My family had the privilege to spend a day with Mohamed in June. He was prompt and arranged great transportation. Before the tour he spent some time with us to determine our expectations, offered some suggestions, and then designed a tour with our input. Our tour was 7 hours and we covered Casablanca. Mohamed was very knowledgeable abut the buildings, neighborhoods, and history. His stories kept the group entertained. Mohamed was a delight to spend the day with. I highly recommend Mohamed! Thanks
There were 8 people on this tour and we appreciated the mini bus used which gave us lots of space. Mohamed was an interesting & knowledgeable guide and did everything he could to accommodate our requests. We all enjoyed the day and would recommend Mohamed as a guide with interesting & honest descriptions of Casablanca.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Val, Thank you so much for the very nice comment; I was very pleased to meet you in Casablanca and I enjoyed my time with your group. Thanks a lot!
Mohammed was excellent-picked us up at the airport at the time planned. Had breakfast with us and started the tour-had the driver take us to the hotel to check in then took us to some "off the beaten path" places which we love and took us around so we could see everything we wanted in about a half a day-ended the tour by being dropped off at Ricks Cafe where he had made a reservation for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I really enjoyed my time with you in Casablanca.

Thank you Mohamed, you are a great guide, love the tour !!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, It was a great pleasure meeting you.
I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of Casablanca and certainly would not have seen as much on my own. Mohamed was very informative and attentive to my requests and didn't take me anywhere I didn't want to go. One place was even closed due to it being the weekend, but Mohamed was able to get us in for 10 minutes so I could take some photos.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you; I enjoyed my time with you in Casablanca.
Ramesh R.United States
Good tour, comfortable mini van with AC and safe driver. Mohamed is very knowledgeable and visited some areas not on the usual schedule. Marrakesh is definitely worth a visit.
Ramesh R.United States
Nice tour, enjoyed the commentary. Mohammed was very knowledgeable and gave a nice commentary. Enjoyed the local sights and the food.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much; I enjoyed my time with you.
Jonathan SparrowUnited States
Mohamed took my 18 and 21 year old children on a walking tour of Casablanca while my wife and I spent the day in Fez. My kids really enjoyed the tour and give Mohamed the highest compliments for professionalism, knowledge and an engaging personality. Thanks Mohamed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
A well-rounded tour covering lots of different areas of the city. Mohamed is very talkative, and shared many things about the culture in Casablanca as well as it's architecture, markets, religion, customs, etc. A great way to understand the city you're visiting and Mohamed is a well spoken, personable guy to show it to you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
Mohamed é bastante atencioso, nos passando muitas informações sobre o dia a dia como um morador local., entretanto segue um padrão turístico de visita, indo a lojas comissionadas, por exemplo, tal qual todas as demais excursões do navio em que viajamos. Sentimos um pouco a falta de um programa mais personalizado.
Diane StraderUnited States
Really great guide, lots of local knowledge and great command of English. He also went out of his way to show us things not usually seen with an interesting flair. I would recommend him for any English speaking tourists, and just a nice guy!
Angela TranUnited States
I booked a last minute one-on-one day tour of the city during my 16 hour layover in Casablanca. Mohamed was professional, friendly, and accommodating. We ate at a wonderful restaurant that served traditional tajine food. He was very knowledgeable about the culture and history of Casablanca and Morocco. He is well-traveled and speaks four languages. The direct pick-up and drop-off from the airport was especially appreciated. I highly recommend him if you have a long layover!
Suzan ReznickUnited States
Mohamed was a fabulous tour guide! His English was excellent and he personalized the tour for us, to match our interests. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant to be spending the afternoon with. He took us to a fabulous local restaurant for lunch, where we dined on tagine and lamb kebabs- both favorites of ours. We had a very interesting discussion over lunch about how family roles are so different in Morocco compared to the States. We learned so much, while having a VERY enjoyable day touring!
Robert IsraeloffUnited States
Michael ZaissUnited States
Mohamed was a very good guide. Very knowledgeable about Morocco's history and culture. He knows Marrakech well and took me around to many places. He speaks four languages and loves to engage in conversation. Highly recommend him if you are looking for a guide in Morocco.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael; I was very glad to be your guide, I hope to meet you again in the near future.
Mohamed was the best guide I could ever chose! He took me to the main places in Casablanca and showed so much about the city. The best part is that he explained me a lot about History, culture and religion. I also had the opportunity to meet his amazing family and they made my trip unforgetful. I totally recommend him if you want to have a great time in Morocco!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Erica, it was a great pleasure meeting you in Casablanca.
Sebastian Torres CartagenaCanada
it was amazing! Mohamed, our guide went above and beyond to make sure we had an excellent time. he made customized the entire tour according to our needs. he is a fountain of knowledge. i felt like i had a good grasp of the city by the time the tour was over.
