What people are saying about Casablanca

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.

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.

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!

If you do not have much time to cover all over Morocco, this activity would be one of the most recommended to cover few best cities in just 3 days & its really worth every penny!

Premium experience with great and flexible guide and driver. Would recommend early afternoon tours so you can enjoy sunset at the end during the winter months.
