Nice 2 hour trip on quads, but a lot of the time is spent driving around on small paths leading to the oceans and the great dunes.

Hello and thank you for your review!
We start out directly by the woods and trails camels, they are very varied: villages, forests, dunes, beaches etc..
It is important to know that the tides change, at certain times, channels, and the beach is sometimes impractical.
Your opinion is interesting because sometimes we change, at the request of our customers the way to roll over in the sand on the beach whenever possible.
You were accompanied by a guide who speaks English very well and you did no remarks: before and especially after hiking? and return your smile gave no sign of displeasure??
We are here for you to enjoy an unforgettable experience, our team of experienced professional.
Please ask about our tours and express your wishes before departure and / or reservation!
See you on the sand of Essaouira.
Philippe

First, when I saw so many "excellent" reviews I thought these guys don't really need another one, but then I realised that the majority of them in French, so I decided to write an English one:).
So we really enjoyed our quad bike tour through dunes and beaches near Essaouira. The guide Mustafa is very comfortable person to be around and speaks good english, which was so handy for us as our French is really basic. The sights we passed by on the quads were breathtaking. I loved the dunes, I've never seen anything in my life like this, the sand is golden! Use this opportunity if you didn't have enough time in Morocco to visit the desert.
When you pay for the tour, the taxi to and from the quad hiring place is included.
It was undoubtedly the highlight of our one week stay in Morocco.

We took the 2 hour quad bike excursion on the beach and forest, which was great. We had a private guide who tailored our route to what we wanted to do and was concerned with us enjoying the trip and being safe. Guide spoke excellent English, as well. Highly recommended!

A great trip. Our guide, El Moustapha was brilliant. Spoke good English and had a good sense of humour. The trip was varied with forest tracks, huge sand dunes, hard sand burn ups and scrub. Great variety. I have no hesitation in recommending. Simon Jones, Cardiff, Wales, UK.

The owners picked us up from our hotel.
They were very kind. My wife did not feel well and at the last minute decided not to do it (and was not charged for it). I went on my own with another couple. The other couple was kind of slow, so we splited with my own guide and were able to go at my pace.
Excellent ! At some point the quad got stuck in a sandy dune, and the guide was very kind and took the time to get me out.

Overall a wonderful experience, can't recommend them enough!
