DO NOT book this tour, you will regret it. This is more a shopping trip with ridiculous prices. The tour guide seemed nice and took us to some locations mentioned and gave us a little brief about the Medina which was great. But then he took us to several empty stores inside the Medina where the merchants told us about their handicraft process. The rug merchant was very aggressive and we regret that we ended up paying $1400 for an area rug. He told us some information about the widows cooperative and told us how most of the money goes to them, which is BS. I wish I had read about these and been more prepared but again I didn’t know this was going to be a shopping trip. We ended up paying huge sums of money for things that we could’ve found for a lot cheaper. I will be fighting the charges with my credit card company.

A must do tour if staying in Fes. Our driver picked us up and gave us a tour around the city. Then we met our other guide in the Medina to complete the tour. Our experience in Fes wouldn't have been the same. Highly recommend this tour.
