Absolutely a "must visit". Friendly and absolutely honest staff. We apparently overpaid for one of the kids, and they came up to us and told us to come back after the trip and get the money back.Great trip with the camels, walking around in the sand dunes. Fun experience riding the big camels, especially for the kids. Trip is approx 30 minutes, which is very reasonable.Hardly any wait time, eventho there were many people. Each trip with 10 camels carries 20 people.

A great experience...HOWEVER, it is difficult to get in. The website or our local guides didn't mention this.Even if you have a ticket booked for a certain day, you need to be there between 9-10am (10am latest) to book a ride time. They only run until early afternoon, so if you turn up late (as in, after 10-10:30am), you ain't going.Even if you turn up at 10am and get a place, it could be a few hours later (we walked towards the beach and found a cafe).For our first attempt, we turned up at 11am and they were fully booked for the day. So we had to revisit.Staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a shaded tent area to wait if you wish. The ride through the dunes was about 40 minutes, and spectacular.So overall, the experience is excellent, and well worth it...it is just difficult to get a date/time.

A great experience! I'd recommend going earlier in the day as it gets extremely hot! All the camels seemed well looked after and all the guides knew each camel by. name. Would recommend to anyone!

A must try when in the island. We found it online and thought lest try it, it was a really good choice that we took. The tour was really good, the staff there was helpful and friendly. They take photos of you and you can print it out for a small fee or while on tour you can ask them to take photos from your phone and they happily do.

15 per adult, 10 Euro per child. Camels are looked after and talked to. Really nice slow trot through dunes, 30 minutes. Kids enjoyed it

Nice, polite service. Well organised ticketing system The ride is really enjoyable and peaceful. Actually maybe a bit longer than 30min. Nice dune views. Camels treated very well, you can see and sense that bond between the animals and their owners. Very much recommended.

Has a place where people can wait sat in the shade if they are not going on the ride. Enjoyed the camel ride, pleased it was only about 40 mins though as very bumpy on your back, has a steel rod with no padding on. Seat not uncomfortable and place to hang on, which I needed.

A camel ride to go once in a lifetime and see the dunes without walking in the sun. A good experience but something is missing, the walk made me long and a bit boring , I think they should do something more dynamic although the Instructors are very friendly, they take pictures of you with your mobile and if you ask them for information about the camels, they give it to you without any problem.And one of the instructors gave my daughter a stuffed animal, the treatment is better.

A lovely outing and something different to do. The camels are very calming, the keepers were friendly and made it enjoyable for all. We turned up early and had no problem getting a ride, wasn't too hot first thing either.

Would highly recommend this experience to anyone family's, solo travelers. It is a fantastic thirty minutes. We actually thought there was just Camellos roaming around when we first arrived at the main gate near the car park it was a ten minute walk for us then to figure out where it was. At €12.00 per person you can't complain at that price. We rode Andras it was a challenge just getting on, my wife was very nervous so I had our five year old on my knee, you are secured to the seat via a very thin piece of rope about stomach hight not really secure but still. The camel stood up and I thought jeez we are high. Then we had our thirty minute ride out and back around a protected nature reserve in maspolomas, it really is such a beautiful area. Then it was time to go back to base and get off and wow that was the scary part literally though we were going to fall out of the seats. We had our photo took just before setting off and went and viewed it and for €5.00 we got the souvenir. For us as a family it was probably a once in a lifetime experience and so was well worth it. The staff are so professional and friendly, the camels look well looked after. Thank you for the experience we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Really fun, affordable activity. Highly recommend it for those with families. Be sure to get there 30min before your reserved time otherwise your slot will be taken

Great Experience riding Ramon! The camel behind us seemed very interested and kept burping in my ear. Although the ride could be longer😒.

Not much info about how to get to the site. So we were very confused. Turn out there are two main entrances to get to the camel safari, one is through the gate next to the car park, another entrance was right on the opposite of the site, across the dried out river bed! We wasn’t sure at the beginning so we walked all the way to the the car park gate on the northern side of the site. It was quite a bit of walking (about 5 -10 mins. No sign or anything, so we were a bit worried.It was a Sunday in early November. We found Plenty of car parking space along the road. I suggest you to look for those spots before deciding to pay for the indoor car park.It was fun and an easy ride on the two seated chair on the camel. Much nicer than riding one ( we did it for an hour in the Sahara ouch!) to be honest it didn’t feel that much special compared to our experience at the Sahara desert but we still very much enjoyed it. €12 pp for 30 mins is not bad for a fun activity especially with the kids during a holiday. The pictures are good show offs to your friends aha!The only sad thing is you can’t actually see the big sand dunes up close. You still need to walk up the dune to see the spectacular view. best route to reach the sand dunes safely is by following the path where right next to the camel safari site. There are signs telling you to stick to the dedicated path but most people just walk anywhere they wanted anyway. No one says anything.The camel seemed well fed and in are in good healthy the only concern I had was the metal mouth guard. It didn’t look comfortable. I hope they have been treated well by the business owner.

Easy to get to. It turns out riding camels is very bumpy 😆. Nice people at the premises. You can buy photos of you riding the camel for 5 Euro, which is cheaper than many other places/with other animals. I recommend buying a stuffed camel afterwards, quite good prices! It is difficult taking pictures yourself while riding as it is bumpy; you don't want to drop your phone 😉. Impressive sand dunes.

Great experience. Would advise getting there early to avoid hour long queues. Even got some photos and a camel teddy

Enjoyed the ride. Amazing staff. Souvenir picture just €5. Hard to find the place. You are guided into the area but not really know where it was really located.

Is a short ride, and thanks God was shot, I felt bad for the camel's. The experience is once in a lifetime, getting in touch with this beautiful animals and have a taste of what a caravan ride feels like in a desert is something you need to check on your bucket list. You will see 3% of the desert, so prepare yourself for a separate trip to enjoy the desert.

Beate was an excellent host, the camels are incredible and the tour was very different from anything else we did on the island. Worth a visit!

I am born in this island yet i hadnt been on this experience!! I totally recommend it for everyone... a beautiful 30mins ride through the dunes, feels like we are in some other place so serene and beautiful. Our camel was names Juan Tomas, and the man accompanied us throughout!!Open during the pandemicSo please enjoy it!!

Great staff and very pleasant reception. Nice ride with the camels

Very enjoyable camel ride. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of sign posts, so you will need Google maps to find the way or ask for directions.

Lovely experience, staff super friendly and the tour is really really nice. Thank you all.. Valeron is my favourite Camel :)The place has a nice sitting area and vending machine if needed.

Good place, the tours are still on and frequent enough with two "caravans", we didn't have to wait much. The staff is friendly and helpful. You need to have coins to buy drinks from the vending machines (change is possible), there two tents with concrete sitting all around for those who don't ride. The chairs are as comfortable as seen on the images 🙂