Karim LalaniUnited States
We highly recommend Mohamed to anyone planning a visit to Morocco. He is a very knowledgeable guide fluent in English and Arabic and will work around your schedule. He worked with us to create a customised itinerary for our trip and made excellent recommendations for both sights and foods. We were very impressed with the Moroccan cuisine and the restaurant that Mohammed suggested and had a wonderful meal there. He also made excellent recommendations for shopping in Casablanca.
Andrea JonesHenderson, NV, United States
Mohammed was terrific and gave us a memorable, full of information tour of all of Casablanca He had answers for all of our questions, took us to a wonderful restaurant for a Moroccan lunch and showed us spots we could have not found on our owne I would recommend him highly and wish we had more time to take advantage of his knowledge and friendliness. THANKS SO MUCH MOHAMMED!!
Mark WilkinsUnited States
Mohamed R is a extremely knowledgeable and friendly person who takes time to explain things. More than that, he is able to have a genuine level of converstion that goes deeper into the meaning of the subjects. I am glad to now call him a friend, as well as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, it was a great pleasure meeting you in Casablanca.
Marjorie StanfordUnited States
There could not have been a better way to explore Rabat and Casablanca than our tour with Mohamed! Seeing Morocco through his perspective made it much more meaningful. In addition, he was able to take us inside the Hassan II Mosque and explain the significant parts of the Muslim religion. We had a driver, so Mohamed was able to spend time with us discussing the differences in culture and religion between Morocco and the US. That is what makes travel so enriching.
Larry TedescoUnited States
Mohamed, our tour guide was fabulous. We saw parts of the city that we would never had seen without him.
Eddie BarrocasUnited States
Although Mohamed was a very nice man, he did not live up to our expectations. He tried to please us but seemed nervous and did not understand well what we wanted to accomplish on this tour. He did take us to a wonderful place for lunch.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your comments regarding the tour done on July 24 are very important to me; I really want my customers to enjoy their day in Casablanca, however I was not at my best that day; so thank you for your feedback and please note that your report of an unsatisfied experience is a serious concern for me. So let me express my deepest apologies and the next time you visit Casablanca I will provide you with the service you should expect.
James MurphyUnited States
Eric BautistaUnited States
Mohamed was a very good tour guide. Speaks English fluently and knowledgeable of the sites we visited. He is also very accommodating, customizing our tour depending on how we like it and things to see. He is also resourceful and was able to get us in places that is about to close due to Ramadan. He is an asset to your tour company.
Mohamed was a professional and friendly guide. This tour provides a great overview of Casablanca - the old and new cities, the French quarter, and the corniche. For that reason, I would recommend this tour to anyone. However, we found the tour cost very expensive for 4 hours (perhaps this is indicative of the cost of living in Casablanca??), and did not feel that the services provided were exceedingly better than other, less expensive, tours (in Morocco and other destinations) of similar duration.
Melinda S.United States
Mohamed is a great tour guide, showed us all the highlights - including the cafe that has "the best ice cream" in Casablanca!
A good tour in an interersting city.
Jeanne S.Los Altos, CALIFORNIA, United States
Mohamed was prompt and delivered a great tour. He was responsive to the needs and time requirements of his clients.
Lynn G.Sarasot, FL, United States
We took a short tour with Mohamed and would highly recommend him for your needs, not only in Casablanca but for an adventure to another city in Morocco. We went to the Al Hassan Mosque II, and had a coffee and midday typical, but quite scrumptous meal at an outdoor cafe located at the entrance to the Old Jewish Quarter. His English is fluent, and we could talk about many things.
Mohamed was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, was interested in our experience & spoke English well. We enjoyed our time with him & his driver as we toured Hassan II mosque, the mdina, the French quarter, the waterfront & habous area including the olive market during our long layover in Casablanca. We had excellent discussions about religion & social issues of Morroco during our tour. He met us at the airport & returned us there at the end of the tour for our onward flight. I would highly recommend him as a gu
William HennisUnited States
This was one of the best tours ever. Mohammed was a thoughtful and respectful guide, full of information about Morocco and local culture, and he and his driver took us all over the city to places we never would have seen on our own with two elderly in laws with me and my wife. If you are interested in an inside View by a very intelligent local family man and you only have a few hours off the cruise ship, do not take the ship excursion. Support a local who really knows the city.
Naomi CohenUnited States
I would highly recommend this tour with Mohamed who not only took us to the important sites but added some at our request and our interest. Taking us into the Old City was a great treat, and we are still talking about the lunch at a local café. Thank you
Alson KempUnited States
We could not have had a better guide than Mohamed, along with the clean car and pleasant driver provided. Mohamed was understandable, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and open. The conversations and sights were illuminating and interesting. If you wish to see Casablanca, this is the tour for you. That said, Casablanca is a big, rather dirty city which will not draw us again. However, the options may not be better, if you are there on a cruise. This tour has the advantage of being controllable.
