The excursion was incredibly well organized by our driver Mustapha, who picked us up without problems. In addition Mustapha animated us well, it was interesting, we really had a nice meeting. The rest of the day was very good, and our other gides very friendly. To know not to be surprised: the entry for Volubilis is 70 dh / pers., The entry to visit the attic + stable is also 70 dh / pers. (but it is optional), we are taken to a restaurant (classic price) and tips for the guides must be provided. It's a day worth it, I recommend, especially since everyone is kind and very caring.

The day trip was great. Everything was on time, the minibus was comfortable and had excellent WiFi. We had the chance to stop a couple of times to see the view and take pictures. The tour of Volubilis was very informative and interesting, the guide was friendly and knew his stuff. The tour of Meknes was also great, our guide was very knowledgeable and honest about what was worth paying to visit and what was not. The overall experience was impeccable.

The driver Mustafa was very careful. Very friendly, excellent person. The guide in Volubilis is very qualified and even tried to speak in Portuguese, since, coincidentally, we joined two more Brazilians on the tour. WE DO NOT LIKE being taken to a carpet store in Meknes without prior consultation. We had no interest in buying and it was a very embarrassing situation, with the seller presenting many products and offering / insisting that we buy. We spent a lot of time inside the store, unable to get out of the situation. It really was very unpleasant. Other than that, the tour was excellent, the visit to Volubilis surprising. An amazing place and I really recommend it.
