    Your experienced, knowledgeable, English-speaking guide from Fes Desert Trips will pick you up from your hotel or riad at 10 am to explore Fes Medina and its souks. You will get to see the world famous tanneries, the oldest university in the world and stunning coranic school, and get a tour of the city walls and the lovely gates that lead in and out of the medina and breathtaking panoramic view of the old city then visit the ceramic factory, the royal palace as well as the Mellah (Jewish quarter). You will begin the visit with the guided walking tour of the medina itself, a UNESCO world heritage site, which is a labyrinth of 9,600 twisting, turning alleyways and the largest urbanized pedestrian area in the world. Here we will first visit Seffarine Square where you can see (and hear!) the metalworkers playing there trade in the traditional manner using copper, brass and pewter. On you go through the snaking passageways to visit the famous tanneries then the Al-Quarawiyyine University, the oldest university in the world and very important to Islam and gloriously decorated and recently restored to its ancient glory, and then the exotic aromatic spices and fresh, piled vegetables in the Attarine souk to the exquisitely decorated Attarine medersa and then you visit the Nejjarine square and its beautiful mozaic, blue and white public fountain and the Woodwork Museum and caravanserai. Your journey will continue with a tour around the city ramparts of Fes with air-conditioned car, to see the ancient walls and numerous pretty Babs until you reach the South Tower, a French built fortress built on a hilltop overlooking the medina which provides stunning views of the old city and its surrounds then drive to ceramic factory, where you can see the potters at their trade and using the kilns to make their ceramic wares. Here you will also get a chance to see the traditional Fassi blue and white pottery at bargain prices as well as other designs in a myriad of colours. Then to the mighty Dar El Makhzen which is the Royal Palace of Fes with it's seven huge bronze entrance doors. Then a short drive to the magnificent Bab Boujloud, the huge main gateway to the medina, patterned on one side in blue tiles, for Fes, and on the other in green, for Islam. At the end of the day you will be dropped off at your overnight accommodation by your Fes Desert Trips guide.

Had such a great time. They picked us up and dropped us off from our hotel. We had a female guide which was awesome! She was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. We loved her! We definitely recommend this trip to learn and see the culture of Fes.
