It was a great experience of a private road trip. Our car driver/ tour guide took really good care of us. He kept telling various facts about life in Morocco, stopped whenever required for a break and whenever there was a perfect Photo stop. And, yes clicked pictures for you too. The two riads that were booked as a part of this tour were very good as well. He also addressed special requests of food requirements (like vegetarian for us). Most importantly, he was always on time. The tour was a complete value for money and would highly recommend.

Akil was an incredible help and amazing driver. Super kind. The airline lost our bags and after 15hrs of traveling he just was a very calming presence to have around. Not only did he wait an extra 2 hours after we landed because of immigration and the luggage fiasco, but he took us to buy clothes at a really nice spot. Highly recommend this transfer service and ask for Akil

The mosque itself is a wonder, and necessary to see because it is the only one in Morocco that allows non-Muslims inside. Our guide was personable, multi-lingual, and with a wealth of knowledge that made the tour a wonderful last hour and a half in Morocco before flying off to Spain.

This is a must do on any trip to Casablanca! My driver REDA, who also drove the trip to Rabat is fantastic and beyond helpful and accommodating. If you get the early AM or late afternoon (sunset) the pictures are awesome!

Very experienced tour guide. Very friendly and open minded. It was a great pleasure he was sharing all his wisdom with us. Perfect organised as well. Book it and you will get the best of morrocan culture.
