Explorez le centre culturel, historique et économique du Maroc. La visite de Casablanca ou de Dar El Beida, comme l’appellent la plupart des gens, est un excellent moyen d’avoir une vue d'ensemble de la ville.
Despite initial confusion regarding pickup time and a first guide/driver who spoke no English and very limited French, it all worked out. Our principal guide, Mousa, spoke many languages (including excellent English) and gave us over 2.5 hours a great introduction to the sights of Casablanca, but importantly, also to Moroccan history and culture. We did not do the tour inside the Mohammed VI mosque which led to the initial confusion on when Mousa would join us. Ask for Mousa; he is excellent!
Our guide was exceptional. We truly enjoyed the tour with a private driver and a very knowledgable guide. Amongst other places we were taken, we visited the Hassan II Mosque which was well worth the visit.
Our tour guide and pick up were excellent, He was waiting at agreed spot and spoke very good English, timing was off for tour of Mosque and should be notes on proper attire for women to enter a Mosque, which did cause us the delay which led to us not going inside. The rest of the city is just good, market was fun don't let them take you to their cronies shops. food market was fun, wew did not eat or drink in this town
This tour provided a good overview of Casablanca. The guide did mention repeatedly how this isnt a touristy city and there isnt much to see, but that wed cover what there was. The visit to the Hassan II mosque was definitely the highlight absolutely breathtaking. We didnt go into the mosque as we hadnt brought enough money wanting to keep funds back for a tip, so be aware of that cost if you take this tour. I think it was 120 DH per person to enter the mosque.
Our visit to the medina market was also impressive. So many vendors, but so few customers it seemed! Definitely meant we were a centre of attention, as tourists. This was clearly not peak season for tourists as we saw pretty much no others.
Ricks Café was okay we had never seen the Casablanca movie so there was nothing for us to recognize. We also visited a special exhibition which was just a few vendor carts selling food. The medina was far more activity.
The low part of the tour was definitely when we were taken to a carpet store and a sales guy tried to pressure us into buying a carpet. Having gone through this miserable experience in Turkey before, it was certainly not appreciated. The sales guy then got annoyed when we said we were interested in none of the carpets, and he complained about us to our tour guide. He spoke Arabic but it was angry with lots of hand gestures, all in front of us. Not cool. We were then taken across the road to a medicinal herb-type shop but the sales guy there was much more apathetic.
The tour guide Sami was very friendly but we unfortunately found his accent extremely difficult to understand. I only caught about 50 of what he said. On a few occasions when I really wanted to know what hed said I had him repeat something several times, but I still couldnt understand. So unfortunately we missed out on a fair bit on this tour.
We still had fun though, and were glad we did it. We will book with Viator again.
