Spend a few hours or an entire day with CV and our medina guide stepping into the workshops of traditional craft-makers, not only seeing their skills directly but finding out about their work by meeting the artisans, picking up their tools and experiencing their daily lives first hand.  On our venture we cover tanneries, weavers, copper makers, zeliig tile masters and potters finishing the tour at the new artisanal school in Batha.

Sculptor David Packer says – The tour is an extraordinary opportunity to meet artisans, to see their work and to learn about their lives.  It is informative, interesting and even exciting at one point!  This really is the medina at work.

  6. I have happily recommended this tour to many of our guests at Riad Rcif who consider it to be a highlight of their time in Fes. Even after doing an official guided tour of the artisanal area they all commented that this went so much further. As did their appreciation of the artisans as skilled people with many stories to offer.
