Marrakech on sidecars

Sidecars are an innovative and alternative way of seeing Marrakech has always been a favourite with Millis Potter guests travelling to Morocco. Your guide and driver will offer you complete flexibility, trying to focus on the areas of Marrakech you haven’t yet seen. They will drive you on modern Ural motorbikes, reproductions of the iconic 1930s BMW side-car bikes, and you will ride in comfort in the attached sidecar.

You could start at the iconic ‘La Grand Cafe de la Poste’, exploring the colonial French quarter surrounding the historic Medina and souqs. There is something magical about having the wind in your hair, darting through the backstreets of this amazing city. Let a little old-school glamour transform your Marrakech experience. A little less glamorous, you might explore one of the local markets, entirely off the beaten track.

Onwards, your next stop is to whizz through the Palmeraie – the green belt that sits on the outskirts of Marrakech. Meandering through the palm groves, your driver picks a delightful picnic spot for a drink – perfect as a sundowner to end your day.

For longer rides, you could explore the dusty expanse of the striking Agafay Desert or even the Atlas Mountains. Start with an early morning hot-air balloon ride gazing over the desert wilds. As you land, you will see your sidecar and driver waiting to take you on a thrilling ride back to Marrakech in style.