Max BojkoUnited States
Mohamed has a professional appearance and is very knowledgeable about the history, culture and sites of Casablanca. We felt very comfortable being in his presence as we traveled through out the city. He was able to talk with local officials to get us into areas that we would have not attempted on our own. He shared an assortment of local pastries and we ate them with our mint green tea and talked about the many things going in Morocco. I would not hesitate to recommend or use Mohamed again.
Karen HronekUnited States
Tour was excellent and Mohamed was very knowledgeable. The cost of the bus for the extra people was felt to be excessive at $80.00 extra per person.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback. When asked about the possibility of adding additional people prior to the tour date, Ms. Karen was advised/agreed that we would need a bus instead of the mini-van (already booked) and that the cost of that change would be 80USD per person. That high additional price is the result of cancelling the original mini-van (non-refundable at that point) and book a bus with a different driver for the full-day. Best regards, Mohamed
Marjory FlynnUnited Kingdom
Mohamed was a nice chap but we didn't really like Casablanca. The tour was too long (and he did up sell us on time). With hindsight we should have stuck with the shorter tour and just gone to the Hassan II Mosque and the beachfront lido which was quite interesting to see. We were off a cruise ship for one day only.
Abby GluckUnited States
Mohamed was absolutely amazing. He was extremely knowledgable and cared about our interests. He was really open minded and we engaged in lively discussions with him, that we both really benefited from. We truly learned a lot from him and had a great day. If we ever go back to Morocco we will definitely contact him. We very highly recommend booking a Tours By Locals tour with Mohamed!
Trudy SegalUnited Kingdom
On behalf of my friends I wold like to say what a wonderful experience we had with our guide Mohamed - he was punctual/ extremely informative and truly made our visit unforgetttable. We learnt so much about Casablanca thanks to his enthusiasm and vast knowledge - we would have no hesitation in recommending his services.
Patsie BarnesSeneca, SC, United States
Muhammad and his driver were outstanding. Muhammad adjusted our tour schedule to meet the interests of our party with informative tours of Rabat and Casablanca. He entertained us with Moroccan history. We left two coats and a cell phone in our van and did not discover them missing until we were back on our cruise ship. Muhammad took the time to seek out the driver who had kept our items safe. Our entire party found Muhammad a most attentive, knowledgeable and honest tour guide. We highly recommend him.
Marcie GirolamoUnited States
Mohamed was awesome! He was a most kind & gracious host! He is a wealth of information. We were able to see sites in Morocco we would not have other wise seen. He took us for some great local cuisine then took us to the exact spots that we wanted to see. He was flexible & so enjoyable to be around. We learned and saw a lot in our short time in port. I would highly reccomend him as a guide if you want to make the most of your time in Casablanca. Weve used many guides but he is by far one of the best!
Our tour was very good. We were 12 people, and Mr Mohamed was attentive, flexible, with excellent knowledge of the city. We extended our time,in 3 extra hours, and we all were very pleased with the efficiency his choice of places to show us...(old city, French quarter...) and care (there was a an old lady in a wheelchair in our group) from our guide!!!
An excellent tour of Casablanca with Mohamed. He is very knowledgeable and patiently answered all the questions from our 16 year old son about the Muslim culture. He is very well spoken and was able to explain things in a way that the whole family could understand. It was a great way to see Casablanca and get a feel for the city. He also took us to enjoy a traditional tea and breakfast in the Medina which was a real treat. Thanks Again Mohamed!
Victoria WilsonUnited Kingdom
Mohamed met us from our cruise ship as arranged for a 6 hour tour of Rabat and Casablanca. The vehicle used was large and comfortable for our party of 4. Mohamed was most knowledgeable and experienced and we had a very interesting day with him. In Casablanca he took us to the old Medina - we were the only tourists there as the organised tours from the ship do not visit the old Medina. Thank you for a really great day, sorry it was not longer - we will have to return.
Tony WestrayUnited Kingdom
Mohamed met us on time. His English was excellent and his knowledge of Casablanca far beyond the guide book. My wife finds it difficult to walk any length so we stopped and sat regularly. Started with the French and Jewish quarters followed by sweet mint tea and local bread and then by comfortable taxi on to the Mosque - an extraordinary place. The city's main square, another rest stop, the art deco area, an Aladdins Cave of souvenirs and Rick's Cafe - naturally - completed the tour. Good value.
