Amer picked us up from our hotel and drove us to the first sight and the point where our local guide Raja was waiting for us, our guide Raja was very friendly, energetic and proud to show Fes to us. I’d definitely recommend a tour, as it’s quite the maze in the Medina, and we wouldn’t have known where to go by ourselves. She gave us options as to how we wanted the tour to take place (more touristy vs more local experience) and we could skip anything if it wasn’t either our taste.
We visited a number of historical sites (Royal palace, Tannery in Medina, … etc.) as well as the Souks where we got to learn about how many of the Moroccan good were made (rugs, clothing, leather, teapots etc.). Overall, it was really great and informative! Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
