace, now a museum of arts and culture, with its peaceful Andalusian garden.

Take a peek at the dye pits of the pungent Chaouwara Tanneries. Continue with a visit to Souk Attarine, where you’ll find pyramids of colorful spices, Berber carpets, leather goods, and other treats like homemade orange blossom water. Visit Bab Boujloud, a massive triple-arched city gate decorated with geometric motifs in blue tile.

When your tour draws to a close, your guide will walk you back to your accommodations.

This walking tour is a must before you venture out on your own to the Medina. Having an experienced tour guide is necessary to navigate the mazelike alleyways. Our tour guide was friendly and informative. The tour was actually longer than half-day, as he accommodated...More

The medina half day tour of Fes medina was interesting led by Driss. Although we were taken into a number of shops as well as cultural places we didn't feel under any obligation to buy.. I'm sure we could have said no if we'd not...More

Great experience!

Mustafa was our guide and spoke English very well. He showed us around Fez and the Medina and took us to some of the top craftsman but always asked the vendor to not be pushy. He was an amazing guide! Highly recommended!
