The Desert Ride by Vintage Sidecar
If you can’t make it all the way to the Sahara desert, the Agafay Desert makes a scenic alternative—a stone desert located just an hour from Marrakech. On this tour, ride out to the desert in a vintage sidecar, explore the rocky plains and visit traditional Berber villages with the help of a local guide, then enjoy a delicious Moroccan lunch with views of the Atlas Mountains.
What to Expect

Go discover the Agafay Desert and unexpected gems comfortably seated in a vintage sidecar and get ready to live an amazing three-wheeled experience !

You will meet your Insider at La Grand Café de la Poste (or at your hotel if you choose the custom pick-up option). Then, you will venture out into the lunar landscapes of the Agafay desert ! Make a first stop in a 16th century koranic school closed to public and still inhabited by the descendants of the founder and let the magic of the place take you by surprise !

Keep going through the desert remote tracks and discover its ruins, traditional berber villages and luxuriant oases. Top it off with a unique moroccan lunch in a desert camp overlooking the Atlas mountains before getting back to town.

Marrakech surroundings are full of surprises and these are just few of the many hidden treasures you will see on this unusual open-air ride.

Amazing Experience

We absolutely loved it - Felix and Renaud were the best hosts we could have ever imagined. They took us to unique places in the vintage sidecar and were very knowledgeable of the area! We're desperate to come back; definitively 100% recommended it!

Once in a Lifetime!

I had no idea how incredible it could be to see a country by motorbike. We'd spent a few days in Marrakech and saw the major sights, but I discovered we hadn't seen anything until we hopped on the sidecars and got out of town....More
