What people are saying about Casablanca

This 3 day amazing experience was fantastic! I arrived in to Casablanca 2 weeks ago alone, my first time in Morocco and didnt know what to expect. Due to the covid situation, everything was closed and I was left feeling very disapointed and deflated. ... I found this tour and decided to take it before my booked flight to Egypt.... and oh my Gosh, I am so happy that I did because this 3 days completely changed my mind about Morocco and I canceled my flight to Egypt and I am now on my second tour (another 6 days) with the same driver going down South to the Sahara Desert. ... Hassan, the driver has been encredible with his wonderful Moroccan Hospitality and has made my experience here in Morocco great. ... I highly recommend everyone to take a tour or 2 with this company and ask for Hassan to be your driver. ... The company has so many different tours on offer when I come back again when the weather is warmer, I will take a 12 day tour for sure!

This tour -- and our guide Bennis Hicham -- was exactly what we wanted: tour inside the Hassan II Mosque (one of few permitting non-Muslim vistors) and visit the Museum of Moroccan Judaism (only one in Arab World). Bennis was extremely knowledgeable and added numerous "extras" consistent with our interests. If interested in the intersection of the three great Abrahamic religions, don't miss the tour! We would recommend him wholeheartedly.

We really enjoyed discovering Morocco through the imperial cities. Our driver and coordinator were very nice and we felt safe with them. We will keep fond memories of this stay!

Very excellent trip with competent and attentive guides listening to all our concerns. I warmly recommend guide Kalidh and driver Adnan

It is great to see corners with a local that you would otherwise not be able to see.
