We booked a camel ride at Maroc Loisirs through our holiday rep at our hotel, we arrived and were dressed to ride camels in a long kaftan and a head dress. We were taken on a ride around the area on a camel before stopping half way for tea and pancakes. Our guide was very nice but because of our limited french it was a little hard to have much of a conversation with him. The camels were in great condition, well behaved and very nice to ride, i was comfortable and quite happy to be there. Would have liked to have done the quad biking too if i had more time!

We went on a 1 1/2 hour camel ride - the staff were lovely - helpful and friendly. Our guide was good - he didn't speak english and we spoke little french so there was minimal communication but he made sure we were ok and took lots of pictures for us - they dressed us in traditional clothing for our ride. It included a stop for mint tea and pancakes half way. The only downside was that part of the trek was through quite a bit of waste land which wasn't as nice.

When we got back we had a drink in the gorgeous gardens at Maroc - definitely recommend it

This is a good opportunity to ride a camel and is close to Marrakech (20 minutes) from the Medina area. There are six riders per group, a guide and a baby camel named Michel. You stop for mint tea and a snack midway. The guide kept the camels on track and took photos of us. We went by houses, through an olive grove and down a local road. Go early in the morning before it gets too hot.

I enjoyed the camel ride although I was a little disappointed we only rode in circles around the neighbouring olive fields. I was maybe expecting something a little more exotic, but if you have children, this activity is perfect. I felt the 1.5-hour ride was unecessarily shortened by a long tea break as a shabby hosue nearby. Friendly staff, fun saharan costumes for all to wear, and great riad to hang out at.

We were sold the camel ride on the understanding that we were riding a camel in the palmgroves. We arrived in a barron mud field with not a palmgrove in sight. Although friendly, the tour guides did not say one single word about the camels, the area, the country, in fact they said nothing! Perhaps they could have told us where the palmgroves had mysteriously disappeared to?! We then arrived back at Maroc loisirs activity centre and had to wait for nearly one hour for our transport back to the hotel. Considering we only had two days in marrakech this was very frustrating. Customer service was lacking at this point too. We were offered drinks while we were waiting - the catch being you had to pay for them yourselves! There was no real explanation as to why we were waiting by the lady in charge. Very poor show indeed. I would definitely NOT recommend this tour.

Hello,

We feel very sorry reading your comment, please be aware that even in the Palmeraie there are no palm grooves left, nevertheless we are located just at the Atlas's feet you had a super view while waiting. If you come in summer you will enjoy our swimming pool;

Hope to see you soon
