We found the Kasbah very nice and beautiful to see. Enjoy strolling through the narrow streets. We also enjoyed looking around the king's palace. It would be nice if the guide could pay more attention to photo moments. Furthermore, he was very friendly and knew a lot about Rabat.

It was a nice trip!I am so happy about the driver and the view. Really good option for the multiple cities travel. Especially you are alone.
