This experience was amazing. The transfer was comfortable, we were two young women and felt safe the entire time. The camel handlers were friendly and it was a great experience. The quad bikes were definitely more fun as more free reign. The operators again so friendly and respectful and took some amazing photographs. It was a really brilliant experience and would recommend, such a good fun half day worth every penny. Finished off with sweet tea and bread.

Salem was the best guide! We saw so much more of Morocco than we expected to see, thanks to him. The car rides in between Marrakech and Merzouga, Merzouga and Fes are quite long, but the landscape and sites in between are gorgeous which helps make the time pass. The actual desert portion of the trip was INCREDIBLE, a definite must-do if you are coming to Morocco. I only wish we stayed one more day in the desert to offset the time in the car.

This is a must do experience when visiting Marrakesh, the guides are fantastic, you get so long on the quad bikes it definitely feels good value for money. Make sure you wear clothes you don’t mind getting dusty.

I really enjoyed the overall experience. We got to see the magnificent sunrise from up there. The driver Mr.Hamada was very professional and kept time.

Helpful and nice host Beautiful pics on the camelride part Fun quad memories
