It was a great experience of a private road trip. Our car driver/ tour guide took really good care of us. He kept telling various facts about life in Morocco, stopped whenever required for a break and whenever there was a perfect Photo stop. And, yes clicked pictures for you too. The two riads that were booked as a part of this tour were very good as well. He also addressed special requests of food requirements (like vegetarian for us). Most importantly, he was always on time. The tour was a complete value for money and would highly recommend.

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!

The mosque itself is a wonder, and necessary to see because it is the only one in Morocco that allows non-Muslims inside. Our guide was personable, multi-lingual, and with a wealth of knowledge that made the tour a wonderful last hour and a half in Morocco before flying off to Spain.

Very experienced tour guide. Very friendly and open minded. It was a great pleasure he was sharing all his wisdom with us. Perfect organised as well. Book it and you will get the best of morrocan culture.

It was a very good tour. The guide and driver was professional and did their best to educate and explain
