We had a wonderful time going to Chefchouen with this tour. We got food poisoning the night before, and the tour company rescheduled us at the last minute very easily. The bus was comfortable, and our driver Said got us there so smoothly. He also took amazing pictures from a bunch of angles; his photos were the best we had from that day. Our guide Souka was amazing and friendly. She provided a lot of background on the drive about things we saw on the way and Chefchouen itself. She gave us her number in case we got lost and gave clear directions for where to meet her at the end of the day. She showed us a great place to eat lunch and another place to take pictures. My group had some elderly folks who walked slowly, and both Said and Souka were so accommodating and kind to them. Our guide in Chefchouen Abdul Salaam gave us a comprehensive tour of the Medina and provided a lot of history. Thank you so much for such a wonderful day!

Volubilis is absolutely stunning!! Words can't describe the amazing mosaics that are still intact and the magnificent ruins. We soend an hour but we'd have prefer to stay longer. The second stop was the village of Moulay Zerhoun which we found not interesting, except for the view from the mountain. The last stop is Meknes. Do not miss the mausoleum! The architecture is fascinating. Most of the attractions are under renovation till 2023. We felt lucky to have Athmane as our guide for the day. He is knowledgeable, listens well and he answered all our questions. Thank you very much!
