  • Essaouira: 2-Hour Kite-Surfing Lesson

    2. Essaouira: 2-Hour Kite-Surfing Lesson

    Your kite-surfing adventure starts at the local tour operator’s water sports store. This is where you will meet your guide for the day before being kitted out with all the necessary equipment you’ll need for your experience. You will then head onto the beach where the real fun begins. If you’re a beginner, your guide will begin by explaining to you the safety aspects, and helping you understand the wind. They will also teach you directly on the beach how to fly your kite. The next step is to go into the water to control your kite while your body drags through the water. Once you control this you will move to the next step, which will be getting on to the board to experience your first meters of kiting. It will then be time to work on your posture and stance to extend your ride on the board even more. If you’ve already got some kite surfing experience, the lesson will be tailored to you...

    Got picked up before time stated by the guide but this was not withing get your guide range. The driver was not the most pleasant, he interrupted twice when I was talking to my partner and i'd rather have him not listen in on my conversation. He had a very creepy aura about him and this made me stay quiet with my partner until I got to our destination. But that was the end of any downsides. From then onwards the guides were great and the experience as great. Met some great people and we had a brilliant time. I wished there was an option for 2 people sharing 1 quad as that is what I ended up doing but paid for two quads. Thanks to all the tour guides for their hospitality and to the man taking us there safely (although it was not the best experience).

    Fantastic experience! Perfect one day trip outside of Marrakech, getting to see an Argan Oil Cooperative (Not mentioned in the description—so glad we got to do it!), the Atlas Mountains, a waterfall, the desert…the camel ride was a little bit of a letdown (they took you in a circle around the ranch area, with all the camels tied together, and a guide leading it, but the guide didn’t talk at all or give interesting data about the camels; we just walked, very slowly, in silence in a big circle) but still cool to see the camels and ride. Abdul was a fantastic driver/guide for the day. Fun, funny, knowledgeable, and kind. Ibrahim was also a good guide for the hiking portion. The vehicle was also nice and comfortable. Bottled water was said to be included, but was only received at lunch; it would have been nice to have in the car and/or for the hike. We would totally choose this tour again!!

  • Marrakech: Half-Day Desert Quad & Dromedary Tour

    The quad ride was fantastic, the guide looked after everyone and made it easy for everyone to have fun. The stop in the berber village included a tasty mint tea and a nice pastry as a snack. Just regarding the camel, they couldve treated the animals a little better, as one was in visable pain when we got on & off. During the ride it was fine just at these moments it made us feel a little uncomfortable. With a little more loving treatment it wouldve been 5 stars easy!! Thanks for the tour guys!
