    Volubiis is amazing! We spent 2 hours there, but could have stayed there twice as long. Lots of signs to explain things, so guide probably not necessary. Rest of trip a little hitand-miss. Passed an ancient Muslim villagem but non Muslims aren't allowed o enter, so we missed a couple of hings we'd hoped o see. When we got back to Fes, we contacted the man who runs the how in Fes and he showed up personally to meet with us and try to set hings right. He ended up providing a ride to and from the centre of LaVille Nouvlle for us and on the wy back mad acouple detours to show us something we hadn't seen before. This guy bent over backwards to keep his clients happy.

    Our driver was Amin. He was kind and professional, he took us everywhere and gave us some information of the places we were visiting. He let us stay in every place as long as we wanted. On the way back to Fez he even took us to see the Royal Palace because he knew we hadn't seen yet. I have to say that it is an expensive service (it'd be much cheaper if you rented a car), but on the other hand is quite convenient and you don't waste any time.
