Tour description provided by Viator

Explore the rugged desert, wild palm groves and rural Berber villages outside Marrakech on this tour by 4WD quad bike. Meet your guide, master the controls of your bike and head out for a desert adventure through sprawling palm groves, dry riverbeds and ancient volcanic landscapes. Stop for a cup of Moroccan tea with a local family along the way.Numbers are limited to five on this small-group morning or afternoon tour, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your guide.
Hop in a minibus at your Marrakech hotel and travel out of the city to the surrounding desert. Arriving at the base camp, meet your expert guide and learn how to master the controls of your personal quad bike (also known as an ATV). Then set off into the wide-open wilderness!The desert landscape outside Marrakech is crisscrossed with tracks and dusty roads, and your guide knows the best routes. Ride across rocky terrain, through wild palm groves and over dry rivers, and pass through a desert of jbilets — volcanic rock landscapes formed naturally over millions of years. Your guide will monitor your group’s speed to make it as safe and enjoyable as possible. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the scenery!Along the way, discover traditional Berber villages, see houses typical of the region, and meet some locals to discover their way of life, practically unchanged for more than 200 years. Midway through your tour, stop for a cup of Moroccan tea and a snack with a local family. With your guide as translator, perhaps talk to them about their experiences as you share a moment together. Enjoy the silence and serenity of the desert surroundings before hopping back on your quad bike and continuing your rugged desert ride. Conclude your tour back at the base camp, and then relax on the drive to your Marrakech hotel.
