Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Iconic spot to visit in Fes. The smell is not nearly as bad as before due to the process starting later (the raw hides are stored elsewhere before being brought in). We went during winter so the temperature kept the smell down as well. Watching the work is mesmerizing as you see the process of turning the raw materials into smooth durable leather. The real danger comes after the tour when they try to ell you something. The smell of your money overpowers the leather tanning process! Bargaining is a full contact sport so be aggressive and prepared to walk away if you don't get a price you like. Remember, there is nothing there you have to leave with...

    We walked by this store and saw the incredible rugs and knew we had to go in. The store is owned by two brothers, Idriss and Abdul, they are very kind and helpful. They let you have a look on your own and if you have questions are very happy to help. We ended up purchasing such an incredible piece at a very reasonable price. I’m so thankful we stopped here and definitely recommend it!

    Just off the main pathways from the blue gate you will find this hidden showroom. After some friendly bartering over mint tea, we negotiated a price that made both parties happy. There was no pressure or attitude. One just needs to know what size and colours they want and Mohamed and staff will do the rest. They even wrapped my 2 x 1.5 m carpet into a small enough size that I took it as carry on luggage for my flight home.

    This section of the Medina hosts the coppersmiths and metalworkers. They make copper and brass bowls, plates, and naturally pots and pans.

    Souk el Henna has been in operation for so long that hardly anyone knows when it actually started. It sells everything you can imagine, but cosmetics, perfumes, clothing, homewares, fruit and veges , and a host of other things are all sold there. There are many artisans working and making things from scratch. It is the real Fes! Worth a visit.

    Temptation was strong as I walked through the outdoor area with the fountains and the store after I had watched the artists preparing, making, and explaining their work. Their pride was palpable. I was especially enamoured with the fountains. We had recently moved and I could picture one in the backyard of our townhouse. Problem was I was with a tour group and wouldn't have had time to select and purchase one and they can't be ordered. So my suggestion would be to look at all the pictures before you go, see what appeals to you and be ready to buy when you see in person. Everything is beautiful and the manager Ahmed is eager to share the art and help you make a selection. You won't see products like these just anywhere.

    Visiting Art Naj Fez was one of the highest moment of our trip. We were able to see how Moroccan pottery is made by the magic hands of professional artists. We loved! And last, but not least, we have bought a beautiful vase that was perfectly delivered in Brazil. ❤️

    After a while, as a tourist you get a bit tired of being taken to the same factory craft outlets as everyone else. We did a private tour of Morocco but the guides still take you to the same outlets as the big tour buses. Oh well. This one was better than most and the process of making these ornate products was fascinating. There was a lot of beautiful things to buy, however I wonder if most staff realize that many tourists don’t have 2-3,000 to drop on some of the items they push you to buy. Lovely stuff but…

    I found this fantastic place by walking around the area and then suddenly being stopped by the most nice guy I have ever meet in Maroc. He invited me into his shop and offered me a cup of tea. We started talking and I quickly found out how big his heard was. He sold me a djellaba and I told him I would bring my friend so we could discuss buying some carpets. We didn’t have enough cash so he helped us looking for some. He used a lot of his day helping us without wanting anything in return.

    I will recommend this place to everybody who wants to buy a carpet or a djellaba in Fès.

    Searched up and down for a pair of shoes that felt extra special and came across this shop in the Medina. We ended up buying 3 pairs they were so nice. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something that’s artistic and a cut above the rest

    I highly recommend!!! We visited this store on a whim when in Fes and had a great experience. The owner was incredibly helpful, spoke great English and seemed honest. After comparing to other rug stores, his prices were fair while quality and selection were exceptional. The store is right on one of the 2 main Medina streets but might still be hard to find. You can text or WhatsApp in advance to choose a convenient meeting place.

    Great little painting shop in Fes. Really loved the selection of paintings from the different artists. Lots of styles including abstract art. Great price. Also, the owner, Yessari, was just a great guy to be around and very funny
