About the guru Tarik

I am a certified Tour Guide in Casablanca. I was living in Libya before, and now my life is going happily in Morocco. For me, life is a nice adventure which is full of opportunities for exploring and learning. My slogan is "Arrive as a guest, leave as a guest!". And my favorite quote is "Happiness is only real when shared".

We start off our tour with a traditional local breakfast in a very local spot. "contact me to know about the food".

Our walking tour starts together at Mohammed V Square "Pigeons Square",  that forms the central hub of Casablanca’s new town, and is home to some of the most striking architecture in the city.

Along with the neighboring United Nations Square, it’s a large palm-tree lined public square that represents the place where the old and new town meet.

Then we visit a small African market "interesting for 1st time Africa visitors".

Followed by a relaxed walk through the Medina (old town) of Casablanca, you will dip into the daily life of the locals and travel back in time while rambling through the narrow streets. Discover some influences from the French colonial era after visiting the bustling marketplace where clothes, spices and traditional leather goods are offered by handcrafts workers.

We will also get to visit a real must-see monument “Hassan II Mosque” with its impressive world’s tallest minaret. Admire the building from the outside and listen to the incredible facts about its dimension. The mosque is known by its highly decorated interior.

(Optional) Finally, we’ll get to know La Corniche, at the magnificent seafront as we may enjoy a walk or simply relax in a cafe with a view of the Atlantic Ocean that offers a less traditional and more holiday escape-side of Morocco. You can dip into the water if you feel daring.

Last, we might finalize our tour with a delicious Moroccan lunch.

I totally enjoyed Tarik's tour. He's very friendly and accommodating. It kicked off with a typical morrocan breakfast that kept us going the entire tour. Then we went to have a typical Moroccan lunch as well. Well done Tarik!
