Overview
The Roman ruins at Volubilis and walled town of Meknes lie near Fez, but are tricky to cover in a day without a rental car. This tour lets you skip the inconveniences of trains and cabs by transporting you to these two UNESCO-listed treasures by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Get pointers on what to see at both locations, and stop for lunch (own cost) in-between at the scenic hill town.

    Volubilis
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission excluded
    Your first stop will be the ruined Roman city of Volubilis. French archaeologists began excavating Volubilis in the early 20th century, though half of the immense sight still remains beneath centuries of topsoil. Marvel at the famous sights, like the basilica, the triumphal arc, and the many palaces with their exquisite mosaics. The tour of Volubilis can be done either with or without a local guide. Next you will make a quick stop in the adjacent small town of Moulay Idriss Zerhoun. Perched atop a hill overlooking Volubilis, Moulay Idriss Zerhoun houses the mausoleum of Moulay Idriss I (745-791), the first Arab king of Morocco. During your stop in Moulay Idriss Zerhoun you will go to a panoramic view point, visit the town center, and get lunch, a snack, or a beverage. Youur last stop will be the mighty walled Imperial City of Meknes. Smaller in comparison to the other Moroccan Imperial Cities, Meknes held the status of capital of Morocco for only 55 years during the reign of the infamous king Moulay Ismail (1634-1727). Still, Meknes’s old city offers a trove of sights for a curious visitor: Moulay Idriss’s massive stables, capacious granary, and cavernous underground prison. You will also visit Moulay Idriss’s mausoleum (one of the only mosques in Morocco open to tourists), the monumental Mansour Gate, the covered food market, and the El Hidem Square. Once finished with this busy day of sightseeing, you will take the highway back to Fez. You will drop you off at your hotel in the late afternoon/evening.

This was a great tour and one of the highlights of our trip. Ahmed was an excellent driver and very flexible about what we saw and how our time was spent. The drive to and from Fes went through some beautiful country and Ahmed was obviously very proud to share it with us.

The private trip is definitely worth its price. You have the opportunity to decide on the different stops and therefore indidualize your trip. It is no promotion tour at all. We had a very communicative (good English), cheerful, punctual, and service-oriented driver. He drove
