Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.
Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.
When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
We did Volubilis on the way, just as the rain set in. Simon & Mouna's place was, he emphasised, only a guest house. I thought it had unrealised potential. There was no shortage of guests, it's good for short stay tourers. Simon told me a lot booked over the Internet. Mouna is an excellent cook, some people were there to do her cookery course, and she did the best tagine I've ever had. They 're a lovely couple and it was interesting to get Simon's take on aspects of life there. But the riad has no natural light inside at all and the whole place was in complete darkness for much of the time as they live next door and tend to let the guests get on with it. No tvs in rooms (though the wiring was there). They intend the main room to be a showcase for local crafts but its just piled up there without explanation. Some better lighting and a more thoughtful display would do wonders - maybe they need a light touch Olga Polizzi ! Meknes was a washout for sightseeing that day due to the rain, but I think you're right that one night is enough.
