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 !
