Meknès City Tour

Tour listed by Mounaim Riahi
About this tour

Meknes is one of the ancient and imperial cities of Morocco that still holds the charm of its culture and tradition in the most attractive manner. It was also the capital city during the past reigns around the seventeenth century. While the present is not the same, and Rabat has taken the place, Meknès City Tour nevertheless draws in a number of tourists every year. Meknes is your ideal destination if you're looking for an authentic Moroccan taste and want to see the cultural heritage of the past. The place is also free of crowds and is a relatively peaceful city. I would guide you through the lanes and stories of Meknes that would make you feel like you belong here.

Meknes does not only have the virtues of the past and the traditional styles, but it also has a lively nightlife for you to enjoy. You can visit a number of places in Meknès City Tour, including the Borj Belkari tower, a guardian to the walls during the past times and Heri es Souani, which used to be a royal granary. Look through these places while I narrate you the tales and legends about them and the rulers. I'd make sure that all your queries and curiosities are answered well by me. Meknes is also full of a number of exquisite and grand mosques. The Grande Mosque is one of the most splendid mosques here. Due to religious considerations and respect, the non-Muslims are not allowed entry inside the mosque, but you can see the beautiful architecture from outside.

The mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, the great leader who had established Meknes and brought in glory to the place houses the tomb of the Sultan. Non-Muslims can visit the place but are not permitted to be anywhere near the tomb. I'll also take you to the Bou Inania Madrasa, an old Islamic place of education with fine architecture. This shows the respect and admiration that Madarsas and education had in the Moroccan Islamic society.

Around 30kms of Meknes is an ancient site sitting peacefully within the mountains, Volubilis. It is a UNESCO world heritage site and the carvings and statues that you see here are a part of the Roman Berber past. The ancient bathhouse and structures show that the spa and hammam tradition has been a part of Morocco since times immemorial. I can also guide you to a number of spas and places of extravagant skin treatment. The nightlife here is extremely jaunty and a number of bars are there to entertain the tourists. Visit the local museum, shop with me at souks where I can teach you more about bargaining and the local lifestyle of the natives. The Moroccan food and various special types of bread that we prepare are the best part of the Meknes city.

Let me guide you through the splendor and delicious meals as you stroll between the past culture and present market in the city.
