Before we introduce our best desert tours from Fes, we would like to provide you a brief interesting overview about Fes city. Fes is one of the imperial capitals next to Marrakech, Meknes and Rabat being the oldest of the four. It is also considered the capital of Morocco’s Islam, as well as the religious and cultural capital.

The city is divided into three zones: the oldest area inside the walls (Fez el-Bali); the new zone (Fez el-Jdid); and the largest area, created during the French colony, in the south of the city.

Its medina of Fes el-Bali is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the largest inhabited medieval cities in the world. It is also the largest pedestrian zone on the planet. In its winding streets you can find all kinds of restaurants, craft stalls, mosques and numerous tanneries,…

Orienting yourself in the medina can be difficult, so although the true spirit of this city is to get lost in its streets and let yourself be guided by the senses to find a new way. It is undoubtedly a unique place.

Take A Walking Tour of The Fes Medina

Without a doubt, Fes’ historic and vast Medina is the city’s main attraction.

The Medina of Fes (Fes el Bali) was created in the ninth century and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site with over 9,000 passageways of souks and shops.

The 9,000 alleyways, which span 1,334 acres (540 hectares), are fully car-free. That’s correct, the Fes Medina is one of the world’s largest car-free zones, with only foot traffic allowed.

Yes, there are 9,000 alleyways. We didn’t lie when we claimed it was big. 🙂 This is why you need a guide to show you around.

A walking tour of Fes Medina is the ideal way to discover some of Fes’ top attractions! Sure, you can use Google Maps to create your own itinerary, but we can’t tell you how many lost tourists we observed asking for help while on our walking tour. Let’s just say…a lot.

Visit A Few Madrasas

What is a Madrasa, you may ask? A madrasa is a religious school (elementary or higher education) where students can study Islam. The Quran is the primary teaching focus, but other topics like law and algebra are also available.

Two of Fes’ most popular Madrasas are Bou Inania Madrasa and Al-Attarine Madrasa.

Watch the Leather Workers at Chouara Tannery

Chouara Tannery (often written Chouwara) is one of three tanneries located in Fes. Chouara is the largest, oldest (more than 900 years old), and most well-known of the three tanneries.

Upon entering Chouara Tannery, you will be given a little bushel of mint leaves. Why mint leaves? For you to sniff, of course!

Cow urine and pigeon droppings are two of the key substances utilized in the dyeing process at Chouara Tannery. Soaking, treating, and tanning hundreds of hides in dye vats can produce unpleasant odors.

Shop The Souks

Not sure what a souk is.

“Souk” is simply another term for a market or shop. Souks can be found in each of the Fes Medina’s 9,000 lanes. Souks are sometimes divided into sections dedicated to specific products, such as spice, copper, carpet, and so on.

Tip: Our local medina guide took us shopping at a few souks, which was a great help! You can plan a few shopping stops with your Medina guide or book a shopping tour in the Medina souks!

Fes is renowned for its handcrafted leather items, pottery works, and patterned rugs. Not to mention the copper. A great site to get a copper mug for your Moscow Mules (as we did!).

There are dozens of souks selling everything imaginable. So, if you’re in the mood to purchase or simply browse, explore the souk-filled streets of the Fes Medina and enjoy!

TIP: On Fridays, which are holy days in Morocco, shops and souks may close at specific times for prayer.

See The 7 Gates of The Royal Palace (Del el Makhzen)

Unfortunately, Dar el Makhzen is not open to the public because the Royal Family uses it. However, you may still visit the palace’s facade, which features seven massive brass doors.

Even though you cannot enter the Palace, the exterior is still worth visiting.

The seven doors are gilded with ornate brass motifs, and the brass knockers match. The mosaics and other decorative aspects on the palace walls are absolutely magnificent.

Visit Poterie de Fes (Pottery Cooperative)

The Poterie de Fes, a local pottery cooperative just outside the Medina walls, is a haven for real artists.

This establishment is absolutely unique, with hand-painted pottery and artistically crafted tile mosaics. When you arrive, you’ll go through the cooperative to see how each artist makes elaborate and detailed pieces of art from scratch.

There is also a shop where you may purchase handmade Moroccan items such as tagines, bowls, plates, teapots, and much more to take home.

To get to Poterie De Fes, simply hail a taxi or arrange for a trip through your Fes accommodation.


Making plans for a trip to Fes! With its rich history and culture, it’s an excellent choice. Popular and best-selling Fes tours frequently included visits to historical sites, cultural experiences, and desert excursions. A Fes desert tour is typically a highlight, providing an opportunity to experience the stunning landscapes and distinct culture of Morocco’s Sahara desert of Erg Chebbi.
