Fabulous trip - a lot of fun and I would recommend it to anyone. A word of warning though - wear old clothes, preferrably ones that aren't white. The bikes kick up a lot of sand and dust and it stains clothing.

Ismail was so welcoming and would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Marrakech. The visit to the lovely berber lady was enjoyable, she provided us with refreshments there too. 10/10

It was an enjoyable experience! We had a very intimate group, which I preferred. The guides were great and the transport was comfortable and timely!

Very nice experience! Be careful what clothes you wear, because they are full of dust, but they are definitely worth it;)

Our guide hicham was very attentive, funny which made our outing very pleasant. I highly recommend.
