Tour guide was Abdel. He was great! Nice, funny, spoke very clear and understandable English, timed everything thru the day well. He was obviously well known at the places we visited. We were in very good hands with him. We came in on a cruise ship - the first one since beginning of pandemic. We heard of multiple people doing their own thing and feeling accosted by local vendors or street people. We didn’t have that experience at all. Rabat was a beautiful city - manicured grounds, fortresses on the beach, so pretty! The Hassan II mosque was amazing!!! I have never seen anything built in my generation with the amount of detail that this place had. Wow! So glad we saw it!! Impressive! Ricks cafe we didn’t get inside. Not memorable from outside. We visited when it was closed. But glad we went by it. Thank you, abdel, for a great day!

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.

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

Excellent tour perfectly organized with a very attentive and knowledgeable guide.

A great tour of Casablanca and Rabat with a very knowledgeable and patient guide
