Free day in FEZ. Upon entering the streets of the medina (old town) feel that the time back: the guild structure is still present in the workplace, the narrowness of the streets does not allow other means of transport as donkeys and a constant tingling of people move through the maze of narrow streets in the middle of which will surprise neighborhoods such as Andalusians and magnificent mosques and Koranic schools. Fez has always been associated with the study and religion, and remains the spiritual capital of Morocco. After visiting the medina, another option is to walk aimlessly through the streets of Fez-Jdid, which houses the royal palace, the mellah (Jewish) and the oldest mosque in Fez.
Arrival at the airport and the center of the medina of Fez, Morocco’s cultural capital.

The trip is a series of strengthsThis day is one of them. The 200 km between Marrakesh Ouarzazate run through the High Atlas. The road must be traveled slowly, for its beauty and because it is a mountain pass that crosses the Atlas to about 2.300m. Rounding out the spectacular day, do the road following the old caravan route linking the two cities Ounila Valley, where there kasbahs built in caves and we will also visit the Telouet.

At the agreed time, transfer to airport and return flight home. End of our services.
I am absolutely amazed with the treatment received by Africa Aventura during our stay in Morocco. Yunes has been not only a tour guide, but also a storyteller (he is an open book, you can talk with him of whatever you want to know), a waiter, a photographer, a mediator, a 24 hours personal assistant and a long etc. From the first day till the last one, he has accompanied us at every moment: In hotels: he has kept abreast of every detail, from reception, when he helped us to bring the luggage to the bedroom, to show us how to switch the air conditioned on, or even to give us towels at the swimming pool when we realized we had forgotten them. At meals: Yunes seated with us (we invited him to do so) like one more, but he was not relaxed like us because he was checking out that absolutely everything was perfect. If you needed something and the waiter was not close to asking for it, he stopped eating to bring you that thing. I remember when there were crepes to have for dessert and they were so delicious that I wanted to repeat. Then he gave me his. By the way, were couldn’t believe it when he took us to his own house where her mother cooked for us during the whole morning (the best cous-cous I have ever tried for sure). During transfers: Yunes came with us in our cars (we didn’t rent any) and he guided the route while explaining what the landscape offered. Also how people dressed, the differences between one looks and others, etc., etc. During activities: He organized everything too. He stayed even until the party in haimas reached his end just to make sure everything was okay (actually he was really tired because he wakes up at 4:30am to pray and then he never stops, but even that, he is always the last one lying down). At the time of purchases: Yunes took us to very good places, not only for the quality, but also taking in to account to whom the money was destined. To give an example, we saw many scarves shops, but he recommended us to buy them to a woman and her daughters, who started a kind of project to help the women involved. In definitely, Yunes has been the most incredible trip partner (I cannot say guide, it would not be fair) I have ever known. And now, I am sure I can say that a new friend has come into my life. Thank you Yunes, this trip without you wouldn’t be absolutely the same… Don’t ever change! You’re incredible!
Yunes and Moha were extremely nice and flexible, planning a three day trip for us just as we wanted. They are very friendly and helpful, making as always feel welcome and comfortable. All places we visited were beautiful. We really enjoyed ourselves! We recommend Africa Aventura and would be happy to travel with them again.
