We decided to book the two hour private tour of the dunes and we loved every minute. Mustafa spoke great english and was very knowledgeable of the area. We loved going up and down the dunes! The quads go pretty fast but you can drive them slower if you want - we liked the speed though. We went at dusk which I would recommend, the sun setting added to the amazing views. Thanks for one of the best evenings we had while in Morrocco! Sarah and James

I will speak for my husband who enjoyed the ride so much that he was under impression for the rest of the day. The ride along the beach, through the argan tree gardens, over the sand hills was challenging, which made the ride unusual and unpredictable.
I'm not fond of driving that's why I can't say much about my impressions. But it was fun anyway.

We went for a 2 hour session with the kids (9 and 7). Our 9 year old said it was the best thing he had done in his life! We hired 2 quads and it was incredible. Drove through the village, argan forest and then went for miles on the dunes which were quite amazing. It wasnt cheap but SO worth it. Definately one for the top of the list of things to do.

We paid 400Dh each for 90mins. They can pick u up from Essaouria at the medina gates. The ride was good and varied, our favourite was speeding along the beach, going up and down the sand dunes, and seeing the odd camel, goat and cow wandering about. Mustapha the guide was friendly, safety conscious and polite, we felt safe with him, and spoke good English. Calling to book may be an issue if you don't speak French, either ask for Mustafa when u call or ask ur riad to book for you.

thank you for your opinion flyer.
Contact us and we will take care of you completely!
It is indeed important to ask when booking a guide in English if you do not speak French or Arabic.
Looking forward to seeing you in Essaouira for a hike on foot or dromedary and / or a circuit Quad or all-terrain vehicles.

My husband and I went for a two hour tour in a two seater quad bike with Mustafa as our guide. We had a brilliant time driving through an argan tree forest and speeding along the beach and sand dunes. Mustafa speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable and courteous. We would highly recommend Essa-Evasion for their great service.
