A knowledgeable driver and local guide will accompany you on a full-day guided tour of Fez. The historical, cultural, and beautiful Islamic attractions both inside and outside of Fez’s Medina will certainly be visited throughout this excursion. We promise you won’t regret trying something new that you have never done. So don’t be frightened to do it.
In the morning, our driver will meet you and take you in an air-conditioned vehicle. Begin your tour at the magnificent blue gate known as Bab Boujloud, which opens into the Fez Medina. Discover the royal palace gate, which is made of tiny marble, copper, and mosaic pieces (zelije in Moroccan Arabic). After that, go to the Jewish Quarter, a notable neighborhood where Jews and Moroccans live. We are going then to the charming ramparts called Borj Nord and Borj sud, where you can enjoy a panoramic view, because we have concluded our tour of Medina from the outside.
Now we shall go inside, the pottery and mosaic school will be the first stop on our tour of Medina. If you feel hungry just take a pause to have your lunch, a typical Moroccan meal (at your own expense). After lunch, take an adventure to Chowara, the biggest tannery in Africa. The artisans here solely use natural procedures and colors to produce high-quality leather goods. The university of Al-uarraouine, which serves as both a mosque and an educational institution and has a considerable influence on Fes’ development, is one of the Islamic institutions that you will explore next.
The following stop is the magnificent mosque known as Bouanania, which was uncovered in 1351 AD and is a prime example of Marinid design. On our walking tour, we will also view a number of other locations, such as the Moulay Idriss Mausoleum, the Nejjarine Fountain, and the School of Attarine. With us, you won’t ever regret exploring new areas because you’ll feel as though you’re living in the medieval era in every nook of Fez’s ancient medina, which has its own unique history. After that, our driver will return you to the riad so you may rest.
