    I had an amazing time on this trip. Since I was traveling solo, I decided to join a “mini group tour.” Surprisingly, I was the only participant that day, which meant I enjoyed a private tour at the cost of a group one. It was fantastic! Exploring Casablanca and Rabat was truly worthwhile. Zouhair, our guide, impressed me with his extensive knowledge, professionalism, and amiable nature. The tour had a relaxed vibe, and there was no pressure to buy handicrafts or anything else. I wholeheartedly recommend this experience to others.
