Day Trip From Fes To Middle Atlas And Cedar Forest reviews


Wonderful day trip from Fes to the Middle Atlas and Cedar Forest

This visit was actually a pleasant surprise and easily became a highlight of our trip. Our guide, Hassan, was the best guide we had in Fez and he took the time to explain a lot about Morocco, Fez, and the surrounding cities and stories. I agree with one of the other reviewers that there is a typo in the description of this tour – not worms but worms – CUTE little monkeys in the forest that will gently eat the peanuts from your hand. It is certainly a slower pace than some of the other tours in Fez, but our guide was also happy to help us buy carpets and other souvenirs much cheaper than Fez or Chefchaoen or Marrakech and was also happy to force us to take us to a no. -Tourist lunch destination, something that we have not had the opportunity to choose for other tours in Morocco.


Day Trip to Cedar Forest via Middle Atlas

We started the day by picking us up at Bab Boujloud Blue Gate because our riad was not easily accessible. Our driver Said was fun and chatty from the start, asking us all about us and telling us about Fez, where he has lived for 35 years. We crossed the Middle Atlas, which offered good views, but above all seemed quite similar. We got to the lake which was sadly dry as it hadn’t rained much recently but I imagine it would be a mind-blowing spectacle if it had had water. Maybe it’s best to check the rain before the tour as it was supposed to be wet a few weeks before. Then we went to Cedar Forest which was my favorite part. It was very strange to see such a forest when we were so used to the arid landscape around the medina of Fez and it was great to explore it. After a bit of a walk, we came back down and spent some time feeding the monkeys here with nuts that a man was selling at very low prices. The monkeys were very friendly to people and very nice when taking the food, although we had to be careful that they didn’t pinch the whole bag! Then we went to Ifrane, a picturesque town that looks very European and completely contrasts with the old town of Fez. However, there wasn’t much to do here, and it was very similar to parts of Europe when we wanted to experience a culture different from our home continent. Finally, we stopped at Azrou, a fairly high town with great views but not much else to see. We have mint tea here before heading back to Fes. The views to see when visiting weren’t amazing, and really probably the cedar forest and the lake! do this tour. The cities were quite urbanized and didn’t have much to do. Creo que para mejorar este recorrido probablye no vaya a Azrou, vaya a un pequeño pueblo de montaña, un huerto de manzanos del Atlas Medio o una finca de olivos y aprenda más sobre cómo vive la gente en las montañas y cuál es el producto que proviene of them. Said the Joker! He was very entertaining and funny at all times, but he made us laugh, taught us French and Arabic, and told us about different parts of the country and Fez. It made the visit interesting and so much more enjoyable!


Best day trip from Fes to Ifrane and Azrou

I recommend this trip to people who get a little tired of the noisy and busy streets of the medina and want to find more favor in places like Ifrane, to breathe some fresh air and get back to nature. During the trip, variety of landscapes: oak forests, cedars, cultivated fields.


1 Day trip from Fez Via Middle Atlas to Cedar Forest.

We had a very pleasant day thanks to our guide. Because of the rain that day he had to improvise at times, but he did an amazing job. We saw a lot, with a great variety and he explained everything very well.
