“A most memorable Christmas Day!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2011

Only had 3/4 of a day in Essaouira so decided on the 2 hour excursion rather than the 3 hours- was not at all a problem to switch. Rachid collected us at our riad and brought us to the shop where we were fitted with coats, gloves, helmets, taken on a practice ride around the block, and then set out to the beach and dunes south of town. Just my 20 year old daughter and I and the guide, Khalid, who went out of his way to assure we were enjoying ourselves. He even took the time to stop and explain different sights along the way and we were surprised he packed water and candy bars for a snack (MUCH APPRECIATED!). Got CD with rides pics and knapsack to carry it in at end of trip- no extra charge! Rachid asked how how we could improve on the experience- we told him he really couldn't.

This was a very professionally run operation and it showed. They were also concerned with your safety. Compared to excursions taken in Marrakesh, I thought the price was quite reasonable and good value. Thanks for the Christmas memories, guys!!

“Great trip -- one of the highlights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

We did the half-day tour along the beach and over the dunes and were greatly impressed. This is a professionally run operation that exceeds all expectations for customer service, safety and entertainment. And it gave us a chance to see a part of the beach we would not have gotten to on our own. They picked us up at our hotel, outfitted us and gave us a quick lesson. None of us were experienced riders but our guide Driss soon got us comfortable with the equipment and our ability to handle the machines. We thought the trip was an excellent combination of terrain that gradually worked us up to the more challenging dunes. The breaks were well timed and we were treated to some spectacular view. We greatly appreciated the photo CD at the end of the trip. A little pricy but well worth the cost.

“Wow, a great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2011

This quad biking experience was recommended to us by one of the staff at the riad we were staying at, they were not wrong, it was an experience of a lifetime.

The bikes were all new and the staff were very safety consious, we were made to do a test before we were let out on the bikes.

We did the 3 hours quad biking, we left Essouria and rode the bikes along the shores right next to the Atlantic Ocean, we could not believe some of the views we saw.

If you are in Essaouira then give Palmaquad a visit, you will not regret it.

“Great fun and professional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

After looking around at other quad hire in Essaouira I ended up booking with palma quad. I was not to be disapointed from the moment you walk in to and meet Rachid you see can this is his passion and is professional all the way through. I decided to take the 3hr trip and and after safety briefing I was on the way with my guide Joe. As soon as we were on the beach the restricter was opened up and we were off alond deserted beaches with just a few animals along the way, also enjoying some time off the beach on some dusty off road tracks.They also provided drinks and a snack for the mid morning stop ( not taking you to and overpriced shop in the middle of nowhere) The whole 3 hours went by so fast, wished I'd booked the whole day as was having a great time, will definately go back and see Rachid and his team again when I can make it back to Essaouira. The guide also takes pictures of you along the way and they then give them to you on a dvd, at no extra cost. They even ran the trip with just myself, which was nice not having to wait to see if other people come along or not.
