Driss was a wonderful guide and made our experience in Fes so memorable. He was very knowledgable about the city and its culture, and took the time to explain many things that we would have missed. Driss also catered the day to our interests in the Medina and helped us find some amazing shops and restaurants. Would highly recommend organising this tour if you want to make the most out of your time in Fes!
