    What to Expect
    Meet your private guide at your Fez hotel or riad and settle inside your private, climate-controlled vehicle. Then, set off on your tour, traveling through the colorful outskirts of the city and westward toward the imperial city of Meknes.

    The area around Meknes boasts three major vineyards, all beautifully located between the foothills of the Rif Mountains and craggy Middle Atlas range, and subject to cooling breezes from the Atlantic Ocean.

    Along with the Moroccan sun, mild temperatures, rich soils, and altitude, these excellent conditions have meant that wine has been cultivated here as from as early as Phoenician times and later by the ancient Romans, more than 2,000 years ago. The vineyards produce a variety of full-bodied, rich, and expressive reds and whites from grapes such as Syrah, Merlot, and Chardonnay.

    As you approach Meknes, admire the expanses of vineyards and learn snippets about local wine production from your guide. Then, visit one or two of the leading boutique wineries in the region. You will visit the Celliers de Meknes winery and the Chateau Roslane to tour the cellars and sample the wines. 

    At each, meet your expert host and tour the cellars where the wines are stored and aged in oak barrels. Learn about each stage of production, from grape-picking to bottling, and then head to the tasting room to sample a number of the home-produced varieties. Swap notes on the flavors and aromas, and chat to the knowledgeable staff about their passion for wine making.

    Choose to buy your favorite wines (own expense), and then cap your tour with a traditional lunch, with alcoholic drinks available to purchase (own expense). Your tour ends with a drop-off back at your Fez accommodation.

    Trip was really nice
    Really good and nice driver. Made everything as comfortable as possible for us. The guide was also really nice. He stopped whenever we wanted we wanted to enter a shop or wanted to take pictures. He didn’t stress us. I can really recommend this tour, really nice and good services. Thanks!

    Great Experience with a few complaints
    The tour was not for a full day. We were back at our hotel by around 15h00 and the period after lunch was spent in a carpet shop and a herbal shop where we were certainly encouraged to spend money. I felt very uncomfortable. Perhaps it's important to mention to the guide that you're not interested in shopping for carpets or herbs/oils. Although I did actually buy some oil, I would have preferred to spend the time visiting museums, or other attractions. Having said that, our guide (Hassan) was very knowledgeable and it was an absolute pleasure to spend the time with him. He was respectful and kind and I would certainly recommend this tour.

    Best part of my trip to Morocco
    Would definitely recommend 10/10 , literally the best experience we had during our holiday. 7 of us were picked up by the driver at our hotel, in an air-conditioned Bluetooth and aux taxi. The driver was amazing and we all loved our trip to the city. At the city, we were picked up by the tour guide, who was multilingual. The tour guide showed us the best parts of the city and explained as we went along. We all loved his optimism and enthusiasm for the city, giving us an amazing experience of the city. We would love to come again and would like to personally thank the driver and the tour guide for a memorable experience.

    Really good
    Very well organised, knowledgeable guide and good bus driver. Interesting tour around Tangier which included lunch and a visit to the camels and beautiful beaches . The lunch was enough and very tasty. Interesting place but I expected it to be more "Moroccan" with the smells and tastes but seems rather westernized. Worth a short visit.

    Chefchaouen Daytrip
    Our trip was great. The driver stopped and let us eat breakfast since he picked us up earlier than expected. A different guide led us through Chefchaouen. It was a great tour. Definitely recommend!

    Chauoen Trip
    Trip went well! Driver was on time. When we got the Chefchauoen we had another tour guide who showed us around. But he also took us to his friends shops so we could buy things which I didn't like. His guided tour lasted about and hour and a half and from there we were on our own to roam around. The city itself is so beauty and filled with culture. Do recommend when you are in Morocco.

    Great Guides
    I would not attempt to do Tangiers without a guide - especially if you want to visit the medina. Our guide was excellent, spoke good English, and was very knowledgeable. The van ws comfortable for the 8 of us. There was some problem at the port and the company seemed a little disorganized but they figured it out.

