Your private tour starts with pickup at your hotel or riad in Marrakech. Depart Marrakech, driving through lush valleys filled with orange groves, ancient olive trees, and working farms. Stop at Chichaoua for a coffee or snack at Cafe Afoulki. Continue past your first Argan trees. These special trees are valued for their nutritive, cosmetic, and medicinal properties. A relic species from the Tertiary Period, it is extremely well adapted to drought and other environmentally difficult conditions of southwestern Morocco and, while now endangered, under the protection of UNESCO.

Mon fils (grand ado) a participé à cette activité avec son papi . Ils se sont absolument régalés ! La société est très pro et l accompagnateur très sympa . Il a pris des photos tout au long de l activité et c est un souvenir absolument fabuleux qu ils ont désormais ensemble . J avais offert ce cadeau et je suis plus que ravie ! Bravo aux organisateurs ! C était parfait ! Parfait ! Parfait ! Je recommande a 100 pour cent ! L eau et les barres chocolatées sont un plus et aussi le prêt des vêtements coupe vent !

Very friendly driver and guides. They were considerate for our sightseeing expectations. However, the car was not suitable for 3 adult visitors. It would have been perfect for 4 people but not 5 inside. We had booked for 3 people and we were welcomed by a driver and a guide who therefore occupied the two front seats of the vehicle. Which left us with the 3 rear seats of the vehicle except that the middle seat was not a real seat. And driving 6 hours in these conditions in one day is not very comfortable.

Great tour, definitely recommended. Very clean gear and well maintained quads. My 11 year old son had loads of fun. Through fantastic landscapes, the two of us went with our very competent guide along the beach into a fascinating sand dune landscape, where everything was elicited from the quad... Thank you for the great afternoon.

Omar our driver for the day picked us up from the hotel. Available and attentive. The journey, even if long, shouldn't scare you because Omar explains a lot of things along the way and everything becomes very interesting. The city of Essaouira is really very pleasant and the guide made us appreciate it even more.

This experience was really nice, 2 hours was a good amount of time to have some fun in the dunes and the beach. The owner and driver are really friendly and will make sure you have a great time! Book this activity you will not regret it :) they also provide all the necessary gear.
