Volubilis is an ancient Roman-era ruin. There was moderately heavy rain & wind during the tour, but it didn't detract from my enjoyment. With Meknes, normally I like to explore on my own, but in this case, we received too little background on where to go. I ended up retracing the path our van took, and minimal time in the town. One of the other guests hired a local guide, and maybe I should have joined.

The places visited are much more beautiful than those offered on the internet. The excursion passes through beautiful landscapes. The thing I would have preferred was to have more time to visit Volubilis, (which is a large site), and greater clarity on the way back. they say there is an hour for the visit but then people arrive even 40 minutes later. For those interested like me, once in Meknes there is a very kind gentleman who has a small library with complete publications on Volubilis, and other books at excellent prices, it is located just after the arches of the large door where the excursion bus passes to then park and let people get off. the medina market is very nice, you can walk from one entrance to the other. the people in Meknes are very kind and nice, it is a city where I would have liked to stop. I did not use guides during the excursion but both sites can be easily visited independently, you also have more time to take photos that are beautiful here.

Everything was ok. The driver was super talkative and friendly, he was on time and efficient on giving us the best guide in Volubilis and Meknes. It has been a bit confusing to speak four languages all mixed up but it seems to be a common Moroccan style to speak with tourists.