    AMAZING
    I went to morocco with three of my friends. All four of us look very American and three of us were blonde females. I heard stories about Morocco being “dangerous” so as you can imagine I was a little nervous. However, not once in the whole tour did I feel scared or as if something bad was going to happen to any of us. The driver might not have been as talkative but when I asked any questions he answered and was extremely helpful with giving us information. He even offered to drive us to the airport the following day. Our hotel was also very far from the center of the city and he picked us up and took us back for a very cheap cost. As for talking on the phone while driving, he did do this but it was too make sure that the rest of the tour was in place. And I read reviews about him being a crazy driver. That is very wrong. As I noticed it seemed more of a customary thing to honk and pass other cars but I, once again, didn’t feel unsafe. The driver did not get aggressive when driving either. He was very good. Mustafá was wonderful and such a happy man. As many other have said, he is very popular within Tangier. So many people knew him and he was happy to talk to everyone. We were taken to a rug shop, BUT it was all a part of the tour. The people of tangier make their money selling what they make and the whole demonstration the owner of the shop said “I do not expect you guys to buy any rugs, I simply just want to show my pride in my work.” Mustafá told us before entering that we were not expected to buy anything because he understood we were college kids and did not have the money. Twice he even pulled us out of shops because the owners were asking for what he thought was too much. All in all this was a great tour and well worth the price. Thank you both for being wonderful human beings and for helping us explore Tangier!

    Not worth it
    The small group tour was not worth the extra $$ as compared to just taking the public bus down and back. I had to call/email the company multiple times the day before the trip to find out where they would be picking me up. I was then transferred between a few busses as all the drivers seemed to be trying to figure out seats. The driver stopped to pick up a friend as we were leaving Marrakech, whom he talked to the entire way to Essaouira. No "guided" narration as we went. Despite the fact that all of us on the bus stated we did not want to stop at the argan cooperative, he did anyways. Nobody left the car and he came back 15min later. The tour in Essaouira was in Spanish, despite the fact that I had signed up for a tour in English. That guide did spend some extra time talking to me in his limited English, which I appreciated. On the way home, the driver dropped us all off at the main square. The tour stated we would get hotel drop-offs. I then found out he couldn't see to read directions or Riad/street names so he was unable to even help any of us figure out where to go. Essaouira itself was a beautiful and fun city to enjoy and explore. I am glad I went. I just wouldn't recommend this tour. CynthWu's review was fairly spot on to my experience. I had booked through Viator and didn't know about it being on TripAdvisor as well. Viator asked me to review it here as their review site is down.

    Chefchaouen
    Basically my trip was good. I enjoyed the drive and the blue city was very nice. I did not enjoy at all the tour guide that was assigned to us. He was an old man who thought a lot of himself. We finally broke away from him as he wanted to speak mostly about himself and take us to the shops of his friends. He would not listen to what we wanted to do and see. I had friends who took the trip the day before and they had a wonderful young guide.

    This is how to visit Morocco!
    I can’t begin to say enough good things about our trip to Tangier, Chaouen and Tetouan. Maria and Ali at Viajes Marruecos are amazing! They helped us plan a three-day, two-night trip to Morocco with guides, transportation and lodging. Their knowledge of Morocco is second to none. We were met at the ferry dock by our driver, Jamal and our guide for Tangier, Mustafah. Both of these gentlemen were fluent English and Spanish speakers (French too.) The Tangier tour was excellent. Mustafah has so much knowledge of the history of the area. He is also such a kind man with a pleasant disposition and everywhere we went people greeted him with reverence. Our guide in Chaouen, Choker, was also friendly and knowledgeable and our stay at the Lina Ryad was very nice. As we were travelling from Tangier to Chaouen, we realized that we had left our passports and travel documents in the hotel safe in Tangier! Jamal came to the rescue and coordinated between Maria at the travel agency, the hotel in Tangier and the ryad in Chaouen to save the day. The next day, Jamal had all of our documents when he picked us up and we were off to Tetouan like nothing had happened. All in all, it was a fabulous trip and I would HIGHLY recommend anyone to use Argania Travel to plan a visit to Morocco.

