Sahara Desert Tours from Fez are the most popular activities in this imperial city. The journey takes about 7 hours to reach Erg Chebbi and approximately 6.30 hours to reach Erfoud.
Fes is one of the most famous cities in Morocco, featuring beautiful architecture, a vibrant culture, and a rich history that is worth exploring. At Desert Morocco Adventure, we can provide tours from Fes that will show you the beautiful city and the surrounding area as you make your way to Marrakech over three or four days. With that in mind, here are some areas that you should want to see the most when you are taking tours from Fes.
Have Guides Show You the Best Side of Fes
Fes is a city that can overwhelm most people who visit there on their own. That’s why it’s always a good idea to get an itinerary from a professional tour company such as Desert Morocco Adventure. You can work with the tour guides to tell them what you would like to see from the city, and they’ll determine the best way to make your wishes come true. There is so much to see in the city that even if you take several days, you’ll still just scratch the surface.
Buy from the Local Leather Tanneries
Fes is famous for its local leather tanneries, and this is an area that everyone should try to visit when they come through the city, even if you’re on your way to Marrakech. You can buy quality pieces like sandals, pants, and much more. Even if you don’t want to buy anything, it’s always a good idea to admire the craftsmanship of the people in this area.
Explore the Medina of Fes During Your Sahara Desert Tour
The Medina of Fes is a World Heritage Site, so it’s a unique place that everyone should see when they travel to this part of the world. It’s difficult to list everything that makes this part of the city incredible, but the religious sites including Mosques and a famous synagogue are certainly among the reasons to visit. You’ll see architecture that is centuries old, see an entire street painted rainbow colors, and have the opportunity to eat different foods and meet wonderful people all within a compact area.
Visiting Ancient Cities
While the city of Fes was founded in the 8th century, this part of Morocco has been active for centuries before that time. From Fes, you can even visit the site of Volubilis, a Roman city that existed in the 3rd century B.C. While it was retaken by locals five centuries later, a lot has been preserved in this site, and it’s a great place to see the impact of Rome this far away from their seat of power. Moreover, it’s nice to see how the people who took the city changed it with their own art and architecture.
As you can see, Fes has a lot to offer travelers no matter what reasons they have for exploring the world around them. Whether you’re interested in exploring the old foundations of the city, eating some exquisite food, or exploring religious areas, Fes has it all.
