What people are saying about Casablanca-Settat

This was a fabulous experience. Mohamed, our guide was so friendly and informative. It was a great introduction to Casablanca and the local food available. Our lunch with fresh fish from the market was unbelievable. Cooked for us right outside in one of the little stands in the square. Truly the highlight of the tour---unless you also count the delicious breakfast pastries and the amazing desserts. Yum! Fresh squeezed juice and Moroccan coffee. Great to see the neighborhoods and learn a bit of history too. Highly recommend and worth the time.

This was a great experience and one of the highlights that will stay with me is the trip to the desert. The guide and driver were excellent. You really see a wide range of landscapes and places and the drives are very much part of that experiences. Our tour of Fez was great with a knowledgeable guide as was the guide to the amazing Roman ruins at Volubilis. I would definitely use this tour company again if I return to Morocco

It was just me on the tour, and despite that the operator was professional, informative and we had great conversations about the city and many other things. They also helped with an airport transfer later in the day and speed my bags in the meantime. A great operation.

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

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