Explore Morocco’s fascinating history on a 6-hour, private tour from Fez to Meknes, Volubilis, and Moulay Idriss. Enjoy the flexibility of a private guide as you visit the highlights of an Imperial City, tour the ruins of a Berber-Roman city, and see a historic mosque in a hillside town that was long closed to non-Muslims. This 6-hour tour from Fez includes pickup and drop-off at your hotel and entrance fees at historic sites, with all transport by climate-controlled minivan.
Start with pickup at your hotel in Fez for a 9am departure to Meknes, a former Imperial City that ruled the country under a 17th-century Alaouite Sultan. Upon arrival in Meknes, discover the historic medina, and see the city’s most important landmarks, including the royal palace, a series of historic gates, the Sidi Saiyyed Mosque, Jardin Lahboul, and the elegant Meknes Royal Golf Club.
In Meknes and throughout the day, take advantage of your time with a private guide to tailor the tour to your interests, and set a pace that’s good for your group. The next stop is the archeological site of Volubilis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was once a thriving Berber-Roman city. See the remains of the Arch of Caracalla, the Basilica, and the city’s Capitoline Temple that honored the gods Juno, Jupiter, and Minerva.
Continue to Moulay Idriss, a hillside city that was closed to non-Muslim visitors until 2005. Visit the 8th-century mosque that looks out over the city and spot the only round minaret in Morocco, then begin the return trip to Fez, where this tour concludes.
