Overall rating

4.7 / 5

During our holiday in Agadir we booked this experience to escape a bit from the "surf-ride-quad" frenzy we slipped in. This has been the best spent day of our time in Morocco! This is not a single experience, it is more of a portfolio of five different experiences packed into one. We had the safari, the desert/sand ride at full speed, the fishermen houses, an impressive dam with a great view and an outstanding lunch in a traditional house. Or guide Mohamed has been the most caring, polite and competent companion we could imagine. He drove extremely safely, especially at robust speeds in the sand, explained everything he knew and made every moment of the day as comfortable as possible. He used to be a concierge in one of the most luxurious hotels in the region and that style is full there. Kudos also for the way he managed an idiotic camel driver who aggressively asked an outrageous sum of money to ride his camels (outside of this activity, so nothing in their responsibility)

Great experience! I would definitely recommend. Ismail made me feel comfortable through the whole trip and made sure I understood everything even though I was the only English tourist. He was very knowledgeable and everyone we met along the way was extremely lovely. We had a delicious Tajine for lunch. Just great great experience all together

Our guide Aziz was fantastic, he was very informative about every part of our trip, didn’t rush us, we had a great day and would recommend whilst in Morocco

Perfect excursion between sea and Sahara Mohamed excellent guide of extreme kindness. Succulent meal: the best of the stay I highly recommend

The guide was very friendly and the trip was well organized.
