Both Abdel the guide and Sabi our driver were tip-top. Incredible service and kindness all around. They provided very personalized service, even skipping things on the planned tour we’d already seen (which we would have been ok with doing — we knew what we signed up for) to see a few different things on the same route. All of the GYG trips booked in Morocco were exceptional.

A great way to see Casablanca. Our guide Abdel was fantastic. His passion for his country, people, and city were evident. I got to know more about the history of Morocco and the people that I would not have learned doing sight seeing independently.

This is a great little tour of the city. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained all in detail. He took us to great places and made funny jokes. We highly recommend it.

Premium experience with great and flexible guide and driver. Would recommend early afternoon tours so you can enjoy sunset at the end during the winter months.

Abdel was very helpful and very informative abt the interesting places to see in Casablanca.
