What people are saying about Casablanca

For anyone coming to Morocco and wanting to book a tour. I recommend it to visit the cities described here!!! We are very satisfied with the tour itself especially the guide Younes who knew a lot and the driver Moncef who could guide us well in the atlas mountains with his driving skills, what a nice duo with whom you could laugh and they took us to the best and right places. The booking agency easy tranfers I am a little less satisfied with. We had arranged everything through the app get your guide and they wanted extra information to see that we came from Europe. We ourselves are Moroccan and found this very strange. All in all they apologized and upgraded our hotel to a four star. The guide and driver were on time and very relaxed.

Bennis was an excellent guide! This was our first and possibly only time in Casablanca. His English was superb. We saw all the amazing and great spots in the city! The almond cookie, mint tea, fish market, olive market, Medina tours and especially the Mosque were timed perfectly! Our driver, Rhasheed, I think, ridiculously talented. Maneuvered his way thru the Casablanca streets with ease. Very nice tour overall! Highly recommend!

Excellent tour with excellent guide, strongly recommend if you are in Casablanca, the guide was super nice as well as the driver. Best activity in Casablanca Thank you so much! Angie
