icon Day 1: Casablanca

Location: Casablanca

Accommodation: Hotel Campanile Casablanca

Meals: DINNER

Arrive at any time. Tonight, meet your CEO and fellow travellers at the welcome meeting, then head to a local restaurant to enjoy a delicious North African specialty — the famous "pastilla" — for your first dinner with the group.

ACTIVITY: Your opportunity to meet your CEO and fellow travellers, and learn more about your tour. Don't forget to see the notice in the lobby (or ask reception) for the official time and place to meet up with the group.

ACTIVITY: Visit a famous local restaurant for a taste of classic Moroccan cuisine. Enjoy the pastilla, a savoury pie made with a flaky, layered dough called warqa. Typically filled with meat, seafood and vegetarian options may be available on request. With origins steeped in Moorish influence, pastilla is enjoyed on special occasions such as weddings, or at traditional restaurants.

icon Day 2: Casablanca

Location: Casablanca

Meals: BREAKFAST, LUNCH

Prepare for a full day of exploring this fascinating city. Start with a visit to Hassan II Mosque, the largest in North Africa with its world-famous minaret rising nearly 700ft high. Continue to the Habous district and stop by Pâtisserie Bennis for a traditional Moroccan pastry. See the striking Mahkama du Pacha, then head to Marchė Central and select the day's best catch for lunch. Stop by the Art Deco-inspired Mohammed V Square and modernist Notre Dame Church. End the day with sky-high views of Casablanca, before heading back to the hotel. This tour ends at approximately 6pm. For travellers continuing on to another G Adventures tour, your CEO will help facilitate the joining of the new group starting in the evening.

ACTIVITY: See Africa’s largest mosque and the world’s tallest minaret (210 m, 689ft) with an included visit to Hassan II Mosque. Admire this massive work of art completed in 1993, and strikingly located on land jutting into the Atlantic.

ACTIVITY: Visit a family-owned bakery in the heart of Casablanca's historic Habous district. Open since 1930, Pâtisserie Bennis is a local favourite for their handcrafted traditional Moroccan pastries, which range from sweet to savoury.

ACTIVITY: Designed by French architect Auguste Cadet, Mahkama du Pacha is a stunning example of traditional Moorish architecture adapted for modern use. Built in the 1940s with elements such as mosaic tiling, stucco and carved cedar, it has served as a courthouse, governor's residence and parliamentary hall.

ACTIVITY: Explore the Marchė Central's colourful produce and fish section. Choose from a variety of fresh seafood on offer, then head to your table while a nearby restaurant prepares your seafood lunch. Markets are always a great place to observe locals going about their day!

ACTIVITY: Stop by one of Casablanca's busiest public squares, a popular meeting point for both locals and tourists visiting the city centre. Admire the Moorish and Art Deco inspired architecture that surrounds the square, including the elegant Wilaya Building framed by tall palm trees.

ACTIVITY: The Notre Dame de Lourdes Church is a modernist building with strong angular features, built in the 1950s. Marvel at the stained glasswork, vibrant with red and blue hues, by acclaimed French artist Gabriel Loire.

ACTIVITY: Head up to Sky28, the Casablanca Twin Center's fine dining restaurant, for incredible views of the city.
