The option of paying a small amount in cash to see inside the mosque was the best surprise.

Kaja_P, Jan 2023
My guide Mohamed was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, easy and relaxing to be around. He took his time and didn't rush me, encouraged me to browse and explore etc. It was a great first day experience in Casablanca. Thank you my friend!
Memorable day trip thru Casablanca
Maria_P, Dec 2022
Our guides went above and beyond in making this day a memorable experience. They showed a sincere desire in making us feel welcome and happy along every step of the tour. They extended our trip since we were late due to airline delays which was unexpected. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun positive experience in Casablanca.

Linda_F, Dec 2022
A very knowledgeable guide who worked hard to show us both old and new medinas of Casablanca plus additional sights (a driver appeared at the end to take us to Mohammed square and to a stunning cross-water view of the Mosque). I appreciated the guide's efforts and kindness. Would suggest more structure to the walking tour, possibly even with a handout or map, to help clients better understand what we are seeing.
Excellent
nirlep_H, Nov 2022
Guys,this way exceeded my expectations.It truly was a great tour.We covered so much in just over 4 hours....that i did not even know half of the things i saw on this tour.You would never find or notice the points of interest in this tour,and the guide(Hicham) was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of my questions with detail.You also get to see all 3 sections of the city,and the bits that are really far,you get driven too....a very satisfying experience. Thanks Hicham,
The guide was totally...
Bill_S, Nov 2022
The guide was totally awesome. Great personality, informative and pleasant. The Mosque and old Medina were deyond my expectations. Would do it again.
Wonderful morning and afternoon with Mohamed
Kevin_S, Nov 2022
On this tour, we were lucky to have Mohamed as our guide. He answered all our questions, maintained an easy pace, tracked down guests who got separated from the group, offered to extend the tour to see other sites then arranged lunch (we paid for our meals) at a great restaurant. I can't say enough good things about this day.
Great way to spend a morning in Casablanca!
Stuart_S, Oct 2022
Excellent tour guide, knowledgeable, friendly, humorous, kind and caring. Led us on a fascinating path through the old and new towns that we could never have navigated on our own. Highest recommendation!
Great guide Bennis...
Francois_S, Oct 2022
Great guide Bennis Mohamed who showed us a lot of extras. Taxi driver very professional as well. Excellent overview tour.
Excellent guide and interesting sites
Rory_H, Oct 2022
Bennis was an excellent guide and our was very helpful as well. Wonderful contrasts between the Old Medina and the varied architecture of the French protectorate. Loved our stop for mint tea and visit to the Central Market
Great Casablanca walking tour
April_T, Oct 2022
Great experience with the tour guide (can recall his name) he was very accommodating and had great information
Orientation to Casablanca city
Richard_E, Oct 2022
Tea breaks and lunch were highlights. The mint tea is great. Bennis our guide and our driver Radish we’re great. Unfortunately on Sunday the shops in the souk were closed so wandering about in the Medina was not very interesting. The visit to the Corniche was good. No access to churches or inside the synagogue or palace and no museums were visited other than a local crafts site. Unfortunately there was no one at this facility to show or demonstrate any of the crafts. Only exterior views of other buildings. Overall the tour gave us a good orientation to the city. Our lunch was at a great restaurant and I was fortunate to meet 3 other very nice travelers on the tour.
Take this tour early in your trip
Merryl_B, Sept 2022
It was a great way to understand the city and get a first taste of Casablanca. Bennis is an excellent guide.

Amazing Moroccan Experience
Chukwudi_E, Aug 2022
My tour guide Bennis was incredible, very kind as well as knowledgeable. He was always patient and allowed me plenty of time to take pictures when the opportunity presented itself. He also went above and beyond to show me all of the beauty of this country and I would definitely recommend him as a guide for anyone who wishes to visit not only Casablanca but Morocco!
Delightful way to explore a vibrant city!
Nisha_V, Aug 2022
After exploring Casablanca on our own for a few hours we realized we would benefit from a guided tour. Indeed we did, so happy to did this one! Our guide, Bennis Hicham, was so knowledgeable and our experience was wonderful - we loved the sights but also the experience of experiencing the city as businesses began opening and the things were coming to life. We also enjoyed meeting the other travelers. Hicham made sure we had a fantastic experience. A delightful adventure, highly recommend!
Elevating Profit over People.
Sally_G, Aug 2022
We were forced to cancel because our ship did not stop in Casablanca as planned. We had no control over this decision. We notified Viator immediately, but it was 12 hours instead of 24. Viator refused even a partial refund. We understand the policy, but this seems to be poor customer service. Be sure your plans are iron clad if you book this at your own risk. Even with extenuating circumstances, you will be out the full price of the tour.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Hi Sally – Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are sorry that you were unable to participate in the intended tour, as your ship was no longer docking in Casablanca as planned. We do have flexible booking conditions and we offer a full cancellation policy if we are notified 24hours in advance. We note you had extenuating circumstances, which meant you were unable to notify us in time. Please send full details of your circumstances to our customer care team, who will be happy to investigate this and assist you. Customercare@intrepidtravel.com.

Best tour ever
JeanneMarie_R, Jul 2022
We absolutely would recommend this tour. The tour guide, Bennis, was amazing. The provided driver was fabulous too. They took us to amazing paced and gave us so much info. So much better than trying to see the city on our own.
Great tour
Ellen_O, Jul 2022
I had a great tour with guide Bennis. It ended up just being me on the tour, which made for a great trip! Bennis was a great guide and the tour covered all you could want to see in Casablanca; I would recommend!
Informative, interesting and a pleasant tour
