Full description
Your Casablanca walking tour begins at Hassan the II mosque, the largest mosque in Morocco and the third largest in the world. Admire the mosque's imposing minaret, which stands at 210 meters tall, then head to the famous Rick’s Cafe, a stylish reproduction of the bar from the iconic Casablanca movie.

Next, follow your guide through the picturesque alleyways of the city to reach the Medina, where you can browse the stores alongside locals going about their daily shopping. From here, visit the nearby palace of Mahkama du Pacha, a grand Moorish-style building featuring mosaics, marble columns, and carved cedar ceilings.

Make your way over to the Habous quarter, also known as the New Medina, and shop for authentic Moroccan goods and souvenirs such as clothing, leather, jewelry, and food. Make a stop at a local bakery next where locals take their homemade breads and pastries to be baked. Enjoy a tasting of some freshly baked bread, then visit one of the oldest pastry houses in Casablanca, tucked in a laneway off the Souq Habous. Sample some traditional Maghribi pastries before washing it down with a coffee or mint tea at a nearby cafe.

I was so lucky to get Bennis, who must be one of the best tour guides ever. This tour is part walking and partly by car and Bennis was very happy to show me everything I wanted to see. I felt at home and Bennis was so generous with his knowledge and time. We walked through the old and new Medina as well as visiting the beaches and the main squares. Bennis treated me to a typical morning breakfast in Casablanca and we chatted about life without rushing and with Bennis sharing information and wisdom. Wonderful experience. I mentioned that I wanted to visit Mosque Hassan II and Bennis arranged it so that I could go during the visit and not losing any time of the tour. Then Bennis and the driver were kind enough to drop me off at a good local restaurant. So grateful for this tour...met lovely people and learnt so much about Casablanca and the history of Morocco.

It is a precious time to learn about Casablanca's history, history and daily market. The guide gave you the opportunity to see the mosque in particular (not included in the original plan, but with a little extra cost). Lastly, the mint tea I drank at the café allowed me to relax in Morocco. It was a really good experience.
