BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY
Your one stop Tennis Destination
LET’S GET STARTED
DAY 1 CASABLANCA
The excitement of your personalized tour begins when you first start planning your trip, even before you land in the Casablanca airport. It will only start to feel real when you walk out of the airport and see your tennis destination Morocco staff. English speaking driver, your soon-to-be friend, smiling at you. The drivers are part of what make your experience different…they are the best parts of the experience because they help you see the real Morocco. Mo Ridaoui has interviewed a dozen and hand picked who is best for Tennis Destination. Your driver will take you to your hotel. As soon as you feel settled, we will take you to Hassan II, one of the largest mosques in the world. Loaded with religious and historical significance, it will awe you with its sheer size and incredible architecture.
You will be able to see the interior during your guided tour. The mosque is right on the water, and it has glass flooring in one section so visitors and worshippers can see the beauty of the Atlantic below. Smell the salty ocean air as you step out again to take a picture of the exquisite minaret. You will also be visiting the bazaars, playing tennis or getting a massage.
DAY 2, Rabat
After breakfast, we will be going to one of the nicest tennis clubs, ODEP, in Casablanca where we will get our tennis fix. We will be drilling and playing with some of the club players. Then we will be heading to Rabat where our first excursion begins at the impressive Dar al-Makhzen Palace, home of Morocco’s King, where independence was declared in 1956. Continue to the ancient necropolis of Chellah, now abandoned and overgrown by fruit trees and wild flowers. From the viewing platform, see the expansive ruins of this once-great Roman City. On to the magnificent marble Mohammed V Mausoleum, built in traditional Moroccan style, dedicated to the founder of modern Morocco. Observe the minaret of the Great Mosque and the towering 12th century red sandstone Hassan Tower, Rabat’s most famous landmark. Afterwards, we will visit Kasbah les Oudaias in the old part of the city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its commanding views over the river and ocean from its clifftop perch. Time to stroll along the lanes of the perfumed Andalusian gardens, designed by the French during the colonial period.
We will return to Casablanca for a nice dinner and call it a day.
