What You Can Expect

Casablanca Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Admire the external detail of the Hassan II Mosque

If you're short on time or have just arrived in Casablanca, this tour is a great way to get an overview of the city. Admire the wonderful architecture and detailed mosaics of the Hassan II Mosque from the outside, and be sure to re-visit it after your tour!

Start your small-group tour with a pickup from your central Casablanca hotel or the Racine area of the city. Settle into a comfortable coach, minivan or car — depending on the size of your group — and begin your sightseeing.

As you explore, learn interesting facts about Casablanca and its place as Morocco’s largest city and main commercial hub. Each sight on your itinerary comes with a story,  so as you look around, hear all about its history from your guide.

Head first for United Nations Square, the buzzing heart of Casablanca, and take in Mohammed V Square and the colors, sights and sounds of the Central Market. Continue to the elegant Habbous quarter — the new medina — to view the tree-lined streets designed by the French in the 1920s.

Stop to admire the ornate exterior and gates of the Royal Palace; see the Mehkama courthouse; and visit the Cathedral Notre Dame de Lourdes, a striking 1956 church graced with spectacular stained glass windows.

Next, view the Hassan II Mosque, Africa’s biggest, and one of the world’s largest mosques, built in the late 1980s. Marvel at the beautiful façade and hear how it took over 6,000 artisans to carve the wood, granite and marble of the exterior.

Lastly, enjoy free time to stroll along the Ain Diab Corniche, Casablanca’s palm-dotted promenade. Pass the stylish restaurants and swimming pools and admire the views of the glittering Atlantic as you walk.

Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your original start point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

It was a wonderful tour. It was just the two of us and the tour guide was wonderful and very accommodating.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

We were very lucky. Our tour was during Ramadhan and we had an excellent guide to ourselves who tailored the tour to our exact requirements. We could not have been happier.

4 star rating: Recommended November 2015

This half day tour was great however, I was brought once again to a carpet factory as well as an Argon oil place. I didn't mind the carpet place on this tour as they were not pushy and I actually bought a rug! The tour manager Mohammad was really nice and provided some great information about Casablanca. He took me to places that were not on the itinerary, like Rick's Café!

4 star rating: Recommended March 2014

Nice tour. Driver and guide on time. Allowed us some flexibility. Driver spoke great English and was very knowledgeable.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2014

The tour guide was very informative, the van was comfortable and it was a good summary of the city sites. Unfortunately out tour ended after 2 hours when the description said it would be 3 hours, and we only stopped at 3 out of the 6 places listed.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2014

The guide was great. The trip to the carpet place wasn't. We didn't ask to go there and didn't need the hostility and anger from the owners when we didn't want to buy anything.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2015

Friendly tour guide, convenient ride in an airconditioned van in Casablanca.

- Only very superficial information provided. Short stop at Hassan II Mosque for taking pictures without further explanations.
- Tour guide enquired repeatedly about my financial means and made hints about expecting a tip.
- About 40 minutes were spent at a carpet and oil shop. This was a paid tour. I therefore consider this highly inappropriate and a show of disrespect for customers.

Fairly average tour and we were taken to places we didn't particularly want to go to...eg carpet selling shop and oil selling shop. And the guide was the only guide we've had who actually asked for a tip to feed his children!!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2015

The guide was informative but he was more interested in taking us to a rugs shop and a souvenir shop, where we got the hard sell from the proprietors. It was obvious the guide gets a kickback for any sales he brings their way. I wasn't a happy tourist !!!!
