    1. 1-Hour Camel Ride and 2-Hour Quad Bike Ride in Marrakech

    Escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech for a half-day adventure tour just a few minutes from the city center. Following a pickup from your hotel or riad, transfer to the desert surrounds and experience the land from the back of a camel. Known as the “Ships of the Desert,” these remarkable animals offer a relaxing way to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Palmeraie in the palm groves of Marrakech. Once you’ve found your balance and got used to the rhythmic motion a camel makes, break for mint tea refreshments with a Berber family. There will be plenty of time for some fun photos, and a chance to get to know your camel better. Then, drive into the Moroccan countryside for a fun-packed Quad Bike adventure. Follow your guide into the rugged terrain, and experience the beauty of the contrasting landscapes around the palm groves from a new perspective.

    Quad biking was amazing! Wish it was longer only downside was the sad but that’s just experience. Guides were lovely. Camel ride was fun, a little long but guides were lovely and funny worth every penny

  • Marrakech: Half-Day Camel Ride in Palm Grove

    5. Marrakech: Half-Day Camel Ride in Palm Grove

    Leave the hustle and bustle of Marrakech behind and go on a half-day adventure. According to legend, this area was the site of a military camp, where, in the evenings, soldiers ate dates that had been carried from the pre-Saharan oases. The discarded pits fell into holes left by lances that had been thrust in the ground and so the palm groves of Marrakech were planted. Donning your "cheich" (protective turban veil), you and your new camel friend will trek safely through the palm groves past villas, luxury properties and Berber homes. Sit back with a refreshing glass of mint tea at the home of one of the local Berber families before heading back to the city.

    Was very nice, the camels are nice and tall. We wore traditional clothing. The guide was very friendly. Only point is that I was expecting to conduct my own camel, and they tie one camel to the other one, and one guide in front leads all of them. maybe if we could try the camels alone or with someone together on the camel back (for security) would be more interesting. Like camel run, or something.

The guides are extremely welcoming and very caring. The tea and bread with honey was just beautifully delicious. Take gloves and a coat for temperatures between 15 and 20C.

The tour was just great, I was picked up at the hotel on time. In a small group we went to the famous stone desert that was very close. Super nice people accompanied you!

Everything went very well. The tea break (after an hour of quad biking) was delicious and fun. The guides are nice and the driver too.
