Rabat Private Day Trip From Casablanca
Our family really enjoyed the visit to Casablanca and Rabat! Our guide, Mustafa, was very polite and took us to some of the most historic and beautiful sites in both towns. Most spectacular in particular was seeing some of the most incredible religious architectural wonders that seem to highlight peace and community among the vast historic people of Morocco.
We did the tour with little knowledge of Morocco and left Mustafa’s tour with a significant understanding of the vast culture and history of Morocco. We are very grateful to have done this tour. If you are planning to go to Morocco, we highly recommend this tour.
One Day Trip From Casablanca To Rabat To Explore The City
Our guide Said met us at our pickup point (the oldest Mcdonald’s in Casablanca) 30 minutes before our van arrived, which was delayed about 20 minutes due to heavy traffic.
During the next 8 hours, Saïd introduced us and 3 other couples to these 2 cities. They highlighted the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca and the Mohammed V Mausoleum in Rabat. Said is very knowledgeable about both cities and made informative presentations of all the sites visited. And that gave us enough time to walk around on our own; Not once did they rush us.
We stopped for lunch at a local restaurant to taste delicious Moroccan cuisine. At the request of the couple, Said stopped at an argon oil store where we met and bought petroleum products. Back in Casablanca, we were dropped off at our hotel. Said is a professional, knowledgeable, and courteous guide. Our driver was very conscientious and focused on the difficult task of driving in these 2 cities.
Get to know Casablanca in your day trip to Rabat
While not as atmospheric as other Moroccan cities, Casablanca is the best representation of the modern nation. This is where the money is made, where young Moroccans come to seek their fortune, and where businesses and creative industries thrive.
The city’s beautiful Moorish buildings, combining French colonial design and traditional Moroccan style, are best admired in the city center. Visitors spending time there, in Quartier Habous and the seaside suburb of Ain Diab, are sure to step into the local rhythm and find that this former pirate hideout looks into the future, embracing urban sophistication with a European flavor that has underpinned life here for a century.
The number of construction projects underway here is simply extraordinary: major renovations include those of Place Mohammed V and Parc de la Ligue Arabe, and new public buildings include the Grand Theater of Casablanca.
Get to know Rabat in your day trip from Casablanca
Rabat is the capital of Morocco and the seventh-largest city in the country with an urban population of around 580,000 (2014) and a population of over 1.2 million. It is also the capital of the administrative region of Rabat-Salé-Kénitra. Rabat is located on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the Bouregreg River, opposite the town of Salé, the city’s main passenger town.
Rabat was founded in the 12th century by the Almohad ruler Abd al-Moumen as a military town. The city grew steadily but entered a long period of collapse after the collapse of the Almohads. In the 17th century, Rabat became a paradise for barbarian pirates. The French established a protectorate over Morocco in 1912 and made Rabat their administrative center. Morocco gained its independence in 1955 and Rabat became its capital.
Rabat, Témara, and Salé form a community of over 1.8 million people. Limousine problems reduced Rabat’s role as a port. However, Rabat and Salé still have important textile, agrifood, and construction industries. In addition, tourism and the presence of all foreign embassies in Morocco make Rabat one of the most important cities in the country. The Moroccan capital was ranked second by CNN in its “Best Travel Destinations 2013”.  It is one of the four imperial cities of Morocco, and the city of Rabat is a World Heritage Site. Rabat is accessible by train via the ONCF system and by plane via the neighboring Rabat-Salé airport.
