In this 11 hour day trip you will have the chance to explore the city of Fes, a destination with great medieval past and feast your senses on its sights and sounds. Fes dates back to 790 when it was established by Moulay Idriss. Although the city adjusts itself to modern times, it has preserved its historical background.
Your day starts early in the morning (07:00 am) when your driver will pick you up from your hotel in Casablanca with an air-conditioned minivan with WiFi and water for the road. The distance between Casablanca and Fes is 3 hours drive approximately so sit comfortably and enjoy the ride.
