Description

In this 11 hour day trip you will have the chance to explore the city of Fes, a destination with great medieval past and feast your senses on its sights and sounds. Fes dates back to 790 when it was established by Moulay Idriss. Although the city adjusts itself to modern times, it has preserved its historical background.

Your day starts early in the morning (07:00 am) when your driver will pick you up from your hotel in Casablanca with an air-conditioned minivan with WiFi and water for the road. The distance between Casablanca and Fes is 3 hours drive approximately so sit comfortably and enjoy the ride. 

Upon arrival in Fes, you will meet your friendly guide and start the tour. The first stop will be at Bab Boujloud, the ornate blue gate leading into the Medina and head to the magnificent Moulay Idriss Mausoleum. 

After that, you will visit Al-Qarawiyyin university, which is both a university and a mosque located in the heart of the medina. It was characterized by UNESCO as the oldest continuously functioning educational institution in the world. Also, it has played a significant role in Islamic history. You will pass by many other important buildings, such as Madrasa Bouanania and Madrasa Al-Attarine. 

Then, you will visit the imposing Nejjarine fountain and see the city's largest tannery (also the largest tannery in Africa). You will also visit the Mellah or Jewish Quarter and the old Ibn Danan Synagogue.

At around 16:30 pm your tour will end and you will start your journey back to Casablanca, where you will be dropped off back to your hotel, full of great memories!

Please note: This tour includes hotel pick up and drop off service from Casablanca. You can select your hotel from the list or select the "I'll type the address (next step)" and write the name and address of your hotel in the relevant field during the booking process.
