Absolutely fantastic experience! I have nothing but good things to say about Dunes Desert. My three friends and I (all girls) did the full day program, including a camel ride in the morning, lunch, and then quad bikes in the afternoon. The guides were phenomenal and made the trip so enjoyable. The day was very relaxed and I never felt rushed to move on to the next activity which was a relief as some tours are on tight schedules. I would highly recommend using Dunes Desert to anyone. It was my favorite day I've had in awhile! Hopefully I'll be back for another excursion with them soon.”

This an amazing deal. They pick you up at/near your hotel, drive 30-45 outside of the city, 2 hours on the Camel, then lunch, and 2 hours on the quad. If you really want a great experience take this tour. The quad ride alone was worth it. A highlight among many in Morocco.”

The tour guides were very friendly and enjoyable! Definitely worth the money. The camel ride was great, but the four-wheelers were the best - the views were incredible!”

We did the full day Camel and Quad experience. It was exactly what we expected. They picked us up on time at our hotel and took us out to the camels. We enjoyed tea out at a village, which was great to see and experience by a local family. In the afternoon you ride the quads out to the mountains. Momo was our guide on this ride and was very helpful, especially since I was a little nervous riding a quad for the first time. You go back to the same village for lunch for a traditional tagine lunch and it was fabulous. The host is very gracious and the food was authentic and delicious. Much better than I anticipated. I think I liked this part the best of all. The guides take pictures that you can download later. It was a great day. I highly recommend this tour group.”

You will have so much fun! The camel and ATV rides are both a blast, and the day is broken up by relaxing (and delicious) meals. My husband and I loved the pacing of it.What made the experience especially great though were the guides, photographers, and cooks. They were so welcoming and fun to be around. We immediately wanted to be best friends with Yassin, who gave us an Amazir history lesson, cracked lots of jokes, and taught me a little French. The photographer Zac made us laugh a lot, and K _____ was a great ATV guide. He had fun with us while also keeping us safe and making sure we knew how to handle the ATVs. They speak great English, too!Another thing I loved is that they were very accommodating of my vegetarian diet and nut allergies. They asked about it beforehand via email, and made me a separate taggine from the rest of the group made of carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, squash and olives.This was one of the highlights of our vacation! It’s authentic, approachable, and so fun.”

What a day! The guides and the photographers were all super amazing. The Moroccan pancakes and tea in the morning were delicious and the lunch was also tasty. On the quad bikes, the guide was great about making sure we felt comfortable.
We wanted a digital set of pictures but didn't carry enough cash. The photographer was nice enough to come to our hotel later to coordinate us getting the digital file.”

Zakariae was a great Quad leader! He was patient to teach me how to ride the quad and I had a blast!
First tour was a guided camel ride in the Rock

Great tour, Camel ride was a little bit slow but the stop for lunch and tea were great and the Quad Bike was simply awesome!”

The quad-biking was great fun, I know that some smart arses know it all, but listening to the instructors advice, they know the desert and terrain, made for a really enjoyable ride through some varied landscapes. Both stops in the Berber villages were fascinating and the locals went out of their way to be hospitable, even showing us their homes.
Special thanks to Mo-Mo for his unbridled enthusiasm and smile on the bikes, Hissan for the richly entertaining camel ride, and the local Berber gentleman and his children who provided lunch - what a marvellous sense of fun and humour they had!
All of which led to a highly memorable day.”

Great package! With hotel pick up and drop off, this is a very convenient company to use. They called our hotel the day before to confirm the pick up time too. The guides are very welcoming, providing tea and water on arrival and explaining the itinerary. The location is great as it's amongst some local villages and settlements and near mountains, so there's lots to see while camel riding and quad biking around. The drinks break during the camel riding and lunch during the quad biking was in a lovely location next to a small settlement, where the family served us home cooked food. Really tasty and filling! The guides took photos using our camera for us while camel riding so there's no surprise high price photo purchases at the end. The quad biking takes you round the whole area and was so much fun! Great activities, guides, food and service and an all round excellent experience!”

Can honestly say this was my favourite day from our trip as it was so much fun! Casaoui was an amazing guide on the quadbikes and always made sure we were ok! The tour was only with my friend and I which gave it a more personal touch. The camel trekking was also fun and Mohammed was so lovely!”

This was a fantastic outing and definitely one to recommend. The camel ride and quad biking tours were timed just right. Lunch was lovely and we were made very welcome each time we visited the locals. The tour guides were also fantastic and tried hard to please everybody on the trips. Do not miss out on this outing if you want to have some fun while being in Marrakech!”

