    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.
