OMG. This trip was the highlight of the trip for our family. If you are a physically active family craving an adrenalin rush while getting a locals perspective of Marrakech then here it is. My family loved dodging cars, motor bikes, people and horses around town. The guide also has lots of biking experience and can organize tailored outings to fit your needs...say mountain biking in the Atlas or outside of Marrakech.
good bike ride but be warned - this is NOT a food tour. We were expecting to stop off at various points to sample the different local cuisines but such wasn't the case we had a meal and some orange juice and that was about it. the cycling through the bustling streets of marrakech was daunting but fun though.
You want some adventure in Marrakech? Then we advise you to do a biketour with Farouk Argansports. Marrakech will never be the same for you! You will discover how the Black King died in his pool. Or why each house in the red city has two entrances to escape?
We loved his humour and his knowledge about the Marrocan people.
Don't be afraid, the biketour is safe.
And you will enjoy the lunch as we did. Fish and chicken and tajine... It was to much!
After the tour he drove us back to the center with his car. What a nice day!
Try not to do this during Ramadan. That's a sun up to sundown fast. Limits food choices. I give it 3 and a half stars. Better than walking tour. Could have done more historical sites, fewer merchants. But then all the tour guides take you into the spice shops and rug dealers, et al. Best was the grilled sardines. Deboned by hand. A kick sandwiching through the Medina.
Great way to see and experience the city up close and personal: Mohammad L was a great host and really took his time to navigate us through the streets and traffic and explain all the sights and history. Highly recommended and be sure to bring some shorts...I booked the trip as a surprise for my husband and he was wearing fitted pants...Mohammad went as far as providing shorts and sun screen to ensure the most comfortable ride Best way to see the city and do Marrakech.
