Gardens are beautiful and definitely worth the visit but this is a 1 hour activity! So it was nice combination with the camel ride to fill up the afternoon. Camel ride was a very enjoyable experience! It was in the suburbs of Marrakech but you don’t get anything less than what you would otherwise in Afgay dessert. Our driver Khalid was super professional and minivan very comfortable!

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.

Pick up and drop off was really smooth. Quad biking experience itself was slightly tame but still would definitely recommend doing, good value for money and beautiful photo spots along the way

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

Nice to do the guide is great. It's neither too short nor too long
