Part of a group city tour, we made a stop at the Hassan II Mosque for less than an hour. We only toured the exteriors as there was not enough time to have a guided tour inside the mosque. The grounds are impressive, right by...More
The size of the structure is amazing. However, it was difficult understanding the guide because of the acoustic of the inside structure made everything ring-y. It's worth the visit if you've never been there. I wouldn't pay to return the second time.
This was the one and only place we went to see in Casablanca, and even after a 2-week trip in Morocco, this was a must see. It is amazing and impressive, and our guide was entertaining and informative. We learned a lot and gained a...More
A must visit to this beautiful modern age structure rightfully dedicated to diverse religion. The inner beauty, heated flooring, beautiful chandeliers, Openable skylight etc has to be seen to appreciate. Do not forget to check the admission timings as during prayers entry is not permitted....More

You can just go to the visitor center to the side of the mosque where the museum is and join a tour. I think they go at 10 am most days. There is a small charge. Our main tour guide took us to the office where we sorted... More

If you do a quick search on an online map, you can see where Hassan II Mosque is, right on the shoreline. I expect your port is just to the East, a walkable distance or easy cab ride. We got our tickets when we arrived and only had to wait for the English tour a short time which we spent in the adjacent gallery. I don’t see a place to buy advanced tickets, but I assume there may be. Even if you didn’t get a tour, it would be worth seeing the beautiful exterior and open area outside. I also think there are no tours on Fridays or during prayers, so plan accordingly.
Rabat or Meknes for the night before Chefchaouen (7 Replies)
So originally per my private tour, I would be picked up from Casablanca (I arrive at 11 go to customs), go to the Hassan II Mosque then we would go to Rabat and spend the night there before heading to Chefchaouen in the morning. After two days in Chefchaouen, we would visit Volubis and then stop at Meknes before heading to Fes for two days. Now my tour guide is throwing out the idea of from Casablanca go straight to Meknes, skipping Rabat, for the night to be closer to chefchaouen or at...More

Well you should feel comfortable to ask for clarification if you are not clear - you pay a lot for these kinds of private tours so ask as many questions as you want! you should also check out drive times on Google Maps (although it will usually take longer than their estimates but it gives you an idea) so you know how much driving you are doing each day Sound to me like your guide is trying to cram in far too much, especially on the day of your arrival when you will likely be tired - 2...More
Casablanca, Marrakesh or Rabat (2 Replies)
We have only one day to visit Morocco during our cruise. Which city should we visit? The excursion for Casablanca features Central Market, Mohamed V Square, Hassan II Mosque, Rex Bar, Habbous Quarter, Mahkama Law Court and King Palace. The Rabat excursion highlighs include the Royal Palace, Roman ruins of Chaellah, Hassan Tower, the Medina and Kasbah of the Oudayas. And the Marrakesh excursion includes Marjorelle Garden, Bahia Palace, Djemaa El Fna Square and the Medina. All are interesting...More

I would do Marrakesh instead of Casablanca or Rabat. While Casablanca is beautiful, it is a big city and I don't think it captures the true essence of Morocco. Rabat is also nice, but I felt the only thing to see there is the Royal Palace. The markets in Casablanca and Rabat do not even come close to Marrakesh. Marrakesh has a huge outdoor market with tons of stuff to see. Also Marrakesh is in the desert and you really feel like you are in Morocco with camels and palm trees everywhere, snake...More
We just decided to go to Morocco. Cant wait. Tickets bought. Leave 6.22 JFK return 7.3. RT through Casa. We know its Ramadan. Been reading, a lot here (thank you) we usually hire private guides for our family when we travel. (last year Greece Turkey 2.5 weeks) This trip (2) adults 54 y.o. with our 13 year old and my nephew, 28 will be joining us. Nephew just for 8 days. I am on the fence with Morocco touring. Not sure whether to make riad reservations in Fes and Marrakech and do day...More

Your itinerary is doable but for me it is too rushed - virtually everynight you spend in a different place, no time to relax and actually soak in the atmosphere. For example I dont see the point in going all the way to Chefchaouen and then not even spend 1 full day there. Self drive is certainly an option and will of course be vastly cheaper than a tour but then some people do like to have a guide. Casablanca is probably the best city to get a Jewish history tour - hot air ballon ride...More
