Beijing: Old Beijing e-Bike Adventure
- Small group
- Duration: 2.5 hours
This day trip from Tangier to Rabat is the perfect way to explore and admire Rabat, the capital of Morocco, and a 3-hour drive from Tangier. Meet your driver at the Tangier Port or at your hotel in Tangier and head towards the archeological site of Lixus. This site dates back to the Phoenician period and was a noteworthy port for the Romans. Lixus was settled by the Phoenicians in the seventh century BC and was later annexed by Carthage. After leaving Lixus, head to Rabat, where you will begin your guided tour through the city. Discover the Kasbah of the Oudayas, Hassan Tower, the Mohammed V Mausoleum, the Chellah ruins, the Royal Palace, and the Medina. Also take time to explore the Mohammad VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Enjoy a leisurely lunch at a nice local restaurant before heading back to Tangier.
Your kite-surfing adventure starts at the local tour operator’s water sports store. This is where you will meet your guide for the day before being kitted out with all the necessary equipment you’ll need for your experience. You will then head onto the beach where the real fun begins. If you’re a beginner, your guide will begin by explaining to you the safety aspects, and helping you understand the wind. They will also teach you directly on the beach how to fly your kite. The next step is to go into the water to control your kite while your body drags through the water. Once you control this you will move to the next step, which will be getting on to the board to experience your first meters of kiting. It will then be time to work on your posture and stance to extend your ride on the board even more. If you’ve already got some kite surfing experience, the lesson will be tailored to you...
Leave Marrakech at 08:00, ready for a 3-hour journey to the beautiful Essaouira on the Atlantic Coast. Once you arrive at the port city, formerly known as Mogador, you will have time to enjoy the charming sights of Essaouira, including its ocher-colored walls, the beautiful Moulay El Hassan square, and the souks, as well as the little streets of the city's old Medina. Enjoy a lunch of fresh fish in a local restaurant. During your trip, visit an association of Berber women producing argan oil, see the local markets, and marvel at the gems in the jeweler's quarter. You will return to Marrakech at the end of the afternoon, arriving back to the "Red City" at around 19:00.
The experience was good! Everything was as described, the transportation was clean and the guide was charismatic! However the fact that there was only one guide that had to translate the same thing into 3 different languages (English, Spanish, French as not everyone spoke English) was a bit of a time waster. Essaouira is very nice and definitely worth the visit!
Depart from Marrakech in the early morning and head to Essaouira in a comfortable and air-conditioned van. On the way, visit one of the women's cooperatives producing argan oils and enjoy some mint tea.
Once you arrive at Essaouira, the driver will introduce you to your private guide in Essaouira. After this, head to the port and take the chance to enjoy the excitement of the fish auction.
Visit the medina and enjoy a quick stroll through the shops that interest you. Climb some of the ramparts to get some of the best views of the city. Choose your lunch from a wide range of gastronomic options in Essaouira including seafood specialties, French cuisine, Japanese food, and vegetarians options.
After a guided tour, enjoy free time to do your own exploring before you meet your driver in the late afternoon to return to Marrakech. Enjoy a small ice cream or a refreshing...
After pick-up from your hotel or riad, travel to the Palmeraie where you will prepare for your camel ride in the La Palmeraie oasis. Put on a typical traditional dress and scarf like the locals and go for a ride among the palm trees. Enjoy quad biking after a short 20-minute safety briefing. Along the way, discover traditional Berber villages, see typical houses of the region, and meet some locals to learn more about their way of life, which has remained the same for more than 200 years. Stop for a cup of Moroccan tea and enjoy the silence and serenity before hopping back on your quad bike and continuing your desert ride. Conclude your tour at the base camp and relax on the drive back to your Marrakech hotel.
Amazing experience. The guide was very nice and we really enjoyed our time riding a quad and sharing Mint Tea in the middle of nowhere. Then, the camel ride was nice surrounded by palm trees, totally typical from Marrakech :)
Enjoy the golden sand dunes of Essaouira by thrilling quad bike transit. After a brief safety information session, and after having adorned yourself in protective gear, you will have a tour test to get used to your quad bike and the safety rules. Once this is completed, your 3 hour quad bike tour will begin. Your tour will begin by crossing Oued Ksob to the ruins of the Sultan's Palace that accompany you to the wild beach of Diabat. Following this you will navigate through the magnificent dune fields, driving on both sandy and rocky paths to overlook the Atlantic Ocean.
Perfect! Friendly staff, great introduction to the Quadbikes, fantastic route along the beach and through the dunes. Solely the quads themselves were quite old, but still had the power to get the adrenaline pumping.

I experienced working with Dominic twice. Once to rent an e-bike, which was well worth it on a hot day in Beijing! It was easy to get around, it was fun and he had great recommenations of what to do and see! I spent some time tooling around to see where things were, and hung out at the Houhai lake too! I also went on a Hutong tour with him where he showed me all the great hidden food places and was patient enough to wait while I pinned them on my map. He also shared good historical information which I appreciate as a history learner.
Shortcomings: instead of 7.30 a.m. we were picked up at 7.02 a.m. and the tour guide said he would not be waiting for us. So we had to start the trip with wet hair (4 *) and no make-up. We drove around in the cold bus for 1 1/2 hours to pick up other participants! Now my son has a cold! Otherwise the trip was fine!
Great way to explore old Beijing. Fun and informative. Would recommend for first day of arrival as the journey reveals great places to explore my foot during rest of stay. Thanks much!
The tour was great, the guide was great too, the places visited wonderful,
