The Medina and its Souks The oldest and largest medieval city in the world, Fes was founded in 789 A.D. and is considered the intellectual, spiritual, cultural and religious capital of Morocco. Our sightseeing tour focuses on Fes el Bali or Medina which retains its medieval charm as donkeys and mules are still the preferred mode of transport.
Enter the Medina through the Bab Boujeloud which is the gate that links the old and new quarters of Fes, and visit the many Medersas or Quranic Schools, the surroundings of the Quaraouiyine Mosque which has been the center of Islamic teaching for more than 1000 years, the El Attarine Souk, the Tanners's quarter and the Spices Market.

Volubilis and Meknes Located some 15 miles from Meknes, lies Volubilis, the famed roman archeological site and former capital of the Mauritanian kingdom: roman ruins among which the walls, the baths, the forum, the Caracalla Triumphal Arc etc...
Then we proceed to the visit of Meknes, an imperial city which has been the capital of Morocco under Sultan Moulay Ismail.
Among the monuments well worth a visit: the Moulay Ismail Mausoleum, the Royal Stables and the impressive Bab El Mansour.

Rabat Morocco's capital, Rabat is a curious mix of a distant past and a highly modern present. We begin our visit to the Royal Palace, across from which stands the Mechwar and Ahl Fes Mosque, which is fine example of Islamic architecture.
We continue our sightseeing tour towards the Chellah Necropolis, built in the 14th century by the Merinides, the Hassan Tower, which was intended to be one of the greatest mosques in the muslim world, the Mausoleum of Mohamed 5th, built in 1962 and one of the best examples of traditional Moroccan architecture.
We end our tour at the Kasbah of Oudayas, which has a spectacular view on the Bou Regreg River and the town of Sale where a Mint Tea in the Moorish Café is offered.

Sefrou and Bhalil The areas around Fes are blessed with nature's bounty and crystal clear lakes, verdant forests and the imposing mountains of the Middle Atlas.
Sefrou is 900 meters above sea level and it is appreciated for the diversity of its landscapes and its waterfalls. Also worth the detour is the village of Bhalil,with its troglodyte dwellings and where formerly , the Roman legion is supposed to have been stationed.
