RABAT, MEKNES, AND FES DAY 1
Unique Desert Tour conducts tours from Rabat with native Sahara guides and skilled drivers. We’ll take you up from your accommodation and transport you to Meknes, where you’ll see the walled Medina and the gate Bab Mansour. Then you’ll go to the Volubilis ruins before driving to Fes. We tour the city of Fes, which was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981 because of its walls and small alleyways. The Attarine Medersas, the Karaouine Mosque, and the Nejjarine Marble Fountain are among the places we see. Then we’ll go to the Royal Palace and Bab Boujeloud Gate, and you’ll stay in a hotel.
