“Worth booking for sure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Had a walk along the beach from the medina and called in to book the three hour trip for the following afternoon.

On arrival the next day, got good equipment, decent bikes and a short and sweet safety briefing followed by a quick lap of the block to get used to the controls. Next, it was off down the road and on towards the dunes. Once everyone was ok with using the bike, the speed limiter was removed and away we went!

Good route with lots to see...sometimes not the most scenic with all the plastic rubbish blowing about in a few places but this isn't for long. Breaks including water and chocolate are included as well as a DVD of pictures at the end.

Don't bother with a bigger quad bike...it's not worth the extra cash as everyone goes at the same pace anyway. 125cc is fine for the route!

“Fun, exciting and really well thought out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

We booked on the recommendation of our guide at the Riad we're staying in. It was a brilliant morning out. We were carefull kitted out with all the gear which is freshly laundered. We then set off with our guide who gradually took us through the skills we needed. When you start out the power is limited, so you really get used to the bike. Then when you get on the beach the delimiter is removed and you gradually do more exciting manoeuvres and head into the dunes. He takes you up and down progressively steeper dunes, never moving onto the next until you feel confident. After about two hours we arrived at a cove and had a break. We then roared back through the dunes and along the beach. You feel completey in control and it's brilliantly exciting. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

All the while your guide is taking photos which are then burnt to a CD when you get back to the office. I'd go agin tomorrow!

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Really friendly guys and very well organised, even gave out water a little chocolate bars for snacks half way through. Had great fun and saw quite a bit of the coastline we would not have seen otherwise. Part of the deal is a full DVD of photos of your trip so good value too. Fully recommend it.

“Exciting,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Absolutely the most exciting thing we have done in Essaouira! We contacted Palmqaud and booked the trip before arriving in Essaouira and they were very kind and available to give us the best trip possible, also personalizing it according to our desire. This is so true that, after the quad trip, they arrange for us only also an hour camel ride on the beach, at sunset.. sooo beautiful and funny! We appreciated very much the pictures they took during the trip, and all the equipment (new, clean, complete, useful). Highly recommended!!
