The trip is definitely worth it if you study a bit in advance about Volubilis and why Moulay Idriss is a relevant city in Marocco. There are tour guides in Volubilis, however the Museum entrance is under renovation. Moulay Idriss is nice for a couple of photos and a visit lasted 30 mins. Unfortunately Meknes is being renovated extensively, this means very little of the many important buildings are closed. On the negative side, our driver was not aware about the works on the street and we drove a good 45 mins unnecessarily, and again 30 minutes to leave Meknes… a pity with could have been resolved easily
