What people are saying about Fes
While it's a bit of a lengthy drive to get to Merzouga, it's absolutely worth it to be able to witness the Sahara dunes at both sunset/sunrise. Camels are also my new favourite way to travel! The campsite is basic but the dinner was hearty, I loved the traditional music and dancing and our Berbere guides couldn't have been more hospitable. My only criticism is that every stop was designed for us to buy something and the restaurants arranged for our lunch stops were expensive and really dirty and substandard. Our driver Mohamed and a tour guide at Ait Benhaddou became very rude and aggressive, actually yelling at us because no one wanted to do the "optional" tour - we all just wanted to wander the site by ourselves but the men were clearly angry that they would miss the commission. I wish it had been a little more relaxing but it did feel like we needed to be "switched on" 24/7.
This 2 day desert experience was incredible and the staff from our driver to the berber camps were amazing. They made us feel at home straight away. The food we were served was delicious and the staff at the camps made sure that we were well looked after and comfortable. I had a few requests that were tended to immediately and the staff went above and beyond to make this experience a memorable one.
Chefchaouen is a beautiful city and well worth the long drive from Fez to see it. Our driver was excellent, the guide in the town a bit too much.... made us feel quite uptight as he was quite highly strung. Staff very helpful and caring to one of the passengers who needed medical assistance. Overall a good experience
If you love exploring ancient ruins, then Volubilis is a great place to visit, well worth it. Meknes is a nice city, but not sure whether stopping by for a few hours was worth it; its scale demanded more time. Great driver, put in a lot of effort to make us feel comfortable, a great guy.
A great drive through Morocco countryside to Volubilis ( large part of the trip), Moulay Idriss and Meknes. The driver was very nice and the hotel pick up was flawless. Wish we had more a detailed medina tour in Meknes. It was a beautiful city
