Felt a bit underwhelmed by this trip. Medhi wasn’t there and we were part of a big group of tourists. We went to the sites and drive was safe but big issues with language barriers, group size, lack of communication, no humour or personable interaction. Too little time in Volubilis and good didn’t give free time to explore. Too much time in Meknès, wasn’t a highlight of the trip! Functional but not that enjoyable compared to lovely city tour and cooking class with hosts that made you feel part of the family. This was not very friendly feeling tour but lady who led tour was kind and polite, felt bit sorry for her as she seemed bit confused by the day/ struggled to communicate. Needs some improvement

Very good experience with Mehdi and Ahmed. To be clear, Morocco has strict requirements on different types of guides. Some are only able to drive (and thus cannot enter a site and give talks on it) some are only able to work in certain sites and cannot drive, etc. this experience is a hired driver who takes you to the important sites. He is not able to enter into the sites, but does give a very good explanation of what you need to know to efficiently navigate the sites. For this, Ahmed was fantastic and a very good value. He was friendly and unbelievably willing to accommodate us, including remarkable flexibility in regard to our time at the different sites. He’s also a wealth of interesting knowledge and just the drive with him alone was worth it. Would definitely recommend!

The trip was perfect! We met the driver at our hotel in the middle of the medina of Fez, it was very nice that he wanted to come to our hotel, because the medina is very big! The tour was great, the driver was very friendly and told us a lot about Marokko. The stops were perfect (also in time) and the car was very comfortable. We really recommend this trip!!

El servicio es meramente de transporte a Volubilis y Meknes, el conductor para en algunos lugares para la foto panorámica. Me hubiera gustado que hablara Inglés para que nos platicara sobre los lugares que visitamos.

Oltre ad averci accompagnato in tutti i siti di interesse, è stato molto cortese a fine tour e ci ha portato a cercare dei negozi. Ci ha portato sino al nostro riad. Molto cortese e simpatica persona. L'auto comodissima e la guida 🔝. Consigliatissimo.
