As is my way, I’ll start with the only con: I wish the description plainly said how long the drive is. It took us 5.5hrs to get there and 5hrs back, leaving us just under 4hrs for the visit. The driver did stop about 2/3 of the way on each leg to use the washroom, grab a drink/snack, etc. That said: if you are staying in Casa and have a free day, this trip is *well* worth it. Chef is an incredibly unique experience and just about one of the most photogenic cities we’ve been to. The driver was exceptional, and the guide a knowledgeable and friendly local. We were taken to just a few vendors, and we were clear we weren’t looking to shop and so there was no further hard-selling. I get it, everyone has to have their hustle. Even in a short time, the guide gave us a ton of history and showed us all the major spots. The lunch on the terrace facing the Alkasba was exceptional. We would absolutely visit this city again, next time for more than just a few hours.

The car was very clean and comfortable and the guide was very interesting sharing informations about Morocco's culture, social structure, religion, economy and history. Definitely the best way to visit the touristic and the non touristic areas of Rabat.

Very informative tour and very kind tour guide. He explained everything with detail and was patient with us when we wanted to take pictures. Highly recommend!

Youseff was great with my family . He made us feel really welcome and gave us many highlights of beautiful Tangier . I highly recommend !
