“Fun afternoon on rocks and dust”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from London, United Kingdom on April 10th, 2014 I really enjoyed the activity! I was picked up at my hotel at the right time and I was alone, so I was a bit worried about doing the activity on my own. When we got to the headquarters, they introduced me to other people that would be doing the activity on the day as well and we all went for a test ride and afterwards, for our tour. You don't go into the dunes and the desert, but it is pretty awesome nonetheless. The pause in a typical Moroccan desert house was really good and they served us tea and Moroccan pancakes while our guide was doing his prayers. After that we went back and I was dropped at my hotel within the estimated time. It was awesome! Very different scenery!!!
“Very professional, first rate would highly recommend”

“Awesome!!! Do it!!!”
Reviewed by Carolyn from APO, United States on February 21st, 2014 Super fun! It was a great way to explore and get the adrenaline pumping. All of the equipment is provided and the guides take great care of you!
“Wish I could go again”
Reviewed by Laura from Kitchener, Canada on February 6th, 2014 We booked the half day excursion and after a quick lesson on the manual quad bikes we were off! It had previously rained a few days and so we had an awesome mix of dry sand, rocky, and wet terrain. I would recommend this to anyone in Marrakech who needs to escape from the Souqs in town for the afternoon.
The four star rating really reflects on two points for me:
Firstly, since we had to travel single file and stay with the group, pictures could only be taken when the group stopped and so we unfortunately couldn't get any 'action' shots or video.
Secondly, I assumed the two stops would be equally spaced out, but our second stop for tea was actually only 5 minutes away from the starting/ending point. And I'm not too sure if the men serving tea were authentic Berbers or just some dudes hanging around for the day in someone's backyard.
Anyways, the trip was still worth it in my opinion and we came away wishing we had booked the full day.
“Excellent experience! Can't wait to go again. Highly recommended!”
Reviewed by Alison from Helmingham, United Kingdom on January 7th, 2014 Well organised, helpful and friendly staff and great quality equipment and bikes. Actual quad biking was excellent, over varied terrain good for all levels of experience of riding, they let you go at your own pace be that fast or slow.
“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed by Katrina from Diss, United Kingdom on January 7th, 2014 Great experience, lovely to have a change of scenery from the bustle if the Medina. Guides were excellent, split the group to let faster people head off so slower quads didn't have to try to keep up. Highly recommended!
“Really fantastic! Worth each euro spend!”
Reviewed by Karst from Appingedam, Netherlands on January 6th, 2014 Really a fantastic tour! First en few minutes test driving to see if all works ok. Then the real tour. Across the dessert and between the palm trees. Across small villages. Small children waving. Had tea in a real berber home with pancakes. The tourguide was very nice. Also answered all the questions we asked about berbers and there habits and living rules. Very nice trip. Really recommend to all
“Nice tour, a bit short and boring; guide couldn't speak English”

The company is punctual and well organized. The driver was very nice i askd him to stop at the ATM coz i wantd to draw sum £££ and he did without any hesitation. The overall xperiance ws A+
“Great half day of fun”
Reviewed by Radhika from reading, United Kingdom on December 3rd, 2013 Was a really good day. Someone picked us up from the hotel on time, we had booked a quad but realised it would be better if we upgraded to a buggy because there were two of us (just more comfortable). They take you round the little villages etc and because my husband was driving the buggy, the tour guide let me sit with him and ride the quad for a bit...same with the other couple we were with which was a nice thing for him to do.
Safety was very good.
Only thing that was missing is that we couldn't race them around...we just followed the guide and weren't allowed to go too fast. Good for those who haven't driven a quad or buggy before but we had so knew what we were doing. That said, we still had a great day.

