What People Are Saying About Marrakech
The tour was very good except for when we got to the Camel trekking. The people could not communicate well in English or French. The organization was not clear.
Itinerary: 3 days; Marrakech - Ait Ben Haddou kasbah - Todra Gorge - Erg Chebbi camel trek (sunset and sunrise) - Marrakech. Great places and amazing views. Tour well organized with reliable driver, food good enough. Climate really cold, especially in the desert so another warmer period during the year would be preferred.
We had a blast riding the camel for about an hour around the palmerai, which is not as cool as the desert because it's basically a palm grove surrounded by walls. But we got to put on some traditional dress and our guide who walked the camel the whole way stopped periodically to take pictures. Then we were driven for about 25 mins to another village and we rode quads around the desert for 1.5 hours stopping for tea at a cool house in a small Berber village, and for a picture. That was a blast although for experienced riders, you'll be told to keep it chill and stay single file behind the guide. But he went pretty quick so I still had a blast
If your in Marrakech and your looking for a good trip I would highly recommend this one. From point of booking the whole experience was brilliant. Best quad bike trip we've ever done
We had an amazing trip and it was very well organized. We got picked on time and had no problems during the whole trip. Especially our driver Mohammed was great, very funny and helpful. And we always felt safe during our drive. The people at the hotel and in the desert were really nice, too. We had an amazing evening with traditional Music and very good food. We would do the trip again.
