What Is Fez Famous For?

Fes is considered the Athens of Morocco: It is the oldest Medina in Morocco. It is also the intellectual, cultural, craftsmanship, and culinary capital of Morocco. Its narrow streets and centuries-old Medina is amazing. Fes is heaven for historians, archaeologists, and intellectuals from all over the world. The oldest university in the world ( Al Quaraouiyine) is located in the center of Medina. Fes used to be the capital of various Moroccan dynasties who ruled North Africa, actual Spain, and sub-Saharan Africa all the way to the Niger River and Sudan for centuries.

Is Fes Safe?

Fes is as safe as any other city in Morocco. It is even safer than most touristy cities in Europe. Police are now patrolling the Medina and they are visible everywhere. You just need to take the common. precautions like anywhere else in the world: – Avoid empty Medina streets, especially unlit narrow alleyways of Fes at night – Women traveling alone need to dress moderately. The less attractive you dress, the less attention you get. – Do not carry a lot of cash on you. – Be prepared to be annoyed by touts and fake guides every now and then. Just ignore them, and a firm ”NO” would keep them away. – A local licensed guide hired by your riad or tour company would be of great efficiency in the Medina of Fes. Not only by explaining a big deal of history, architecture, religion, etc but also by keeping you safe all the time. – very rare pickpocketing cases were registered recently in Fes. Keep your valuables, passports, and jewelry at your hotel safe.

Lifetime experience!! I even don’t know where to start! Ali was a perfect host, he gave us even more we thought we’ll get. It is hard not to smile all the time because of his positive energy and big smile. He is one of those people who you’ll remember your all life. People on the tour were amazing(driver Brahim, Ali, workers from the camp and riad in dessert). Night in riad was amazing, it felt like we are in some kind of movie. And our time in dessert was beyond perfect. Riding camels to the camp, locals playing drums for us, sitting under the stars in the dessert, best food we had in Marrakesh, riding camels and watching sunrise, etc. After this experience it is hard not to come back in Morroco. If you need to choose one tour while you’re in Marrakesh, you should take this one! Lifetime experience
Experience you weren’t aware you need!! Amazing experience throughout all the way! Starting from Marrakech, we stopped at number of spots to take astonishing photos, had even better moments with our guide Ali and the driver Brahim, treating us as their family! The food was amazing wherever we had it and both Riad and desert camp crew was a top notch! Definitely suggest you to wait for the sunrise the other day in the desert and go with camels if possible. Probably the best value for money when you visit Morocco!

Would repeat it any time Amazing trip and amazing guide. Was very well organised and careful with our needs. Good accommodation and very nice atmosphere.
🐐 goats up the tree Excursion to the top! A super pleasant journey with beautiful landscapes. Mohamed our driver was just brilliant. He answers all your questions and does the translation if there are several countries on the mini bus :-) We traveled by clean and confortable mini bus. The city of Essaouira is very beautiful and quieter! I recommend this company!
