Full description
Your Casablanca walking tour begins at Hassan the II mosque, the largest mosque in Morocco and the third largest in the world. Admire the mosque's imposing minaret, which stands at 210 meters tall, then head to the famous Rick’s Cafe, a stylish reproduction of the bar from the iconic Casablanca movie. Next, follow your guide through the picturesque alleyways of the city to reach the Medina, where you can browse the stores alongside locals going about their daily shopping. From here, visit the nearby palace of Mahkama du Pacha, a grand Moorish-style building featuring mosaics, marble columns, and carved cedar ceilings. Make your way over to the Habous quarter, also known as the New Medina, and shop for authentic Moroccan goods and souvenirs such as clothing, leather, jewelry, and food. Make a stop at a local bakery next where locals take their homemade breads and pastries to be baked. Enjoy a tasting of some freshly baked bread, then visit one of the oldest pastry houses in Casablanca, tucked in a laneway off the Souq Habous. Sample some traditional Maghribi pastries before washing it down with a coffee or mint tea at a nearby cafe.

I had a fantastic tour with Mohammed Bennis and Rachid. Mr Bennis was very knowledgeable and I really had the impression he loves what he is doing. I learned a lot about city, country and culture. I enjoyed the company a lot and we had a very good exchange. As I already saw some parts of the city, I was shown even other places which are normally not included. Also they did not mind to spend more time to do so than foreseen. I really recommend anyone who wants to get the most out of the Casablanca experience, to go on a tour with them. Mr Bennis truly wants the participants to have the best experience possible.

The beauty of a culture can only be fully experienced if we are aware of the history behind it. Our tour guide - Bennis had gone to great lengths to provide us with the best possible experience. Not only did we see the standout monuments in the city of Casablanca but also learned a great deal about history before behind the things we saw. Bennis and our driver Rachid were very generous and answered all of our questions articulately. We could not have picked a better guide. Our tour guide prepared us not only for the journey itself but also for the time after that. We learned much about Maroccon lifestyle but also about social ques we could not have known about before; what to do and how to do it. This has made our stay in Casablanca in the days ahead more pleasurable as we feel prepared to better experience the culture on our own.

My guise was very Knowledgeable. Normally I don’t care for history unless it is about interesting works of art like architecture, paintings, etc. I was the only one on this tour due to low tourist season. He made it great and ensured I enjoyed my time. Thank you so much!!! It was such a pleasure and great way to start my stay in Morocco!
