Visit the Roman ruins at Volubilis and the Imperial City of Meknes on a full-day tour from Fez that explores fascinating history and culture. You’ll tour a pair of UNESCO World Heritage Sites with a private guide: walk through ruins with views across the countryside, see the Meknes city walls, then explore rambling souks and historic landmarks. Visiting Volubilis and Meknes on a private tour means you can enjoy the day at your own pace, tailoring the flexible itinerary to your preferences.
We took this tour on 12/25/17 and it was wonderful! Our driver, Hakim, arrived promptly yet was very patient about waiting for us to finish breakfast, which our riad served at the scheduled time of the tour. Our drive to Volubilis was very enjoyable with stops for scenic photos, wide-ranging conversation, and a breadth of musical choices. When we asked if it would be possible to stop for coffee, Hakim took us to a cafe with incredibly good coffee. Given our late start, and the fact that we had asked the tour operator to add a stop in Moulay Idriss, I am sure we threw off the schedule quite a bit, but neither Hakim nor the guide who met us later in Meknes Nourredine, if I am remembering correctly ever gave any hint that all was not well. Volubilis was interesting and we enjoyed exploring it on our own I am glad we were here in winter because it must be blazing hot in summer. After lunch in Moulay Idriss we met our guide in Meknes. His knowledge of Moroccan history was very deep, and he was able not only to tell us about the sites we visited, but also answer questions about the current and prior dynasties. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone spending time in Fez. It is well worth the cost to book the private tour, and if you are lucky you will have Hakim as your driver.
