Amazing experience
Our guide was awesome! He was great with my kids, and kept them engaged and interested. He knew everything about Morocco and Fes and was a true expert. This was our favorite tour, and would definitely recommend to others!! 10/10 experience!!

Volubilis, Moulay Idriss, Meknes, and Chefchaouen 2-Day Tour
Everything has been great! Our guide and driver Nasser specifically shined on. He has been patient with our every need. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone, who like us, has a short time to enjoy Morocco.
Great experience

Day trip Meknes, Volubilis, and Moulay Idriss
We had a great experience. Driver was very nice, gave us some information along the way and was very patient and flexible in terms of time spent at each location and where we wanted to go. His driving was calm and safe as well. Would recommend.
The tour is great...

Small-Group Full-Day Meknes, Volubilis and Moulay Idriss Zerhoun Tour from Fez
The tour is great (driver, car, etc) but the main points of interest in Meknes are currently under maintenance, so it doesn't worth the trip to there.
Amazing ruins!

Small-Group Full-Day Meknes, Volubilis and Moulay Idriss Zerhoun Tour from Fez
The first stop was Volubilis - here you have to pay 70 DH for the entrance fee, and you get a free tour guide for the ruins! Particularly for our case, the guide we found wasn't waiting for us - I stayed behind to take pictures and he just left, so be prepared to not take too many pictures or skipping parts of the tour! Alternatively, while in the oratorium I met a security agent - Fouad Bach - who was super super nice and even helped me with a whole photo shoot, since I was travelling solo and needed someone to take a picture! Of course I only asked for one quick picture and he took 20 minutes out of his day, so so nice! After Volubilis (you get an hour and a half there) we went to Moulay Idriss. We didn't stop there for much, just to get a picture from above the town, and then we went to Meknès. In Meknès we had an amazing tour guide that walked us around the Medina and took us to eat at a place called Aisha (super good food!) The issue with Meknès is that it is under restoration right now - our tour guide said they expect them to finish by December 2022, so a lot of things are covered up (like the main gate). Other than that, Meknès was really nice, and the driver and guide were really attentive!

Private Day Tour to Meknes, Volubilis and Moulay Idriss from Fez
An excellent tour! Our driver, Aziz, was very professional, punctual, friendly and gave us useful information along the way. We were mainly interested in visiting Volubilis, so we preferred to spend more time there and less in the other sites; that's why it was great to have the flexibility of a private tour. Volubilis is quite big, so if you're a fan of ancient Roman history, you should definitely go for a private tour. It was very useful to have a local guide in Volubilis (included in the price), as there is not much information, but after the guide finished his tour, we stayed for some extra time to wander around by ourselves. After visiting Volubilis, we passed by Moulay Idriss, without stopping in the town itself (doesn't seem like there's much to see there) but only to take panoramic pictures of it, and then we had a few hours for a lunch and leisurely stroll in Meknes; most of the market stalls in the Medina were closed, as it was Friday, but we visited a beautiful madrasa and saw the impressive city gate. All in all, it was a great tour, with interesting sites (Volubilis definitely being the highlight), and a friendly and knowledgeable driver; highly recommended!

Small-Group Full-Day Meknes, Volubilis and Moulay Idriss Zerhoun Tour from Fez
This tour was a great way to avoid the hassle of trying to find transportation to Volubilis and Meknes. It’s more of a private car than a guided tour (you buy your Volubilis entry ticket for 70dh at the site, and you can hire a guide there if desired. I had 1.5 hours there to look around, which was just enough — it’s a big place!). Moulay Idriss is a brief panoramic stop, and then there is a 35 minute drive to Meknes. I had about 2 hours to spend in the Meknes medina. It’s a small local medina (not the hustle and bustle of Fes) so I spent an hour having a nice leisurely lunch. The hotel pickup/drop off is good, the pace of the day was perfect (9-5), and overall I would recommend it!