    Wonderful
    We have a wonderful driver, didn’t speak much English, from Casablanca to Marrakech. Had a knowledgeable guide, who spoke good English in Marrakech. Very nice stops in Marrakech, great restaurant to eat. Worth the $$

    Amazing Day out with Sanae
    The tour was very informational! The hotel pick-up was on time. The local guide, Senae, showed us around and answered all our questions honestly! The tour included both a trip to the Atlantic coast (lighthouse, camels, caves) and the Medina (Kasbah, Souqs, local restaurant) in Tangier. Senae also helped us find the souvenirs we wanted and took a lot of beautiful pictures of us! Overall, a really great introduction to Tangier and I know we will be coming back!!

    Don’t bother with the small group tour.
    1st driver 40mins late. 2nd driver rude and non-communicative. English guide? What English guide? Oh and don’t bother pre-booking before arrival. It’s cheaper to book whilst at Morocco. I booked this small-group tour in UK. We were told in the confirmation email 1) pick up at 7:30am 2) pick up at the Riad that we’re staying at 1) Driver turned up at 8:10am, a whopping 40mins late! I tried calling the number on the voucher, but it was probably “too early” and the line went straight to voice mail. I ended up calling the Spanish number for the same company, and was then advised that the driver was on his way. 2) He came on foot, and took us back to his vehicle through the narrow uneven alleys, which took an extra 15-20mins! Bearing in mind that my father is 80 with mobility issues (using walking stick and needing to put one hand on one of our shoulders to help stabilise him while he walks), we were not best pleased. The description of the package mentioned English guide even for small group, and the voucher said so too! Was there one? Nope. If the driver was meant to give brief introduction as to where we were going, he failed miserably. He was silent all along the drive If there isn’t one, it shouldn’t be listed as part of the information for this day trip! By the time the driver parked up near the square, we thought we parked up to wait for the rest of the group. But after waiting a little while, we were advised to disembark the original vehicle and board a different mini bus. For some reason there were a great deal of confusion between drivers of different minibuses and someone who appeared to be a manager/owner. None of them introduced themselves to us, nor did they explain briefly what was going on or what the schedule would be like for the day. The driver did not start the trip to Essaouira till around 9:15am. Along the way, when we stopped to look at the goats in the tree and Argan oil cooperative, the driver did not say anything to any of us to advise how long we were stopping for. By the time we got to Essaouira, he finally spoke to us in English, saying he’d be leaving at 4:30. Someone else (a couple) in the group was not impressed, saying the information provided indicated it should be a 5-hour stay at Essaouira. The driver very rudely suggested that they could, and they should take a bus back to Marrakech at their own expense. On the way back to Marrakech, we had a pit stop, or that was what we guessed, because once again, none of us were told what it was for or for how long. Language barrier should not be an excuse, because we could have use simple words like “toilet” or raise his palm(s) to suggest 5-10mins... in all fairness, the fact that he was able to say 4:30pm at Essaouira, it showed us that he had an attitude problem, and not a language problem. My father has mobility issue, so climbing on and off the minibus was a task. The driver did not press the button to extend the extra step to help my father get on and off the minibus. The only thing we were grateful was that he did take us back to our Riad first after dropping some guests off at Jamaa el Fna. Again, at that point, because he wasn’t the original driver who picked us all up, he asked where we needed dropping off. He was rude to some guests, suggesting it would take 1hr or more to take them back to the hotel. When the guests protested, he quickly suggested they could get off the minibus, find and pay for their own transport. At first he seemed to be a competent driver. Making many overtakes in what appeared to be a safe manner. On the return journey his braking was aggressive and he used the pedal as a switch On or Off. We became very concerned when most of his attention was taken up by chatting with the pretty girl sat on the middle front seat next to him. He kept looking at her whilst chatting and we felt very unsafe with the speed and the overtaking coupled with the stabbing of the brake pedal. All in all, apart from the fact that we ticked all the “main things to see” for the trip (the only thing that worth a star for this day tour) A) goats in tree B) argan oil cooperative C) Essaouira the customer service was worse than non-existent. As it turned out, pre-booking in U.K. meant we paid at least 100 dirham per person more than other group members who booked at their Moroccan hotels/riads.

    Mostly very good
    This was a good introduction to Tangiers coast, Kazbah and Medina. For our liking it was too oriented to shopping in the Medina in hope of our group spending more money in the selected shops.
