I took a walking tour of Meknes with the guide Rachid Ismaili. Rachid takes amazing pictures, the first shot was always perfect and the way I wanted it. The guide knew a lot about the city and explained a lot of details about the Jewish quarter, how the Royal Granary was working, the history with the Portuguese captive of the Kara Prison who built it, the different periods of the medinas (Berber medina, Anadalus medina, guided me to secret streets with hidden gems (amazing doors, etc) and explained me the different Souks. Bab Mansour was not illuminated by the sun in the morning (when our tour took place) and Rachid was willing to meet with me later in the late afternoon again so that I could get a perfect picture of Bab Mansour with great lighting, I really appreciated this.
Fantastic day trip. Very easy to arrange this trip. The guide and driver showed up promptly at our Riad and provided excellent service in a nice air conditioned van. Our visits to Volubilis, Mecknes, and Moulay Idress were very informative. The guides provided at Volubilis and Mecknes were excellent. After visiting the Medina at Fes the day before, the Medina at Mecknes was not as inspiring and would suggest trying to spend more of the time at Volubilis. Overall, would highly recommend this tour.
This tour is simply amazing ! It is hard so see such a diversity in only one day anywhere else in the world. The driver was very knowledgeable and fun and the car was very nice and had aircon which was much appreciated in August! We were very happy to see areas that are not the most highlighted among tourists like the medina of Meknes that nobody recommended to us while it's a real jewel! I highly recommend this tour !
We really enjoyed discovering Morocco through the imperial cities. Our driver and coordinator were very nice and we felt safe with them. We will keep fond memories of this stay!
Fantastic way to see this amazing country and get a deeper look into all of its land and people. So much better than a surface tour with just dates and old buildings.
