What people are saying about Rabat-Salé-Kénitra

We had an amazing unforgettable experience with Rida! All of the tours in Fez, The Blue City, Rabat, and Casablanca were well coordinated with each of the local city guides, riads/lodging partners, highly educational and authentic. I would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone wanting to do a cross country tour around Morocco in a short amount of time. If you appreciate local food as we do, you can always ask for recommendations and the crew will introduce you to their favorite spots for food & drink. They can also introduce you to boutiques specializing in authentic local specialty goods in an otherwise confusing Medina shopping setting -- one of the most exciting purchases for us was a colorful berber rug in Fez. Exploring the Blue City was the highlight of this trip for its stunning architecture and unique monochromatic buildings and houses. Thanks for all of the photos you helped us capture!

We’ll-planned itinerary allowed us to see and experience a lot of what these cities are and offer. The riads where we stayed were clean and comfortable and the staff were helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. The local guides were outstanding. The walks with them were fun and informative. The first thing they always did was talk with us about the plan for the walk and ask if we had changes or suggestions. As the walk progressed, they were flexible in terms of adding stops as time permitted. There was a lot of driving during the 3 days. The driver was excellent, he made regular stops for food/drinks, bathroom and photo breaks. Also, he stopped along the road to show/explain to us geographical and/or historical landmarks. Because of all of the above, the road trip wasn’t overwhelming. Highly recommend this experience.

Mr Fettah was very knowledgeable and informative throughout the whole tour! We started in Rabat Ville train station and walked to Mohammed 5th avenue, St Peter's cathedral, Hassan tower, old medina streets and Kasbah of Oudayas. Mr Fettah explained everything in such a detailed manner which showed how he was passionate about explaining the history and cultural aspects. Very lovely and entertaining tour. Would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting the city for the 1st time!

A wonderful (mostly) walking tour of Rabat. We got to know the city very well. Isham was an excellent guide, courteous, considerate, and very knowledgeable. We saw all that we expected to see and more. The tour was fun and engaging.

We had a delightful visit in a private home and a hands on experience with a charming lady who is a fabulous cook! The meal we shared after class was as good or better than any restaurant meal we’ve had in Rabat!
