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.

Una experiencia muy bonita y los encargados ayudan muchísimo. Se puede pasar un buen rato conociendo la ciudad.

The driver (Toufik) was really kind and friendly. We enjoyed the trip even if we were sad to come back home.

Excellent guide. We highly recommend this tour. We have done multiple tours, and this was by far the best.

I don't remember the guide's name I think is Aiken, he was great
