Day Trips from Fez and/or Marrakesh?

We'll have 3 or 4 nights in each of these cities. Has anyone had experience with day trips from these cities? Trying to decide where to go and what mode of transportation to take...

Thanks for any suggestions!

From Fez you can get up into the mountains - we saw Barbary apes! Meknes and Idriss Moulay and Volabolus can also been done from Fez and are well worth the effort. And of course a day in the old city itself You might want to contact http://www.local-fez-tours.com who organize tours. A guide to all these places really helps.

Marrakesh, I think will take up the two or three days you will be there - lots to see and do within the city and it can be quite intense as it is so busy and crowded. Check http://www.localmarrakechtours.com/ (another offshoot of the company offering the Fez tours. They do trips into the High Atlas but only one one-day trip - the others are 2 or 4 days.

Sharon....I can also vouch for Around Morocco Tours (aroundmorocco.com) .. We travelled with Lachen personally for 10 days in 2011 and cannot imagine doing this trip without him....he was our driver and guide and speaks 8 languages fluently .....you will not regret time spent with him.
