The tour group took us to an expensive restaurant, and the waiter even asked us for tips. But the food was just okay. Not worth the price at all. An attraction was closed, and volubilis was a 15-minutes-walking… so…

Amazing ruins!
Gisela_O
, Apr 2022
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!

Nice day exploring Volubilis with free time in the Meknes medina
Wendy_A
, Mar 2022
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!

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.

Nice driver, but not really a "tour"
yi947

I was a bit unsure about how to write this review. For the positive, this tour is a convenient and comfortable way to get to Volubilis and Meknes from Fez. You get picked up and dropped off at your riad without problem and the van is comfortable and air conditioned. Volubilis is a cool site to see, and while it was nice stopping by Moulay and Meknes, these two places are maybe less exciting though still pleasant to visit. The driver was also incredibly nice and friendly. However, there were a few downsides. First, the driver didn't really speak french or english very well. I was generally able to understand the gist of what he was saying, but I know others in the small group were struggling a bit. Additionally, the driver is pretty much just that - he is not a guide and did not provide us with specific history or accompany us through the sites. At Volubilis, you can choose to hire a guide at the site to walk you through the history, though I did not. In Meknes, the driver is not allowed to accompany you into the Medina because he is not licensed as a guide, so you are left to walk around on your own. My general feedback is if you're simply looking for a ride to these different sites - this is a solid option, though more adventurous travelers could probably do the same visit for cheaper through a combination of train and shared taxis. If you are looking for a formally guided tour, then this isn't quite it.

No AC in the minivans

Minivan drivers do not switch on AC , it gets pretty hot in the back seat. The itinerary says Climate controlled transport, Morocco Trek Safaris certainly did not deliver this. I took 4 trips with them and none of their drivers switched on the AC when it got really hot.

Marrocan nightmare
Antonio_S
, Nov 2018
The tour to Volubilis and Meknes was a very poor experience. The driver was a simple “taxi driver”, just driving madly through the Moroccan roads. A nightmare! No timetable for each stops, no guidance, no nothing. The only target was to take us to shops or restaurants were supposedly he could receive a commission. And Volubilis and Meknes are such a wonderful places...

Nice tour with some really good views
TrailBlazer613825
, Sep 2018
The driver picked us up in time at our Riad and the ride to the different sights was quite comfortable. If you asked him questions, he answered as good as he knew. Keep in mind that this is not a guided tour in general. The drivers are not guides. They take you to the different places and if you have a nice driver - as we had - he will try to give you some information. At Volubilis we automatically got a guided tour, which makes sense as they can tell you a lot about the mosaics and ruins. Sadly enough a lot of people don't tip them afterwards, which is actually a normal thing to do here in Morocco. Anyways, we went on to Idriss, a small and holy town, where you don't meet so many tourists and continued to Meknes. The driver Always gave us possibilities to stop and take some pictures around. As some girls from our tour had to catch a train and didn't have a clue about the time the tour actually should end, we headed back to Fes a little bit earlier and didn't have so much time in Meknes to spend on our own, which was ok though because we saw quite a lot from the car and by stopping next to sights. As we arrived back in Fes earlier (around 4:15 pm), our driver took is to a good spot outside the Medina for some pictures. All together we had a great time, saw a lot and liked our driver too. Btw. if you are in Fes off season and are a little bit flexible with the date for your tour, book it shortly before by the people in your Riad/Hostel/Hotel...because then it might cheaper than booking it much earlier on the page itself. But this is not a guarantee I give. So, as I said before, keep in mind that your driver is not a guide for the tour. Make some research about the places you go to and enjoy the landscape on your drive and the sights. Then you will definitely enjoy your day a lot!

We had a lovely day walking among the ruins of Volubilis. Wild flowers were in bloom and it was beautiful! It wouldve been nice to have a guide explain things. Our driver didnt have much to say and didnt take us to all the sites. He left us for a few hours in Meknès to walk around on our own. It was a pity that most of the sites were under construction, so we felt we had too much free time on our own!

Elizabeth_M

This really is a driver who has local knowledge rather than a tour. The major attraction of the day is the roman ruins of Volubilis. For ruins to really come alive I believe you need a guide to talk you through what happened at them in their day. However, on this tour the driver just drops you at the gate and tells you to read the signs. It was really disappointing. In Meknes, you only get out of the car twice - once when again dropped at the stables and once at the guide's friend's craft store. The highlight of the tour was probably the added extra 6Euro in cash tour of parts of Fez when we arrived back at town early. This tour is overpriced.

Michelle_M

Volubilis was a wonderful ancient ruin to visit and the drive out there was very pleasant but I am not sure that the drive out there and back is necessarily worth it when you include Meknes as well. There was a lot of construction and renovation going on on one of the major sites of Meknes so we did not get to see it. Our driver and guide, Yusuf, was one of the best things about this tour as he knew a great deal about the history of Volubilis, Meknes, and also Morocco and told us as much as possible during the drive.

This was a really great tour and we had a great guide as well, named Yousef. We also had a great random couple that went along with us which made the tour even better. Make sure you wear some comfortable walking shoes because you will be doing a fairly good amount of walking. You do not need a guide when you get to Volubilis and you can explore everything on your own. It's not a huge place like an amusement park but there is a lot to see. However, I would advise getting a guide they dont cost much and even less if you split the cost with a group. It's worth it to hear the history behind everything and get some information instead of just taking pics with no background info on the place.

This is a great day trip from Fes. The Roman ruins are incredible - in some respects better than in Pompeii. Meknes is a neat town and we were probably the only tourists I saw I always take that as a good sign that I'm off the beaten path. Our guide Hassan was seriously the best. His only concern was for our enjoyment and comfort. You should request him if you're going to take this tour.

We were there in October. It was alright - the tour could have been much better. They cramped about 6 full sized people into an SUV so while the tour and everything were alright, it did really get congested on the back and forth. Also the driver kept turning the AC off which was a bit too much in the heat. Overall - there are better tours in the area and this one definitely would be least preferred.

My guide/driver,Idris,was punctual and welcoming. He's very knowledgable and because it was a very small group tour it was more private. There's no rush for anything even the drive around was smooth with the bumpy roads. I definitely recommend this tour fr a more private and understanding tour!

Vicki H
, Oct 2017
This tour was not really exactly as described. We visited the roman ruins at Volubilis with a guide which was extra fine and on the way to Meknes we got to see Moulay Idriss from a lookout. The driver said that there was only one thing of interest there mausoleum but we did not stop. On to Meknes and most of the visit was the lunch at the drivers choice of restaurant. A short tour of Meknes with a guide extra again and optional really was only the outside of the palace I think, the square, markets and an old Islamic school. It was not well explained. Then the store next door to the restaurant to buy metal ornaments, technique demonstrated by the guy at the restaurant who was rude when no-one bought anything. The driver slept at the restaurant while we had our tour. I took many tours in Morocco.At the end of the day I think you get what you pay for and a lot of of them steer you into shops and restaurants to buy stuff. Would I take this tour again?No I would probably pay more for a better experience. As an aside do not tour the food market if you are vegetarian or have a stance on animal treatment. Not a judgement just an observation and I would have appreciated a heads up from the guide so I could have not gone there.

The tour of Volubilis was excellent. The roman ruins are pretty amazing. We did not tour Moulay Idriss - just drove through. There was no real tour of Meknes either - dropped in the square and wandered. Seeing the countryside on the drive was excellent.
