This was a fabulous experience. Mohamed, our guide was so friendly and informative. It was a great introduction to Casablanca and the local food available. Our lunch with fresh fish from the market was unbelievable. Cooked for us right outside in one of the little stands in the square. Truly the highlight of the tour---unless you also count the delicious breakfast pastries and the amazing desserts. Yum! Fresh squeezed juice and Moroccan coffee. Great to see the neighborhoods and learn a bit of history too. Highly recommend and worth the time.
