One Day: Marrakech - Casablanca

Meet your driver at your hotel or riad for an early pick up to Casablanca ( 07h00 AM ).

Upon arrival at the metropolitan city, meet your local guide who will join you in the vehicle to start your visit to Casablanca.
First, you will head to the legendary Hassan II Mosque. You will witness its majestic 210-meter tall minaret dominating the sky as you approach. The Mosque was designed by a French architect and took 6 years to build. The building blends the Islamic architecture and Moroccan elements.

Afterward, we will head to the United Nations Place, witnessing art deco buildings on the sides of the street. Then we continue to the Arab League Square hosting the ‘’ Palais de LA Justice ‘’.

We had an amazing experience in Casablanca, and we were really lucky to have Abdel as our tour guide. Our group had a fantastic time. Abdel was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive throughout the tour. We spent a delightful five hours exploring the city and gained a wealth of insights into its history and the everyday lives of its people. One thing that stood out was Abdel’s honesty and lack of pressure when we visited certain shops. We were all impressed by his energetic personality. We wholeheartedly recommend this trip to everyone!

Even though the journey to Casablanca was quite lengthy, the day turned out to be absolutely amazing. Our driver was top-notch, and our tour guide was simply fantastic. His understanding of the city was unparalleled. We had a wonderful time exploring the Medina. Later, we were treated to a visit to a restaurant located in the historic Medina, which used to be a synagogue. The meal we had there was truly one of the best we’ve ever experienced.

The trip was quite enjoyable, though it felt a bit long. Ahmed, our driver, was really careful on the road, and our tour guide in Casablanca, Fouad, was incredibly informed. He did an excellent job sharing insights about the local culture. I truly suggest considering this excursion.
