Your Own Morocco. Casablanca City Tour

For those interested not only in history but also in the present day. And especially for fans of Art Deco ;)

Casablanca Tours:
Explore Modern Metropolis in Morocco

Are you ready for a journey through time on our Casablanca tours?

How elegant, how glamorous was Casablanca at the beginning of the 20th century! Art Deco districts, breathtaking interiors of hotels and gambling houses, and the trendiest boutiques in the world. Along the waterfront promenades strolled the cream of European and Moroccan aristocracy, ladies flaunting Parisian hats, gentlemen sealing deals. It smelled of money and contraband, refinement and hashish, luck and shattered hopes.

And nearby, in the medina, life continued with a rhythm set for centuries by the call of the muezzin. Just like hundreds of years ago, craftsmen worked, traded, went to the mosque, and, upon leaving, indulged in superstitions here. Donkeys carried goods along narrow streets, while quack doctors lured in gullible crowds. And today, it's much the same.

But there's another Casablanca—the modern one. On our Casablanca full-day and half-day tours, we'll explore this vibrant metropolis filled with frenetic energy, the most promising city in the Arab world, as reflected by numerous rankings and studies. Here, innovative technologies along with stunning modern architecture and design are born. Casablanca is the hub of street art, the fight for women's and LGBTQIA+ rights. TEDx lectures and eco-projects take place in city mosques, and Catholic nuns teach programming to children.

During our Casablanca city tour, you'll have the chance to travel through time and glimpse into all these different lives.

What We'll See:
Iconic Landmarks and Hidden Gems of Casablanca

Our Casablanca sightseeing tours are available in two options: Casablanca half-day walking tours (3.5-hour, Orange Route) or Casablanca day tours by car (6-hour, Orange and Green Routes).

Casablanca Walking Tour (3.5 hours):
  • We'll start with a visit to the magnificent Hassan II Mosque. We'll discuss the role of religion in modern Morocco and why this mosque still sparks so much debate.
  • We'll climb the walls of the old fortress. It's the best spot to try traditional delicacies and chat about the history of piracy, the slave trade, local cuisine, and how it reflects the national character.
  • We'll stroll through the old, and, perhaps, the coziest, Medina in Morocco, untouched by tourist hype.
  • We'll see the synagogue and talk about how the diverse peoples of Morocco coexisted and helped each other for centuries.
  • We'll walk through the picturesque Art Deco districts, and talk about the colonial period and its influence on Moroccan society. And of course, we'll recall many adventurous stories from that time.
  • We'll visit the quarter with Neo-Moorish architecture. We'll talk about the political structure of the country, the role of the king and religion in the lives of Moroccans, self-governance traditions, and the boundaries of personal freedom.
  • We'll stop by the Central Market. If you wish, we can have a tasting of oysters and sea urchins.
  • If you choose the shorter (Orange) route, we'll end the tour in Casablanca with a cup of tea overlooking the snow-white Sacré Coeur Cathedral.

During the Casablanca Walking Tour, we'll have a 1.5 km walk along the ocean from the Hassan II Mosque to the old medina. If this is challenging for you, we can take a taxi (around 3-4 euros).

Casablanca Tour by Car (6 hours):
We highly recommend choosing the 6-hour (Orange and Green) route. There's so much interest in Casablanca that it's impossible to fit it all into 3.5 hours.

After the Orange Route and a lunch break, during which you can rest, we'll continue:

  • We'll visit Notre Dame of Lourdes - a cathedral from the early 20th century with amazing stained glass windows.
  • We'll see the luxurious Mahkama of Pacha Palace. If we're lucky, we might even get a tour inside. We'll learn what it's like to be a civil servant in Morocco and the surprising ways to climb the career ladder.
  • We'll explore the fascinating Habous Quarter built by the French.
  • We'll walk through a non-touristy local bazaar where you won't encounter any hustlers. And it offers the best shopping in Morocco! If you want to buy a souvenir, this is the place to do it.
  • We'll visit artisan workshops.
  • Additionally, we'll have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine in a world-famous bar (and try to guess what's unusual about it), admire Art Deco interiors, and do many more wonderful things.

If you choose the 6-hour Casablanca city tour, we'll have a car and driver at our disposal. We'll pick you up from your hotel and drop you off after the tour. You won't have to carry your purchases.

What We'll Learn:
From History and Traditions to Innovations and Subcultures

Our Casablanca guided tours are the best way to get a comprehensive understanding of Morocco. Here, history, religion, ancient traditions, and superstitions coexist seamlessly with vibrant modern life, new technologies, and progressive social projects. We'll tell you about various aspects of life in this beautiful country—its history and culture, as well as its economy, politics, contemporary design, art, and architecture. And of course, there will be stories about jinn, pirates, and numerous adventurers from the times of the protectorate. We'll conclude our tour by chatting about how Morocco has become the most successful country on the continent in terms of innovation, economy, and social reforms, and how Casablanca has become the most promising city for youth in the Arab world.

Our tour in Casablanca is private, so we'll focus on what interests you the most.
