We were picked up at our accommodation and taken to the desert quad and camel location with 2 other guests. Quad bike experience was slowed down by the pace of some members of the group therefore we missed the sunset but the experience was still great fun and the horizon views in the desert were beautiful at this time of day. Dinner was the best part of the evening. Great atmosphere and was brought tea and nuts, a starter, tagine and fruit. Well paced throughout the night with musicians and dancers while it got dark. The place offered for us to stay the evening or a 10:30pm or 1am ride back into Marrakech. Drop off at a central location rather than back at the accommodation because the minibus you come home in can’t travel the smaller streets in Marrakech. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to experience a day trip to agafay.

Punctual pick up, quad bikes in good condition, and well looked after the entire time. No pressure to buy anything or leave tips, even when we stopped for tea and snacks (bread, honey and olives). Camels also looked cared for and in good condition. Don't expect too much of a thrill if you're an adrenaline junkie on the quads though - the terrain is flat and easy, and you only go as fast as the slowest person in your group.

We had an amazing trip with great people - both fellow travelers as well as guides. It is a touristy trip with quite some stops at souvenir stands, and the hotel wasn’t the most comfortable - yet, it was all 100% worth it. We highly recommend!! Especially the second day is just amazing, we had the opportunity to do quad, camel riding and sand boarding.

It was our pleasure to have Mohammad potato as our guide. It was a privilege to have met someone as friendly, fun, helpful, and full of life as him. We also loved getting to know his home town which is so beautiful and full of friendly people. If you are lucky enough to get Mohammad as your tour guide, I assure you that you will be covered :)

The tour was excellent, Mohammad potato was very knowledgeable and patient with the group. Would definitely recommend!!!
