What people are saying about Medina, Meknes

We really liked this tour as it was not too far from Fez. It was really interesting but definitely choose the option to include the guide. You will get a guide for Volubilis and another one for Meknes. If you don't, you will have to pay for a guide over there, so it might be mkre complicated. We wouldn't have learned about a lot of things if we didn't have a guide. Definitely recommend it!

It has been an amazing day! Since tour started until the end, it was such an amazing experience. The driver Tabi guided us making the day better. I was wondered because he explained using either French, English or Spanish. He took care of us and gave an extra mile. Both cities were amazing as well.

They picked us up and brought us back as described, the tour was longer than expected because in Meknes a guide was waiting for us to visit the Medina and the mosque. All very welcome and recommended to see more viewpoints and Roman ruins en route to Meknes

Volubilis was fascinating and the guide essential to make the most of the visit. Meknes was a little bit of repetition after the day guided tour of Fez. Rashid, our guide was knowledgeable and helpful.

It was a wonderful trip. Already going to Volubilis was worth it. The driver was kind, caring and very helpful. All in all: a very lovely trip!
