It seems that the consensus is that there is not much to keep one busy here. This leaves me with a problem as I have 1.5 days to kill before my tour starts. I land at 11:55 on 13 April and as the tour already include Rabat, Meknes, etc I need to find something to do.
Now the tour company states the following in there notes..is this worth doing for a full day or can it be done on day of arrival.
"A pleasant way to spend the day exploring Casablanca is to wander the old medina and the city walls, then jump in a taxi to visit the Quartiers des Habous - the new medina full of shaded squares and narrow streets, lined with arcades that lead from one souk to another. This is a great place to enjoy a Moroccan coffee and maybe start improving your bargaining skills. Finish the day with a walk along the Corniche, watching the locals enjoy sunset football on the beach."
Alternatively are there places close by, eg. Maarif or El Jadida that make for a good day trip.
