Historic city with dense Médina experienced. Packed with tanneries, mosques, and shop folk, Fes will not disappoint if you’re looking for an authentic Moroccan experience.
Great family holiday in Morocco I booked with Begaa Tours as i wanted to make our trip easy and memorable, We were travelling with our two young daughters the tour lived up to our expectations. We had 8 nights in total with BT we travel to Chefchaouen which we totally loved and was great for my children as it was an easy Medina with some great shopping. Then to Fes the largest pedestrian area in the world, We loved the day with the guide and learned so much and made it interesting for my girls. Travelling through the country side to the desert Ahmed always made it interesting for the girls stopping at markets and even got a donkey and cart ride in the country side. The camel trek and the desert camp was a great experience we all loved the camels and snow boarding down the sand dunes, the camp was well equipped. We loved the thought of walking where Gladiator was filmed in the Kasbah of Ben Ait Haddou, with its amazing views from the top looking over the valley. Ahmed organised a a tour around Marrakech for us which we were thankful for rather than wasting time, we got to see all the highlights. I recommend Begaa Tours for an easy, hassle free tour
It has been years since I was in Fes, but when I was there I found this city more captivating than any other in Morocco. One of the original four Imperial Cities, now its second largest city, the place you want to head is the medina (the old quarter) Fes is blessed with two medinas, but the one that is most colorful and famous is Fes el Bali; a maze-like area of narrow alley ways jam packed with people, animals, cafes, mosques. It is a place that can assault the senses and can be somewhat of a "cultural shock" to those coming from US or Europe. But is is so colorfu, so much energy. Be careful though of pick-pockets and be aware that you will be hassled by everyone trying to "sell" you things - but, hey, this is part of the special experience that is Fes.
realy intresting historic city, you will need min. two days, good campsite outside the city, some pushy dealers
