Full description
You will begin your tour at Bab Boujloud, the ornate blue gate leading into the Medina. From here you will head to the magnificent Moulay Idriss Mausoleum, which includes a beautiful esplanade where the Fez Festival of World Sacred Music concerts takes place each year. You will then visit foundouk Najjarine, which houses the "Museum of Wooden Arts and Crafts". You will be surprised here by the collection of the traditional tools used by craftsmen, as well as the Berber carpets and musical instruments. Next up will be the Qaraouiyine Mosque, which is both a university and a mosque situated in the heart of the Medina. UNESCO has named it the oldest continuously functioning educational institution in the world. You will then tour the souks of Fez, along the river and inside the walls of the town. Whilst here you will be free to enter into one of the foundouks (workshop of craftsmen) to explore on your own. You will then see the city’s tannery, a fascinating place that is the largest tannery in Africa. Next, you will visit the Mellah (or Jewish Quarter), as well as the old Ibn Danan Synagogue. Following a break, it will be time to visit the Marinids Tombs. From here you will enjoy a panoramic view over all of the white houses of the Medina.

We were accompanied by an exceptional guide. Noureddine made us visit the whole Medina in its most characteristic parts with great passion, patience and truly creating a relationship of complicity with all of us, as if we had known each other for some time. He told us the history of the Muslim religion, passed on their deep faith, accompanied us to the most characteristic shops and helping us in the purchases, in the negotiations, always advising us in respect of the local people and ours. Truly an exceptional companion, dedicated to "his family" of the day, as he defines it. Nice to see him wander around the alleys and respectfully greet all the people he met or to whom he thought he was making a small gift. Nice to see his sweet ways with the children on the street ... he never skimped on a kiss on those little heads in search of a dime. It was a really profound experience. Thanks !!!
