Private Day Tours From Fes
Many people arrive in Fes and often ask after a couple of days in this medieval marvel, “What can we see outside of the city?”
The Travel Source (located in the Batha area of the Fes old medina) offers several private day trips for the curious explorer. Seasoned English-speaking drivers safely chauffeur you or your group throughout your day outing.
1) Volubolis/Meknes/Moulay Idriss
Volubolis – Roman ruins of the 2000 yr old variety. The temple area, triumphant arch, and mosaics still in their original locations are not to be missed.
Meknes – As one of Morocco’s imperial cities, you will tour through the illustrious history of Moulay Ismail and the now open underground slave prison as well as explore the ancient medina of this sister city of Fes.
Moulay Idriss – Only a few kilometers from Volubolis is this important pilgrimage town. The city still remains an important destination for those seeking religious experience.
2) Mid-Atlas – Sefrou, Bhalil, Ifrane, Azrou
Go a short way out of town to see the cave dwellings of Bhalil as well as the Berber town and ancient Jewish settlement of Sefrou. In the afternoon move on to the chalets of the unique university town of Ifrane and finally into the Cedar forest to experience the natural beauty and Barbary apes of Azrou.
3) Taza Cave
For the spelunker in you, the Taza Cave offers a descent into the earth that extends for many kilometers of natural formations, narrow passages, cavernous rooms, and caving adventure.
