    Head to the Palmeraie, a dazzling palm grove on the fringes of the city, for your camel ride.

    Both me and my partner was sceptical about booking this trip due to there being no reviews. Yet it’s been our best trip yet! Private transfer that was on time, drivers were very friendly and made us feel comfortable. We was taken on our camel ride by a man called Ahmed who welcomed us to Morocco and held a friendly conversation throughout the journey. Traditional clothing was offered by the team, followed by tea in the desert. It’s a trip not to miss :)