Tony HodgeUnited Kingdom
We had a wonderful private tour of the two sides of Casablanca - the poor and the rich, seeing aspects that standard ships tour couldn't have covered. He met us on time at the cruise terminal and tailored the content to our requirements on foot and by car through the Medina, mosque, old French Quarter and on to the sea side. Not just the sight seeing but discussions about aspects of Moroccan family life and how it contrasts with ours in UK. Altogether a most rewarding visit with a very nice man!
Tsung ChangUnited States
Our group really enjoyed having Mohamed as our tour guide. We had very good communication via e-mail three months prior to the tour. Mohamed has wealth of knowledge about Morocco and region's history, religion, geopolitics, thus was able to answer many questions from the group. He speaks fluent English, friendly and reliable...We recommend Mohamed to any one wanting to have an inspiring tour of Morocco.
Vicki BeanUnited States
Mohamed was wonderful
Eva Maria R.St. Thomas, ONTARIO, Canada
Wonderful experience! I had a 12 hr layover in Casablanca and was able to take a 7-8 hr tour with Mohamed for the day. He was very informative about the history of the city which I thoroughly appreciated and he left me with a positive impression about this beautiful city. The driver was very punctual and very safe. The entire tour was very well coordinated but most especially enjoyable and interesting. If you get a chance to take this tour - then go for it and make sure you ask for Mohamed! Cheers!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very glad that Eva enjoyed the tour! I had a great time showing her what makes Casablanca special!
Maria Fernanda ReisBrazil
Everything went perfect! Our guide (Mohamed) was very nice to my sister and I. He speaks perfect english, was well organized, arrived on time and has good knowledge of the local area. And also a good photographer!! We loved everything!
Patti ThompsonUnited States
Mohamed was great. Picked us up with a driver which allowed him to focus on us. He was fun to be with and extremely knowledgeable. We even went out of the city to the beaches and toured. He was very interested in pleasing us and even bargained for us when we wanted to purchase something. It was my grandson's 14th birthday that day and Mohamed bought him a present! What a great guy and a great guide.
Barbara EisenbergUnited States
Mohammed was waiting for us with his driver at the entrance to the port of Casablanca, as agreed. His English is excellent, and he customized the tour for us as we went along. We had been to Casablanca previously and he had some interesting ideas of other places to see. He told us a bit about himself (he was sent to California on a US State Dept. scholarship!) and was very personable. Highly recommend Mohammed as your Casablanca guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very nice comment, I had a great time with you in Casablanca and I hope to meet you again in the near future, take care, Mohamed
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much I was very glad to meet you!
Alexis GouldUnited Kingdom
We chose a private 4 hour tour from our cruise ship because my mother is in a wheelchair. Our first stop was at the Mosque, which is a magnificent building. My mother didn't feel too good so we took her back to the ship before continuing on our tour. We visited the old Parisian part of Casablanca and the souk, and the Old Medina, which was fascinating. We stopped for a Moroccan Lamb tagine with our guide Mohamed, who was very informative, helpful and great company. We had good driver who was very helpful.
Fran ApplerUnited States
Mohamed was a wonderful guide. Very careful to know he was meeting our needs and imaginative.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very nice comment, I had a great time with you and I was glad to meet you, meet your mother and your friends, I am looking forward to meeting you again in the future, have a nice trip back home Best regards Mohamed
Roger FarrUnited Kingdom
Our party found Mohamed very informative and helpful on our tour around Casablanca.The transport was Excellent and would book another tour with you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice comment, I was glad to be your guide and I spent a great time with you; I would like to take this opportunity to wish you Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! Best regards and wishes Mohamed
We had an excellent time with Mohamed. For our excursion we went from our ship to Marakesh and then back to Casablanca. The only impovement we would recommend is that because of the time of year after our return everything was pretty dark in Casablanca. We would have been better off to see a couple sights in Casablanca and returned from Marakesh in the dark. We will use Mohamed again if we can get back to Morocco and will definately use Tours by Locals as our first choice anywhere they operate.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very nice comment; I also had a great time with you and I would like to meet you once again in Morocco in the future; I would like to take this opportunity to wish you Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! May this season be of joyful cheer and peace with your loved ones.Best Wishes and Regards, Mohamed
Katherine KostiukUnited States
Our experience was terrific. Mohamed and his driver gave us a wonderful insight not only into the country but its people and customs. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. We had a great time, even though we ended up walking in a downpour at the end. It was fun, informative and memorable. We would highly recommend using Mohamed to anyone who wished to see the real Morocco.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great comment, I was very glad to be your guide and I enjoyed very much my time with you, I really hope to meet you again in Morocco in the near future; please send my warm geetings to your husband, he's a wonderful person; please keep in touch. Best regards, Mohamed.
Bob WolfUnited States
Mohamed and his driver did a excellent job. Learned a lot about the town and the culture. The van was excellent for the four of us. He took us to a locals restraunt for lunch that was really great. Overall great time. Thanks
