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.
