MAD MAD1,950.00
  • Duration: 90 Minutes (approx.)


Full of vivid colors and enchanting scents, take a glimpse at the Medina's local life comfortably seated in our vintage sidecars. You can also choose to take a break from this frenziness while riding in the mythical palm grove with its thousands of palm trees and beautiful viewpoints on the Jbilets mountains. The old French neighborhood of Gueliz is also of great interest with its art deco buildings and remainings of the 1930's local life.


Your Insider will meet you near "Bakery Café Taxi", boulevard Prince Moulay Abdallah. Share your expectations and specific requests while your insider introduces you, thanks to an old map, to both the geography of the city and your tailor-made itinerary. Adjust your helmet, put on your sunglasses and hop on. 

On this one hour and a half open-air adventure, you can either choose to immerse yourself in the quaint Marrakech of the 1920s, discover the most authentic neighborhoods of the Medina, or enjoy a shot of greenery in the mythical palm grove.

With its ancient Art Deco buildings, its former open-air cinema, the very first hotel built in 1918, its dusty clock shop, and its former Mines Counter, the 1920s Gueliz district testifies of the daily life during the former French Protectorate. A Ride in History.

Another page of History opens up in front of your eyes if you decide to discover the stunning Medina of Marrakech. Ride through the most remote and authentic neighborhoods to witness the local life in the Kasbah district, a former fortress reserved for the employees of the Royal Palace, the Mellah, the former Jewish neighborhood or the flea market in Bad El Khemiss taking place every Thursday and Sunday. 

Further away, you can choose to discover the palm grove, once a very fertile oasis, this piece of land only known nowadays for its luxurious villas, gave birth to the entire Tensift region almost a thousand years ago thanks to its ingenious underground irrigation systems.

After this last stop, your insider will take you back to your hotel or any other place in downtown Marrakech.