This was a fabulous tour. We were a group of 12. There were plenty of camels and quads for the entire group. I did have to contact Viator to book the reservation because of our group size. Pick up and transport, to and from, was very clear and on time.They provide you with all of the safety gear. They even provide you with the head scarf for the tour. We spent 2 hours riding camels, followed by an amazing tagine lunch cooked by a local Berber family. We brought small gifts for the children that we encountered. We then were geared up for the 2 hour quad tour. The guides are accommodating, professional and always have your safety in mind. Great Tour!
Things you may want to consider :1 Sunscreen: All parts exposed will get burned without it to include ankles, wrists, and backs of neck. 2.Long socks to prevent ankles from sunburn 3.closed toe shoes. 4.I would suggest lightweight long pants and light long sleeved shirts. Your clothes get filthy from the dust. My white shirt was literally brown.5.Make certain to use the scarf they give you to cover up your nose and mouth on the camel ride. For the quads, they do provide you with goggles, helmets, and a sheathe that slides over your head before placing on the helmet. 6.I had a cross body purse on and it worked great since it kept my hands free.7. Make certain anything of value,like cameras and cell phones ,are secured from falling to the ground since you are high up on the camels and it can be a bit bumpy. 8. Enjoy the tour. We did!”

You could not ask for nicer tour guides. They were kind and patient. Was my first time on a camel, probably my last unless there is an electrical apocalypse and I am trapped in the dessert. But well worth it for the experience. Our host for tea and lunch was so kind, courteous and entertaining. I felt at home the entire time. Thank you so much for a great experience.”

Amazing excursion! The camel ride was awesome! I had Jackie Chan and my wife had Shakira. Her daughter kept following us around during the 2.5 hour camel ride. It was super cute that she hung onto her mother for the entire morning. The lunch provided was amazing! The ATV ride was a full 2 hours and it was pretty awesome. I would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone!”

The is an excellent tour. The site is only half an hour or so outside of Marrakech, and the tour guides speak excellent English and French. The camel ride was a great experience, and afterwards we had mint tea and an excellent tagine lunch with a local Berber family, who taught us a bit about their culture and lifestyle. After that we drove into the hills on the quadbikes - we were able to get up to a good speed and stop on top of one of the hills for photos. Throughout the tour guides were friendly and energetic, and our Berber hosts were welcoming, informative, and extremely helpful. Highly recommended!”

Very good tour, great organisation! Special thanks to Amine Casaoui! He assisted with riding a quad bike. He was very nice and helpful, made my excellence really unforgettable!”

We were the only 2 who went on a whole day trip of camel riding and quad bike. The camel ride was - you guessed it - bumpy and tbh quite boring if it was not for our guides who were laughing and singing and joking, making it very fun. The camels are very cute and clean and looks well cared for. There is one crazy camel called Jackie Chan which I had kept drooling, it was hilarious. Now the quad-bike ride is the real deal, there were only my wife and I in the tour. we rode all the way to the mountains and our guide Amine Casaoui was super nice and professional. It was my wife's first time on a bike and he kept checking on her to make sure she was alright. The scenery is stunning, and riding the quads was fun. We stopped to chat about the Berber village, the people, the culture. Thanks Amine, I hope you find your Marrakech dream girl soon! LOL”

Picked up around the corner from the Riad, where we were staying, at a punctual time. Comfortable air conditioned mini-van to the location. The drive was quite short less than an hour, possible half an hour.
We were greeted with mind tea and water where we met the group. We had some paper work to fill in but nothing unusual, just safety information, passport number etc.
We then started the day with the camel ride, a great experience! The ride was quite long, but in comparison to other camel rides we have been on these were quite well cushioned. The guides were singing and cracking jokes throughout.
We then met a Berber man who showed us the art of making mint tea, which we then drank and had come crepes. We returned to base on the camels to retrieve our quad bikes. This was probably the highlight of our entire trip.
We were split into groups of 4's our group was inexperience - first timers on quad bikes so we got about 10 minutes practice in before hand. We then drove back to the Berber house where we had a spread of bread,Tagine and fruit - absolutely delicious!
We then proceeded to drive around on the quad bikes, following our guide, for a good hour or two. Picking up speed and taking on bigger hills etc as we gained confidence. En route, we stopped at a Berber house where we got a small tour to see how they lived and met the family. This was a great bonus to our trip!
All in all, I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone looking for some fun and adventure on their travels. It was also nice to get out of the busy Medina for a while and take a breath. My praise once more to the guides for being so energetic and entertaining.”