picked up from hotel and delivered back. Had a fab time and want to go again when there has been rain so it is muddy!
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from London, United Kingdom on September 26th, 2013 Awesome afternoon quad-biking, couldn't rate this higher!
“Fun and very nice”
Reviewed by Lisselotte from Hellerup, Denmark on July 21st, 2013 It was nice to try the quads and to drive around in the "desert"
“Fun Experience & Friendly Staff”
Reviewed by Stacey from Rhode-Saint-Genese, Belgium on May 6th, 2013 We had an absolute blast on the quads. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. Riding through the desert and having tea with a local family was awesome. This is a must activity!
“Great fun, well worth it!”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from NORWOOD GREEN, United Kingdom on April 7th, 2013 We went miles and miles. It was a lovely mix of travelling, stopping with the view, having Moroccan tea and crepes. A great thing to do in the desert!
Reviewed by Jim from Zwolle, Netherlands on March 17th, 2013 Realy enjoyed this. Quads go pretty fast and the enviroment is beautiful!! Loved driving past the berber villages. Only con is that your riding with a group. Not much freedom if you want to see things longer or stop to take a drink.
“Well worth it!!”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Great Yarmouth, United Kingdom on February 26th, 2013 Safe, fun and a chance to get off the beaten track.
Would reccommend this trip and would like to do other excursions they offer next time
“A great fun, Must do experience!”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Rugby, United Kingdom on January 14th, 2013 We spent a great afternoon with our guide (Mohammed) covering a variety of terrain at a decent (but safe) pace. Spectacular views, interesting villages and people and a lot of fun too.
The traditional tea was a nice break and it was an eye opener to see how people there choose to live.
The pick up from our hotel was confirmed on the morning and arrived bang on time. The quads were 250CC automatic Yamahas in good nick and the people were friendly and knew what they were doing.
All in all a great way to spend an afternoon at a good price - it was the highlight of our trip.
Perfect if you like to be outdoors doing things. Only avoid if you're precious about getting covered in (a lot!) of sand and dust, falling off or getting tired.
“Great guides! Great material! Great trip!”
Reviewed by Manuel from Hainersdorf, Austria on October 29th, 2012 The pickup from the hotel went completely without issue. When we got to the starting point, we were greeted with tea and water. After a short introduction, we were able to get a good feel for turning the quads, and then we were underway. The ride grows in difficulty from simple to rather difficult. (Although I hadn't had any experience on quads before, it wasn't any problem with the guide.) You drive through small villages, palm groves, and gravel and dirt roads. Getting stopped once on the way by sheep or goats isn't much of a problem :)
All in all a great experience, recommended for everyone.
“the trip end to end was fantastic, a must do.”
Reviewed by Lesley from Liverpool, United Kingdom on August 16th, 2012 The trip was amazing and the booking process was so easy. We got a call the night before they picked us up from the hotel to confirm details. Staff through out were great. We spoke to other people who uesd other companies and they only stayed on the flat land and didnt go up the mountain. We covered all different ground types and the staff ensured we had a great supply of water at all times. Very health and safety aware.
Will book again when returning to Marrekech.
Only down side for us was we booked for the end of the holiday and should have booked at the beginning as we would have loved to do it again.
“Brilliant tour, about 50 km through desert like landscapes!”
Reviewed by Dickjan from Willich, Germany on June 10th, 2012 The tour is well organised, the material is great and the route exciting and challenging. It's mostly driving and not much stopping. So the stop for tea and crepes at a native's house is even more of a welcome break. At about 1pm you're back, all dirty and happy!
“great, also in the rain”
Reviewed by Bjoern from Zuerich, Switzerland on April 29th, 2012 We had a great time on this tour. It had rained the night before the tour, so it was very muddy and wet. After we were dressed appropriately for the weather and after a short briefing it started already. Due to the many puddles and the mud the driving pleasure in the beautiful area was strengthened. Great tour guide, who picked us up at our hotel and cleaned the dirty shoes of my girlfriend after the tour :)
“A fun afternoon with a great crew.”
Reviewed by Sara from Ilkley, United Kingdom on February 27th, 2012 A really fun afternoon out in the surrounding desert. The crew were excellent and really looked after us including a lot of attention to safety.
“perfect tour, great guide! 10 on a scale of 10! :)”
Reviewed by David from Winterthur, Switzerland on February 5th, 2012 It was a wonderful experience and the organisation was perfect.
“unecological but great fun”
Reviewed by Gregory from Paris, France on January 9th, 2012 We went on this excursion with our two adult children, and had a great time. I had never been on a quad before, but they explained how to use it, went through some easy exercises and then we were off. Not sure how you could see that part of Morocco without a quad (or over a much longer time with a donkey). It was nice to be in the desert (a rocky desert rather than dunes). We stopped off at the top of a hill to see the surroundings, then again at a Berber house where we sat on rugs and had tea and a pancake, talking with our Berber guides (in French). They had split us up into two groups in the middle of the trip (the slower more cautious group, and the younger more eager group), and that was fine and a good idea. The kids (25 and 21) loved the excursions and so did we (in our fifties)
“Fun thing to do whilst visiting Marrakech. Would definitely recommend.”
