    Fantastic experience! Perfect one day trip outside of Marrakech, getting to see an Argan Oil Cooperative (Not mentioned in the description—so glad we got to do it!), the Atlas Mountains, a waterfall, the desert…the camel ride was a little bit of a letdown (they took you in a circle around the ranch area, with all the camels tied together, and a guide leading it, but the guide didn’t talk at all or give interesting data about the camels; we just walked, very slowly, in silence in a big circle) but still cool to see the camels and ride. Abdul was a fantastic driver/guide for the day. Fun, funny, knowledgeable, and kind. Ibrahim was also a good guide for the hiking portion. The vehicle was also nice and comfortable. Bottled water was said to be included, but was only received at lunch; it would have been nice to have in the car and/or for the hike. We would totally choose this tour again!!

  • Marrakech: Half-Day Desert Quad & Dromedary Tour

    2. Marrakech: Half-Day Desert Quad & Dromedary Tour

Your guide will provide you with all the necessary instruction and equipment, including nomadic dress, for your dromedary tour. Upon your dromedary, see what life is like outside the bustle of Marrakech. Visit a Berber village and enjoy a tea break in the desert. Experience the hospitality and authenticity of Morrocans. Then dismount, put on your helmet and gloves and speed through the desert on top of your quad bike. Race among the palms underneath the vast blue sky and discover an open and thrilling world that awaits just outside the big city.

    The quad ride was fantastic, the guide looked after everyone and made it easy for everyone to have fun. The stop in the berber village included a tasty mint tea and a nice pastry as a snack. Just regarding the camel, they couldve treated the animals a little better, as one was in visable pain when we got on & off. During the ride it was fine just at these moments it made us feel a little uncomfortable. With a little more loving treatment it wouldve been 5 stars easy!! Thanks for the tour guys!

    Both me and my partner was sceptical about booking this trip due to there being no reviews. Yet it’s been our best trip yet! Private transfer that was on time, drivers were very friendly and made us feel comfortable. We was taken on our camel ride by a man called Ahmed who welcomed us to Morocco and held a friendly conversation throughout the journey. Traditional clothing was offered by the team, followed by tea in the desert. It’s a trip not to miss :)

They will then guide you into the Palmeraie and on through authentic villages and green palm groves. Discover how the locals live outside the city center.

    Overall it was nice but there was few things that could be improved. First of all during our first stop to see a village, the guide got a little too deep in the history of the village and Islam in general which was interesting only for first few minutes. The Argan oil house was a nice experience with breakfast and tea served for us there. One thing that was the most disappointing was the camel ride as the spot was just on the side of a road with all the camels tied together so that when we were riding them, camels head was tied to the other camels bum in front of him. It just felt quite uncomfortable and definitely not what we thought it would be.

    HONESTLY: it was súper amazing! Mustapha (Musti) was our 26-year-old guide and he was truly incredible! The trip is long, but the views and all the stops are 100% worth it. We were just a group of 6 in a airconditioned van. Compared to other tours with over 8 people, this was just perfect!! All people from our group were between the age of 22 and 28, which resulted in a great atmosphere. Even though you don’t really have the ‘famous sand dunes’, the views, sunset and sunrise are AMAZING. DEFINITELY WORTH EVERY EURO!

Shukran Said!

Fantastic experience! Perfect one day trip outside of Marrakech, getting to see an Argan Oil Cooperative (Not mentioned in the description—so glad we got to do it!), the Atlas Mountains, a waterfall, the desert…the camel ride was a little bit of a letdown (they took you in a circle around the ranch area, with all the camels tied together, and a guide leading it, but the guide didn’t talk at all or give interesting data about the camels; we just walked, very slowly, in silence in a big circle) but still cool to see the camels and ride. Abdul was a fantastic driver/guide for the day. Fun, funny, knowledgeable, and kind. Ibrahim was also a good guide for the hiking portion. The vehicle was also nice and comfortable. Bottled water was said to be included, but was only received at lunch; it would have been nice to have in the car and/or for the hike. We would totally choose this tour again!!

This trip was an amazing way to experience the beauty just outside of Marrakech. Our day started with our driver, Hassan, picking us up in Marrakech and taking us to the mountains. He was very engaging and told us the history and pointed out some amazing points of interest along the way. Once we got to the mountain town of Imlil, his friend Ibrahim took us on a hike through the villages in the valley. He even treated us to tea in his family home, with a view that dreams are made of. At the end of our hike, we were provided lunch at another beautiful location overlooking the villages in the valley and the mounts surrounding them. After Ibrahim dropped us off with Hassan, Hassan took us to Agafay Desert to take in the views and ride camels. All in all, this is a can’t miss experience. Special thanks again to Hassan and Ibrahim for making our journey a memorable experience.

We had an awesome day!! Our driver Hassan was incredibly friendly and gave us some great information as well as served as an awesome DJ throughout the day! The hike in Imlil was fantastic, great views and a very attentive guide, Ibrahim, who always made sure everyone was fine and gave us enough time to catch our breaks. Lunch in a local restaurant was accompanied by an amazing view of the Atlas mountain and the dromedary ride in traditional Berber clothes did not disappoint! Absolutely would recommend! 10/10 price-performance ratio
