Full description
Get picked up from your hotel or riad at 10 AM in a comfortable, air-conditioned car. Drive through Ain Lah, Zagotta, the attractive Dam Achahad, and Rif mountains. Make several stops to enjoy the landscape, fresh air, and capture incredible photos. Arrive at Volubilis, the famous well-preserved Roman city. Learn about the history and culture of the Romans by exploring the ruins of the Arch of Caracalla, Basilica, and the Capitoline Temple. Spend some free time to stroll around on your own and capture more amazing photos. Hop back into the car, and drive towards your next stop, the holy Islamic town in Moulay-Idriss. Find out how this settlement was built by Moulay Idriss I. Admire the panoramic views, elongated squares, and the green-tiled pyramids of the Zaouia as you stroll through a labyrinth of clean alleyways. Next, continue on to Meknes where you will stop for lunch in a local restaurant. After you've eaten, start your tour of Meknes. See the ancient city walls and monumental gates which date back to the 17th-century. Admire the Royal Palace, Berdaïne Bab, and Bab Khemis. Then head over to the Africa Bab Mansour and El Heri es-Souan, huge granaries and stables built by Moulay Ismail's soldiers. Make a stop in the Moulay Ismail Mausoleum, which for a long time was the only mosque which non-Muslims were allowed to visit in Morocco. Visit the Place-El-Hedim monument before making your return trip back to Fez where you will be dropped off back at your accommodation.

We started the trip with Volubilis where we spent about 2-3 hours, given so much to see. Then we headed to Moulay Idriss, it was a slightly rainy day so did not get to venture much; we did manage to see the mosque for a little bit. from there we drove to Meknes; there we went to a shop where jewelry is made on brass/copper with silver work (prices were a little high), we went to the square of Meknes with snake charmers, monkeys (i.e., a mini Jam el F'na of Marrakesh). Our driver was Zakaria, who guided us and gave us history and background of the places we visited. He drove safely, and we enjoyed chatting with him, sharing history of our countries. Overall, a very good tour.
