Fabulous - the sunset was awesome! Getting off a camel is interesting! Guides are great - get them to stop - some of my pics were a bit blurry due to camel movement. Our legs ached for days especially my inner thighs!
Doing what: Sunset Camel Ride in the Palm Grove of Marrakech
The hotair balloon trip was short and uninteresting, the 'traditional' Berber breakfast was obviously bought in a shop,it was served by a local lady though, and the camel ride was pathetic...a wander around a car park for a few minutes. Definitely not value for money or as described on website.
The tour was a great introduction to Marrakech discovery, as it says on the tin. Since I had never been to Morocco before I booked it for the first day of my stay and it was worth it. It was a very good value for the whole day of wallking through the city and the streets that I wouldn't have felt comfortable with otherwise on my own. We visited a few museums and had a relaxing lunch break. The guide, Ali, is a very nice man, with good manners and was very attentive to the group, seeing that each and everyone of us reached its hotel all right. Highly recommended!

For someone who had never ridden a camel, or any other animal, this tour was just enough for the excitement and exotics of it. It was well organised and a good value tour. We were offered to leave our valuables in a caged safe since the camel ride requires pretty much absence of heavy or bulky items on you. We had cameras or mobiles and the lovely guys helping us on the tour were more than eager to take pictures of us. We got a few gifts too, such as a woven bracelet or ring made by the guides. Eshan was a very attentive guide and was setting the mood for the ride. It was one of the best experiences in Marrakech for me. I'm glad I saw the life beyond the city centre and the beautiful nature. Highly recommended!
The tour gives quite a good insight into the Moroccan culture. It was only two of us on it which surprised me initially, but we received personalised service. Our guide was a lovely man Salem who demonstrated his wonderful drumming technique. The tour was based on eat as you go basis, whereby we were stopping at market stalls for some info on the product and then trying the food either sold or cooked at that same stall. It was really interesting since you didn't know what would be the next thing to try. I would say this tour is perfect for someone who wants to know more about food and varieties of food in Marrakech.
A thoroughly entertaining experience from from start to finish with break taking views of the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains. There was very little hanging around as the team were very efficient and had the balloon set up and ready to go very quickly. For memorable views and an entertaining crew and pilot then this is the trip for you! Chris and Jess

Equipment is in good shape, modern. Guide was good as well. They give you all the gear you would need for any kind of weather...including pants and jackets. They were on time to pick us up at the hotel. All in all, great fun.

Great food and experience el fna at night full of life
This was a great trip. We were picked up spot on time by a really friendly guide. when we got to the palm grove we were dressed up in traditional dress and the two young lads guiding the camels were great. My wife received a little camel made from a palm. The tea stop was in an actual Berber house and wasnt staged like so many of these types of tours. On the way back we had the most amazing sunset on one side and lightening show on the other side. All in all and excellent trip

This was a great introduction to the culture and a good time with camels. Not too long - just right.
We really enjoyed this trip, my wife had a long ambition to ride a camel and the trek was much better than a quick sprint. The young guide was great and took loads of pictures of us. The camels seemed to be well looked after and had lovely personalities. The views were a bit limited and no sand dune to be seen but we did pass through oasis and palm groves and just settling into the rhythm of the ride was relaxing. The stop at the berber village was a bit contrived as it was just a tent with a couple of locals. Still the mint tea and pancakes were delicious and served with style. On the way back we managed a trot and our guide made us palm leaf camels as souvenirs. Over all well worth the money and an experience to tell our friends about.
I definitely recommend this tour, simply because you get to ride a camel and interact with the super-fun crew. Keep in mind that this is not a 4-hour camel ride, its more like 2.5 hours, but that's plenty and you'll be glad it wasn't 4 hours. The tea is great and provides a great break in the middle and the scenery is world class. Bring water and allergy meds if you're sensitive to new animals, and definitely bring a camera. My wife and I had a great time and it's a great way to get away from the Medina.
The tour was nice but the camels were too close together so it didn't allow for much separation and feel of riding a camel, felt more like a ride. Wish they would have given us photo opportunities with an individual camel vs the chain. Other thing is that they wanted to put our 11 year old with one of us, stating that they only charged half price for him but that was never stated in the quote, we insisted that he have his own camel and offered to pay the difference but I think they should state that if that is what they wanted to do. Ultimately they didn't charge us but would have been nice to know in advance and now have to deal with that at the time of the trip.
Also, we were not taught to make the mint tea which we were really looking forward to.
