Fes is not an experience for the faint hearted! The maze-like medina is alive with noises, music, calls of merchants hawking their products, stalls of colorful textiles, the pungent fragrance of spices, and the smell of leather treated in extensive open-air tanneries. To navigate the chaos of the old town and help you find the best streets, squares and madrasas without wasting your time wandering aimlessly, passionate local guides have put together the most comprehensive Essential Free Tour of Fes. This classic route will cover some of the must-see monuments in Fes as well as some secret local places that only a local would know about. It’s a fun and engaging introduction to the city where you will also learn lots about authentic Moroccan culture, art, food and traditions.

Your Free Walking Tour in Fes would take you for an exploration of the old town departing from the majestic Blue Gate. You might notice that, in fact, this beautiful tiled gate is blue on the side that visitors see and green on the side facing the medina. Why? Your guide will explain this mystery offering some insights on the symbolism of colors in Islam. Once you cross the gate, the thrum of traffic will fade, and you will find yourself in the world’s largest surviving medieval city. Some have described Fes’ medina as a massive labyrinth where even locals get lost from time to time! But fear not, your knowledgeable guide will show you the way to reach architectural gems such Nejjarine Square or the University Kairaouine.

Fes is probably best known for its textile, copper and leather workshops. In fact, most guides will take you to explore the famous Chouara Tannery during your Fes Free Walking Tour. At a traditional tannery, guests can learn how local experts use big stone vessels filled with dyes to transform leather into colorful pieces. The sight of a tannery is hands down the most iconic of Fes, so you better have your camera ready! Along this tour, you will walk past many madrassas and mosques, so feel free to ask your guide questions about Islamic culture. And, of course, you will also cross souks full of everything you can think of, from copper trinkets to leather sandals, perfume, sweets, musical instruments, jewelry and much more!
