This was the best activity to end our Morocco holiday with, we were picked up from our hotel to the camel riding palmeira where we were given traditional clothing to wear. The guides were really helpful and made sure everyone got onto the camels safely. The sunset view was spectacular, throughout the 2 hour camel ride the guides frequently asked if we are okay and comfortable. There were also children on camels so they kept a close eye on them. They were happy to take pictures and videos for everyone and entertained everyone with their Bollywood singing. We finished the activity with the Moroccan mint tea and we’re dropped off back to our hotel. Ibrahim and the other guides were extremely respectful and friendly, they made this activity very memorable for us.

Real equestrian center, well equipped. The horses look very good, the staff was kind to the animals. The person who took care of us made us do a few career laps before leaving for the ride and made us do a few more gallop laps on the way back for the riders who wanted it because the riders on the ride had different levels (not and a little too much during the ride). Very good to recommend

Best experience ever. our guides badr and Muhammed were amazing and fun explained everything to us, took us to the destination where we met our guide for the camel ride. very experienced and even gave us all a hand made gift made out of a leaf. will definitely book again and will absolutely use gyg again. I can't wait for the next adventure

It was the best experience we had in Marrakesh. From the pick up to drop off - everything was well organised. Our camel ride guide, Hamed was the best. He did not only give us the best ride but also took some amazing photos. I would recommend this to anyone who is coming to Marrakesh.

From pickup to drop and everything in between was organised and done excellently.
