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.

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.

We enjoyed our city tour with Ahmed, who was very knowledgeable and patient with our many questions. The transportation and driver were also excellent.

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!

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.

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.

Everything started off good. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I was the only one on the tour btw. took it since I was on a long layover.
Pros: very educative, detailed facts, very friendly, and on time. I was able to see parts of the city I would not have been able to go alone. He dropped me off a restaurant he recommended, near my hotel.

Cons: was less than 2.5 hours, I was told the pillow case I bought at the carpet shop was worth 250 usd. I was able to get it to 80 usd. You must bargain...this is Africa. Only to find the EXACT same pillow case in the airport souvenir shop for 40 euro 45 usd. The tour guide should have been helping me get a fair price, rather than telling how valuable the pillow case was so I would get it. That is exploitation of his tour guests which are 90 american.
My moroccan taxi driver couldn't believe I paid that much and said it was worth 30. He shook his head in disbelief that my tour guide didn't help me get a fair price.
I also bought arnica oil at the oil shop. Plain, cheap little bottle but paid 20 usd. The oil is seems to be just like the kind you get in the US and worth only 8, at most.
I also found it weird that my tour guide was asking what kind of car I drive and how much I pay for rent. ex. that house is worth xxx, how much do you pay where you live?,
At the end, I gave the driver equivalent to 5 and at first the tour guide 4 but was searching for more in my wallet trying to do the conversion in my head, when he said oh come on, that's it? I have kids to feed. He should have know I was looking for more. I ended up just giving him 10 more since that is what i found.
So thats 90 75 plus 15 in tips for a 2.5 hour tour. Ridiculous, considering the cost of living in Africa is a small fraction of the cost in Europe or US. And frankly, the city is not that impressive. Wish we could have gone in the marketplace. That would have been cool.
