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.

Exceptional is the adjective that I would use to describe our experience yesterday on our walking tour with Hassan. He was a fantastic guide demonstrating his expansive knowledge of the culture of Morocco’s historical. He went above and beyond! He was prompt, personable, witty, and all-around a pleasure to spin the day with. It was a perfect way to start off our Morrocan vacation!

amazing experience, highly recommended. guide definitely knew what he was talking about. knew the answers to all questions. amazing way to visit and learn about the city. learning lots of facts. also recommended great places to visit for both food and evening activity.

This is a must do on any trip to Casablanca! My driver REDA, who also drove the trip to Rabat is fantastic and beyond helpful and accommodating. If you get the early AM or late afternoon (sunset) the pictures are awesome!

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