Very nice excursion !! The kids loved it and we adults also had a nice trip. Nice staff and you could take photos and pet the camels as much as you wanted. The camels were kind and seemed satisfied. We in our family had to ride ourselves because there were no others there when we arrived.

Great fun at a reasonable price!

Me and my girlfriend decided to spend a day in Maspalomas during our holiday in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria. We were offered various camel rides via our hotel however this was by far the cheapest and half an hour was plenty enough time especially with the heat - any longer would likely have been too much. I would recommend this to anyone on holiday in Gran Canaria as this was a lovely trip to top off a great day in Maspalomas.

A good camel ride experience,

A bit scary when they stand up and down, but well worth the memory!. Get there early, wear secure shoes and don’t forget to suncream up before the very hot ride across the sand dunes!. They take pictures that you can buy for €5 each, well worth it so you don’t drop your camera as it is high up and bumpy!. A great experience and well worth it, book before online as it is more expensive on the day. Enjoy...
