What people are saying about Marrakech-Safi, Morocco

A great experience, the stallions were incredibly well trained and very well cared for, they seemed healthy and happy. The environment was great and there were actually only two of us with the riding companion. Even as a beginner, you were allowed to ride very independently - I, as someone with at least rudimentary previous experience, thought it was great. However, my friend would have liked more guidance on his first ride and felt a bit lost in the meantime. I will gladly come again!

Real equestrian center, well equipped. The horses look very good, the staff was kind to the animals. The person who took care of us made us do a few career laps before leaving for the ride and made us do a few more gallop laps on the way back for the riders who wanted it because the riders on the ride had different levels (not and a little too much during the ride). Very good to recommend

We had an incredible experience horse riding through the sand dunes, palace ruins and on the beach. We were collected from central Essaouira and driven to the ranch, where we were briefed and assigned horses based on experience. As beginners, our guide was very knowledgeable and helped with our horse riding technique. Overall, the experience was great fun and I would highly recommend.

a real great experience with professionals who listen and with the desire to please adults and children alike. I highly recommend

Varied tour with a very nice guide and lots of input.
