Our guide Bennis Mohammed was fantastic. He was a very knowledgeable man with a kind and caring nature. He showed us the important aspects of the different regions of the beautiful city of Casablanca explaining the history and how the different cultures and faiths have lived together here over the years. He also explained to us the philosophy of King Mohammed VI to preserve the buildings of the past so that future generations can understand how the city has evolved. The tour finished with a photo stop to appreciate the beauty of Hassan II Mosque from across the nearby bay. Well worth it.

Fabulous tour! I saw much more of Casablanca than I would have on my own. Bennis is a kind, charismatic guide. He has an affinity for Morocco and great knowledge about Casablanca. Rachid, the driver who accompanied up (yes, there was a part of the walking tour that we needed a ride to!), was equally kind and accommodating. If you get a chance to add on the Hassan II Mosque, say YES!!! Absolutely stunning.

This tour was absolutely incredible. Mohammed is so knowledgeable, punctual and accommodating. We strongly recommend this tour to see the highlights of Casablanca and enjoy the landmarks at a steady pace. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and especially loved the insight into Casablanca’s day to day. This tour is very much worth it!

We enjoyed a really interesting tour and learned a lot about the Maroccan culture. Espacially, we loved the jokes and sweet, we were able to try. Hisham was very friendly and answered all of our questions. Moreover, we had a great group with good conservations.

The guide we were lucky enough to have assigned (Zacaria) proved to be very professional and prepared.
