I recently took the Best of Morocco with Trafalgar Tours with two friends.
Our tour began with a drive up the coast from the bustling city of Casablanca to the capital city of Rabat where we had the opportunity to visit the Mausoleum of Mohammed V which contains his tomb and those of his two sons, King Hassan II and Prince Abdallah. Across from the mausoleum is the Hassan Tower which was designed by Jabir ibn Allah an astronomer and mathematician so also designed the Giralda of Seville. Both towers were inspired by the Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakesh and the site received World Heritage status in 2012 by UNESCO.
